Default Changing the automatic gearbox oil

Hi All,

I have a question about changing the oil in the auto-gearbox.

Do you know the price for this service?
Do you know the oil type to be used?
Do you recommend any garage?
Do you know the interval?
Do you know what type of the gearbox is used within?

My car: 308 II SW - 2015 - 2.0 150 BlueHDi Diesel

thank you for any answers.
Regards,
Arek

Hi,
Thank you for a quick response.

That oil you referring to is for manual gearbox. Do you have similar for automatic gearbox too?

regards,
Arek

Sorry my fault for not reading properly,

I have been told there are 2 types depending on chassis.

Send me us a PM with your reg/vin number and we will see which one is correct for your vehicle.

Cheers

Price at the dealer is insanely expensive. They ask 130€ for 2 liters.

I recently changed the oil in my EAT6 gearbox.

You can use any of the oils listed here: https://www.onlinecarparts.co.uk/oenumber/9734r7.html

As you can see, I used Peugeot part number 9734R7 in the search. I personally bought Febi Bilstein and replaced 3 times because it's only possible to drain 3 of 7 liters.

But to be sure, post you VIN or check yourself on service box to see if the same part number 9734R7 is for your car.

I recommend getting a gearbox oil flush done instead of a standard drain and fill which only changes the oil in the gearbox and not the torque converter. Unlike Mara's post above, it replaces 99% of the oil.

Its a specialist machine used only by gearbox specialists therefore you will need to search and phone around. If you are unsure as to what the process involves, google it or search youtube and you will see its advantages. I used a place in Glasgow if that helps.

Interval wise, it is an Aisin Warner EAT6 gearbox which has been used worldwide in many different vehicles and strangley, the different manufacturers recommend different intervals. They range from 20k miles to never (Peugeot UK).

Well, I can't recommend flush, that's not official procedure recommended by Peugeot.

It's true that I did not replace 99% of oil, but it should be 70% minimum.

I did 3x3 liters, and between every change I would start the car and move trough all gears while the break is pressed, like procedure recommends and then next change.

The color change to the better was obvious with every oil change.

I think your misleading the Op by saying it isnt recommended. Nowhere does Peugeot UK or elsewhere say it is not recommended. They infact state the gearbox oil never needs changed which you have done. They do so to reduce maintenance costs for fleet sales and nothing to do with actually maintaining your vehicle.

The method you have used is perfectly fine but imo, not as effective.

I am not misleading anyone. Peugeot indeed says it's lifetime, which is marketing gimmick, since Aisin recommends it, but they do have official procedure for changing the oil which you can purchase on the service box.

It might not be as effective as a flush, but it is still official, so personally I would not do the flush nor recommend it.
