    I am pretty sure that I put about two litres of ATF fluid in mine - it's on a label next to the fill plug....

    It's ATF oil mate but check what colour the label is on the gearbox and google it

    Yes 1.7L of ATF. I'm pretty sure most Evo's have a big orange sticker on the gearbox (passenger side) that says ATF ONLY (3.0L M3 says MTF-LT1 or something).

    Redline is very, very good or castrol Dexron II or III will also be fine. Iirc II has been discontinued by Castrol so only III is available. Buy 2X1L bottles and you have a little left over for next time.

    Also, remember to open or loosen the fill plug first before you open the drain plug incase you you can't get it open or round it of etc... you don't want to be sitting there with no gearbox fluid and not being able to open the fill plug!!
