    Automatic transmission fluid change?

    Hope someone here can help with what the correct ATF is for my car?

    I have searched everywhere and come across shit loads of conflicting information???



    Ok i believe my car has the ZF box (323i 1999).

    Also the sticker on the sump pan is Green (pt:number 83229407807).


    Thanks

    Gearbox oil e46
    Orange label with ATF oil = Dextron II D.
    Green label with special oil = Synthetic Mobil SCH630 (BM) part number 81229407305. (never use syn or multi grade engine oils)
    Yellow label with MTF-LT-1 =no oil change necessary. (MTF 1 has been superseded by MTF 2, part number 83220309031).
    6 speed gearbox = MTF-LT-3, part number 83227533818.
    No label = SAE 80, (MIL-L-2105 or API-GL-4)

    Thanks Ronnie

    Is this only available from the sealers?

    I asked the monkeys at Halfords, needless to say they were clueless
