There is no filler or level plug and the gearbox needs to be filled with the correct amount of oil, measured out and poured in through the vent in the top of the gearbox. It should be a bit low, but don't worry - we'll add more shortly. Oh, and what type of oil is it? You may also choose to pre-fill the filter with as much oil as you can; it's up to you. Shown below is what your view of the oil draining will look like. As well as managing the gearshift patterns, the electronic controller monitors and controls a number of parameters in order to ensure maximum active safety for vehicle occupants and prevent gearbox damage. In models fitted with the 2. Phil Nuttal A I would certainly go ahead and change the — it can only be a help to the longevity of the unit.
How do I check the automatic transmission fluid level in a 2001 2. The transmission in your C4 is referred to by Citroën as a Controlled Manual Gearbox and the oil they recommend is 2. Currently get my thrills co-driving a friend's 914. Q I would be grateful for your help on a maintenance matter relating to my Citroën C4 1. Re repair manual, I really have no idea.
I learned a few things along the way which I have documented here, and I hope this makes your first oil change a pleasure rather than a pain. Tighten to 22 lb-ft with your torque wrench, which should be the equivalent of about 2 to 3 full turns after the gasket makes contact with the pan. This is done after lifting off the dust cap and may require the removal of the battery and battery tray to gain sufficient access. Make sure to lightly oil the gasket on the new filter before installation. . Please note that many of us choose to hand tighten the filter to 1 full turn after contact, and have not seen any problems associated with this method as of yet.
Ok some time ago I changed the gearbox oil on my 2ltr Hdi. I think it was semi synthetic. I supposed that the dipstick cost £0. The selector lever and offset gear grid ensure smooth gear selection. That said, it will probably get done - redundancy is pending - as soon as my firm get their act together and decide when they are actually going to fire me I might have some time on my hands to do these types of job.
I'd also recommend changing the filter and oil at the same time. I would not recommend you try to replace the actuator oil as the hydraulic system which runs at 37 bar needs to be activated using specific diagnostic equipment. Automatic mode relies on a number of programmed gearshift patterns, to adapt the gearbox automatically to the driving style economy, medium, sport, etc. The disc diameter is 230 to 242 mm, depending on the type of engine. Check the engine oil level on horizontal ground with the engine having been switched off for at least 15 minutes. When you switch the ignition on, the engine oil check is displayed for a few seconds on the instrument panel screen.
If so, could you please tell me where to find the filler and drain plugs, in terms of both the actuator and the gearbox. I don,t remember there being any problem with access or identifying the right plug. The problem is that there is little information on how to do this. Get someone to sit in the car with its engine ticking over and in gear. If you change the oil when hot above 125 degrees F I suggest the use of Mechanix gloves to prevent burns. In addition to a fully automatic mode, this gearbox also offers manual sequential mode. It takes just under 2 litres for a full change, and when you top up try to get the car level otherwise you overfill - bearing in mind you will have it jacked high on that side to take wheel off, so lower it down! This relieves the pressure and many believe that it helps the oil flow much faster, helping contaminant removal as well.

As an additional safety measure, the selector position is indicated on the instrument panel. I'd not use it personally. It must never exceed the maximum. Even if you choose to let the oil go for 10,000 miles between changes, try to change the filter at least twice as often. The controller dialogues with the engine control unit and inputs data from a number of sensors in order to control the gear-change and lock-up systems.
