Lubricants & Fluids
Technical Data L u b r i c a n t s & F l u i d s L U B R I C A N T S A N D F L U I D S Recommendations for all climates and conditions.
Engine cooling system Use Castrol Anti-freeze SF or Texaco XLC, with one part anti-freeze to one part water for protection down to -36° C.
NOTE: Recommended oils are complete in themselves and additives should not be used.
NOTE: It is essential to change oil much more frequently if the vehicle is operated under severe conditions, especially if deep wading is carried out.
Engine oil Use Castrol 10W/40 engine oil meeting specification ACEA A2. If Castrol 10W/40 is not available, Castrol 10W/30 can be used.
Be aware that different types of anti-freeze are VERY different from each other; even different types produced by the same manufacturer. The use of non-approved anti-freeze will have an adverse effect on the engine cooling system and, therefore, engine durability.
Engine oil temperature ranges 10W/30 will protect from -10ºC to +30ºC
Air conditioning compressor oil Nippondenso ND-8.
10W/40 will protect from -10ºC to +50ºC.
Air conditioning refrigerant R134A.
Automatic gearbox Use Castrol TQ Dextron lll or Transmax Z
Transfer gearbox Use Castrol Syntrax 75W/90. If this is not available, use Texaco Multigear 75W/90R.
Inertia reel seat belts DO NOT LUBRICATE. These components are lubricated for life during manufacture.
Battery terminals Petroleum jelly. DO NOT use silicone grease.
Differentials Use Castrol Syntrax 75W/90. If this is not available, use Texaco Multigear 75W/90R.
Door locks Use door lock and latch lubricant, Part No. VWN16075
Power steering and ACE Texaco Cold Climate PSF 14315.
