    My wife has a ds3 1.4 litre petrol engine 54reg. Is the gearbox oil separate from the engine oil? If so how do we check the quality and quantity of oil? What oil do we use and how much oil would we need to replace the existing oil? We are novices at vehicle mechanics obviously!!

      Hello Nigel, at the first question, yes the gearbox oil is separate from engine oil. You can check the quantity using the dipstick, you can check the quality on a auto service, you will need special tools for that.

      For your engine the oil volume is 4.25 liters and you can use oil with viscosity 5w30 .
      If you have manual gearbox the oil quantity is 2 liters and you can use oil with viscosity 75w90 or 75w80.
