    Yes Ford charge over Β£500 to change the gearbox oil put oil and rdu oil

     

    we charge Β£200

    for 2 litres of gear box oil

    1 litre of ptu oil

    1 litre of rdu oil

    this includes the labour to carry out the job

     

    to add if the vehicle is already in with us for other works this offered at a discounted rate of Β£150 as the car is already here and working on it

     

    and to also add I have covered well over 50,000 miles in my car now and most of it covered in track mode( I only ever drive in track mode) the dash never once has told me to change the oil

    the hand book states change oil after 500 miles of track use.

    Gearbox & PTU standard oil from most manufacturers- should meet ford spec, RDU oil+additive or redline oil already has additive in it, think there are other makes that say thier oil is ok for RDU.

    Nateodog price of Β£200 or Β£150 if car is already in, is a very good price, the 3 oils cost just over Β£70 from opie oils(price last year).

    Yep you do as you have 3 oil changes

    Surprised you also didn’t say spark plugs don’t fit in the RDU πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

    It was just a price for comparison for you.

    If you spec the right oil you don’t need the additive

     

    x2 different types of oil lsd or non lsd

    if you are a first time buyer then it’s cheaper to use opie after that it’s normal trade price

    @Jamors really πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

    Interesting first post reminds me of Barnaby Elam such a foul mouthed child.
    Always calling people C@*TS and other obscenities if people disagree with him πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ‘

    I think the two are one πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
