  • Astra j vxr oil change intervals

    hi there
    Anyone any idea on intervals for
    power steering fluid(and what type of oil)
    and gearbox oil ?

    Cheers!

    Best gearbox oil seems to be Fuchs Titan (eBay). Steering and brake fluid require either regular change (say every 2-3 years) or a hydroscope to measure its water content (they look like a turkey baster with a float inside). Both brake and steering fluid absorb water from the air so should be changed, as above ,for safety.
