What is the really (ridiculously!) long dipstick on the centre right of the 3L V6 engine?
I assume its for the gearbox oil is it?
How does one fill this up?
don't tell me down the dipstick hole!  Rolling Eyes

Correct and yes, it is down the tube.  Laughing

Thanks Lewis,

i've actually just seen your post re changing the fluid here http://www.MDOCUK.co.uk/forums/viewtopic.php?t=49488
I had a quick check of the oil on the stick at the weekend and the level looked okay, but I'd be better dripping a bit of it on some paper to see what condition it is in...

If I do decide to have a go at changing it myself, being an absolute mechanical numpty, can you please circle where the drain and fill holes are on your pic below please?

No rush...

That photo is of a 2.8TD engine sump, but your V6 should be similar, the drain plug is the bolt sited at the back end, in the centre of the image.

NB: it is magnetic so may have bits of engine swarf stuck to it on removal.

As mentioned previously the fill hole is the one in the tube the 'really (ridiculously!) long dipstick' is in. †Wink

Thanks Lewis,

Yes, I don't know why I asked about the fill hole when you'd already told me! It was late I suppose...
