Re: A54 Engine Transmission (ZF25)

Hello Arno;


We replace the transmission oil and filter every year prior to the start of the season. I believe this is stated in the manual. Also, we fill the oil to the top (About an extra 2 liters) for winter storage. This is recommended in the manual to cover all gears to prevent rust and corrosion.


Happy Sailing;

I just uploaded the workshop manual for the engine transmission into the "/Files / Volvo Penta" section. I don't think there is a lot we can do about this thing ourselves as it needs lots of specialty tools to work on it.

One thing I did wonder about. Does anyone have recommendations about refreshing the oil in the transmission? I don't remember seeing any mention of this in the manuals.
