2008 Astra XR
Default Re: Looking to buy an Astra

When I pull the drain plug on the transmission, should I expect about half of the 4.2L capacity to come out?
No you should get close to 4 Liters if you drain it. 4.2 Liters is the drain and fill capacity. total capacity is close to 8L like 7.6 if I remember correctly. Are you checking it when it is Hot and engine running? That is the most accurate way to check it. Mine fluctuated pretty wildly when cold and idling for a long time.
