Selespeed fluid
« on: March 28, 2015, 10:46:39 PM »
Hi every one. Need to top up selespeed fluid. I went to buy selespeed fluid today at Repco, Autobahn and supercheapauto. Couldn't find anywhere.
At Repco the girl found selespeed fluid in their system. It was around $34 for 1 litter and she said system will take 0.6 litter only. But the bottle has steering and suspension icons. I didn't buy. But I forgot to take photo of it. Brand was penrite. Other stores complete refused to recommend anything as they couldn't find anything from Castrol penrite or other manufacturers websites.
Any one tell me what to buy. How to explain them
Or tell what exactly to buy.

The girl was right, Penrite make a 100% identical & compatible fluid to the Alfa Selespeed fluid - LDAS

Autobarn usually always have it in stock as it is a replacement for many of the modern European models.

It is clear green in colour, cheaper & more easily available than Alfa fluid.

Not sure but from my bad memory. It seems like one them was recommend by Repco Girl. I didn't buy because I seen those steering oil and suspension icons on it. Confused me. I was unable to explain, what do I need. What do I ask what I need? Some of them never heard about selespeed fluid. They asked me what is this for, engine or gearbox of transmission.



These photos are from penrite website.

I checked in Autobahn and that's what came out for my car  on little tab in fluid/oil area. Engine Oil, Gear oil, steering oil, Transmission oil, brake oil and coolant
I understand all others but what is ATF DX-III for?

Hi mate.

No further discussion needed on this topic. Put the LDAS fluid in. It is the correct fluid.

Problem solved for you there.

Thanks every one. That was the same fluid that Repco girl was giving me. But I didn't buy.
I will get it.
Thanks again.

Hi my friend what oil do you use for your selespeed. I donít think any of the car parts places stock the tutela. So which other option is there.
