|99 1.8 Possible to overfill an IB5 gearbox ? - jp147|
The 1.4, 1.6 and 1.8 litre petrol Ford Focus are fitted with the iB5 manual transmission whereas the 2.0 litre petrol and 1.8 litre turbo diesel are fitted with the MTX 75 transmission.
Because my Focus is a 1.8 petrol it uses the iB5 gearbox.
I have read conflicting reports on the internet that with some manual gearboxes it is possible to overfill the box with oil. I think they mentioned that if the gearbox has a hole for checking and also another hole for filling then it is possible to overfill with oil whereas if the box only has a single hole for checking and filling then it is not possible to overfill with oil.
Does anyone know whether it is possible to overfill the iB5 transmission with oil
