Checked the oil level in my Nova box tonight, nothing came out the level plug so topped up through the breather with normal gearbox oil (as per Haynes), old stuff started to run out (eventually!) through level plug but it was red in colour - a bit like ATF fluid. Have I used the wrong oil? or do Vauxhall like to make their oil a fancy colour.
Its the 5 speed box I have (1.4i engine) just concerned as I also run a Manta GTE and this needs special GM oil but its not red!
