Default Transmission Fluid

Hi everyone,
I need fluid for the transmission in my Freelander. I live in Ontario Canada
& we have no texaco Stations here. The recommended fluid is TEXACO ATF N402. The Landrover dealer here charges 42.00$ a litre. Was hoping someone
out there would know of an alternative transmission fluid that can be used. The dealer won't help me at all. I need 2-3 more liters. Thanks a heap for any help.

P.S my email address is winnaferd57@Yahoo.ca

Try contacting your local Redline oil dealer he will tell you their equivalent (which will be to a higher spec anyhow) or come to that any local branded lubricant supplier as they all mostly can cross reference . HTSH

Default Re: Transmission Fluid

the relevant bit ?
After many nights of searching I found the following information.

The Jatco JF506E transmission is used in other vehicles under different names.

2002+ Volkswagen GTI
2002-03 VW Jetta
2004+ VW Golf
VW calls the Jatco a "09A" 5sp Tiptronic which calls for fluid part # G 052 990 A2

2002+ Land Rover Freelander
Land Rover calls the jatco what it is "JF506E" which calls for LRN402G aka Texaco N402 fluid

2002-? Mazda MPV 5f31j
2003-? Mazda 6 5f31j
Mazda calls the jatco a "5f31j" which calls out M-III ATF fluid (this is a specific mazda fluid)

Jaguar X-Type
Calls for the following fluid specs
Esso LT 71141; Shell ATF 3403 M115; Shell M1375.4; MERCON V XT-5-QM ATF; IDEMITSU K17; Jatco 3100 PL085

I then found the following fluid which has been tested and passes the specs for:
Volkswagen - G052 990
Land Rover - Texaco N402
Jaguar - Shell M1375.4 (also Idemitsu's K17 and BMW's LT71141)

These approvals are enough to make me feel very comfortable putting this in my X-type, but I added the info so you can decide for yourself.


The Fluid is: Castrol Import Multi-Vehicle ATF

It can be found online at partsamerica.com for $3.98

As the Castrol alternate the guy is suggesting is an equivalent to N402, and costs 3.98 USD, as against 40+ Canadian I thought you might be interested in the stuff..
