will take around 3.5ltrs of oil.............

drain plug is near the front bellhousing right in the middle of the bottom of the box, just near the d/shaft area...........

If you`re new to scoobys theres a seperate dipstick for the gearbox under the drivers side of the intercooler about level with the turbo.
