To be honest, we have personally seen many non-Mini specialist don’t really know that an automatic transmission require 5.0 litres engine oil because the gearbox aren’t separated from the engine like other newer car. The maintenance details cover engine oil with filter change, cooling system, fuel tank, and other things to keep the car in perfect condition for many years.
