DP-SM gear oil

Recommended Posts

I have a 1998 242 weekender with a DP-SM Volvo Penta DuoProp. I went to the local dealer and purchased the Volvo Penta out drive GL5 gear oil. They told me that it should take about 2 1/2 Quarts. And after doing some research I found that it should take 2.4 ltrs (about 2 1/2 qts). I pulled the props and drained the gear Oil. (45 minutes)and tried to put 2 quarts in and the oil started comming out of the level screw hole. I checked the dip stick and it showed full, even after running the motor for about 20 minutes and putting it in gear and back to neutral several times. My concern is not having enough gear oil in the outdrive. I checked it with the outdrive down all the way several times and it still shows full.

You might want to have a certified Volvo Penta tech check it for you.

 

You can also call Customer Support at VP in Virginia at 757-436-5100.

 

Have your outdrive serial number ready when you contact them to correctly identify the specific gear ratio and fluid capacities of your unit.
