Hi friends,

The Gearbox in ZEN AX 99 Petrol model, is it AMT type ? or CVT or the fluid type ?
Any info / links about regarding this gear box will be much helpful..

When in D mode, I am not really feeling the 'head-shake' that happens in AMT gearbox shifting.
And the acceleration form start is slow in D mode, so just wanted to see if anything is wrong..

Any advice that I should keep aq watch, while doing routine service would also greatly help...
I downloaded the manual, it says about speed limits between shifting, and gear-oil type, couldn't find anything else in first look.


Thanks in advance

Hi @Nanofreak, thankyou..
@sumitsinha12 @leoshashi , nice to know that you people are around here, hoping to meet someday..


Btb, got to know that the gear box is NOT and AMT, neither CVT.
Its the conventional Torque-Convertor type, with valve bodies deciding the switching, and wet clutches taking the torque to transmission.
Looking for more info, Ill update here later on as and when it happens.
