May be worth getting the gear box oil replaced. 'They have to have a very specific ammount of oil in them and its not like a normal box where you can chek the level by using the wing nut at the front of the gearbox.

My advice, take it to a local garage and ask them to replace the gearbox oil but mention that it has to be done correctly to avoid gearbox wear.


i seem to get this problem aaswel, every now n again..

as for gear box oil .. does that get changed at services at all?

my cars been serviced at right time since new but i dont know if gear box oil has ever been changed.. is it worth me getting that done?
