i have an espace 2.0 2002 auto which has just started to have a few gremlins in the gearbox, it races a bit in 2nd before moving into 3rd and when you put your foot down in 3rd it splutters as if there is not enough petrol going into injectors before it reaches top gear.. any hints, i have been told to check oil levels and it may be low on oil..

Hi you have the very same car and year as me it may be low on oil have a look underneath and if there is no visible signs of a leak from the box i would say not,There is now way of checking the oil level on our model its the dealer only iam afraid.Are you sure its a box problem and not a fuel problem just a thought all the best Donald.

First check the automatic fluid level, a low level may give the symptoms you describe.
Secondly.... I had a chat with a scrappy on another forum, he says auto boxes for Espace and Laguna are his most requested item.
Best of luck :)
