I discovered this forum some time ago , but this is the first post. I am a retired horticulturist living in New Zealand and run a 1995 Espace 2.2 . I have had a niggly auto gearbox problem with it for some time now. Intermittantly , whilst driving normally , sometimes hot and sometimes just after starting a journey, the Auto light on the dash will light and the gearbox will change from 4th to 3rd and stay there. When this happens, if you stop the vehicle and restart the engine all is normal again and you may well travel many times with no reoccurance. I would love to hear from anyone that has had the same problem or could suggest an area that I could investigate to effect a cure. I find this forum most interesting,keep up the good work.

Hello and welcome to the forum.:)

Unfortunately auto box problems aren't uncommon on Renaults.....:rolleyes:.I don't pretend to be an expert on them but it sounds like you have solenoid problems.They are inside the gearbox and are not straightfoward to change,so I'd try and find an Automatic Gearbox specialist and get some advice from them.I'm lucky as in the area I live in we have one the top specialists in England and any auto problems we have at work go straight to them,but thats obviously not much good to you!:rolleyes:

Hi and welcome iam not sure but it sound like the box is going into limp home mode but how to fix it iam not the man for the job but i would think someone will help you soon.

Its sounds very like your going to have to go to the local dealer on this one for them to do a diagnostic check i hope this helps all the best
