Hi

Since we purchased this car we have had nothing but problems, it has cost us a fortune and still we have the same problem after driving. Today it happened again after travelling home - journey done approx 70 miles. We stopped for petrol and the warning light came on and the auto gears stopped working. It just decided not to change at all. This has been ongoing and we have no idea why. We ended up doing the last 25 miles in no auto gear and at about 46mph. Most annoying for drivers behind. We have spent loads on the car and still no-one can find a problem. Does anyone know what is happening and can we fix it ourselves. The temp on the car was on 4 dashes and did not increase. Before - we could turn engine off wait a few mins and it would seem to correct itself. Today it didn't. We are at a loss and hope someone can give us an indication of the problem. Bought the car second hand and dealer said it had a new auto gear box, but I am beginning to wonder. Car is a T reg.

Thanks

Frances

are you sure it's a 1,6?, if it is a T reg it will probably have the AD4 gearbox, not good and to be honest not worth repairing, a new or recon box would be the answer, it would be worth plugging it in to a diagnostic machine to see if there is anything else cause the symptoms. It could need the cable re set or be low on oil.

Hi

Sorry the car is a 2ltr and not 1.6, We have had the car for about 1 year. It came with no manual so we have no idea how to do anything with it, even the radio does not work! If it is low on oil, where would we find this in the engine ?

We can find engine oil dipstick but cannot find a way to check gear box oil. Is is hidden somewhere?

Thanks

Frances
