Hi Guys,
Ive taken into stock a 54 plate Espace 2.2Dci auto with a very clunky gearchange. Have had the box scanned at Renault who have found no electronic or programming issues with it. It is however running on D3 ATF and not Clip oil as they recommend. The renault tech thinks that it is unlikely to be an oil issue but cannot be sure. Has anyone out there ever come across this before? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Cheers
Gary

I have never know a auto box have gear change probs with no code in clip, was there any in the engine ECU as auto's will simulate a problem if there is a running fault. I would re scan again or drive with clip to measure output speed and input speed sensor values.

Hi, I have checked with renault dealer who now inform me that gearbox oil temp was showing as -48! but they forgot to mention it.
Have also spoke to my lube supplier who sent down the D3 based on VIN, and they have now agreed that the oil is incorrect and will pay a warranty claim on the labour to flush and refill with clip oil.
As for running issues, the car seems fine with no codes in the ecu, or at least thats what I have been told. I specialise in Toyota Estimas, where life is so much simpler..lol
