This sounds familiar.. Is this the Jatco autobox? What mileage have you done? Are you due up for a change of gearbox transmission fluid?basitali said:yes all other gears show up properly but i think the car does not know it is in drive when you select d so it jerks when selected initallly then it drives fine 2-3 change sometimes is sticky but auto fluid also checked and that to is fine one other thing if u select d it will only show on dash display the last gear selected ie n or r or 4 or 3 or 2 then after 30-40 secs it shows blank please help
Well it's worth looking into. Check the service records to see if it's been done.basitali said:yes it has done 103000 miles i have not changed the auto fluid but bought the car at 92000 miles it had fsh so i asume the fluid had been changed
What is the engine's R.P.M at 105 km/h[64 mph].?If at 2100 R.P.M.,that is 5th gear.....if it is at 2800 R.P.M. then it is in 4th gear..basitali said:could anyone give me an idea as to why when from park to d the car jeks initally (may be it does not know it is in d) and it will not display in the dash that it is in d all other gears will display i also think there is no 5th gear
Haynes are great for cars that you can repair using a knife and fork anything more sophisticated and they do tend to fall down.Keith Alexander said:I wouldn't put to much faith in the Haynes manual, I don't trust the accuracy of the content more than about 75%
Sods law says the mule they use for the photos will be a manual 1.8 club saloon!
And why oh why are all the photos they take so badly lit, tiny and haven't they heard of colour yet seeing as they have virtually cornered the market I give them 3 out of 10 for most of their manuals
Just been thumbing through my Haynes manual for my Picasso trying to find out how to get a look at the aircon condenser not a mention of it anywhere!
All I wanted to do is verify where the leak is that the garage tells me I have :-(
