Freelander transmission fault ????

Broke down yesterday - seems to be transmission fault, felt like there was something coming through the floor and loads of knocking.

Fluid all over the bottom of the engine (not engine oil) - AA fella thought it was transmission fluid ??

Is it a massive job and do you have any idea on cost of repair ?

Got a mobile mechanic to look at it later today / tonight.

You will need to replace a new transmission, from your discribtion it seems that there is no point to fix the transmission.its better to get a new or reconditioned time and money.

Transmission/electrical issue?

You think it is in park but it read reverse because it didn't move With electronic transmissions you have to run the fault codes to find what is happening. Unless it is in park or neutral then nothing concerning the starter will work. If the TCM is faulty then servos/solenoids are not working and there will be no clutch pack or band operation and it will appear in park. Even the torque converter clutch will not be working and you will get nothing in the transmission.

2000 Freelander-window stuck in down after cable replace

Firstly check the wiring then motor is only working one way that means that the power is not being reversed to put it back up, switch the wires around from the switch if it go's back up then you know there is a wiring fault.

hope this helps

Get the clutch slave cylinder and master cylinder looked at.One of the 2 has failed.If the pedal goes to the floor or is very loose,this is very likely the cause.Not an expensive fix.Hope this helps

Transmission Slipping?

Putting it in four wheel drive does not eliminate the transmission. Honestly, it sounds like the transmission is on it's way out. A 4l60e in one of cars was acting the same way. It required a rebuild.
