The following are the general instructions on the start of diagnosing any electronically controlled engine or transmission problem.

The engine and the automatic transmission (transmission control is only for automatics, engine is still computer controlled no matter the transmission type) in this vehicle are computer controlled and in most cases when a fault occurs a fault code is stored in the memory of the computer control module. There are exception to this, such as the Mass Airflow Meter and fuel pressure problems. What must be done is to have all the basic testing done such as a scan of the system for fault codes as well as a check with a live data scanner tool for engine functions that are not within range of normal, a trained technician is required to know what is correct and what isn't, then based on careful diagnostics done from a factory repair manual the correct part is replaced or the wiring repaired or the computer replaced (known as the PCM or ECM,ECU), which is very rarely the problem. Other basic checks must be done as well such as mechanical problems with the engine as well as engine state of tune and mileage on the engine. The transmission can have mechanical issues as well such as no gear engagement at all or a failed pump or other pressure related problems. Also engine mechanical problems can and do cause many drive-ability related problem such as rough idle and other symptoms.

Testimonial: "Dennis, totally agree with you on that. In deed we got to diagnostics and it showed a fault in the gear control unit(lever)- it must have a short circuit on one of the boards. Do you know where i can get a used piece? The truck specs are as below: chassis number:VF622JVA000104024 "

1st thing to do is test the system for codes, the problem is most likely a failed or stuck shift solenoid indside the trans, have you ever serviced the trans, sometimes a fluid and filter cahnge will cure these kinds of issues.

SOURCE: automatic gearbox won't engage any gear

if the fluid is full then the only thing it can be is either the trans range selector switch, the trans computer or a mechanical failure in the trans, u will need the system tested for any stored trouble codes.

hi from uk could you please give a little more info ? what make/model car ? has this problem occured suddenly? has car been layed up off road some time prior to this unable to select gears ? this problem sounds very much like the clutch drive plate is either stuck to flywheel hence question above ? or it is sticking on primary/spigot shaft for some reason and failing to disengage drive to g/box? how does clutch pedal feel ? you might try selecting 2nd gear with clutch fully pressed and h/brake on then try starting engine if engine starts ?runs then put slight revs on and slip clutch a few times this may work if plate is sticking? if you come back with update may be able to advise further

contact the service dealer and ask how to reset the immobilizer
the immobilizer probably activated when you changed the batteries.

Could be a broken motor mount. The vibration would stop when you are moving because the transmission mounts would hold the motor stable, when in nutral the motor would be relying on the broken mount

Renault Truck-420dci premium- Valve setting


think their hydraulic tappets on this and you squeeze them in to remove the oil then when engine is started they will readjust themselves ,now if engine hasnt had regular oil changes they become gummed up and will not adjust.if you have the other type which are shimmed then go for around 12 inlet and 15 exhaust this setting will suffice for nearly all engines except some older 60s GT engines with high lift cams like the ford capri or a stag .Best engine ever built for commercial use was the gardner ,better than the rolls royce used in the guy trucks with the cheften head ,ascot on the front .Alas the only thing we make in the UK nowdays of which we produce many and thats home grown religious nutters

Did they also change oil to a heavier weight? Turbos are oil cooled and require heavier oil to extrude heat. Check with folks who did turn install and if they didn't I think an oil change is needed.

I have no first gear on my renault master 2.5


Repairing the transmission gearbox in any cars or truck is one of the most difficult job. It needs
somebody with the expertise of a mechanic. We
cannot discuss this since the gearbox needs to be
opened. Your problem could be cause by a
synchronizing gear, defective bearing or bushing,
etc... A lot of things can happen in a gearbox. So, I
suggest that you take your car to the service center
and have this fixed. Besides, they give you a service
guaranty.

Does it smoke? Could possibly be sticking EGR valve. Remove and clean, or blank off and try running without it. If it runs better, this is your problem.
