Is it stick shift? or automatic? If it's manual it's one of the gears is gone bad, no amount of oil changes will fix that.

How to prevent the transmission from damage
(The filter usually is screen type and can be cleaned when remove bottom cover. but this is not to be done at regular maintenance inspection.)
- Regularly check your parking space for leaks. Doesn't matter, is it the engine oil leak, power steering fluid or transmission fluid; if you discover any, get it fixed before it caused something serious.
- Once in a while check the transmission fluid level and condition. Not all cars however have the automatic transmission dipstick, in some cars, for example, in late Volkswagen models, the transmission fluid can only be checked by the dealer. Consult with your owner's manual for details. If the transmission fluid level is too low, there is a leak somewhere that needs to be fixed.
- Change the fluid as often as it said in your owner's manual or when it becomes too dark (rather brown than red) or dirty.
Also, keep in mind that an automatic transmission can not be drained completely - there is always some transmission fluid left inside the transmission (the torque converter, in the valve body, etc.) which means you only can change about %60 of the fluid at once. This is one more reason to change it more often.

- Use only the same type of the transmission fluid as specified in the owner's manual or on the dipstick. Some vehicles (e.g Dodge Caravan) are very sensitive to fluid type
- Never shift to the Reverse or Parking until the car comes to a complete stop.
- Never shift from the Parking mode when engine rpm is higher than normal idle.
- Always hold a brakes down when shifting from Parking.
- The automatic transmission can be damaged if towing with the drive wheels on the road. Always use a dolly or place powered wheels on the towing platform (if the vehicle is front wheel drive - tow it from the front leaving rear wheels on the road.

SOURCE: Gearbox fault of Jaguar S Type

unfortunately when that code, and that gear box fault light comes on, its pretty much game over for the transmission. It only a matter of time before performance of the transmission gets worse and worse. BUT that transmission is VERY easy to replace, i would check out a few trustworthy independent shops to give you a better price! I am usually a die-hard dealership, having been working at this jaguar land rover dealership for the last 2 years, but you are pretty much for sure going to be a cheaper price on the labor and like i said it is a pretty easy task.

My only precaution MAKE SURE IF YOU GETTING A USED TRANSMISSION THAT YOU GET SOME TYPE OF WARRANTY ON IT. Too many times have I seen customers loose thousands of dollars paying someone to put a used engine or transmission and have it fail almost right away.

SOURCE: Renault gearbox warning light on ...

There is lots of people out there that think the problem is to do with a pressure switch. In a way they are right. As the transmission fluid gets old it's viscosity and properties change. It gets grippier and allows for fluctuations in the pressure in the gearbox.

The best thing to do before sending it to an automatic transmission specialist would be to give it an oil change

it needs 3.5 litres of Type-D transmission fluid. Do not use anything else contary to what you might hear will work. I had the same problem in mine where I could neither put my foot down or remove it from the accellerator pedal without the gearbox going into limp mode.

After the oil change the gearbox has been perfect. the oil only cost $34AUD for 5 litres. Drain all the oil and place 3.5 litres in the gear box.

There is a plug with a square hole that is the filler plug on top of the gear box.

On the bottom of the gearbox there is a filler plug and if you look closely there is a hex head behind that. To drain the gearbox you must undo the outer hex head which is the drain plug/fluid level tube.

SOURCE: I have a Gearbox malfunction linited performance

9 time out of 10 it is either (1) computer glitch; (2) the input speed sensor; (3) a wiring short; or (4) neutral safety switch. If your tranny operates fine even with the message (the message may disappear after a few starts), that means the problem is most likely with one of the above, rather than the tranny itself. Your car generates error codes that a Saab deal with a Tech 2 Scanner can read. That will pinppoint the error source. Good luck.

How do I put gearbox fluid in ? Where is the level glass? I have a 1997 mitsubishi magna


Gearboxes usually have no oil dipstick / looking glass. On the side of the gearbox there's a bolt with (brass) washer. This is where the gearbox oil goes. To check the level is to stick one finger in downwards, when there's no oil at this level its usually too low.

On the bottom of the gearbox there's a similar bolt with washer to drain the old oil. The bolt can be magnetic - and can look a bit like a mushroom. Tiny particles from the gears stick on there - this is normal. Large bits of metal can be a cause for concern.

Always use the specified gearbox oil - wrong oil makes changing gears hard.

I have burned out 2 lo beams on each side of my 2004 Saab convertible in only 40k miles of driving. Why so many burn outs?


If any oil gets on a halogen bulb (this includes oil from fingers when it is installed) the life of the bulb will be drastically shorter than an un-contaminated bulb. Just one possibility. A very likely possibility.

1997 saab 4 cyl non turo give check gearbox light


Take it back to the Dealer........Their Problem not yours.
It is possible that a plug was removed during the service and at some stage the ignition was switched on before the plug was reconnected , this would cause a check light and the computer would store this until the light was reset.
Hope this helps.
