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: renault espace auto gearbox problems selecting gears intermittantly

Hello
The engine and transmission in this cars drivetrain is fully electronically controlled by a computer called the PCM (Powertrain Control Module). Whenever a problem like this occurs the computer stores a record of the problem in the form of a fault code in its memory, to read these fault codes you must have the systems memory scanned with a special tool. Once the fault code(s) are read you then must perform the appropriate diagnostic testing to find and resolve the problem(s)

Kangoo, gearbox warning light comes on,will not change gear,if i stop and turn ignition off then back on again it is o.k.??....colin.


It's a faulty gearbox interlock switch. Very very common on Kangoos and related Renault models like the Clio.

Contact a Renault dealer; in some territories they were replacing them for free. Otherwise you'll have to replace the switch with a new one and it's really difficult to get at without dropping the engine and gearbox. If it was easy, it wouldn't be a proper Renault!

Thinking of buying a 1999 3L 24v auto Espace RXE


all renault automatic gearboxes are weak i find later boxes weaker than the older units the zf are no better, ive seen these fail at 25,000 miles and older boxes usually last for 60,000-80,000 miles but with such a powerfull engine i would suspect heavy where would occur especially if it has been used for towing or school runs where the box is working hardest changing up and down. ures will have the older gearbox. good luck remember 20 mpg tops lol...

I have put a new gearbox, clutch and driveshaft in my clio sport 2.0 16v but when i try to go to 5th gear it pops back out


hi it may be something as simple as a slight ajustment of the gear linkage. be sure all the moving parts on the linkage are not worn. failing this it is highly possible it is a bearing inside the gearbox. we have a manual laguna and an automatic espace and i'v heard that a good secondhand renault gearbax is as rare as hens teeth.
