1990 Mitsubishi Magna Auto Gearbox disengaging

My car keeps disengaging the gearbox as i am driving allong as if i have put the car into neutral and then after between 5 to 50 seconds it just slips back in and drives again this is very annoying as i loose all momentum and have to pull over regularly. Also takes a lot longer to change gear(5 seconds) than it used to so once again i loose momentum i know something has died in the gearbox but am unsure what i have a feeling it is the tourque converter but it may possibly be the spider gear just not sure please help as i need my car back on the road asap

    i have checked the fluid and it is still pink so it shouldnt be that and there is often a grinding that makes me think it is more mechanical than the fluid

You are probably low on transmission fluid.
top it off by the dipstick while running in park. and you should be fine if it reads full, then your fluid needs to be changed or your filter is clogged. replace as necessary.if the problem continues after the fluid and filter have been changed then its time to have the transmission replaced or services.
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.

1990 magna gearbox putnew cluch presureplate throwout bearing new master@slave cylender gear change good untill i start motor then no gears can start in gear drive@change soon as car stops sticks in gear...


Well, it sounds like the clutch cylinder / clutch linkage is not properly adjusted or the clutch cylinder is not fully bled, or it is malfunctioning -- it's not fully depressing the pressure plate when the pedal is pushed down, therefore, the clutch is still engaged.

OD on Auto gearbox goes into neutral when cold


You need to have your transmission serviced. The fluid has gotten so thick in there that it builds up too much pressure and your transmission will either kick it out of gear or blow up. I'm glad it actually still works. Once the oil warms up it thins right out and it works no prob. Just service your tranny, and you'll be fine.

I have a NH Pajero. I drive normal for 20 mins and switch off the engine. When i restart the pajero takes 15 mins to start after the negine has cooled. it is automatic


Hi All

Does the engine turn over when you turn the key, if it doesnt it is the automatic park/neutral switch on the gearbox. This gets hot and the contacts seperate and no go.
Remove the gearbox switch, pull apart and clean, when putting back together, put a bead of silicon across the joint and put back. It will keep running for ages.
