Question about 2005 Renault R5
I have to be careful when driving to make sure the gears change, but most times when im going up a hill or put foot down (dual carriageway etc) my engine will clunk the car will lurch slightly, the auto light will come and a horrible loud noise comes out of engine.
I usually have to pull over, stop and start the engine and carry on with my journey.
I have a 2001 renault scenic 1.6 automatic. Any help would be great.
I understand this could be down to low transmission fluid - but dont know where to find this under the bonnet, new gearbox needed, or something else.
thanks in advance
The gearbox does on have a dip stick it has a filler plug up top and a two part drain plug on the bottom of the transmission.
What you do is once the engine is warm, with the engine running you remove the centre plug and is the gearboxs level is low nothing much will come out. Some will come out as the tube gets full from normal running. If it is high the excess will come out and will stop at the ring.
I had the same problem with my gear box. What I did was remove the tube plug and drain all the oil out of the transmission. You then fill it with 3.5 litres of "Type D" transmission oil. Nothing else. Not Dextron anything or their equivalent.
In effect you have just carried out an transmission service.
I didn't even bother checking the oil level as 3.5 litres is the amount you need to put in and the gearbox has been running perfect ever since. The new oil worked a treat. Snappy changes and the clunking change with the light on stupidity went away.
