Question about Cars & Trucks
It sometimes happens in 4 th gear too. The car is telling you to change up but then can't cope with it! On my old Leon, I could drive in a higher without any problem. Took it back to where I bought it from & got the mechanic we use to look at it. They've plugged it in, but showing no fault. its still economical but I can't get my head round the fact that it can't cope with changing up when doing around 1500 rpm at around 50mph I'm pretty sure that's right! and the car is telling you to change gear!! Any ideas as my warranty runs out in a month?!
This is not something that a mechanic would necessary be able to solve, as it sounds more like a sensor that goes to the transmission.
I would contact a transmission shop and explain what it's doing to them. A shop like AAMCO should be able to diagnose it properly for you.
The other alternative is to bring it to a dealer for diagnosis. Dealers specialize in the specific manufacturers of the models of cars they represent, and are much more familiar with what goes wrong with them. They can often give you a diagnosis very quickly, where a general mechanic cannot.
