Vauxhall astra 1.8 auto will change up the gears starting off but when in d4 wont change down have to put it into 3 2 1 manually aalso the light with the spanner is on


take the vehicle to your local fault code reader and plug the vehicle in to diagnostic equipment and go into the gear box control unit just like the E.C.U but for the gear box this should tell you any faults if this does not come up with any thing then try draining the oil and refilling with fresh I have known auto boxes play up just from old box oil if you are saying you hav a light on the dash then to save your self time messing with gear box oil (witch has a really nasty smell) get it plugged in first to eliminate electrical faults first hope this help good luck

When its cold it seems to slip out of gear rather than change to 3rd. aafter its warm it seems to run like a top


It will be good to have the gear box oil changed to confirm that the oil within is overused.
If the oil change solves the issue , then have the oil changed once again after the car runs for few months so that the gear box lubrication comes good.
if not the gear box has to be opened to check for faulty links or notches.

The gear shift, (on the steering column) has become stiff. It still works but is stiff.


The gear change at the end out side the fire wall goes back to a x shaft and on to the side of the auto box, so take off the Gear box end and then try it,If still stiff then its due to lack of lub (oil) so lub with engine oil on all bushes and under the Steering wheel, play with it till free an easy.
Reconnect and test run.
IF its free then the problem is in the Auto-Gearbox and thats a lot more
of a problem and you either have to get it done be the Auto box shop or try it your self,and thats a shaft that goes into the valve body housing
in the pan and thats a big job,not the sort of thing you want to try
beleave me.Let me know how you get on RON

Problem: Vehicle will not shift out of 2nd gear.


Well the main problems are just a few
1 auto box has a pump lock up due to oil in trans .
2 .the Filter in auto box sitting on the pick up pipe inside the oil pan'dirty also No1 above.
3. Body valve also in bottom of auto gear box which changes gears when the revs are at the right speed ,have pistons and valves in side which have to move when pressure is on and your is not changing
because the pistons could be stuck in 1 of 5 places
you could trying to fix it your self but if i was you i wouldent even try. so take it into the Auto shop and get it checked out now before it gets worse (Sorry)
Let me know how you get on Ron

MY G6 SEEMS TO BE SHIFTING THROUGH THE GEARS HARD. ITS LIKE IT JERKS FROM ONE GEAR TO THE NEXT. IT IS AN AUTOMATIC TRANSMISION WITH ABOUT 55,000 MILES ON IT. WHAT COULD BE CAUSING IT TO DO THIS


YOUR problem is that the pump in the auto matic gear box which works the gear changing and forward band ,either isent getting enough trans oil ,or the filter OR body valve in the pan on auto box is not alowing the pistons to operate as they should
SO the answer is to take it into the auto matic people and let them sort it out for you as if you try to fix it your self and you could do a lot of damage and then you would be up for a new g/box assy, Ron

Dose the engine oil top up the gearbox oil in the toyota rava4 19


NO the engine oil only tops off the engine it self and the gear box uses a different oil and to top it off and check is different from the engine dip stick. Good luck and your manual should tell you when it's time to service your gear box oil.

BMW 523 Auto gerbox when cold change from 1 to 2 gear is hard


hello there

The problem is with the gear oil. To keep ahead of the rest BMW started what they call life time oil for their gear boxes, though that sounds great it doesn't really work in reality, they have now gone back to recommending a gear oil change every 60k miles.

In short you need to change your gear oil and soon, the oil in your gear box is no longer effective and will damage the gear box. You'll need about 5 litres for your car and costs around £15 a litre, expensive stuff!! I had the same problem with my 328i auto, the dealer was clueless and kept quoting the lifetime oil, I changed the oil and the problem has gone and it's so much smoother.

Hope this helps, please don't forget to rate me.

I recently had a new clutch fiited on My peugeot 406 GLX 1999 model, and lately the gears have been stiff.


this could be 1 of 4 things

you have become use to change characteristics of the old well worn/broken down oil - but even so new oil should not be excessivey stiffer

incorrectly adjusted clutch - although 406s had a self adjuster cable

incorrectly installed clutch

or most probably

wrong gear box oil - i have experience this, garages will use one grade/type of gear oil - check what spec your car is meant to have and change it - it made a huge difference on my peugeot

the oil filler and drain are accessible by removing the road wheel on the gearbox side of the car

Gear box oil


So you have a manual and you want to change the gear box oil right??? May i ask how many miles this car has on it?? You really hardly ever need to change gearbox oil. Check this oil by taking the plug out of you transmission. If this oil is clean and has a brand new look to it do not change it. The only time these oils really need to be completely changed is when the car has been in high water or the gear box has been rebuilt so for your peace of mind if you just have general wear on this car, you probably are just throwing money down a crawdad hole ha ha
