----- Original Message ----- From: Shane Dillow To: slitchfield@gmail.com Sent: Saturday, August 23, 2008 10:10 PM Subject: S reg Auto gear box fault Hello My name is Shane and i own a 2 litre auto Scenic on an S reg. I work in a police garage that is equiped with all the latest diagnostic equipment but i have a gear box fault on my 2litre monaco scenic auto at home and haven't been able to get the vehicle to my place of work due to the gear box only engaging drive for 30seconds to a minute at a time . you have to then leave the engine switched off for a lest 15 minutes then it wil engage again for the short time. I changed the gear box oil (putting in 4liters of dextron2) and have used a spray can auto box cleaning fluid .The Renault dealer we (at work ) have a parts account with have sent me a parts diagraim of the electronic's of the gear box but the service department and Renault uk will not give me a list of fault codes or any help on solving my problem .. I have had a word with the work shop and the think it could be a solniod problem - but as i can not get launch home to use on it as the work shop is open 24hrs. Can you please help or point me in the right direction please . I have space to take the box the part ,but it is still in the car - some body at work side it could be just the filter causing the problem as the oil isn't traveling through freely but this does not sound right. Yours most thankfully Shane Dillow

Cause for the fault may depend if vehicle is automatic or manual.

On both manual and auto:

Transmission fluid check is also a basic maintenance that should beperformed whenever you have problems with trans, even if fromdescription it does not look as a problem with transmission fluid. If fluid is ok, usually if transmission fluid is ok, then it is the transmission gears defective, and they do not synchronize well anymore. In this case you replace whole transmission box.
Transmission new replacement is quite expensive, better finding an used one.

On auto:

Often this kind of problems on autiomatic transmission vehicles are caused from faulty throttle positionsensor, you find out by connecting a code reader to your car computer.
throttle position sensor tells to your transmission control module howyou are using the throttle, so that the car automatic transmission canshift to right gear, when this is faulty often you have transmissionfaults related to engine rpms and temperature, this can explain a transproblem happening only when engine is hot.
In some case it is not the sensor, but the computer module controlling transmission that is faulty.
To find out cause for the problem you need to connect a code reader to transmission module and to main computer module (ECU).
The code reader will return fault codes that allow to locate the problem. this kind of job can be done at any qualified garage.

The TPS is usually placed behind throttle pedal, or inside the engine,depending on the model. A basic code reader (scanner only , no check onfiel volume/pressure and engine performance) can be purchased at a goodcar part shop for about $250.
If you want to DIY, ar at least to dothe diagnostic, depending on what the fault is.

you will need a servicemanual for your vehicle, Try the Haynes manual .

Regards

Yes a plugged filter can cause this problem. and that is why it will work for a short time. (until it sucks up debris and plugs again)
drop the pan there will be some materal in the pan but not alot. if there is alot its a sign there may be bigger problems

i have done this many times and cured the problem.
when you changed the oil was it very dark?
let me know if i can help any more might be able to get a parts diagram

    the immobilizer system on a Renault only kills the ignition and wont start. please dont give answers if you have no idea what is going on
    this has been a problem on this site. idiots giving advice on somthing and are just guessing. no answer is better than a bad answer.causing the customer undue stress. auto repair problems are confusing even with good advice.

    sorry sir this i just needed to be said.
    and good luck with your fix.

Hi Shane, I'm glad to help!

Shane, anytime you have a disabled message, it means there is a problem within the system that the message is for. You'll need to have the codes checked to see what is causing it. Hope this helps and have an awesome day Shane.

Drove to nashville tn from columbus ohio on Friday august 14, car has been sitting since then. Had a friend pick me up at airport today and check engine light was on. It has not been driven since August...


the engine light can come on for many reasons.....from your petrol cap not being put back on properly to a major engine fault......so it is hard to diagnose what it might be....if you take the car to an auto parts place, some will read the code for you for free, and then you can make your decision from then....this is the only piece of advice I am able to provide with this information....

The thick cable for the auto release is probably severed where it is subject to continual bending when the boot lid is opened. Expose the bundle of wires by unwrapping the covering and look at the wires. Had this problem on a 155.

Voltage intermittent, engine missing at all speeds, affect auto trans. shifting, kills hot or cold


The charging system, pedal, and sensors have been checked. The trans. problem and missing problems were the original problems and when my mechanic finally sent me to Chev. none of the problems " choose to show themselves." I should know on Mon. if my mechanic has solved the problems with the greater number of symptoms. Keep me in your files. More later-  Bill

S reg bmw 318si


It is a transmission related problem. It could be electrical, transmission or... nothing. The trans prog message cause the E34 to run in 3rd gear only, that is the reason wht you feel the car has no power. Check:
1) Turn the car off and wait 10min - 2) Main power relay, power to trans control module - 3) Gear selection switch - 4) Program switch (Manual or Auto) - 5) Computer box - 6) At last, the transmission.
