auto transmission problem


Recommended Posts

So the missus comes home and says theres something wrong with the car when she brakes. I take it for a drive , shifts fine, but when you brake slowly coming to a stop, at about 10kph theres a sudden clunk twice and the car stops very quickly without any further pressure on the brakes. Also the engine icon light has come on as has the red triangle exclamation mark, AND the check vsc light. Im fearing the transmission has had it. Any thoughts people? Its done just over 160,000k. Im in sydney as well, Thanks!

need to check codes  but it sounds like gearbox solonoids

a service wont fix it

you need to replace the gearbox
once the vsc light comes on and car tricks to codes theres really no turning back for that gearbox

the key is preventitive maintanence


if your in sydney bring it over and i can have a look at the car for u

but gearbox replacement inc labour supplied and fitted with a full service is 2800
