    confused Vectra C 3.2 auto box dramas!

    Hi guys,

    can't believe how much useful info there is on here for Vectras! I used to have a VX220 N/A which had a great forum but didn't know the Vectra would have such a big following.

    I've had a look through but can't seem to find anyone that has had the same problem.

    I've got a 2002 3.2 vectra Auto 66k full service history.

    It's from a friend who put it into a garage to get the alternator replaced. Since it has come back from the garage 3rd gear is not engaging in the auto box.

    I've checked the oil and it's clean and not contaminated.

    If you change up manually you can go up and down all gears except 3rd still. It just revs as if in neutral when 3rd is selected?

    Another thing I noticed is they removed the driveshaft etc to replace the alternator. There is a support half way along the driveshaft with the letters A and M on. These are not lined up together but not sure if this could make any difference?

    Apologies for the long post but I'm trying to get this done as the Mrs Renault is on the verge of expiring so she needs this going.

    Thanks, Scott.

    Vehicle : M5

    Trim : Nothing needs adding

    Engine : 5.0 V10

    Year : 07

    Mileage : 37000

    Default

    I think the A and M (although not sure what it means) is a red herring if all the other gears select you are best off calling an auto gearbox specialist to see if they might give you some clues, the veccie autobox normally takes time getting into gears and then in witha thump when its on its way and also normally gives only 5th gear on your type box as I recall if it was working ok before the altenator get it back and looked at and don't leave it to long.
