    Default 2.2 auto gearbox problem

    Hi all,

    i have a 52 plate vectra C 2.2 LS and the auto box has developed a problem.
    when its cold it jerks when slowing down from 3rd to 2nd once warm its ok.

    now yesterday once the car wa hot the box went into some sort of safe mode. and was like stuck in one gear. i switched over to semi auto an could only select 5th or 2nd.

    if i turn the engine off then on again its okay again for a few miles.

    Would a oil change help as i dont know when it was last done, but it has full VXSH done 68K miles

    please help
    thanks

    probably an oil change will do .. but you have to buy some oil from the stealers,.. do not use anything else.

    ps. do you have checked if the oil is at max on the dipstick ?

    Start with getting the oil changed . ATF 3309 oil also used in toyota and saabs. If the oil hasn't been changed up to 68k miles, that could be the cause as there will be little lubrication left.

    Oh no, thats terribly bad luck matey.. That sort of repair cost has wrote the car off then I guess, or did you buy your car from a dealer with any sort of warranty..

    There was a recall on that issue by vauxhall some years back, did mine under the recall programme .
    The radiator seal fails and let coolant in the gearbox ruining the system, i think.
    its just a bad luck

    Spoke to the dealer I got it from and he thinks vauxhall are trying to scare me. So he's arranged for a local garage to do a gearbox fluid change.

    He wants to do this before negotiating my money back for the car. So going to garage tomorrow for this. I know it's a waste of time as it also will need a new rad.

    I asked vx about the recall but didn't get very far
