    Default 2.2 annoying problem with Auto

    Hi ive had my Veccy for 2 year now and ever since ive had it it has had a little annoying problem its just driving me up the wall now as my missus took her test in it and was nearly failed as the test instructor kept thinking she was doing something wrong


    Ok as Auto owners know if at a junction or traffic lights the car switches into a kinds neutral mode whilst the footbrake is applied then once its released the car shifts back into gear ok my problem is when it shifts into 1st i get a kinda jolt and its getting more violent

    is there a fix for this?

    many thanks

    How many miles has it done?
    Is the fluid level in the autobox low?
    Does the autobox oil need changing?

    A lot of clunky autobox problems can usually be down to old and dirty oil.

    Had my ATF fluid changed at the last sevice. Every time someone has a problem with the auto box I hear "What's the fluid like, has it been changed" It's easier just to take it somewhere and get it done, it's not that expensive. If you haven't got a leak the level is probably OK but I would get it changed. Having said that they all seem to have that judder, mine does and the taxi I was in recently had it as well.
