Today has been oficially the worst day of this year.
first i damaged my new Barcelona FC MESSI jersey in the garage.
second my team looses against his biggest rival (Real madrid)
and just as i thought it couldn't get any worse my car started with problems.
two weeks ago i made the fluid change.
there hasn't been any new problems (besides the fact that my car stalls very little when getting speed after stopping in heavy traffic (stop - go - stop - go....)
and now my car is "jumping" when changing from 2nd to 3rd both auto and manual.
i was reading in some web search results and i found one toyota PDF that has an image that made me a little worried.
it explains the levels of the dip stick and it appears to be the same dipstick design as the vectra.
it has 4 marks. the first is situated a few mm from the end.. then a second mark about 1.5cm (between those to marks it says COOL).. the third mark is about 1cm from the 2nd and the forth is about 1.5 cm from the third (between the 3rd and the 4th it says HOT)
when the mechanic filled my tranny fluid i said to him that it supposed to be between the second and the third marks (the tranny was already hot)
but now that i look at this image i found out that it is suppose to be between the third and the forth marks.. and this may cause harsh shifting..
but since the harsh shifting only ocurrs when changing from 2nd to 3rd i believe that it could be something else and i am very very worried.
I beg for someone how has had this problem before..
My car is a 2003 Veccy 3.2L V6 automatic with 62000km...
