    Default Gearbox downshift harsh.

    Hi all,

    Hope you can help.

    Have had this problem for a few weeks, when cold the car shifts down from 3rd to 2nd and is harsh. I'm assuming changing the gearbox oil will help.

    My car is a Vectra C 2003 53reg automatic gearbox z22se engine.

    When I change the oil how much shall I fill it up by and is vauxhall oil ok. Has some one got a pic of the bottom of engine drain plug and. what type it is torx or Allan key.

    Sorry about all the questions but I would like to do this year

    Thanks all
