    Vehicle : Vectra and a Signum

    Trim : top of the line in both

    Engine : Z18XE,Z19DTH,Z20NET

    for the gears you need to drain out the gearbox oil, all 3.2 litres of it and refill it with only 2.4litres, this is the official vauxhall fix for this issue.. I used fully synth Castrol SMX gearbox oil when i did mine

    it could be the linkage that needs looking at but you can do the oil yourself and if anything it leaves the gearbox with the correct level of oil and will only help it. as you currently have a process of elimination to go through its worth doing anyway and it may sort it.

    Assuming you have the 2.0turbo if it is your engine code is Z20NET and you have an F40 gearbox for future reference.. Some people thing the F40 is notchy anyway, personally i think its fine and find the F23 to be worse..

    If you do a search on here for linkage you may found some info or somebody who has played with the linkage may eventually look into this thread.
