Was just after a bit of advice if possible please! I have recently brought an 06 plate Vecta 1.9 CDTi Auto (my first Vauxhall). To cut a long story short when I got it home after driving for a few miles it was evident there was a problem with the gearbox when it got warm (hence didn't notice on the test drive) the revs would come right up and it would slam into the next gear. This has now been rectified at the expense of the garage who sold me the car (by an independent gearbox specialist).
The guy who did the work said it was something to do with the valve body assembly which was replaced and as I wasn't footing the bill he chucked me a recon torque convertor in too for good measure! The work is guaranteed for 12 months and he has advised me to drive it as much as possible in the meantime while the box 're-learns' its program then take it back after 800/1000 miles and he will plug the laptop in and check if everything ok.
Now the real point of this post is that after 225 miles or so the car suddenly went into limp home mode with the spanner light while on the dual carriageway doing 65/70 mph, I pulled over and switched off/on again - no spanner light. I carried on a few more miles and it did it again so did the same and - pulled over switched off/on and again no light. I drove home the rest of the way (15 miles) without any problems and went out again later in the day (20ish mile round trip) and everything was fine. Car seems ok ever since and drives fine on various journeys.
The only thing now is that in the mornings the spanner light is on after I start the car and stay on until I drive the car maybe 100 yards then goes off, won't then reappear for the rest of the day regardless of number of re-starts.
Just wondering if anyone had any thoughts, whether I should give the gearbox place a call and take it back early or whether it sounds unrelated to the original problem?
Sorry if the above is a bit of a ramble but would rather give the full story lol! Any advice greatly received!
