    Default 2.2 auto drive problems

    A family member all the way down in Cornwall has got a preface elite auto , it is a 2.2 and was driving fine and then lost all drive however he switched it off and back on and drive was restored for about a minute
    Now if you start the car when cold drive is there but goes again straight away and does not come back unless your leave the car to sit a while
    My brother in law has tried changing the speed sensor and the fluid is nice and pink
    Any ideas ?

    Is the relevant fault light not on, indicating a problem so the fault code(s) can be read out?

    To be honest his technical knowledge is not the best , apparently he went to vx and got the sensor , when he told vx that there was 2 sensors that looked the same he was then told it is a universal sensor and could be used to replace either one which does not sound right to me .
    Apparently the sensor he replaced with the new one was tucked under the battery

    Let's hope not , I have already told him if it comes to it he would be better off just buying another car
