    Default Gearbox

    Hi.
    has anyone expierienced problems with the automatic gearbox.
    if i drive sedately i have no problems. if i rag her a little bit its when she plays up..she will select gears with a thud, almost like dropping a clutch change. then when i sit at traffic lights the car will dump into gear whilst stationary and when i accelerate away it will thud into gear...sometimes it will just again thump gear changes whilst driving like the car cant decide which gear it wants to be in.
    im no expert but could this be caused by a change in the viscsity of the gearbox oil, perhaps filled with air bubbles during hard excelleration?
    any help would be great guys thanks

    First thing to do is change the oil and filter and see how it goes from there. Its the cheapest place to start.

    Is it the AF33 you have ? If its a prefacelift according to your avatar then it is. As far as I know there is'nt a filter in the Af33 neither in the AF40 which I have. Try this earlier thread http://www.vectra-c.com/forum/showth...ight=af33+auto

    Im pretty sure there is a filter, but it may be a gearbox strip down to get to it. I was one of the unfortunate ones who's gearbox had to be rebuilt, an expensive job 5 years ago, probably not an economical repair these days. Thats why i say start off at the cheaper side, do you have any warning lights on the dash?
