    Default Vectra C Z18 XER 1.8 Hatchback/Stationwagon not going over 4th gear

    Hi,

    recently my car is not changing gear automatically, its a Vectra C Z18 XER 1.8 Hatchback/Stationwagon

    with easytronic.

    Whenever I drive the car will gear to 3rd maybe 4th and then just stays there no matter how much I crank the gas pedal. I don't get any engine fault codes so was wondering if this could be that my clutch is faulty?

    an automatic gearbox like the on used on your car doesn't have a clutch...it has a torque converter... 9 out of 10 times, a simple oil top up is enough to sort the problem but maybe it needs more work. If it is the latter and if you can't remember when the auto gearbox was last serviced it might be time to have it removed and the stated checked of the parts...

    thank you for your comment, I was though under the impression that my easytronic car was basically a manual drive cars gearbox with electronics that made it shift gear?
    Not a full automatic. Also I asked the Vectra service provider a few years back how often to service this gear box and he basically said there was not a service interval set for this car on the gear box which I interpreted as no service needed?

    Sorry i thought you had a normal auto gearbox, didn't even know they had those on the vectra's... but the no service needed is not true... ,it would be if it had no moving parts... but it has and everything on a car that moves at sometime will need either parts replacing or a big service..

    back to your gearbox, if it is a semi automatic, it might be something as simple as a worn connector on the gear selector. But I still recommend you change the gearbox oil first, if the problem persists, the next thing that needs to be done is to take of the gearbox and inspect, clutch and pressure plate, CSC and of course the semi clutch mechanism.
