    Default Does anyone Know this problem?

    Hi, i have a 52 plate(2003) vectra elegance (auto), 2weeks ago when i was driving, i came to a traffic light then when i was about to move off the car wouldnt pick up speed. i didnt know y. then it started jumping gears from 5 to 2 and the only way to stop that was to switch of the engine then swicth it on. So i took it to my local garage who put on computer and told me that he found 3 faults and that the engine wasnt communicating with the gear box, so he restted everything. i took it for a drive it was fine. But soon it started again but this time it wsnt stuck on gears but didnt change gears at the right time cause i could feel it. so i took it back to him and he checked it again and siad the sensor is gone. so i ordered 2 sensors. am still waiting for the parts, but now my car seems to be fine!! it is driving like alway so i dont no what it is? am still gona change the sensors and hope it will be fixed once and for all!
    if any one knows anyting like this please let me know.
    thanks

    my car!!

    Did he say which sensor was at fault?

    The sensor could just have been operating outside its parameters and is now behaving but its a sign of an upcoming fault so might as well change them if only to eliminate them should it happen again.

    Sounds like a similar problem I had with my 3.2 elite estate (2800 miles on clock). I tried to pull away from junction but nothing happened when I put my foot down!
    I took it to dealer who found nothing wrong. I cover 28,000 without fault ever happening again.

    A modern gear box should last well over 100k and the rest.
    My OL' Mk3 Astra was purring like a Panther when i sold her at 125k miles.
    All she ever had apart from the cometics,and springs,were a few poly bushes and a head gasket.
