    Unhappy Auto gearbox thumping in and out of 3rd gear

    Hi all, new to the Vectra (6 weeks) just noticed thumping in and out of third gear in 6 speed auto box - 1.9 CDti 150, read many threads so far and fear the worst, car just out of manufacturers warranty but reported problem to VX dealers three days before hand - arranged visit to demonstrate problems and you guess it, none could be found or demonstrated. Problem appears to be first 10 - 20 minutes from stone cold, warm engine and box seems less of a problem. Any ideas please - would be very much appreciated, sharp knife and wrists ready as an alternative - only joking, honest.

    has it flagged a gearbox fault...??..if it has , then the answer is stored in the gearbox ECU's..and TECH2, or a similar system will reveal what the fault is..

    Thanks for the reply, Tech 2 has been connected and no faults where found, have driven about 300 miles today and gearbox has been generally fine, on this basis I am wondering if the colder weather over (particulalrly over the Christmas period has been having an effect), when it last happened outside temp was around 3 - 3.5 deg, today been around 8 - 9 deg, will keep an eye on this one.

    cold weather may point to problems with the valve body on the auto trans...

    Have you got a local automatic gearbox specialist ( yellow pages) that you could try..they often know FAR more about the automatic gearboxes than the VX Techs..

    Sounds like something I have on my beast...with a difference that is on 2nd gear not on 3rd.
    I might suggest a change of oil to the box...which I need to do BTW
