    confused auto box problem

    the car is a vec-c 150 diesel af40 6 speed box 05 reg seems to have trouble engaing 1st gear mostly when cold can also judder when slowing down from high speed . box has been flushed and refilled by local "gearbox engineer" £200 no warning on dash , would it be a good or bad thing to add a gearbox additive to try and smooth the gearchange . any one tried this or could the prob be something other than sticky shifters i e e c u or wiring probs.

    could well be a sensor , saying that your gearbox engineer would have checked that first ??? would'nt he ??
    These boxes are very notorious mate , keeep your eye on it , and if you want my advice buy the best warranty you can from somewhere like tesco or warranty direct .
    I am speaking from experience as am currently breaking my 03 plate for spares because box is fubar .

    Just had my 6 speed auto box(06) changed under warranty as the oil cooler in the box had leaked coolant, no error indicators at all, the only indication something was not quite right was changing from reverse to drive was slow all other gears works ok, gearbox oil was black when emptied.
    This was a familiar problem on earlier boxes I believe.

    Mmmmmm --- thought all the issues had been resolved with this problem now , I have done alot of research into this fault , maybe this is just a one off .

    I thought these issues had been resolved as well so yes it may be a one off but Vx authorised a new box immediately which could mean they were not surprised, surprised me I can assure you, took them 2.5 weeks to fix it though.

    I complained on a service that I had to put water in twice, no more than a pint and a half in total, that much seemed excessive to me.

    Seems ok now but we will see, going back for a levels check etc. next Monday
