    Default Sticking Auto Box

    Hi, Can anyone help. I have a 56 reg Vectra C 2.2 Elite est with a 5sp auto box with manual option. The car generally runs fine, but if I turn slowly onto a steep hill or do a standing hill start the box holds itself in first and wont change up. It only happens on hills so is fluid related perhaps? The only way it will change is by putting it into manual mode and changing gear which it does fine. It seems not to happen if your doing a reasonable speed at the start of the hill. Any ideas welcome thanks.

    Just had mine replaced on my 06 2.8T Elite due to coolant in the gearbox oil, there was very little indication there was a problem, just noticed that when changing from R to D the pickup was sluggish mainly after reversing off my drive which is very steep so may be similar to your problem.
