    Default 150 cdti auto engine and gearbox software

    I have only had the car a couple of weeks , when i bought it I never noticed the jerk when its put into drive (especcially after reverse) or the jerk when it changes down from 5 to 4, nothing seriuos but annoying,

    with this forums help I changes the gearbox oil which wasn't burnt or smelly but no real difference, so after further reading on this forum I went to STA auto gearbox's in Aylesbury yesterday who gave it a test drive where it performed near enough faultlessly, he suggested gearbox is ouk but I could do with checking car has the latest software for the gearbox and ecu as this may sort it out.

    does anyone know any independants who could do this as I am not keen on going to a vx dealer? or has anyone had this done?

    I am in St Albans herts and don't mind travelling

    I own a 1.9 CDTI Sri estate six speed auto. My gearbox has a problem only when warmed up after 30 miles or so. It either jumps into neutral or bangs into gear on the 3rd to 4th change only.
    I have changed the rad/oil cooler and oil this helped for a short while. I then had oil changed again this again helped for a short while but I still have the problem does anyone know if this si the mechanics of the gearbox or the ECU or electronic switching that is causing the problem.
    I am able to drive it in the manual shift mode if I change up to fourthas quick and smooth as possible.
    If the gearbox needs a rebuild does anyone know of a good (reasonably priced) mechanc who can do this. Or is anyone in the know to a good second hand gearbox.

    the Guy at STA said that there are a lot of vauxhall vectras running around that would benefit from software upgrades (downloaded from vauxhall) that clear problems as vauxhall have learnt to clear the problems by changing the parameters in the controlling ecu's so that seems to be the first port of call before any rebuilds or gearbox work.
