    Thumbs down Gear Box Tourqe conv. issues

    Our Veccy 2.2 auto has got some issues.

    We bought it 3 years back, not really use it that much, maybe 5000 miles a year.

    However....when you push your foot right past kick down, between the first gear change, there's a HUGE THUMP! and a burts of 500 revs!
    tonight, engine man. light came on, when you put your foot down again, seemed like nothing was happeneing?! like there was NO drive!

    Is this the gear box? or torque converter?

    Thats the best way I can describe it!

    Thanks,
    Ian.

    Could be either , first things first - check the atf fluid level in the box , if it's low it will play up .

    Vehicle : Insignia

    Trim : Sri

    Engine : 140 Ecoflex S/S

    Year : 2013

    Default

    Not quite what you've got but, taken from VX TIS2000, field remedy 1747:

    "Delayed upshift ( approx. 3 - 5 sec.) during upshift from 2 to 3. The engine speed increases by 200-400 RPM"

    Cause: "Transmission-oil pressure varying during upshift from 2 to 3".

    Remedy: "In case of customer complaint reprogram TCM with Software as of TIS 2000 CD 52"

    I know this is 2nd to 3rd, but might be a starting point? HTH
