cool EA 4spd auto problems?

Okay my EA 4spd auto starts to upshift hard when the car has been driven for about 1/2 an hour. The gear changes are silky clean for about the first 20minutes or so and gradually get rougher. I have noticed if i drive like grandma it does shift alright. Could i need new tranny oil or could it be my S5 solenoid, the car has just hit 200000km on the original gearbox.
I have checked the fluid level and it is ok, anyone had similar problems?

Cheers jjj

I'd get the solenoid checked, as its that which controlls the shifting pressure.

Re: EA 4spd auto problems?

How long since the fluid was changed?. If it is black and stinks it is best to change the lot out, sooner rather than later.

cheers

Re: EA 4spd auto problems?

The fluid hasn't been changed for about 2years? I have done about 40000km. I might get a gasket and some tranny oil, how much oil would i need?

It will take about 4L. Make sure you use the correct oil such as Castrol TQ95

Re: EA 4spd auto problems?

you need to bleed it fully as the gearbox sump only hols half a liter of oil :) most of it is in the torque converter and there is a trick getting that out :)
