EA Gearbox Troubles
I have a 91 EA Falcon with the 4 speed auto slusher. Admittedly it hasn't enjoyed a well serviced history. Two weeks ago as part of a normal engine service the garage added some oil to the transmission saying that it was low. Two weeks have passed without any issues, but today it started playing up. In economy mode it held first gear much longer than normal then banged into the next gear (a real clunk) it seemed to go from 1st to 3rd. It wouldn't kick down or change up into top gear. It will change back into 1st when the car comes to a stop. Changing the gears manually when I went back into 2nd it seemed to go into neutral, revving without any forward push. Change back into 3rd and it carried on but it still wouldn't change into top gear.
I checked the oil level and it appeared to be over full, but I haven't checked it since it has cooled down a bit. There appeared to be bubbles in the oil on the dipstick???? that one's a mistery.
Anyone had similar problems. I am hoping that the gearbox will live on and its just an electrical or solenoid fault.
Any help would be appreciated.
