Gearbox Problem with EF Falcon
My father is currently having dramas with his EF Falcon. It is an automatic, and for some reason the gears seem to be slipping.
It is much worse in the cold mornings. I was in the vehicle the other morning and when the car was changing gears, the engine was revving however the car was hardly going anywhere. Just last week a mechanic had a look and checked the transmission fluid level which was just on the "add' mark. He did a service, and the fluid replaced and filled up. The mechanic thought this was the answer to the problem.
Yet the problem is still there. Also the car is reluctant to switch from 3rd to 4th at all times now, with the car doing 2000rpm at 60km/hr on flat road. This is while it is in economy mode. When we switch to power it then will change and the rpm will drop.
Its going back to the mechanic this week. Has anyone come across this type of problem before? Any suggestions?
