Transmission Probs

Hey all, i think theres something wronge with my transmission in my EL! gear changes seem to be rough and sometimes when accelerating eg. 3rd to 2nd gear there seems to be a slight vibration! Would a routine service correct this problem or do you guys believe the transmission is nackard and requires an overhaul? It's a four speed auto.

thanks

Get a service ASAP!

I thought the 4spd auto in my ED had died. My wife drives it mostly and had described similar symptoms to yours, before I had arranged anything reverse gear totally dissappeared and it was spraying auto transmission fluid onto the road whenever reverese was selected.:oo1:

:crazy1: Fearing the worst I managed to get it to an auto trans specialist (an interesting drive in itself as much trans fluid had been lost but that's another story) who diagnosed a blown gasket in the rear thingymagig. That was replaced, a full service performed and I picked it up on the same day, charged only around $250 and the car has never gone better:s5

yeah the cars not mine its my parents, but i heard them talk about the tranmission having a broken gastget as well and oil was spraying everywhere, but the weird thing is i looked everywhere around the transmission, egine bay etc, but i cant find a drop of oil anywhere, our driveway is totally clean no oil drops anywhere! Hopefully it only cost my parents 250 bucks cause the transmission on my car went not long ago cost me 2.5k!

Welcome to FF mate.

I see you are in Melbourne!, there is a place in City Road, South Melbourne that I recommend everyone to goto, I have used them for years and they have saved me thousands in repair costs as they quote and repair fair...

Ie if its something simple, they will fix it without pulling the wool over your eyes!

Cannot remember the name at the moment but you should find them in the yellow pages!

good luck
