Re: Troubles getting out of second gear
The colour of the oil is fine. The gearbox itself is about 10000k old.
I'll go over the vacuum lines again, but I'm thinking brenx might be right with the valve body issue.
When it sort of works the shifts are firm but sometimes if I give it a bit it drives like it has a slippy clutch, which I so hope doesn't mean a new gearbox.
The shifter is an original and works very well, not sloppy at all. I've been thinking that just taking it to a tranmission specialist and getting them to flush out all the oil in the hope that anything bloking a passage gets cleaned out.
Having not had to pay for anything like this for sometime, am I up for a bit?
I was thinking that if the internals are ok, to put a shift kit though it.
