Question T - Bar

G,day ppl happy easter and all that jazz.

Have any AU 6cyl owners had a problem with the T-Bar moving whilst going over speed humps or undulations in the road, sometimes even clicking back to 3. I suspect the gearbox mount may have gone soft or something. Any Comments? Thanks.

could also be the T-bar bushes worn or even just the nut underneath loose.

The TBar on dads EL is as solid as anything. Infact all EF falcons/fairmonts onwards i've driven are all very tight in the auto shift detents.

I'd have a look at the shift lever nut to see if it's tight and the linkage under the trans plastic cover.

The only rattly auto's i've experienced is in VT commos.:s3 :s3

ive never heard of the t.bar moving to third poss the rear control arm bushes are worn but highly unlikely (thats what used to happen in EA falcons but not AU maybe the gates are worn out on the t.bar quadrant its hard to say unless a mechanic sees it

Moving T - Bar

Thanks for the input all.

To clarify the problem a little better the shift is not loose or rattleing, it sort of just flexes with the up and down motion of the suspension and, only if I go over large humps fast eg pedestrian crossings at about 30 - 40kmh will it sometimes go back to the three position. Thats why I suspected a broken or oil soaked gearbox mount - Ill check it all out.
