Yikes... 4 spd auto problems...
Hey guyz, my old 4spd is developing a problem it seems... ITs only happened twice now and the first time i ignored it but it happened again tonight. I was driving along happily doing about 80kph when all of a sudden my auto downshifted to 3rd...
I thought i was hit the T-bar or something but it was still in the D position... so i flicked it down too 2nd and then back up too drive but she wouldnt kick backinto 4th! So i slowed at the next set of lights and the damn thing wouldnt go into 1st! It was just running 2nd and 3rd! So i stopped at the fuel station and turned off the ignition.... refulled and restarted.... it began operation normally again! Anyone know what could have caused this???
My box has always performed crappy (it needs a S5 replacement)... like it will upshift when u take yer foot off the gas after accelerating and then would nearly stall itself.. but it never not shifted into a gear.. its got me worried now coz i dont have the cash to get the box sorted out atm. Anyone have any idea's??
