Help - RVR Sports Gear - Auto Transmission
New Member First Posting -
When in "Drive" the gears sometimes slip into "Neutral" with loss of power and revving of engine. I then put into second gear, wait for gear to re-engage, then move back up to "Drive" and continue. I know this is damaging, and fear it will get worse. I have tried to avoid using the car since - only at weekends for short journeys. I have approached two garages who have told me to either dump the car, or fit a new gearbox (2000 euro !). I don't know what the problem is, but the transmission oil is a little low and very dirty - I want to change this as a first measure, but need some help.
Question: Assuming the problem is not too little oil, what are the likely causes, and what are my best options before going to a garage ? I can upload any photos you might need. What type of transmission oil should I use ?
