Hey guys,
Wondering if anyone can give some advise on the 5 Spd auto for sv6.
Was driving home the other day in quite warm weather and all of a sudden the car has lost all gears. Basically the car had gone into neutral.
When I turn the ignition off and on again and put the car into drive I can drive about 100m before the same issue happens again. Can drive about 1 km when car is cold.
Plugged in diagnostic tester and no codes recorded. Car has perfect power though when it manages to drive which makes me think electrical. Any ideas on what could be causing this to happen before I get my hands dirty. Faulty TCM? Believe this is located in the trans itself if I've researched correctly.

How many kilometres has your vehicle travelled in total ?

Have you ever had the transmission serviced ?

Suggest you consider taking the car to a reputable Auto Transmission Specialist for (an ethical/honest) analysis. I have used DRW Automatics at Lonsdale several times. They really seem to know their stuff. Prices reasonable. https://www.google.com.au/search?do...tbm=lcl&rldimm=15898596334925967694&gws_rd=cr Good luck.

Thanks for your reply. It's done 225,000. I've only had the car about 6 months so don't know service history on trans. I myself haven't had it serviced yet.
