Have a Car Question? Ask a Mechanic Online.
My mother own a 2007 autogearbox kia picanto. The car (only 40 000 km) does not go forward. I changed oil that looked clear (not burnt) but always the same trouble. Reverse is ok. Local dealer tells she has to get a new gear box. very expensive. Have been told it could be sensor or solenoid. What do you think about it? Thanks.
Thank you for answering Pete. getting a new gear box from here is more expensive than the car's value because we are on a small island in south Pacific so shipping and taxe are very expensive.. As I have mechanic skills I intend to remove and open the box to see inside. Nothing to loose ? Do you know where I could find the gearbox workshop manual? What do you think about this idea?
Hi Pete. Thanks for following up with me. The local dealer doesn't want do to tell me the reference number of this gear box. Do you know a cross reference data website to get this. I intend to order a rebuilt kit. Best regards. Philippe.
