Matt. My gearbox keeps dropping down and sticking in first

Customer Question

Hi matt. My gearbox keeps dropping down and sticking in first gear.it started 2 weeks ago. Id done 100 miles in the motorway and it just lost top gear.I kept it goin on the hard shoulder for 10 miles and it kicked back up.
It seems to happen at 70 mph plus. If i keep it at 55 it rarely happens but it is getting more regular.its a 94 2.8 auto.the speedo sender has not worked for 12 mths
