check transmission fluid level , if its full is the fluid good/clean ?,can be a bit of a process on 'sealed for life transmission' but is do-able,cant check it yourself,?then take it to a transmission specialist,also check gearbox & engine mountings,also check tailshaft couplings/doughnuts condition,again if unable to do this yourself take it to someone who can....the 'i had a look in the driveway 'will not cut it ,needs to a)be up on a hoist & b)needs someone who knows what to look at/for looking at it.
