On my way back from work yesterday,

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the make/model/year of your car?

2006 Holden astra

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Astra yourself? What have you tried so far?

I just but the vehicle two days ago

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

When I changed from d1 to d4 there was no acceleration when I rev it

Mechanic's Assistant: How old is the transmission? Have you checked the fuel filters?

No I've not checked anything yet

Hello there,

What engine in your Astra please?

1.8 petrol, or 1.9 diesel?

Can you check the transmission fluid level please?

What do mean by no acceleration, is the transmission slipping?
