Hello and Welcome to justanswer...

What mileage is on the car ?

When you say under "already tried" - "oil "... what exactly has been done?

Too - what is the condition of the transmission fluid - what colour is it - and does it smell burned at all ?

Hello again - thank you for your reply..

The fluid seems ok then - you can change it - and clean the filter inside the transmission though - clogging filter can cause this so it would be a good move...and then see how it goes..

If the car / transmission is generally slow on the change down - then it could be an internal issue ...with the valve body etc ... or, if its that it won't change up quickly , then the kick down arrangement can be faulty..

Really - depending on your experience , its best for me to advise you to at least get a repair manual on this to help you - so that you can refer back to it as you go and for settings - adjustments etc...

If you are happy doing the work , then the manual will be invaluable..

If not- then you are best taking it to a local Auto Transmission place - even garages, dealers etc will send them to these people because they are fully au fait with them - have the equipment for testing etc etc... and the job is done a lot quicker and cheaper on the whole...

So those are the best options as above so as to save you time and money on this one.. but by all means ask me if you need anything more..


Kind Rgds, MIKE
