147 selespeed gear problems
Hi guys, id first like to say thanks to everyone for making this a great place with a wealth of information. With that sickening display out the way.....
I have a '03 147 selespeed with gear problems not unlike most others on here. I will be driving along fine and try to change from 2nd to third 3rd, it will think about it for a while then end up in 5th gear. Most of the time I can then change down to 3rd or 4th but the initial change from 2nd takes ages and doesnt feel safe.
Occasionally when this happens it will suddenly drop into neutral (only happened a handful of times but this can be scary on a national speed limit road) and not change up or down.
I have topped up the transmission fluid (dexron3 as stated in the manual) and when I put it into the reservoir (which was empty) the fluid turned milky pink, bubbles not curdling, so I am unsure if this is how it should be or if it is changing the compressability or fluidity of it.
Also I have checked the pump noise when I open the door and it sounds fine, the relays dont have any soot on the contacts (all very clean and look good). The battery I havent had tested but the green inidcator light is on so it 'seems' to be ok.
Has anyone else had this problem? It is always changing up from 2nd it has a problem with. Thanks in advance for any help given.
