Ran out of transmission fluid
My car is a 2006 156 JTS Selespeed.
This Morning i drove to get new oils etc knowing i likely had none due to the leak i found.
It took me 2.5 hours to get home (15Klms)
During gear change it will go into Neutral. Cant get it back into gear. I have to pull over, turn the car off, wait 10 mins and get going again. If i try to restart straight away i hear the click like it has engaged but it beeps at me and stays in Neutral.
Seems the gears want me to let them cool.
Now i know part of the problem is no oil as i got home and filled it up. I couldnt drain it as i didnt have the correct hex tool but was able to put 2L in before it started spilling out. So i know it had no oil at all.
So i take it for a test drive. Immediately same problem. Pulled over a few times and it got HEAPS better. Very smooth gear changes.
Downshifting is not a problem. Catches everygear everytime.
After 10 minutes of great driving it went back to before. Jumping out of gear when changing.
Now my question is not what is wrong. I have ordered the cable and will be here in 2 days so need to wait to hook it up to check Clutch Rod, accumulator, pump etc.
My question is how long will it take for the new oil to get into all the places it needs to?
Thanks very much for any help.
