My car slipped in the wet and hit a curb, giving a pretty hard knock... now for some reason i have no 4th gear (auto gearbox) and it doesnt change down gears automatically... nor does it change up automatically... if i manually shift through the gears its fine, but it wont change out of 3rd when its in DRIVE. also because i have no 4th gear it makes driving down the freeway quite fuel consuming @ 3000rpm... im wandering if this is just a simple case of changing the solenoid or something or if its more severe...

main question: will i have to get a new auto box?

cheers...

i would say so, mines missing 2nd and its not worth repairing it.

i think you should start looking for a reco trans, or better still, time to do the 5speed conversion.

i just wanna sell my car now... so i just want the cheapest way to get a working transmission going again.... ive heard getting a manual conversion is cheaper then replacing the auto? is this true, and if so how much (approx) does a manual conversion cost???

cheers

it might be worth getting a trans place to have a look. it might be an easy fix. if not, there are plenty of second hand boxes around. thats what i did on my old ef. It cost me 700 fitted, no more problems.

yes unfortunately tho i dunno how to install it myself if i picked one up from a wreckers or whatever, if i can get a re conned box for 700 installed then that might be my best bet

The box i had fitted to my EF for $700 was secondhand, from Walliston Wreckers, not recon. i was happy with it though and didn't have any problems.
