Hey guys, a couple of nights ago i was driving and had been for about an hour or so, before I felt something wrong with the trans. It slipping out of gear into neutral, until i pulled over turned the car off and then restarted it.

It eventually got worse until the point that it wouldn't drive at all. I took it to work, dumped the fluid (pretty brown) and chucked some new fluid and a filter in, all seemed well it drove fine for about a total 20 minutes worth of driving until the same thing happened again.

If anyone has any tips on what i can do to fix it or find the fault i would be much thankful as i have no f**k idea what to do when it comes to a transmission.

Car is series II EF XR8

Jarred.

thanks again.
