Does anyone else get a slight hesitation in their auto box from a cold start? Lasts until the gearbox has warmed up - after that, the gearbox shifts sweet....

Wonder if its a common "cold gearbox" prob, or whether its a sign of an impending date with a transmission specialist. :shock: :evil:

What do you mean hesitation? I think i get this in mine, and i was a touch concerned, it feels as if the car wants to go, but it is being held back?

I know i probably just made myself sound like a noob but thats the way it goes!! :P

like it holds gear a bit longer and is not a smooth change,sort of a jolt

Guys- yes yes and yes. All those sound exactly the same as mine. Im glad to hear its a common design flaw, and not a f**k up specific to mine!

Just have to live with it i guess....but im sure theres a reason why it does it? Maybe something to do with cold tranny oil? Experts jump in at any time....

My 'Mont still hesitates when cold even with a 5000km new gearbox, i would'nt say the hesitation was anything to do with the gearbox, but i have heard that maybe a build-up of carbon in the engine (ie: fouled plugs / injectors). Then again i run BP 98ron fuel in it at all times sooo.......might see if i can arrange a dyno de-coke and see if that mekes any difference. :?

Well in all seriousness that's almost what my mate in his VL does. The thing will not go into overdrive at all when cold, so he stalls it up a little bit for about 30 seconds and that fixes it.
Beats having the motor rev like all buggery stuck in 3rd at 100km/h when cold.

So possibly see if stalling it up a little to warm it up helps your problem, I'm sure it won't hurt it.

Ill just smoke it up in the drive....just a little. That'll get the party started!

Im taking it to fraud tomorrow to change the gearbox oil - probably hasnt been changed in 125K, so ill let you know if it makes a difference. Will get em to check the solenoid too....

Faaark. I can already see the dollar signs :cry:
