Re-adjust the front band (It's the adjustment on the passenger side of the box)

Crack the outer lock nut, Screw the centre adjuster in till it is firm, then back it off 2.5 turns, re-tighten the outer locknut.

See how it goes then...

Hi mate

it could be the pressure solenoid in the valve body. sometimes if the solenoid does not supply the right about of hydraulic pressure to band it will case a delayed gear change and case it to thump in to gear when it dose change I think there worth about 450 bucks brand new.

Just a thoght.

cheers.
