Today i was driving down the freeway and i was doing 100 kph then all of the sudden the gearbox started jerking violently. :shock: it was like its going from neutral to drive every time i push the accelerator the engine would rev and then it would kick into gear and out again then i stopped and put it in park and then drive took off and it was fine again? this has happened twice. on the way to where is was going and on the way back it happened i was doing 80 kph! WTF :shock:
And also when i brake coming up to a set of lights it wants to stall and then the revs pick up agian and is normal and the gearbox is still smooth when it changes but needs half a litre of oil.

By the way its 1994 fairmont ghia EF
Thanks for any help, sorry about the wall of writing

maybe that might have something to do with it.

if you do a search you'll find that lack of fluid is the most common cause for an auto losing drive.
does it still have a trans dipstick?
make sure you check fluid level on flat ground with engine running.

most likely the auto is slipping mate or even a small chance a solenoid is on its way.
dont just top it up with fluid, you might as well empty the old oil and replace the filter

hopefully your auto has a dipstick. late EF's didn't.
put fluid in it. each time it's running dry it is dramatically shortening the life of the auto

now to check the level accurately put it on level ground. have it running. run it through the gears (D,R,D,R) then put it in park. pull out dipstick. wipe. dip in, and check. top up accordingly

Alrighty i know im digging this thread back up but why start a new one? :lol:

I fixed the gearbox problem it wasn't that it needed a service or the gear selecter position switch or the gearbox was broken it was the stupidest thing ever seen! :x

My oil pressure sender was leaking and it leaked all over the plugs on the side of the gear box and gave the computer a wrong reading! thats what was causing the gearbox to have a hissy fit! :P
