Hey,
I just bought an eb with 124xxxkms on it, it hadnt been started in 3 years..I've changed oil and filter, coolant and sparkplugs.. And the auto is only shifting properly when warm, now I was wondering would I need to do a full flush of the oil.. (dont know how), or just change oil in the box itself..(found a writeup, seems easy enough) Any help would be much appreciated.

Ahh,
So much fun.. I changed the oil in the gearbox and that wasn't the problem, it seems to be in limp home mode (stuck in 3rd) how do I fix this?
Thanks for any help

So i reset the ecu as per instructions on here and now the power light on dash is flickering and it seems to be making the cars idle fluctuate.. apparently this is the trans overheating, but i flushed the coolant (even tho it seems to need topping up every day) and changed the trans oil, What will fix my problems now lol

Sorry to be a pain
