gearbox malfunction
hello everybody i am after some advice suggestions please o.k what happened yesterday nice day checked levels etc went for a drive about an hour everything aok normal temps and pressures no noises clunks whirrs ginds from g box got home unable to park as no reverse in fact the selector would not move into n r or park would go down to 2 and 1 ok so into top of selector and the detent spring is ok so underneath we go disconnect steering /park lock out linkage still no movement under again and disconnect selector to g/box linkage ok the selector is obviously now ok full movement underneath i only have 2 positions on the linkage on side of the g/box i am thinking that the shaft into box has come apart any knowledge /suggestions please feel free thankyou mickmatt p.s i will give you a few hours as i will be down the pub by the time America wakes up sorry 302 with bog standard c4 with 130,000 miles on it
If all the linage is intact and free I would pull the pan and see if the selector inside is still intact. Maybe I missed it but disconnect your shifter linkage and make sure you can still move the selector to each location.
follow on from yesterdays post this am while you were all in bed dropped trans pan and valve body and found that the intermediate brake band had let go just like that no undue noises or other symtoms so rebuild time beckons cheers mickmatt
Good find!
