Your thoughts on what is going are appreciated. Not a real issue but. Only difference is our shop built it from scratch out of brass instead of aluminum. I took it out and off the valve body. It is very important because it keeps your mechatronic valve body under specified pressure therefore it controls how clutches are pressed! I know its a long list of issues, but if you take care of your tranny every 80-100kmls it pays for itself pretty good.
The car is a nightmare to get into gear from neutral, gets slightly better as it warms up. What oil would I need to replace it with? Thanks The damage is probably already done. I wrote it back in May 2006 and so far so good. Keep in mind that when your car was serviced before, parts may have been replaced with different size fasteners used in the replacement. When I take the car to my mechanic, and he clears the message using the diagnostic computer the gear shifts are back to normal for a short while but seem not to be very smooth.

The transmission goes in to safemode. Manual mode works for all gears except 3-4 , sometimes it will shift up ok and others it tries but then as in D reverts back to 3rd. Sitting in the driveway, in Park the gear shifter in the cabin will click occasionally as if trying to shift into gear in Drive with the brake on the car will attempt to shift just about every 2 seconds like a clock.

They can help you figure out which fluid is right for your transmission. I'm not for big oil, but I am looking from an engineering standpoint.
Ratio monitoring code 4th to 5th if forced to cause the fault. Mechanic told the wife it was a glitch. Don't let the perceived viscosity at room temp rule your choice. Got this on mine when cold. The N symbol blinks and the car goes into N.
No one does as much testing for compatibility, wear, and performance. Transmission was replaced at 115k by dealer, but now, it is overheating while in Drive with the brake on red light or traffic. Nothing about changing any hydraulic fluid though. The offered a complete revision of the tranny. Front speaker work pretty good w no distortion, Rear speakers in rear doors and subs sound like they are blown and very weak and crackley with no definition when playing the stereo or cd.
