2010 Landrover LR4 HSE intermittently slips out of drive

Resolved Question:

2010 Landrover LR4 HSE intermittently slips out of drive When driving or stopping at light or intersection the engine will just rev when accelerater pressed. The vehicle has to be put in neutral & back in drive in order for the vehicle to move forward. I have been informed that this is a common problem with this particular model year & that a software update is required to rectify? Is this correct?

Hello

there is a software update which can only be carried out at the dealers, its possible its already been carried out

but a quick phone call to your local dealer with your VIN to hand and they can confirm if its been carried out or not

I'd also take a look at the colour of the transmission oil it should be a dark red colour if its black then its needs changing together with its oil filter. Also check its level with the gearbox warm and just after you've moved the selector through all the positions leaving it for a few seconds in each one and then back to park.

You can top up the box through the side fill plug if required and make sure you use the correct oil for your car as the fluids are not all the same. Some manufacturers recommended a change of the type of fluid - Speak to the local dealer and parts dept - they will advise you on the updated fluid to use..

If that’s all OK then check all the electrical connections of the gearbox, remove each connector in turn and spray with contact cleaner. Check that the wiring to the gearbox is in good condition with no chafing or frayed wire
