I have a 2002 Petrol S Type. For some months I have

I have a 2002 Petrol S Type. For some months I have experienced a snatch of jerk when pulling away from stationary position. On two occasions recently I have had a warning message 'Gearbox Fault' appear and the car then only moves in a low gear. I switch off and wait a while and restart and the message clears and the car drives normally. Could this be a Torque converter or gearbox oil level problem? If so can any garage service remedy this or is it a Main dealer issue?

Hi Pete, I have a 2012 Outlander (60,000 miles) with an intermittent fault. Occasionally when the auto gearbox changes from 2nd to 3rd at around 1.4 on the RPM gauge the engine seems to miss with a single judder. This does not happen in any other gear or at any other speed during a 2-3 gear change It does not happen in sports mode. Is this likely to be a gearbox problem? Regards David

Hello Matt. I just purchased a 330d auto e93 (in Europe) at 80k miles. Has full bmw history but the last service. Now, I've read plenty about timing chain failures and swirl flaps, but can't really figure out how much of it applies to me. Also this article I just read about gearbox oil, does it mean I'm due a chAnge now?Some people on forums are saying instead of deleting flaps on this year car is better to change the whole manifold with a new one. I'm so confused! What should I do?

Pete. Purchased a brand new Hyundai Santa Fe S.E.

Hi there Pete. Purchased a brand new Hyundai Santa Fe S.E. automatic-diesel. Consumption figures quoted are urban 36m.p.g. extra urban 47m.p.g. combined 42m.p.g. On running the car for a year it seemed to return an urban consumption of 28m.p.g.which I found disappointing. In November 2017 the vehicle was recalled for an E.C.U. upgrade. With this duly done and with no real explanation as to why it had to be done or what it's purpose was, on driving the vehicle for the following two months the car seems to only return 21m.p.g. on urban cycle. When filling the tank to maximum the trip computer states 380 miles to next fill. On approaching service department received the response that this is because of the manner in which the car is being driven?Hope you can throw some light on this or point me in the right direction of who to approach next regarding this issue.RegardsDonie Brown

I have a Toyota Rav 4 2004, today i shifted it into gear but I couldn't move, the engine just reved, as if the brakes were stuck on. I put it out of gear and the car could be moved manually and would roll. Any ideas as to what the issue might be, clutch wasn't slipping.
