I'm sorry to say the JATCO automatic transmissons in these aren't the best units and are difficult to repair

usually replacement is the best option/ most cost effective as a repair requires a full strip down to clean the unit out properly at a cost of £1500

however 1st thing to check is the automatic gearbox connector which is located just under the airbox can come loose, and chaff all the wires by rubbing on the underside of the airbox so shorting them and causing it not to shift up.


as for someone to do the work try
