Hi I have a automatic zafari when moving from 2nd to 3rd it over revs

Hello! My name is Gary.
Welcome to JustAnswer.
I'm reviewing your question now, and will post back with a reply shortly.

Hello there,

Your car is a Vauxhall Zafira?

Is the auto holding onto 2nd too long, or slipping when doing a 2-3 shift?


Customer: replied 5 months ago.
Holding with extra revs

What year is yours?

Does the engine light come on?

How many miles now?


Customer: replied 5 months ago.
yellow light with spanner over a car .03 reg 11000

Ok, so now we need to get a scan of the engine and transmission for codes set.

Do you have a Vauxhall dealer nearby?

Small shops don't have the resources for diagnosis.


Customer: replied 5 months ago.
12 miles away

Ok, that will be your best option.

The transmission can do abnormal shifting for many reasons, including lower than expected torque from the engine.

110000 is above average mileage for this age, still should have some good life in it.

So code diagnosis is the next step.

Hope this helps.

I wish you well.
