Ok the gearbox on your vehicle is a complex auto boxThe service interval on the powershift MPS6 (dct450) gearbox is 3 years or 37,500 miles (whichever comes first )This is imperative to correct operation of the system due to the wet clutch setup the oil becomes contaminated with fibres etcBefore going any further the oil and filter must be changed on the powershift gearboxIf the fault persists then it’s commonly caused by an internal mechatronic unit this is the TCM(Transmission Control Module)
and controls the selector fork sensors /mangents etc This can be changed independently if the gearbox The first thing that must be done is to have the fault code read out of the TCM as this is imperative to correctly diagnosing the issue As if you’ve been having previous concerns prior to gearbox service then the issue is deeper than an oil level /condition issueKindest regards ***** *****Brian
