    Default Gear Selection Problems on Series II Disco Diesel Auto

    Can anybody help. My 11 year old disco has developed a problem with the Auto gearbox. When first started it wont change up gear unless I really rev the engine. When it does change up it seems to swap gear between 2nd and 3rd. When I finaly get it into 4th gear the problem seems to clear apart from the occasional hic-cup.
    I am currently living in Spain and have been quoted 2300 euro for a replacement box. has anyone any idea of what may be the cause and is it repairable. All replys appreciated

    Check the oil level.

    Otherwise it maybe an exchange box . I paid around 1300 last year for one fully fitted...this was after the original dumping its oil on the M1 and oveheating so much it melted many of the plastic valves together!!!

    Hi new member, Tip from another new member-A lot of expert guys on this forum, but pretty unforgiving to newbies.

    Thanks for the reply. The first thing I checked was the oil level - It's spot on and the oil looks clean.

    Thanks for the advice. My car is still at the dealer. When I get it back I will post the full spec.

    Could someone cast light on this one? On my D2 auto I would not be able to check level and confirm clean fluid. No dipstick.
