I've a 53 plate 206 auto.
About a month ago the gearbox failed. I've had a new one fitted and there where the problems have started.
It now won't move out of 2nd until I hit around 30, and won't move out of 3rd until I hit almost 40.
This is on the flat.
Those are most of the time.
I've had it going downhill at 50 and it wouldn't move out of 3rd. And then the next hill, same gradient, it was in 4th at around 35.
A couple times I've applied gas and nothings happened for a few seconds, then there's a 'clunk' from underneath and it's started to move.
The garage has had it back 4 times so far. They agree there's a problem, but can't find it. They've taken it back to the main dealer twice and had the gearbox software reloaded. They've 'scanned' it lots of times but it's not throwing up any error codes.
With the old box I was getting around 35 mpg, I'm getting getting less than 20. I guess because it's always in the wrong gear.
2 days before the box failed it was MOT'd and had full service, so I'm fairly sure the only issues is with the new box.
can anyone suggest what the problem might be? And what to do next??
