    harsh autobox x300

    Hi guys,

    I have an X300 daimler with the sports autobox - The gearbox is quite smooth going up the box but very harsh going back down it. Going from 2 to 1 is usually accompanied by a single thud as the gear engadges.

    ANy ideas what this could be?

    Have you checked the gearbox oil level?

    Sorry to say but it is game over
    You can try a filter and new oil but I think it is dead look for a recon or known good box but I would just get a recon if you’re going to keep it

    Just so I don’t look like a nob check the prop it should only have no more than ¼ in play in it
    They don’t drop in to first they use second and only drop in to first when under hard acceleration or sports mode
    Is it a late car? If so they have problems with ecu programming
