Hi one and all,just joined the owners forum,seems a great idea.Ive recently bought a 1.6 auto. tekna 57 reg. 28000 miles. The auto box has a very noticable lurch when in drive between 1st. & 2nd. gear,not so much if able to give more revs when pulling away,also there isn't any "kickdown" only if I use the O/D button,it's in a auto gearbox specialist's today for diagnosis and hopefully repair,anyone have any similar problem or any thoughts on what might be wrong,Cheers.

usually the boxes are strong, weak point is the torque convertor, a fluid flush works wonder in older cars if its just used for short runs the fluid can get burnt esp sitting in traffic at a stand still with it in drive, foot on the brake

gear lever should be placed in to neutral if stationary for more than 20 seconds, this prevents heat build up in the fluid and torque converter (see owner manual) previous auto boxes I have used did this for themselves, vauxhall units went into neutral at 10 secs and re engaged when throttle applied.

With a massive clang if you drive two footed like me, I never could adapt to the vectra
Mine actually re-engaged when you released the brake. It managed to survive me for 30,000 miles though.

I do tend to knock the note out of gear if I know the lights will be a couple of minutes. More out of a desperate attempt to save fuel than mechanical sympathy though

yup it wasn't the smoothest re take up, tried all sorts to beat it but nearly always the jolt as the fluid was allowed back into the torque converter.
