Transmission problem - service issue?

Recommended Posts

I have a 2013 Galaxy. I bought it from a Ford dealer in 2014 and have had it serviced every year. I drive about 10000 miles  a year. This week a warning message appeared saying ‘limited transmission function’. The local garage took a look and tell me the transmission fluid is thick and black, the solenoids have collapsed and the repair work will cost between £2.5k and £5k. I can’t help thinking that the transmission fluid should have been checked during each annual service and am interested to hear what other owners experience is. Thank you

Definitely these have a filter too try changing oil could resolve issue but not a guarantee

Hey,

No, to rebuild the entire gearbox with new clutch pack (power shift) and new solenoids with new macatronic is £1,900 including labour and V.A.T. As I had this recently done on my car. Any stories about 2.5-5k is a SCAM and needs to be avoided at all costs. I paid the HIGHER price to have it properly done. Anything more and they are ripping you off.

There are only two specialists who deal with the powershift in London that I know of. One is called ALL GEARS in Rainham, and the other is London Automatics in Dagenham, which is where I had mine sorted.

Hope this helps.
