Unless you have a fair amount of automotive skill, I would recommend that you leave that task to an experienced set of hands. An 01 540 is not a good car to learn on, there are many factors involved. Specialized tools and equipment are required and are cost prohibitive to do this job just once. The shifting issue could possibly be a software update, without a printout of software levels and possible stored faults, I cant tell from cyberspace.
