1996 Renault R19 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 120000 miles
I have just bought a lovely '96 R19.
The transmission is playing up and rather than take it to an expensive workshop, I am hoping I might find some answers here.
These are the symptoms:
In drive position there is a small delay until engine revs come up then it grabs suddenly. Then at about 10kph it seems to lose drive. If I gently increase revs it continues to slip. If I give it heaps of throttle it engages again. Throttle position seems to effect performance.
It only mis behaves in 1st and 2nd. 3rd and 4th are fine.
Also, can anyone tell me the correct way to check trans fluid level?
Please help. I have a feeling it is not a major problem but even if it is, it will give me an idea what to do next.
