2000 Vauxhall Vectra 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 100000 miles
car I just bought, it goes really well through all gears when cold and after it heats up after say 20 miles or so the computer comes up with " automatic gearbox" and seems to switch the automatic shift system off. I then select gears manually, if I stop and switch ignition off and on again it will travel fine through the gears in automatic mode but resorts back to me making manual selection within a minute or so.
I have had a diagnostic test done and they said it wasn't repairable the codes that come up were PO715 input turbine speed sensor fault----next one was PO773 shift solenoid E Electrical.
I have changed the transmission fluid but no difference, old fluid had very, very slight tinge of yellow at bottom of basin I used, no metal shavings were to be found in old oil.
Do you think its a possible repair job without removing transmission your help advice would be much appreciated.
