Welcome to tezzaworld :wink:

How long do you have the car,, Have you ever changed the fluid in the gear box, I think that's a big thing with the autos it has to be done every so often, other problem could be 101 thing could be the clutch . . Anymore info,, where are you from? ?

Welcome to the site!

If you go to the engine and transmission section Im the board index you will find all you need fluid wise as well as quantities and what people use!

I use 5w 30 Castrol in mine alot of people here seem to use it too!

Have you tried pushing the sport button, are you trying to change gear on the steering wheel? these contact's get mucked up and need clean, so would be steering wheel off job, but should work fine after.

might be your spark plug if it doesnt go over 5.5k rpm.. just press the up button when it hit the red line :wink:
