Irn Bru!! ...yumyum! Lick

Michelle (from Bognor) had never seen the stuff that til she moved up here, ..now she's thinking of adding the logo to her growing collection of tattoos (grim reapers, flags, Luger pistol, flowers, sheep, Corvette cross flags etc).. Very Happy

I'll be doing the ATF later once all the braking gear and dampers etc are installed and working..

Re: Auto transmission struggles to engage


I had the car out today,the brakes/handbrake aren't binding and it drives fine in reverse but really struggles in forward gears, there's a lot of slip,it's extremely reluctant to pull away,levels are fine but I did read somewhere of another fill Bolt,it still seems more logical that it's pressure as it was low on fluid,maybe the pressure regulator though?
The torque converter has been mentioned elsewhere but wouldn't that affect reverse too?
I'm going to do a filter replacement and get a look at whats in the pan/filter and check whatever while there so fingers crossed
I'm wheelchair bound too which makes things a big more problematic and frustrating so thanks for the help Smile
