Chaps I really would appreciate some help if anyone has some expert knowledge of automatic transmissions. About 12 months my wife's car (T reg Clio) kept on sticking in 3rd gear, I understand this is what the automatic transmission selects/defaults to when unable to select the right gear. We took it to a garage that specialises in automatics and they said the transmission was knackered and fitted a reconditioned one (for Â£1200). Now the same problem is happening again but intermittently, we've taken it to a Renault dealer who cannot find any fault with it but it either defaults to 3rd gear or won't select a geat at all when the shift is placed in "drive". Any thoughts or suggestions would be much appreciated.
