Rough gear change at low speed auto BA

Recommended Posts

Just picked up this 2003 xr6t 4 speed auto for a bargain - great car so far other than this jolt it has with the gearbox when changing from first to second at low speed (without acceleration)

If I give it a bit of gas it shifts perfectly fine, if I’m using the triptronic it shifts perfectly fine.

Seems as if first gear holds for too long then all of a sudden bangs into second gear (revs are off?)


Any help regarding this issue would be much appreciated!

pretty standard for an old 4sp... you can get it tuned out or it might be something mechanical like the centre bearing or something like that causing a thud.

Thanks for the replies guys.

It’s done 189,000 he’d used it as a daily commuter for the passed 7 years doing around 80km a day guessing a lot of that would have been bumper to bumper traffic which probably has something to do with the thud.

Picked it up for $2000, in NZ it was stuck on limp mode & supposedly had a stuffed turbo which turned out to be loose bolts.
