Default Cefiro A32 Gearbox Problem - Slow Engage

Hi all...

My Cefiro A32 30GV lately having some gearbox issues. Previously, when push the stick to D, gear will engage immediately but lately it wont. Sometimes it'll take 2~3 seconds to engage (move) and during engage, there's a loud "kong" sound from gearbox/engine.

I have learnt that whenever the engine is cold, the problem will be there. So, normally i push to 2, after engaged gear and moving for say 10m or so, then only switch back to D.

So.. sifus, does this mean that the gearbox is time for an overhaul? or is it some other minor problems or sensors that causing these problem?

Anyone done overhaul gearbox b4? How much is the cost? Will it be better if just get a used gearbox from the junk yard?

Opnions and feedback appreciated!!

I face the same before but the reason is due to the automatic transmission fluid is not sufficient. Check if the level is correct?

hi polaris,
How much did u spend for the replacement of gearbox? Is it just "plug and play"?

Hi funguy,
Since the car only in my hand recently (company car), therefore i dont know the prev history. But i do noticed gear oil leakage, which i solved last week... So, i suspect the gear oil actually ran dry b4, and caused this permanent damage.

Hi Seizai,
Hav not tried the ecu reader. Possible to get anything from there?

Bump: Another problem recently...
The idling is not stable, ie the engine supposed to be smooth and steady during idling, but sometimes it'll "shiver" and shatter slightly, causing some minor vibration onto the body. Happened only recently. Anything to do with the sensors or perhaps the spark plugs?

Thanx!

most important its to use original nissan Matic-D auto oil, any other normal oils will shorten the lifespan if your g.box. I have not use toyota or honda auto oils, but its best to stick with nissan oils.

Also, check your engine and g.box mount.

My friend drove his fatty for 400kkm, auto oil always use original and change very 20kkm, no problem.

Haiyah its a classic vq problem , heard this problem b4 a hundred times on this site, so far no accurate solution yet:- try to check the im gaskets, throttle position sensor, maf , air filter rubber hose, ignition coil plugs,injectors, etc . Dont get too hasty on changing those items . Make sure b4 changing.

As for the AT, i suggest u change to a secondhand unit(kedai potong). Repairing ur at will not last long. And don't touch recond units.

If u r getting 'potong unit' try to get thye same cc to avoid gremlins later.

about 4L when only change oil, about 5L when change the auto filter, and 8L when you take out the g.box and empty the torque converter.
