Re: ABS light on

Sorry chaps, bum steer there, I went & read it myself & got code 11 - right front wheel sensor. So a few tests tomorrow - hopefully just a sensor which is simple to sort out.

It has been driven for 10 miles but the light is on as soon as you start so it has to be electrical somewhere.

ABS light on

My Bongo has been stood for most of this year with moving or being started as all. I need to use it this weekend but for various reasons I was only able to start it yesterday & the ABS light is permanently on from the moment it is switched before it is moved. There appears no issues with the wiring ...

Re: Transmission judder

Assuming your oil level is correct, you may have damaged your forward clutch by driving it slipping. It only takes a few yards to total a slipping auto clutch. I take it the judder isn't a LSD judder from the rear axle when cornering?

Re: Recommend rear diff oil from eurocarparts

Firstly Euro Car Parts own brand oild oils (Triple QX) are crap. Buy as good a quality oil as you can afford i.e. a good named brand. Does yours have a limited slip differential (LSD) the oil is different & shouldn't be interchanged. The chart posted in your 1st reply has all the information you need.

Re: Best ATF

From the horses mouth http://www.autogearboxes.co.uk/docs/lifegard.pdf . 'Filled/Sealed for life' is a CAR manufacturer selling point as it reduces service costs. ZF, as linked to above, make transmissions for many of todays cars &, as can be seen, advocate oil changes. BMW & Jaguar - who use ZF gea...

Re: ATF leak

If the oil is coming out fast then definitely don't drive it or you could turn a simple oil leak into a major transmission failure.

Re: Gearbox lack of power drove with hold light on

Needs diagnosing. Does the engine stop or will it just not pull you uphill because it is in default & driving in 3rd gear all the time?

Re: abonarmal 1st to 2nd gear change. 2.0 petrol autobox

Difficult one to diagnose over the ether, judder on pull away (assuming it is the gearbox not prop/driveshaft) is normally the forward clutch starting to slip, which can get worse as 2nd engages. When you say it revs up, is it driving or slipping? We are based in the South East, at Hailsham, just no...

Re: Bongo acting up - help

Update for you all. We got stunews' s Bongo in here & it was, as thought clearly not a trans issue. We checked the pump fuel filter - clean, put fuel in it as it was showing none (guage not working) only for the engine to stop completely 1/2 mile later necessitating a short tow back to work. We got ...
