Angry Re: Dualogic Gearbox

I had my car parked for just 2 days an noticed the judder does start when the car is stationed for a few days, I also got into a major traffic jam where cars were moving bumper to bumper and every time i moved forward on the first the whole car just shrudders and moves forward, it has to be something wrong with the magnetic clutch, I am putting the car into the shop next Tuesday as the dealer seems quite confident he can fix this issue, I will give them just one chance and should the problem come up again, I have told them that I need a brand new dualogic gear box which they have agreed to provide. lets see how it goes, by the way my air bag failure warning light also decided top come on this evening, so need to have that checked as well

You're wasting your time mate - I'm willing to bet with my life they will not be able to fix it.

Unhappy Re: Dualogic Gearbox

I believe you but let's see what happens, if they can't fix it then they better get ready to import a new gear box, I think all this started when they did a software upgrade at 1000km, I think the first generation software was good but the gear change was extremely heave and slowed the car down when gears were changing but this was ok after the update but I guess it triggered off the judder, tried to get the remove the software but they claimed it is not possible

It's good to hear that this problem still hasn't been resolved!!!

I've just had to call Fiat again, as now the juddering is becoming dangerous. Not pulling away quick enough at roundabouts etc. It is also remaining when the car has warmed up!! So what is the problem??????????? It's had a new clutch and fly-wheel. (all under warranty)

Also, a new problem, that when its ticking over (no revs) it sounds like there are a load of nuts and bolts in the engine (probably there are!) Once it revs they go, then come back when its ticking over again!!!???

So, what's next??

Re: Dualogic Gearbox

Ok, a long story short....

The local dealer closed down due to non-payment of bills etc. Looked at the car, but couldn't help.....

Was driving down the M2 motorway in Kent, coming off on to the slip road. The car started majorly started juddering then stallled. Tried staring it and the gears were just grinding away, then stalled again.

The AA turned up and towed me to another dealer - looks like the gearbox has gone. Tried putting it into reverse and I thought the engine was going to jump out the car!!

They are going to look at it Monday- so what are they going to say this time?

Fiat need to sort this out - this is dangerous!!
