SEMI AUTOMATIC gearbox ISSUE

I have just purchased this privately and have a grinding/dragging type noise when it goes from 2nd to 3rd gear around 27-35mph I tried it in both manual and automatic and the same happens but not all the time? At first I thought something was loose or dragging but because of the consistency at this speed I'm terrified it's a major gearbox issue? Drives perfect in all other gears and speeds? advice please?

Re: SEMI AUTOMATIC gearbox ISSUE

If the noise happens at the gear shift point it could be the synchromesh. The gearbox and clutch are basically the same as a manual system but uses servos to move the gears and clutch.


You will need to consult a Duologic/Selespeed specialist.

To be fair I have no idea which vehicle he is asking about. The old type slush boxes with epicyclic gears simply refused to shift or slipped in the affected gear.
