Gear box problem 1998
|Date:||July 8, 2011, 2:24 pm||
|Location:||Malaysia, Kuala Lumpur|
|Vehicle:||Mazda FORD Telstar|
|Problems:||The Ford Telstar 1998 has an extra button at the side of the Gearbox handle which is called the ' Hold ' button. It is actually an overdrive button for overtaking onve the button is depressed.|
The problem I am having is that while driving ( especially when I start my car in the morning when engine is cold )especially along the highway, the car suddenly goes to overdrive mode without me engaging the 'Overdrive button '
and the car goes into overdrive and the 'overdrive ' light is up in my display.
It will remain in overdrive for about 5 minutes and when I brake my car to a complete stop or switch off my engine after that , the 'overdrive ' goes of and the car is back to normal and remains normal. But it starts again if the engine is cold and for 5 minutes before it goes back to normal after breaking or switching off the engine.
Please advise as I have had the car scanned for problems & results show nothing is wrong and I also had a gear oil change.
