Range Rover Gearbox Fault Repair

A common issue with earlier Range Rover models is the loss of drive which returns after turning the vehicle off for ten minutes. The loss of drive is a symptom of a problem with the Range Rover automatic transmission. For the Range Rover five speed GM gearbox, the loss of drive is commonly caused by a failure of the clutch lining inside the torque converter. In turn, this causes the faulty plate to grind against the bottom of the torque converter, creating metallic debris within the transmission unit. The small metal particles stick to both the valve body and the solenoids and this then blocks the valve body and solenoids.

To repair a Range Rover gearbox contaminated by debris after a clutch lining failure, it is necessary to overhaul the Range Rover gearbox. After an automatic gearbox overhaul, to prevent further contamination and damage, it is very important that all debris is flushed out from the cooler lines. The addition of new cooler fluid can sometimes be necessary to the automatic transmission. To prevent a recurrence of the gearbox problem which resulted in a loss of drive in the Range Rover,  the linings inside the torque converter are upgraded by the Stephens Engineering team. Upgrading the linings inside the torque converters eliminates this failure for the Range Rover.
