Hello! I'm new to forums so please excuse if this is posted in the wrong place.
I am in need of urgent help guys and gals, i brought an 05 plate astra estate club 1.8 auto about 6 months ago and it seems like i got a little bit of a problem.
It first started to loose water, I thought a good service will do the trick. So i took it to my mechanic and he told me the parts to get. He also asked me to get gearbox oil, because apparently it had gone all white(ish) and thats really bad. So he chaned that also. My mechanic couldn't determine where the water was going as there were no leaks under the car.
Then after a few weeks, it now goes up to 4th gear and doesnt go back down, it stays in 4th, so moving off at the traffic lights is a bit of an issue.
There is also a light of a spanner and car in the dash board, in manual it says that there may be something wrong with the engine or transmission electrical system.
My mechanic then told me that i may need a new gearbox, and also a new radiator as the radiator was leaking water into the engine or transmission??
So he changed the radiotor and said that may fix the issue. but it hasnt.
Someone help! Has anyone had a similar issue?
