The Land Rover Discover and Ranger Rover Sport are well known for automatic gearbox problems starting from around 80,000 miles, some of the common faults are shuddering at approx 2000rpm, slow gear engagement and gear changes when cold, torque converter lock up, to name just a few, and the cost that some customers are being quoted runs into thousands of pounds, so people are selling their vehicles as they are being put off by the cost of repairs
Over the past few years we at Mercury Car Center have had great success with curing many of these faults at a fraction of the costs by carrying out a gearbox mega flush service
So what is involved with this mega flush service, we connect our machine into the transmission system and start the flushing process by adding a flushing agent into the transmission system and run for 20 minutes while this is happening we will select all the gears and make sure the transmission gets to normal running temperature, then we start the fluid exchange process (this is a bit like carrying out a blood transfusion on you transmission system) unlike many other garages which just drain the gearbox and leaves approx. 50% of the old oil in the system.
We exchange 100% of oil in the whole transmission system Gearbox,torque converter,oil cooler and hoses. We then add a conditioner to fluid ,clear any fault codes that might be in the system,job done giving your Land Rover many more miles of smooth gear changes.
