Title: 2003 FORD GALAXY 2.3 PETROL AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION ENGAGE ONLY ON 1 AND REVERSE
Post by: elikoy77 on July 25, 2019, 01:41:30 PM
While driving, my 2003 FORD GALAXY 2.3 PETROL AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION suddenly slip and the stops moving on the drive D so I discover that my car only moves when I shift to 1 and reverse. I have changed my gearbox twice but I still experienced the same symptom. I also try changing the Transmission control module but my car still behaves the same way and no-fault or trouble codes comes up when I scan with VCDS.
Please anybody with an idea of what is going on with my car should kindly assist.

Very puzzling. U have changed the gearbox, u say? Could this be a computer issue.

I'd wonder if the op means they have changed the gearbox oil twice rather than the gearbox itself?

Typically the boxes only suffer either from degraded/insufficient oil, or gummy solenoids - the n92 one being the usual suspect mentioned. Worth a look in the faq section for that, but would be helpful for the original poster to confirm if they meant the gearbox or the oil?
