Post by: Louisa Lowe on August 05, 2016, 12:17:35 PM
Hi

I have a ford Galaxy titanium automatic and seems to be a bit like its chugging getting into gear. Any advice please? No lights on dash notifying us.

How many miles has it done?
Probably just needs oil and filter change if it's the power shift transmission?
Not cheap to do though think it's around the 2-300 pound mark?

Chances are it is the oil and filter if you have no record of it being done, change intervals are 3 years or 36 thousand miles whichever is sooner.

You could go down the getting it plugged in route to see if any fault codes but if the oil has never been done I would get it changed first and see how it drives then. Apparently it's critical to have the change at recommended intervals with the power shift box.

Hi, is there much of a difference in economy with these Powershift models?
