Gear selection issues

When the car is cold and I reverse out the drive way, I then put it in drive and sometimes it takes like 3 secs and what sounds like a few attempts to get its self in gear. Whilst this is happening the gear selection number flashes. Any ideas??

Can start by doing a gearbox Learn but it could be :

solenoid issue

damaged fork.

If clutch learn doesnt do it then a valve body strip and clean and filter change/clean is next step.

Cheers guys. It doesn't do it all the time and only does it when I start it and literally drive straight away. Weird! Does the valve body strip work cost a lot to do?

Its a good 3 to 4 hours work and use about £50 of brake cleaner. Its not really a DIY, just did one today and got another tuesday.

Most likely scenario is worn shift fork shaft, AC Speedtech have seen this several times. They supply and fit a new hardened shaft and a different type of shift fork bearing to prevent it happening in the future.

Barry loves a hardened shaft so he would know if these replacements are any good

I had this on my CBA and ACSpeedtech carried out a rebuild as Barry has said. Since then (nearly 2 years ago) I have not had a single R-1-R selection failure.

I thought (usual health warnings about the accuracy of my thoughts), once this starts to happen it can only get worse over time and as Barry said can lead to a shift fork breakage.

For future reference - it will be slow to change when battery voltage is low also.

Heres a pic of the inside of the pickup filter in a functioning non failed built trans from yesterday, people think you can just spray them with brake cleaner and they are like new, not so, they can be split and cleaned 2 or 3 times then there will be swarf in the primary filter and the valve body that has another 7 small filters and the solenoids that get clogged.

Could be worse, could look like this

That is exactly what mine did. It was normally when cold, and also the same thing when going into 1st. Then last years it went flash-flash-flash and went into second with "trans fault" on the display. The selector fork has sheared it's end off.

Is Dimitri anything to do with Extreme Tuners from Athens?

So you split the valve body and removed the mini filters and all the O rings and seals and ball bearings and took the pistons out and solenoids off? If so thats good work but not IMO DIY for the average Joe, if you lose one seal you cant get them and Ill bet hardly any DIY mechanics have all the tools needed to do the job. How did you hold the pistons in the correct position to go over shift forks? Nice going though.
