I have recently had a gear box fitted, and now every now and again is crunches in reverse and get hard to change gear. it was playing up last week then at the weekend we drove over two hundred miles with no problem and then this week it has started again. any one got any ideas please.

    When you had the gearbox changed did you replace the oil in the new gearbox if you didnt then id start by replacing the gearbox oil and see if that helps

    Id try a gearbox flusher to clear out all the old sludge that would of been left in the gearbox when they drained it and then re topup with new oil and see if that helps
