Hello - Newbie here - I have done searches in forums, and looked for YouTube videos - closest answer I can find involves adjusting the shift cable, I hope that is it -
My car is a 2013 Range Rover Sport HSE Luxury, with gas V8 and 6 speed automatic. It is American Spec, has 178k miles but was an executive commute vehicle for its first five years, never leaving the highway. Always well maintained, always serviced on time.
It is now popping out of gear.
Slowly, when I pull the Gear selector on the center console into Drive, once in a while the car would go into neutral by itself, I would pull back on the lever and it would be fine, engage transmission and accelerate. Solid in gear. I thought maybe the leather was bunching up on the shirft lever, but even holding it up, it still happens. I did move into Sport shift mode, but it feels sticky. I find if I drive holding the Gear Select lever with pressure backwards, it stays in gear, it used to stay in gear once warmed up (may not be a factor), but now I need to keep pressure backwards to keep it in gear.
I am going to take it to the mechanic tomorrow - have them lift it and look at the cable. I wondered if it was the shift mechanism itself. I guess worst case scenario is in the transmission, but when it is in gear, it is solid.
Is there anything I should know, or watch for, when it is at the mechanic?
