2006 Range Rover L322
I recently purchased a 2006 Range Rover with the 4.4 Jag V8, and as soon as I got it home I changed the engine oil, differential oil, transfer case oil, differentials front and back oil and transmission fluid. After pouring in the new fluid until it was leaking out of the fill plug, I tightened the plug and started it up and went through PRNDL 20 seconds each. I poured more oil in until it was leaking out of the fill hole again and it was all good. On my way to the mechanic to get it certified, it was not shifting out of fourth gear. When I got there, they told me that the fluid level was very low. They topped it up with the same oil that I had put in there (I had a couple bottles with me) and it has been great for the past couple months or so for long trips and regular driving. I was getting a rough shift out of first gear on cold starts, but it got better after I reset the transmission data (push brake for 20 seconds while truck in "on" but not started). ever since changing the transmission fluid (I did it by threading in a pipe fitting and attaching a hose onto it and bringing the hose up into the engine bay and pouring it in the clear pipe down to the plug), when I turned on the heater I would smell transmission fluid when I am sitting at a traffic light or parked, not when I am driving. Originally I thought that this was just some leftover oil that I had spilled onto the engine are and when the truck heated up I would smell it, however I am starting to get concerned now because after a month of driving regularly it should have burned off by now. The other week, when I started it and put it into reverse and drive, it would not go anywhere. I re-started the truck and it was fine for a long time. After starting it yesterday, the driver information centre said "Transmission fault, Limited gears". I freaked out so here I am now. Thanks for your time I appreciate it!
