2.2 150 Gear Box

Recommended Posts

Hi all

I have a 09 plate 2.2 150 t4 avensis tourer. I love the car and it's just done 40k miles. The only thing that annoys me is when changing from 1st to 2nd you can feel a slight crunch feel through the gear stick but only when cold really. My Auris t180 also did this too. Does anybody have any ideas how to stop it or improve? I've heard some people say change to a decent gear box Oil. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

Carl

My 2008 2.2 has done this from new dealer said nothing wrong with it!!! I have now done 162000 and it still does it, I think its the clutch operation that causes it ,the pedal requires frequent lubrication to maintain a smooth action. Any way at least my head gasket has not gone YET!!!!!!!!!!!

I also have a 09 plate 2.2 150 t4 avensis tourer and it also has 40000 on the clock. Like yours it can be notchy engaging 1st and 2nd when cold (much more noticeable in the winter). I have had mine for about 18 months and bought it with about 27000 on the clock following my usual policy of buying a relatively young but higher mileage vehicle on the basis that as I am retired my mileage is low and when I come to change the car will be on or below average miles. I find that the problem rapidly disappears once the car is is thoroughly warm. I bought my car primarily as a caravan tug at which it is superb.

This could be an easy fix! I changed my box Oil to Silkolen PRO SRG full double ester straight 75 grade Oil!... Give it a whirl...

Mine does that too, between 1st and 2nd. Haven't done it yet, but I believe changing the Oil might help

not just Tourers, not just 2.2s, indeed not just Avensis - it's "normal" for this gearbox.
