Hi David, this may or may not be the answer. But I had the same sort of problem with a Range Rover I had. On checking the transmission fluid it was black so I changed fluid and the filter and problem solved. Gearbox specialists were telling me it needed a new box but it worked out well for me. Hope your problem is as simple as mine was.
