Kickdown Adjustment

Recommended Posts

Hi All

 

I have just picked up a low mileage Mk3 VR6 Auto for the misses.  I am not sure the kickdown is working correctly.  It will shift down a gear when i floor it but only one gear and will shift up in 1st at around 4k rpm.  Changes without any slipping and manual selector is fine so I don't believe there is anything too serious with the box.

 

I have the version without a dipstick it that makes any difference.

 

Thanks

The gearbox 'learns' driving behaviour, if it's driven normally the kickdown is as you describe and normal. 

 

If you drive like a nutter the box learns and changes more aggresively, You have the 01m type dipstickless box.

Thanks.....I beleive it can be reset by disconnecting the battery for 15 mins and then left idling for 15 mins?

 

I would like the box to shift down a couple of gears so if I floor it at 2,000 rpm's it rev's higher than say 3,000 rpm's.
