    Hi, help required please
    My auto box packed up last night on my Freelander 2 2007
    Managed to limp it home but was slipping bad but when I stopped and rested it, presumably cooled down it would drive a bit further
    It's done 153k not sure if the ATF has ever been changed
    Question is would an oil change or top up help or is it likely to be way beyond that now?
    If so any suggestions for repair or replacement greatly appreciated
    Many thanks for any help as new to this forum

    Welcome to the forum.

    Had the car long?

    Check the transmission air blast oil cooler (6) matrix, if fitted, isn’t damaged or blocked. Otherwise I think you’ll need an auto transmission specialist.

    I’d also check the hoses and pipes while you’re at it for kinks, dings and dents that could reduce flow.
