      Hi I am new to this site so please be gentle.....I have a 03 vogue 30ltr diesal and the trans failsafe program has appeared on the dash and the car sticks in one gear I assume 4th....this remains like this till you switch off but comes back on as you start off again.....It's been to a local garage which said it was due to low oil in the transfer box due to a leak...so leak was repaired and shifter was bench tested to make sure it was working ok which they say it was.....£300 later drove car home and fault came back so I assume it wasn't that so £300 lighter and no closer to fixing problem could anyone help as garage is saying they don't know what it could be now.. Thanks in advance

      hi ant its john steele did you manage to get to the bottom of the over pressure coolant with the l322? i had coolant leaking from the cap so i replaced ,still leaking then replaced the expansion tank ,still leaking. i recently replaced the long hose that goes from the tank to the oil cooler housing via the alternator when i did this i removed the thermostat at the oil cooler end by mistake and im not sure if i got it back in correctly?the strange thing is the pipes to the expansion tank are not over pressure?

      I'd like to ask you a question, sorry in advance. After driving my repaired (LUC groan) L332 about 600 miles with about 1 hour up steep mountain roads I parked up and left the car about 15 mins. I went back to the car, started it and attempted to select reverse. It wouldn't engage in Reverse and instead slipped into neutral and then the engine cut out. The dash warning I think said "select neutral". I restarted the car having put it back into park and it did it again. I thought at the time maybe it had overheated as the uphill journey would have been quite hard on the gear box etc. It did eventually find reverse and all was fine and nothing since even along the long journey home.
      This weekend, I drove it 2 miles and parked up, went back to start her up and similar happened. It wouldn't drop into reverse, instead found neutral then cut out/died. I turned it over once/twice more then all was fine. Any ideas what this maybe. I will post this in a mo too. Cheers very much. Simon
