I hope i get this right as i'm new to the club.
i bought a cmax about 6 months ago and it has been running great. i had a problem with black smoke coming out but thanks to this site i managed to clean the egr and solve the problem.
now. around 4 weeks ago my wife was driving the car when she said it felt like "something came off" and the car just rev up. a number of lights came up. the AA got my car home and a garage (which i just purchased another car from) came out and cleared most of the lights but could not clear the "gearbox malfunction".
After reading in great depth the comments in the forum i am a little worried as the car is not under warrenty.
The car has done 60k. i put it into P,R,N and it does not rev or move( there is some indication when in R that it has done something)
When i use the D it just rev's up but does not move. this is the same when i use the manual side. it just rev's up.
Is there anything i need to be looking at? what may be the cause of this problem.
I have been quoted 100 pound for someone just to look at it. I do not have that kind of money at the minute.
I would appreciate any help.
Thank you in advance.
I have a \"54\" plate zetec tdci 1.6.
