I was told it could be transmission fluid , does anyone know where the dip stick is to check it???????????
I have exctly the same problem with my rover 45 v6 2002 , can any one help ????
quote=Delebrin;2574941]My pride and joy (a 45 2.0/V6) is currently languishing in a nearby car park, awaiting the vagaries of AA Roadside Assistance.
This morning it started fine as usual, with no problems along the way. I stopped to pick up a newspaper, and returned to the car to find that I had no forward drive at all. Reverse gear is fine (though not ideal for driving!), but there is absolutely no response in the other direction. A well-meaning passer by suggested that the gear box had gone, and gave me a tale of a gear box replacement which cost him hundreds.
Before I resign myself to paying a fortune, I'd like to know if there's any other cause that would affect the drive like this. There was no prior warning (as far as I heard) to suggest that the gearbox was packing up. A colleague thoiught that it might be a blocked filter(?) or a blown fuse (??) but I'd be grateful if anyone has any better ideas on the subject.[/quote]
