  1. Hi all! I have an 06 grand voyager 2.8 auto and I'm having an issue with the trans slipping. I bought it 2 weeks ago and wasn't sure, but last week it started slipping really badly. 1st seems fine, but it slips up to speed from a stop and changes up nearly straight away. 2nd is the worst. It's slightly better when cold, if I just manage the throttle I can keep the slipping low, but when hot it slips awfully and I have to rev the engine up to 2.5k to make any progress. Most of my driving is around town so you can imagine this can cause some issues. 3rd will slip either during the shift from 2nd to 3rd, or if I'm trying to accelerate up a hill, and 4th is generally locked up so there's no slipping at all there. The fluid is pretty dirty so I'm going to drop the pan this week, put some fresh fluid in with a bottle of stop slip, hopefully this will make it better but if it doesn't, what's my first port of call for fixing it? I have the torque pro app on my phone which doesn't show any codes, though I don't know if it will show trans codes so I'm tempted to stop by a garage and have them plug it in with a decent reader just to check. Would it be worth changing the solenoid pack? Or if the fluid change doesn't work am I looking at a recon gearbox? If you need any more info please ask, I really want to get this sorted and I don't have the time or money to just leave it with a specialist, and I don't want my first proper auto to be a very expensive learning experience. Thanks
