Problem: The car does not change up into top gear.

The autogearbox has been functioning without problem. The car is normally used locally, but the other day undertook a fairly long motorway trip and was fine for the outward journey. However the next day on the return journey it would not change up into top gear, limiting top speed to around 50 mph and making motorway driving frustrating. It has not been possible to get top gear since.

What could be the cause of the problem?

check the fluid level in the gearbox as it sounds as if that long journey caused some to leak out.

Gearbox fluid checked, both level and colour are fine, with no sign of any leaks.

Is there anything else that can be checked?
