    Hi This is a daft question but the shifting is a bit rough on the car (I have only had it a week) so I checked the oil level via the dipstick with the engine hot and the car on a level road. I found it difficult to see a clear level but a large section of the marked end of the dipstick looked to have oil on it, way above the correct mark. I would have expected the level to be low with the poor shifting. Is it normally a problem reading the level?

    Many thank in advance Dave

    Hi Malcolm
    Many thanks, there is one rubber vacuum hose coming off the back front face of the inlet manifold with no sign of a pipe to go into it, could this be for the auto box? I have just received the Haynes manual but my engine does not correspond to any of the pictures so I assume it covers the later models even though it says 1993 to 2000!

    I have been reading your other post,,and welcome to the forum :D:D The pipe being off can be the reason.

    these are all the links that there are for this.

    If there is an engine fault it can make the gearbox worse as it will not know what to do, if the power is down,,in any case the vacuum pipes must be sorted as this can affect the engine and the box.

    I have not forgotten your other post
