...momentarily.

Going through a small roundabout I flicked left then right then left to continue on my way...but the car revved up and there was no drive, though it came back shortly after without having to stop.

Sounds like it's low on fluid?

Yes it is just low on fluid and it all went away from the pumps for a split second, possible pilot bush leak

I'll have a look...at least there's no oil in the tcu...so could be relatively recent.

See if there are any drips under the car, the rubber interlock seals failed on my 140
