    Exclamation HELP : Zeek - Pajero 3.2 gearbox issue (Colesberg) (Problem sorted)

    He (Rico) is about 5km from Colesberg (coming from Cape Town)

    I spoke to him over the phone and he has gearbox overheating issues with his pajero 3.2 auto.

    I suspect either he has the wrong oil in or the oil level was incorrect.

    I gave him instruction to pull over and idle if the A/T temp light comes on until it switches off and then nurse the car further.

    If somebody can help with contacts as to where he can get the oil flushed with Dia Queen and fix an oil leak on it (not sure if it's the culprit or cause or if it's the overflow due to the heat)

    His number is zero eight too ate seven for 7 double 0 eight.

    Thanks guys.

    The clever ones are being outbred & overruled by the not so clever ones. Pair that with unchecked selfishness. We are heading for a fall!

    he just phoned me again. Car is juddering so he called it a day and is trying to get a tow in through outsurance.

    Any help with good mechanic or maybe just accommodating him if the car needs to spend the night in colesberg or bloem (not sure up to where outsurance will flatbed him)

    I sent him the link to this thread so he can watch it while the waiting game continues as outsurance may take some time.

    Words of encouragement may help him here but organisational with him should be done via phone directly.

    Once we're sorted it would be nice to find out if AJ was available to help or not.
    I just did a search on the forum looking for somebody saying they were from Colesberg and he was the most recent (only??) one that came up in the search.
