    Default Freelander 2 sd4 transmission problem

    Good day everyone
    I am currently experiencing very harsh shifting from my Freelander 2. When decelerating the downshifts are very hard as well as when shifting into 1st from standstill, in traffic. What are the possible issues? Do I need a update on my software, if there is any available, or do I need to replace the transmission oil? If I need an update does only Land Rover provide this? And if I need oil, which oil should I use? Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks
    Hendri

    The Freelander boxes are now starting to show their age.

    There is a software update, if the car has allready had the update ir the software doesn't fix it, the valve body is the most likely culprit and will need replacing.

    Good luck as they're very expensive. Hope the software update works
