    Default Disco 2 auto gearbox adaptation

    When one reset the gearbox adaptation, is it just a matter of taking it for a drive afterwards so the gearbox ECU can "learn" new adaptation settings?

    might have made

    FRAM RAVE;
    With time, the components in a gearbox wear and the duration of the gear shifts tends to increase, which has an adverse effect on the brake clutches. To counteract this, the EAT ECU applies a pressure adaptation to each shift. To calculate the adaptations, the EAT ECU monitors the pressure modulation used, and time taken, for each shift. If a subsequent shift of the same type, in terms of throttle position and engine speed, has a longer duration, the EAT ECU stores an aptation for that type of shift in a volatile memory. The adaptation is then included in future pressure calculations for that type of shift, to restore shift duration to the nominal.

    Increased load/reduced torque compensation
    To aid performance and driveability in the high range economy mode, the EAT ECU has three adaptive shift and lock-up maps. These maps delay upshifts and torque converter lock-up similar to the sport mode if the inputs from the engine indicate:
    1. A sustained high load on the engine, such as occurs when the vehicle is ascending a steep gradient or towing a
    trailer.
    2. A lower than normal engine torque, such as occurs at altitude or high ambient temperatures.
    The EAT ECU monitors the engine inputs and selects the most appropriate adaptive map for the prevailing conditions.

    For my driving style, I found it better to reset and then drive her in sports mode for a day or 2. Much better then.

    Jakes, after resetting the adaptation, should I drive in any style, or just my normal (heavy footed ) manner?

    I assume that you have done this before.......

    Yip, done it plenty times by now. Played with it to see what is best. It's a brilliant system since it will adapt to numerous changes you make regarding your drive train and even torque converter.

    If you have a heavy foot drive her like you're in a hurry. There's probably specs somewhere, but I found 2 days driving and she's back to normal/better !!
