hi there , can anyone advise me on a gearbox problem that i have ? when i used to start the car from hot or cold , the engine will slow down for a split second when i selected a gear & then run ok which i would of said was normal , but recently when i select a gear it slows down so far that it sometimes stalls , i did'nt think you could stall an automatic . has anyone had the same problem ? any ideas would be a great help , cheers , Paul .

hi people , the car is a p38 diesel , also there is no noticable change when the engine is loaded , & the car drives as it should with very smooth gear changes in both hi & low ratio . its just from neutral to drive or neutral to reverse that the engine shudders the revs drop & sometime stalls . it sound like it needs an adjustment to stop the drag to me , can these gear boxes be adjusted at all ? thanks for all the usefull advise & any more advise that you can give me . Paul .
