2006 Citroen c5 station wagon automatic transmission failure once oil reaches a certain temperature

Post by Gerry_G » 12 Oct 2018, 10:18

Need some help/answers please. My 2006 Citroen station wagon is going into limp mode once the oil temperature rises. Once I start the car and drive for 10 minutes the automatic gearbox starts slipping. I will need to stop the engine wait for the oil to cool down and restart. The Citroen auto service can’t figure out the problem (even with the computer). Can anyone help me with this issue. The car has 199,000 kilometers.
Thankyou

We need to know which type of engine and gearbox are fitted to your car. If you post the VIN, we can work out the details. Do you know what error codes are produced?

Has the oil been changed & the level correctly checked?
