HARSH ENGAGE INTO D or R

While this seems like a minor problem, and while most people tend to ignore it… The first thing to check is the gearbox mountings. If they are worn, replace them and see if the problem is still there. Secondly, check if the problem could be due to a lack of oil pressure. This can be caused by a damaged pump or a leaking /damaged drum. Over time, this harsh engaging slowly causes more and more damage until eventually the gearbox will fail completely. So hopefully by the time the vehicle reaches a workshop, the damage is not too bad. The main causes of this are: Valve body Malfunction & Mechanical Damage inside the gearbox.
