Hi Everyone
Have a weird problem with the auto in a 93 Barina, some mornings i go to take off and the auto will not select 1st or 2nd gear, i can drive it manually using the t-bar changing up and down no problem, but it will not automatically select the gears or kick down. Then usually after about 30 mins of manually changing it comes good and works perfectly. The next morning it either works perfectly or its back to manually changing gears again.

I changed the position selector on top of the gearbox with a rebuilt unit, but that didn't help. I went to wreckers to get another "transmission control unit" from two wrecked 90 and 94 Barinas, when i got home and looked at both these units the units looked identical but had different part numbers on them.I tried them both anyway but auto did not change, other than by manual changing.
I then put the orig control unit back in and it worked perfectly until next morning, then back to square one again.

How many control units are there for a 90-94 Barina auto anyway???

Any suggestions would be very much appreciated, and by the way the auto has had a full oil chage and filter done as well.

Search auto trans won't shift, or 'shift solenoids'. It's been covered lots here. You likely need to test and replace 2 solenoids in your transmission. It's not a huge deal.
