th700 probs ............. please help

i know its not old, (wifes car) but..... i have a vr commodore all stock with th700 trans, we've had the car for a few years and when we first got it, the trans crapped itself, we got it rebuilt well so they said, it went back to the trans place 5 or 6 times, and still wasnt right so i threw my hands up in the air and put up with the thing... well now its come back on me.. and now to the fun part, sometimes wont go into 3rd. first, second ok, then like it hits neutral instead of third. not all the time, doesnt matter if hot or cold, being hammered or babied. all fuses ok. wiring plug into trans ok. ignition cycles dont matter, be driving along, wont go in, then stop at lights and then it will go in. fluid clean and right level. please help

You could go to ur local holden dealer and get to to check the trans with their Tech 1 diag tool. They might be able to determine whether its a mechanical or electrical fault(can command 3rd and check for Torque Converter Clutch slippage, etc). The trans in the vr onwards is called a 4l60-E, basically the th700 with electronics. If it turns out to be trans, best to get a remanufactured unit, cheaper and easier then buggering around with knackered one, i know from experience!

Good luck!
