ASTRONIC problem with changing gears
Are your experiencing problems with the AS Tronic,such as the unexpected and troublesome changing of gears?
You can recognise this problem by the gearbox shifting at high engine speeds of 1700 rpm or higher. The AS Tronic also does not change gears when slightly releasing the accelerator or takes a long time to switch back gears. This is often accompanied with considerable background noises from the gearbox when switching back gears.
This happens especially when the truck is loaded,but also occurs when starting to drive when it’s empty.
The result is an undesirable rise in fuel consumption. It is also a source of annoyance for the driver and –in case of night-time runs –for local residents. Furthermore,it damages the goods.
