    Default Very High RPM before moving off in first or reverse.

    I give it over 3000 RPM before moving from stationary this happens in, first or reverse. That was the start of my troubles.
    Next 3 bars then, power loss. Performed on, off (in traffic) to get moving again. At times while attempting to reverse the position is in reverse but remains in first. And sometimes the car judders when stationary in first gear (when coming to a halt).
    With the gear stick in neutral the position (at times) will not display N and stays in drive.
    I get out and rock the car until it frees returning to the neutral position
    oh' and loss of power,
    Can it be the actuator? or a sensor or both??

    One way to find out ....


    First check carefully through this (especially the chafed wires):

    and do this anyway:

    The spray in the actuator got me more comfortably on the road. Many thanks. Howbeit I'm getting very high RPM from about 3700 -4700 before shifting 1-2, 2-3. and smell of petrol at start.

    The shift points are moved when engine is cold , cos the engine is effectively on choke , there explains your fuel smell too...

    The only other thing I can suggest is check (or just replace) fuel filter , you haven’t said how old the car is , but I’ll guess it’s the original filter.....
