Hi all,

I have a 2012 petrol Orlando. Two weeks ago I got these 2 error codes, went to the garage and got a speed sensor replacement which seems to work fine for 2-3 days. However, as said, a couple of days later we got stuck in the middle of nowhere, gearbox didn't react on a D & R mode so needed to be recovered back home with a broken car. The car has only 25K mileage.

I know that the codes are related to transmission control system & pressure control solenoid, but after a visit to an auto gear specialist, he only and strongly advises to do a gearbox rebuild which will fix the problem. I will as well get a 12-month warranty for the job.

Price quoted was about 2K which is insane for me especially after I bought it only 3 years ago with such low mileage.

Any advice regarding similar problems, other options to fix it or regarding the quote?

Will be much appreciated.
Tom

Tomy, Where in the World are you. You didnt complete your 'location' on sign up.
Only suggestion I can offer is that you use the Forum Index Search function and have a jolly good read up on all previous gearbox posts.There are lots of them too! (all under numerous titles)

Go to Tools>Advanced Search> enter topic>Orlando (worth also searching Captiva sub forum too).

Mackie in Scotland are GM gearbox specialists. A 'new box' is nearer £8000 supplied & fitted from a dealer!!

More info. P0700 comes on because P0776 has. It it usually the latter that is the cause.
The cause is often simply low ATF or 'Burnt' old dirty Automatic Transfer Fluid.
Get them to flush AFT and refill before spending £2,000 or more!

What causes the P0776 code?
This code could be stored for lots of reasons. Some of the more common ones include:

An electronic pressure control solenoid that isn’t working
Mechanical internal transmission errors
The internal transmission fluid passages are suffering from hydraulic blockages
Low transmission fluid
Contaminated transmission fluid
Mechanical internal transmission failures
Faulty PCM

Hi Tomybay, I was quoted around £1600 = £1750 for rebuilding my box, don`t know how mechanically minded you are but I rebuilt my own, it cost me around £500 for all the parts and wasn`t difficult once the box is out. If it`s a 6t45 box I`ve got a workshop manual you can borrow, just let me know. Good luck, Howard.

Amin, Have you tried the number one basic possible solution ......... flushing and replacing the ATF. Read post entry #3
Until you've ruled that out then there is no point in further discussions as to what might be the solution.
Tell us more about your vehicle ... such as mileage.
