Automatic transmissions are very sensitive to the engine running perfectly. When did you last perform a service? Is the idle speed high? Is the crankcase breather tube broken at its joint with the T piece underneath the engine acoustic cover?

Hello, how to insert photos? I checked the crankcase breather tube and i think it's already affected: there is some mastic on the T.

Well done. That's best renewed then (LLH 102660). You don't want a vacuum leak there!

Hello, Iím going to replace the part. I would go to an automatic transmission specialist for my problem. For the moment we are confined to France.
The gear changes are not very harsh but I feel them especially during the kick down and when I brake.

Renew the defective crankcase breather tube then go on another test drive. As I said, if the engine isn't running smoothly it can affect the operation of the automatic gearbox.
