    i have a 06 LR3 SE Gas V8 4.4L ive had a transmission Fault on the dash for a while, the car slams in to gear when performing Cali stops (Accelerating from a rolling stop), and the manual/Sport feature on the Gear Shifter does not work (basically doesn't register its in sport mode and just stays in automatic).

    I was just wondering how to start with fixing all of this i have started the process with buying a new Floor Shifter Box any other suggestions or theories?? Please and Thanks

    It is hard to give advice on your next steps without some more info.

    Do you have a GAP IIDtool?
    Have you read the error codes?
    They may help narrow down your issues.
    If you attempt any DIY with these, it is highly recommended that you get one.

    - Could be as simple as needing new fluid, and a firmware update - and cleaning dirty contacts in the shift mechanism (any drink spills in that area?)

    - More involved would be needing new valve body/solenoids - and a new shift mechanism

    - Worst is obviously requiring a new transmission

    Get some error codes and we can go from there!

    We had basically the same issue with our 06 LR3. It progressively got worse and after debating over a year or so we finally decided to put a new transmission in. We've had it in a couple of years now and are glad we did it. We had 160k-ish miles on it.
