    Driving along ( nice sunny day)

    suddenely gears did not want to be selected.

    engine started reving and drive reduced. ( like a slipping clutch)

    Stopped car. Turned off restarted and all back to normal.

    Happened again. Stopped restarted all normal.

    It is like the clutch has been selected but if it had i would expect to be able to select gears easily.
    the car still moved but it was like the clutch was still partially engaged.
    .

    Yet turn car off and all back to normal.

    AT no time did the 'clutch ' light come on.


    ANY experts with any ideas?

    Wow, what a rare car! There's like 15 total in the US? I wish I could help; you'll have a tough time finding anyone who's even seen one let alone worked on one outside of your mechanic who's seen your car.

    Jon,

    Long time since I worked on a valeo system, however the workshop manual has a detailed section about the system, if you want I could photocopy it and fax / post it to you, just PM me your details.

    Did you get those notes via e-mail? Being the owner of a Valeo t Cab, too, I would be interested in having every piece of documentation available wrt the system, just in case ..

    No by post.

    I have quite a good range of manuals now, if you need something just ask ill copy it for you.

    The problem went away for 100 miles orr so. then came back now has gone again.

    The manual shows great detail ,but hasnt offered any simple solutuions.... but it will help me to look at it.

    It only seems to happen in the last 3 miles before i get home !

    Thank you for offering to share your documentation. I will contact you in this matter as soon as some issue with the Valeo system requires to deal with it in depth.

    I have won an auction on a CD that allegedly contains a comprehensive repair manual for the Valeo more than a month ago. Alas the bidder never bothered to answer my emails or to collect his money. I am still trying to get this documentation, should I be successful I can also offer something in return.
