I would really recommend you get an error code read done.  The battery voltage causing a gearbox error goes away immediately.  If yours is coming back that points at a potential transmission issue.  Given repairs can cost £2k, a code read could save you money in case something has really gone bad and the box is correctly in protect mode

my mechanic did plug in and reset if i remember it logged 4th & 5th misfuntion .. i will ask him & confirm these codes that we got .. voltage wise on battery  we got correct leveĺs present  .. he did suggest having a gearbox oil change but im not conviced thats the problem as not even trying change to 4th & 5th in manual mode it like the computer shut it off ..

One of the likely places is the orange gaskets that seals the inlet manifold and it’s running down the manifold to appear somewhere else.

could well be .i have just ordered new gaskets " was ganna blank swirl flaps but turns out none on the inlet "

Rocker cover/ cam cover Gasket ?

looks good on inspection apart from old gunk.. more fresh furthur down around the little tube pipes " above where cooler sits" .. do plan on having proper gander tomorrow
