    My 2001 406 sometimes shocks, then the sport and snow lights starts
    flashing, there display shows 'Automatic gear fault', and the gear box
    is stuck in third gear. If I turn off and start the engine, it seems OK.
    It might be weeks between this happens, or it might be several times
    in a few minutes.

    My Peugeot dealer had never heard about problems with the automatic
    transmission(!). They've upgraded the transmission software, and this
    didn't solve the problem.

    Is there a simple solution to this problem, or is replacement or
    overhaul of the transmission necessary? (I've seen something about
    replacing one or more valves, but not which valves or how complicated
    this operation is).
