Troubles with IPS (Evora NA) - please help me

Recommended Posts

For a month I am a lucky owner of an Evora NA.

The car came used (MY11) with nearly 7000km and in perfect condition.

But soon I realized that there must be a problem with the IPS transmission.

Shifting from gear 2 to 3 takes very long and the engine rpm is going up for

a moment (nearly 500 rpm's too high). It is not only an "acoustic ugliness" but

especially an unpleasant driving experience.

Also I need to mention that with higher temperature of motor and transmission

it is getting better.

My local Lotus dealer already checked the fuel level of the oil, changed the

transmission control box and updated motor and gearbox to the newest firmware ...

During the last 1000km I experienced the gearshift was getting better and better

and I thought the problems could be solved soon.

But today it happened again. I was driving up a hill, the gearbox switched from

2 to 3 and the behaviour was again as described before. Since than I have the

same situation with that long pause between 2 and 3.

I can't believe that this is normal so I am asking for your help ...

Please have a look at the videos I have uploaded to

Many thanks for your support - kind regards, Gernot
