Hi Gerry,

Thank you so much for your fast reply

There's nog change in temperature these days so I don't think it has anything to do with heat or cold. I can use the gearbox in manual mode but it still takes a few seconds before the car actually moves slowly and it makes a noise (it's the same movement and noise when I put it in D). When I put it in R it starts to drive forwards immeadiatly without making any noise.
