What is EGS? Features & technical parametres of the gear box

EGS is a 6-speed automated transmission with a manual mode, used on Citroën and Peugeot cars. It debuted in 2007. Its special firmware allows the gearbox to adapt to the individual driving style. EGS is quite reliable. Its common malfunctions are jerks and knocks during shifting. Usually, these problems can be fixed by reflashing the transmission control unit.

Operating principle

EGS is a two-shaft transmission with a dry single-plate clutch and electro-hydraulic control module. There are several settings for fuel-efficient, comfortable, or sportive driving offered for automatic mode. Transmission control in the manual mode is performed with the help of the gear lever or paddle shifters.

    There may be several options, check the torque converter, if the problem is not in it, then most likely a complete overhaul of the gearbox is necessary, if the problem persists, then replace the gearbox with a new one.
