C4 Grand Picasso 2008 automatic gear problem! HELP!

My car is a diesel automatic with less than 80k miles. It is not a great car but right now, it's the only one I can afford.

It barely passed its MOT, and now, gear problems

When you accelerate, it should go 1st...2nd....3rd etc.

It currently takes persuading to get into 2nd or 3rd gear and frequently drops into a lower gear by itself.

If I switch to 'M' electronic manual gear change it still protests.

It's obviously got a problem, I don't know what and I am definitely not a mechanic. I need that car and I need to take it to someone competent who is relatively local as the car might ne be safe. Motorways are probably out.

I am in Barnet Hertfordshire.

I absolutely cannot write out a blank cheque

You might want to address this to this forum. https://www.cactusforums.co.uk/

The first question they will ask is which gearbox do you have as the C4 Picasso was fitted with either a proper auto box, or a piloted semi-automatic EGS box. The full auto box was only fitted to 2.0 diesels, but there was also an EGS version. I had one of those. The 1.6 diesel is only fitted with the EGS box (manual lso available). You can tell the difference from the gear selector, the full auto has a park position.
