Couldn't select 3rd
I was out driving today and everything was fine until i couldn't any longer select 3rd gear, I've been reading a number of threads on the site which to be honest has confused me even more.
There is no grinding or any sounds, it just seems as though a barrier had been built and it wouldn't go up into third!
Needless to say i returned to the car a short while later with still no luck, then after about 15miles average driving and a little force i managed to select it.
It isn't quite right though and feels very resistant when trying to even now. I don't want to force every time through fear of doing some serious damage, Any idea's????
I previously owned a 145 which i loved and realised that owning an alfa isn't without its problems, however, I have alfa in my blood......money i don't!!!
Oh, its a manual too, i was advised against a selespeed due to its gearbox problems!
