No doubt some of you Selespeeders will have experienced some of the following:
- Crunch going from 2nd to 1st doing anything over 15mph? Should you ever try to engage 1st while moving at all? I'm told there are no synchros..somethings.
- 2nd to 3rd change is slow and "lurchy"
- blinking '2' in dash display hi revs and no power going from 3rd into 2nd on occasion! I've even had to pull up with hazards as unable to select any gear.
Anyone, anyone... apparently this is all normal behaviour for a 156! Gulp!!

the blinking 2 from my experience it something to be worried about and pulling up because you cannot select any gear spells trouble to me.
I have had months of similar problems and my gearbox needed £1000 worth of new a actuator (of which there are more than one) and a new selespeed pump, this is not a little quirk of the box, it says to me you may have serious problems, check your selespeed oil level, if thats ok get it to an expert and on the computer.
They told me for over six months my car was fine until it finaly f00ked up terminaly stuck in fifth in the end.
