My Selespeed went in to the dealer this morning because it misses 3rd gear on the way up through the box. Intermittent problem and seems worst when the car is warmed up (15-20 miles). It works fine on the way back down the box.
Really annoying problem when I tried to pass a VW Passat... and I was left for dust as I could not select 3rd! This was on a dual carriageway (we don't have alot of them here)... so on a 'normal' road this problem could be more serious!
Any other selespeed anomalies?
On the oil issue, my car uses about 250ml every 600miles. I check it weekly and do about 500miles per week! A mechanic told me that the origional oil filter contails a valve to keep a proportion of oil in the top of the engine at all times esp starting and high revs.
