147 Problem finding Reverse Gear
I have noticed many threads on gear change issues going into 3rd or 5th, but I have not yet seen anyone mention reverse?
I have just picked up my lovely Alfa 147 JTD 16v, and noticed that when the engine is cold, it will not find reverse gear without firstly putting it into 3rd gear first.....after when in slips in no probs! Same applies with 1st gear, I have to really force it in first time...but 3rd goes in a breeze and almost 'free's up' all the other gears. Is this a problem with the clutch?
It might also be worth noting that this only happens with the engine on i.e. if the engine is off, there are no issues (I only mention this as I am not very clued up at the moment!)
If anyone could offer any advice I would be very grateful!
