Hi i have asked this question to Smaky, and he has offered his oppinion and a fix, just want to thank him again and dont want to undermine him at all, i just wanted to see if i could get any other feelings on the problem.
While i was driving yesterday 4th would not engage. If you go into 4th the revs would drop first then, the car would just rev, and i would have to skip to 5th. Finally when forth did engage it got stuck in 4th and would not engage any gears, it was just llike the clutch was stuc on. The car had the cluch replaced at 87,000 iths on 99,000 now.
Ive just gone through my last service and realised that they did advise me i had a gearbox oil leak from the fith gear seal (if that makes any sense). I have notised that there is a very metalic noise when i am driving. ( if i drive past a wall or somthing i can hear it).
Could it be a possibility that i do not have enough oil in my gearbox!!! And could this have broken it. Should have had it fixed when they said. But i forgot. I havnt notticed any oil patches on the floor tho that i can recall.
Any other veiws would be appreciated. thanks.
