Is my Alfa nightmare about to begin?
I know is is a well covered area, but I would have to hear some thoughts on my particular set of events.
So on a perfect Sunday morning the car starts up no problems, Its low on fuel and beeps then soon after gives the beeps to say that the km's to empty is below 50. I am driving it in manual mode (and have been for the last month or so) in 3rd gear climbing up a small but steep hill, it beeps again, this time however, it reads selespeed failure! Well this is it I thought.
The warning didn't last more the a couple seconds and the car didn't not miss a beat the whole time, it just kept driving as normal. I decided to go to a petrol station about 5min down the road, keeping it in manual it drove fine.
I checked the sele fluid and the petrol station, I find it hard to tell if its ok but the dipstick was all covered in fluid and car is only 4000km since last service. Oil was fine aswell, So I fuelled up and gingerly kept going this time in City mode.
I probably did another 5 or 10km of stop start in City Mode and it seems fine, got it up to 5th all the gear changes seem fine. Reverse is working, taking Neutral at the lights is fine and the pump is running when the door opens.
The car has been good as gold apart from occasionally delaying slightly when taking reverse, I posted a while back about that and it didn't seem like it was a huge thing.
I will call my mechanic tomorrow and if he think it needs it will bring it in from him to hook up to the diag.
Anyone got any other thoughts?
