Selespeed 2nd gear
Hi guys, looking for somehelp.
ive just done an oil change on my car, and now ive developed a problem with my selespeed gear box.
Initially i noticed that when picking up speed from 1st to select 2nd there would be a delay (longer then normal) i tried driving the car in city mode and the same would happen. Now the problem as i have it now, i cant select 2nd gear when im in 1st. When pulling away in first gear and i attempt to select 2nd gear, it'l pause for about a second sometimes 2, then select 3rd, now if im in 3rd i can select second gear as normal but as you can imagine this can cause problems when traveling uphill. once in a blue moon it will select 2nd but still with this huge delay.
with the car set to Mar i can select all the gears. now from what ive been reading on the forums it sounds like it could have something to do with the rod length. but i dont have alfa diag.
One thing to note i did have issue with the seespeed about 4 months ago (car would keep slipping to neutral) but a trip down to Simplyalfa and they had it fixed, they told me it was an issue with a small component in the car and they think they may have solved a majority of selespeed issues unfortunately they were reluctant to tell me what it was.
now i'm not sure if the oil filter change had anything to do with it but it seems too big of a coincidence to be ignored.
any help as always is appreciated!
