selespeed gear jumps
first of all thanks to those who welcomed me to the forum as a newbie yesterday.I've been checking out the forum for the last couple of weeks and you have all given loads of info really helpful to a first time alfa owner.
I know selespeed gear problems seem to be the biggest bugbear - and yes here I am with my query
Like nearly everybody it's third gear which is giving headache. It feels like the gear drops into neutral although it still shows 3rd. I've already given up on city mode. I am currently managing by staying in 2nd, taking it up to 3500 revs and changing pretty smartly up through 3rd then immediately 4th. So far this has been working for me, but I wonder whether this is likely to accentuate damage to the gearbox/clutch.
Any thoughts / observations HELP would be much appreciated
