156 Gearbox query
I tried to change to fourth straight from second this morning, but it wouldn't go into fourth - just a nasty noise! So I put it in third, then it went into fourth with no drama.
I've done this on every other car I've owned, without any trouble at all, so why is it a problem on my 156?
(Incidentally, my old 1976 Opel Manta (I know, I know) was brilliant in one way - for changing gear without using the clutch. Just get the road speed right and it would go straight into third and fourth without going near the left-hand pedal.)
