Clutch for Alfa 156 2.5 V624 2001
My name is Rodrigo and I'm from Chile this is my first post.
I'm writting becasuse with effort i bought the car of my dreams wich was an Rosso Alfa, Alfa 156 2.5V6 year 2001.
That was 10 days ago.
I checked it in a good mechanic (supposed) store and everything was ok as they said, so I bought it.
Well, after 200 km the car presented it's first problem. For 2 or 3 times I felt it was hard to engage the gears. Well it happens that not I cannot select any gear. I press the clutch pedal to the end, move the lever, but it's impossible to get into 1st, 2nd, reverse or any gear.
If I turn off the car, I can select the gears without problem. Also if I select reverse or 1st gear for example, I press the clutch, and turn the car on, it engages and it can move. After that no matter I'm pressing the pedal to the end it's impossible to take out the gear or select another one.
Is it the clutch plate?
I have to replace the whole kit right?
Does anyone know approximately the cost of a clutch kit for the car?
Thanks a lot.
