156 - jumping out of 3rd and 5th
On way home last night...mates 156 manual jumped out of 3rd and 5th a couple of times when on the motorway.
He's had it a couple of weeks and hadn't done it before. It also didn't do it when we razzed it on the test drive. It has only done it a couple of times, but it is annoying.
In the service history, there is mention of a gearbox seal being replaced due to a leak.
Could it be the input seal and they haven't set the cables up properly when putting it back together ?
The gear change is smooth as silk. No crunching or anything. Just slips in nice, so no feeling of synchro problems. I have asked him to check if the stick rocks when he is on and off the power, to see if engine mounts could be the fault.
What else should I check ?
This is his first Alfa, he always wanted a 156 after seeing my old one and it would be sods law for him to buy a duff one after everyone else told him to stick with BMW.
