Losing Selespeed Oil on 147
Need a bit of advise from you guys. Just had my 147 Selespeed back from a few warranty claim (small oil leak which was a seal on the gearbox) and while the dealer has fixed that, they also did a Campaign 4672 for the selespeed gear box. All was fine up to there.
as I check my oil levels everyweek and I got the car back last week and did my weekly checks on sunday. I noticed the Selespeed oil holder has little oil inside(sitting on the MIN. line) (note:front door opened and pressurised). I just thought they have forgotten to top up the oil after the above recall and service. and the car was driving ok. so I left it til monday morning and dropped into the dealer and the service adviser was happy to top it up and off I go.
Then I went to work and parked for min. of 6hours and when I come back there was a pool of fuild just on the floor next to the left hand side tyre. firstly I thought it was brake leakage but checking the selespeed oil holder, the oil level was back down to the MIN. line. and the oil has all come out from the overflow/breather tube.
go back to the dealer, he then explain to be the selespeed system is just adjusting itself, the level will be fine after a while. and lefted at that...and told me the Selespeed oil is 50 bucks a litre (if I want to keep some to top up). now the selespeed oil holder is sitting on MIN. Line and I can't see any oil leak from there, the hoses connected to the holder and I also felt around the actuator behind the battery, no leak is found.
Should I be worry.. I even clean the breather tube and after driving, I take the tube out and noticed the end is oily (showing the oil is still coming out) if I top it up myself to the MAX line, I bet it iwll just all leak out again. Any Ideas?
thanks in advance.
