alfa 156 gearbox problems??
i recently purchased an alfa 156 sportswagon selespeed registered in 2001 on an X plate.Always wanted an alfa,this car was spotless ,it has full service history,all the belts changed when they should have been changed,only 84000 miles etc etc.Spent £300 on service and then the gears started playing up.When the car slowed down the gears went down, but when it reached 1st gear it stalled and made a vibration noise.I tried getting home but it stalled again and stopped.
The engine now doesn't turn over,the hydraulic pump does not come on when you open the door.The oil light , battery light and engine management light come on when the ignition is on and there are two very small oil patches under the engine,which were not there before.
I would appreciate any advice anyone has got to try and get it fixed ,many thanks graham
