Alfa Romeo GT

Jumping out of 3rd gear

I recently brought a 2006 Alfa GT 1.9 JTDM. I am loving it but on a few occasions it has jumped out of 3rd gear and into neutral. It seems to have done this when I've been in 3rd at low speed for a while - slow moving traffic etc. Anyone got any ideas why this may happen?

Not heard of this problem specific to GT's. Possibly a linkage (from lever to box) problem?

Could be a detent ball issue. Simple and cheap fix if it is.
