156, selespeed / transmission problems :(
6 months ago I bought a 2003, 156 Selespeed with only 115,000KM.
Since then I have had nothing but trouble and my garage cant seem to find the problem.
I try and explain the 2 major problems and I hope someone can help me how to fix it...
Sometimes and usually after a drive (at least 30 minutes drive) I park the car and come back after about an hour and then I open the car door and the selespeed doensn't go off. No whiney sound.
Sometimes I can solf this by popping the hood lock the car slam the hood down with a litlle bit of force open the door again and then it goes.
This all indicates Selespeed pump but it only happens every so often... Do I need a new pump??
The garage cant find a problem with it
This happened twice now and makes me not want to drive the car anymore.
While I'm driving there is suddenly a light flashing in my RPM meter it's red but doesn't appear to be in the manual and is sort of square with stripe like this: / coming out of it.
What happens the car goes in to Neutral and I cant do anything anymore it doesn't go in to gear anymore.
I can turn the engine on and off that all works but it wont go out of Neutral.
The garage says the can read a tranmission error with there system but it comes up with a code and the cant do anything with that.
I sincerely hope someone understands the problems and can advise me what to do. I havent brought it to a official Alfa garage yet because they charge double what any other garage charges so if someone knows a genuine and reasonably priced garage in and around hurstville area that would be great.
Thanks in advance.
