Help Alfa 147 JTD Issues Help

Hi All

I recently purchased an Alfa 147 1.9 JTD...Ive had a few issues with it though if any body could help me.

1)The gears seem to be abit sticky when going into 1st and 2nd gear. Often i am not able to go into reverse or 6th gear at all. Also when the car is stationary on a forward incline i am only able to find 3rd gear...i have read alot of threads regarding replacing the gear linkage bushes but when i spoke to the alfa dealer about them , they said it could be the gear linkages.

2)When i accelerate theres a long trail of white smoke behind me .I have heard that is normal for diesel cars but i just wanted some feedback is that normal for the guys who have JTDs???????????????

Please if you have any remedies or advice on the current problems would be a big help

1 does sound like the bushes.

2 can be any number of things, try and get your codes read with FES, if you do not have the leads post on the south Africa section I'm sure someone will help you out!
