Reocurring SS actuator Faults
Please make comments relating to faults/problems you have encountered after changing the selespeed actuator and selespeed pump.
This is to guide all selespeed owners in determining whether changing all the above does help or it only prolongs the inivitable.
The common problems, that i know of before changing (older models ) are,
1. Skiping gears ( when the engine is hot ) it will sometimes select gears on its own like reverse while moving forward (yes it has happened to me)
2. Gears getting stuck with no way of accelerating, the car stops at this point.
3.VDC,ABS,Selespeed failure (usually due to low battery charge )
My question is for those who own newer models, what problems do you encounter?
whose fault is it? why should we be made to suffer Alfas incompetence. Mine had problems only after the warranty expired. How do you feel about this? We love Alfa's but how come BMW system designed by the same company works well?
