Ever since i bought my 156 1.8 a year ago, it has displayed an occasional gearbox strangeness, that unfortunatly is now become worse and more frequent.
Most of the time changes are really nice and light but then and quite suddenly, usually when going from 3rd to 4th, the lever will feel incredibly heavy and sticky to move. Its like trying to move it through tar! Within a change or two it will then clear itself. It never seems to happen below 3rd gear, just the top three ratios.
Yesterday it happened and was worse than ever, to the point i could hardly change at all. Again, within a few shifts it cleared. I know that the clutch bearing squeals a bit on downshifts - always has - don't know if this means anything. The car has covered 55K.
Any ideas much appreciated,
Nice people drive Alfa's
