selespeed not selecting gear
Before undertaking a further expensive trip to my Alfa garage (or binning it completely) I thought I would join this forum in the hope that someone has experienced similar problems.
I have a 2005 Alfa 156 2.0 Selesepeed. The gear changing has never been great - particular when moving from 1st to 2nd and from 2nd to 3rd (and down again). In the past there has also been a problem with it selecting reverse. More often than not, by going into neutral, then selecting first gear, reverse could then be selected. But now after ignition, no gears will select at all. Occasionally after 5 or more minutes it will select first gear and then once selected it drives and selects gears without issue. There is no warning light.
Any advice would be greatly received.
