Selespeed Oil Reserve Odity
Ok, I have a 2000 156 2.0 TS selespeed.
Now the car runs perfectly, fixed all the selespeed problems inherited from the previous owner, even have a mate with a 2004 JTS Selespeed jealous of how smooth & well my selspeed works.
I always check the reservoir level once a week, and since a couple of weeks ago, it is presenting strange behaviour. If the car is let to stand idle for a couple of hours, I check the fluid level WITHOUT opening the drivers door or place the key to MAR, and it is almost to the top of the container. So I then open door, place key in to MAR and the pump whirles away till it stops, I then check the fluid and it is below the baffle!!!
So you know what happens if I then top it up to the MAX level as one is supposed to, don't you?
When the car is then left to stand, all the fluid drains back into the reservoir, over fills & pours out the over flow tube onto the garage floor!!!
Anyone ever come across this one before, has me a tad puzzled??
