Well it's a bit long story...
In resume, these were the symptoms of my 2004 Alfa 147 Selespeed 2.0
1. I put key on MAR position and a really loud sound starts (was like the normal pump and other unusual loud electric sounds), dunno if it matters but it was a wet and cold night, the problem went away next day.
2. This was a dangerous one, I was in an avenue, 70kms/h aprox when suddenly gas pedal stayed stuck to the bottom (Cruise Control was off), tried to slow down gradually with the brake pedal but it was blocked, Selespeed malfunction appears on the board so I started to use hand break, shut the engine offI and parked in a safe place, waited few minutes and everything was working fine except I couldn't change from 2 to 3, then strangly all was ok again.
3. Another day, I did a short trip (like 8kms), and it started to vibrate while shifting gears, parked it and after some hours I turn on engine but there was a strange noise in the engine (like a grinding, crying rat or whatever is called), checked oil levels both engine and Selespeed, but they were ok. Tried to put 1st gear but it was impossible, also R, so my Alfa went to home on a crane.
So those have been the problems I had during the last 2 months with my Alfa, dunno if it's important to mention that oil levels are ok and battery has been renewed like 4 months ago.
I haven't used this car for the last month, since it's not possible to put 1st/R and engine does a loud grinding noise.
Anyone got an idea what is the problem with it? hope someone can help me with this.
(Sorry if it's not 100% understandable, English is not my main language)
