Alfa 156

1st and 2nd gear no 4th and 3rd and 5th fail

I love my alfa 156, and wife has the 147, have had them for 4 years, and now , have had selespeed done about 2 years ago, had been running very well till the other day when the 1st and 2nd gear started flashing, then got into 5th gear and car did not engage gear couldn't do nothing to get it back into gear, and then all of a sudden drops to 3rd missing 4th and then 2nd flashing again but at least engaged, this went on for a few minutes, then car went back to working normal again.
Have dropped it into a specialist mechanic, he couldn't find anything on the diagnostics and then drove it home on two nights and had no problem, charged me $120 and told me it had no problem, selespeed oil level is fine, has any one had this problem before, it is a very intermitant problem, is it the pump, not engaging far enough ? due to low pressure

or do I replace the accumulator
