A month ago i bought my first Alfa, 156 selespeed. I think the car is brilliant to drive but i have started having problems with the gear box in particular 4th gear. When i changed from 3rd to 4th and from 5th to 4th it was make a loud noise. Took it back to the garage where i got it from (cowboys).
They told me that the 4th gear would need to be replaced. 3 weeks later it still wasn't fixed and they told me that they were replacing the full box and would take a further week.
Well finally i got it back and it was driving like a dream until i was driving onto the motorway tried changing into 4th gear. It went in but as soon as it went over 3,000 revs it popped out and i had no power in 4th and had to make a quick change to 5th. What didn't help is that i almost lost the back of the car to a lorry!!
Does anyone have any ideas what this problem could be? I have asked the garage but they don't seem to know.
Thanks for taking the time to read my essay!!
