Hi fellow Alfa Owners.
After many years of happy pain free motoring my selespeed has decided to not work properly. It's a 147 2.0ltr selespeed (52 plate). Last night I got stranded in the middle of a roundabout
after it suddenly dropped into N whilst in motion and wouldn't enage into gear.
Fortunately a fellow motorist helped me push the car onto the side of the road and the diagnostics began. Turned on/off but still would not engage into 1st, but would go into reverse no probs? You can hear the usual noise everytime you open the door etc...
Eventually after 30 mins I got out of the car, locked it then unlocked it and tried again. It did engage into 1st but then immediately started flashing between 1/3/4/2/4/3/1/2/4/3/2 (you get the picture). I managed to get it going after a jurky start and it went into 5th quite quickly but it felt more like 3rd. I had to brake ride round bends and roundabouts to prevent it from dis-engaging and finally got home. Tried it again this morning and it will only go into reverse.
Throughout all of this I have not seen any warning lights, but my petrol tank went from 1/2 full to empty in the space of 10/15 mins on idle, is this connected?
Somebody please help me, I don't want to get raped by the local dealer (or indie for that matter) as I am skint!
Any help/advise welcomed.
Thank you so much.
