Selespeed problems and overheating.
Hi, this is my first Alfa Romeo, itīs really nice but itīs driving me nuts about this 2 topics.
First of all, Selespeed... Where do i begin..
From time to time, i get the selespeed warning beep, i canīt shift and have to turn it off like half an hour and it works again, sometimes it does it on the first start in the morning, sometimes during heavy traffic. Selespeed fluid becomes low every now and then, i top it off when itīs needed. I can hear the Selespeed pump priming for like 8-10 seconds when i open the drivers door and as far as i know, it should only prime for 4 seconds (meaning something in the selespeed is leaking). Can anyone help me with this??
Second, overheating issues...
Sometimes, temp gauge climbs really fast and pegs, i quickly turn off the engine and wait for it to cool down, mechanic has checked on it and whenever the car is at the shop, he canīt reproduce the overheating condition, today i discovered fan not kicking in and the meter was almost 120 degrees, i had the heating at full blast to help the engine cool down, i turned the A/C on and ten seconds later the fan started, it was switching between on and off, then all of sudden it stayed on, temp went down really fast and it stayed on, untill i turned the A/C off.
As far as i know, fan should always be on whenever the A/C is working, at least thatīs how it works on all cars iīve owned.
Help me, please!
