assistance with gearbox leak (156 selespeed)
i have a 2002 156 selespeed with a gearbox oil leak
a few months ago the car started dropping into neutral and flashing the red gearbox sign. i looked up reasons for that and figured it was low so i took in and had the oil and gearbox oil changed. problem solved (at the time)
about 2 months after that (march) the issue came back. i noticed a leak around the front passenger side, but a friend found it to be the radiator. we replaced that, but the leak didnt go away. i took it into an alfa repair office and they said that the gearbox oil was leaking. they said i should just replace the parts related to the gearbox, which wouldve come out to (their guesstimate) ~1200 pounds. they refilled the gearbox oil and sent me on my way.
ive looked over the forums and diagnosing / resolving this is beyond me so im wondering if i could find someone to help me out. id be willing to drive the car to you and of course pay you. i live in bury st edmunds.
what im hoping for is that we could narrow it down to something cheaper...
before posting this, i tried using the 'contact us' page to find exactly which forum section would be appropriate, but i never saw a message come back. this one makes the most sense to me though.
