On sat morn i opened my door(2002 147) and i heard the selespeed pump making a more than usual high pitch sound(sucking air). i opened the selespeed oil bottle to find that it was empty.
i topped it up and started the car, i then got a selespeed faliure warning, i tried to cycle through the gears with the engine off and it selected all the gears so i was happy about that.....
Went for drive and the error kept coming up ever 10 seconds or so beeping and carrying on.
The gears change fine most of the time but sometimes it drops into N.
the most annoying thing is the beeping though.
I opened the bleed valve and ran the pump, only oil came out of the system, no air that i could see.
I think there is/was air in the system but i cant seem to get rid of the error and annoying beeps, it seems the system is picking the error up each time the pump trys to keep the pressure up(error goes and returns constantly).
The car still drops into N every now and then.
Can anyone help me pls.
I just want to know if the error has to be cleared for it to go away and if the examiner is needed to truely bleed the system.
Really worried cause when i phoned my dealer he said it sounds like the acctuator has gone/ water in it, which highly doubt cause it all started when the system sucked air.
Do the symptoms sound like air in the system ?
