New member seeks selespeed help...
All my friends warned me about buying an alfa selespeed, so being a stubborn old bugger I bought one...
Driving a few days ago about 80 mile trip each way, it did what I had read about on the internet... it didn't selected neutral as I slowed and I nearly shunted the car in front as it kangaroo hopped towards it... bloody terrifying!
OK, I thought, stay calm, turn off and on, select 1st... er, no it won't go into 1st, or any gear come to that... not great when you now have a huge tailback behind you at major intersection
Eventually it went into gear and catapulted off, at least I made it to my destination
Driving home things got much worse, 1st and 3rd gear dropping out of the equation, getting stuck in 4th
I got home somehow in a nervous sweat
I have checked the selespeed reservoir religiously and topped in accordance with instructions
I am sure you may have encountered similar selespeed problems... any rough prognosis of the problem and what might need to be done... and what that might cost???
I live in Surrey UK close to Kinsgton, so if anybody knows a good selespped wizard that would be really good to hear about
Appreciate your esteemed alfa knowledge
Lovely car when it works, please try and help keep me an alfa fan!
(BTW... I've had the car about 17 months, always serviced by my local alfa independant - Thorobred Cars at Laleham, they do not have enough ss experience to help with this problem - I've had a few jittery selespeed glitches, but nothing like this before)
