Salespeed skipping 3rd!!
Hi everyone, I know this is a fairly common issue with the Salespeed gearbox, and I'm sure there are hundreds of threads relating to it. But I've read a lot and the symptoms with my gearbox are slightly different to others and all the threads I've read never end with a solution to the problem. So I really hope someone can help me :-)
So my Alfa 147 2.0 Salespeed works great when the engine is cold, but after a while, maybe 30-45 mins, it develops a fault with the gearing. It will change from 1st - 2nd gear, but will not change from 2nd - 3rd. Instead will either select Neutral (and obviously disengage drive) or skip to 4th or 5th gear (usually 5th). But changing down gears is fine.
I have not had a garage look at it yet, I live in a rural part of New Zealand and feel that local garages may not be so clued up with Alfas, so thought this was my best bet :-). I just wanted to see if anyone had had this issue and had it resolved, as mentioned I have yet to find a thread which resulted in the issue being solved.
PLEASE HELP :-)
