Alfa GT JTD 2005 Difficult selecting 5th and 6th
I have an intermittent problem with the gear selection on my 2005 GT JTD...
About a year back, my GT gearbox was difficult to move from left to right. Then as mysteriously as it happened I found it rectified itself.
Recently though I find it is often impossible to get 5th or 6th gears. Some days it will go in, others it won't. If it does work in 5th, I often find it takes a bit of a pull to get it in 6th.
Often on dual carriageways I try to change from 4th to 5th only to find I'm back in 3rd again... (very embarrasing) it doesn't seem to be allowing the lever to go far enough over to the right.
I work from home and do not use the car everyday.
Some days it will go into 5th and 6th and then after parking up for a bit it won't allow me to select these gears. Other days it will not allow me to select 5th and 6th and then after parking up and using it again later, it will allow me to select 5th and 6th!
It is driving me nuts!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I have read Kalvin's excellent step by step guide about fixing stiff gearbox, thinking that this may answer my problem.
I am up to armpits in work and have told my local garage mechanic that I will look it up on the forum to see if there is a quick and easy solution?
Anyone experienced this before?
