Gear trouble Alfa GT 2.0 JTS 2004
Hi, I recently brought an Alfa GT and its been driving fine. However today I did my first long journey (150 miles) and when I had to stop at some traffic lights, when the lights went green I could not shift the gear leaver into gear, it felt like something was blocking it. I tried in 2nd then 3rd, I switched off the engine and restarted still did not work. In the end the end I got the revs up and pulled away in 4th quickly then being able to shift into 3rd. SInce then the car was able to go into gear.
I only had her serviced yesterday although they did not reset the service counter.
Does anyone have any idea what it could be, is this a common problem any suggestions how to fix or avoid this issue.
If anyone could give me some advise it would be greatly appreciated.
