Madness 156 Gear changing issue!

Hi all,

I joined the Alfa club about a month ago when i bought a 1999 156 selespeed.

Since then its been a disaster!

2 weeks ago i was trying to get the car into 1st gear and i could click it in via the gear shifter or the steering wheel buttons! therefore i couldnt go anywhere. 30 minutes i was trying and i finally got it into first gear! then it wouldnt go to 2nd, so i hit city mode and left it there for the drive home!

The dealer i bought it off sent it to a transmition place and they changed some pump in the transmition?????? it worked ok for 48 hours and now i cant get it into gear again!

help?? hwat could be the problem?

Re: 156 Gear changing issue!

Sounds like they changed the Selespeed pump, Have you checked the oil in the selespeed bottle, make sure it's not in need of some. Must be checked weekly

Have the battery checked. The system needs a strong fully charged battery to work properly

For more help do a search in this section, loads of similar problems and fixes

Hope you get he sorted
