I seem to have broken something on my car - again
It's a 155 2.0 16v sportpack
I thought the gearbox mount may have gone because of a nocking from underneath the car, so was going to get it looked at.
However, in the last day or two the box (I assume) has started making a nasty whining sound (a bit like Clarckson's black 75 on the top gear alfa challenge).
I've just taken it for a spin to see if I can work out what's wrong and something has seriously broken! It got really noisy, then 4th disappeared, and it then starting lurching forward and clunking badly with any kind of throttle, and then made a REALLY nasty noise and needed abandoning!
Is that the gearbox totally fekked do you think? Sounds like it!
I guess it could also sound / feel like a broken drive shaft, but would that have made the whining sound?
The only other thing I can think to mention is that before this happened, reverse was difficult to engage. then reverse became easy to locate with no graunching, but 4th disappeared!
It's lucky I love Alfas, cos I have two and they're both broken
