Qtronic Transmission Oil Changed in 159 2.4jtdm and issues
we live in Australia and had the gearbox oil changed at one of the Alfa's dealers in Brisbane (btw after a long conversation and answering questions why we wanted to have it changed). FYI - the other dealer advised they could not even see the gearbox (what a load of bull****!)
We were told the oil should last for the whole life of the gearbox.. so the previous owners did not have it changed at all - of course. Now, when the car has about 163,000 km, we had it done.
The trouble is that our gearbox has been acting funny, especially when changing gears from 4 to 3 and/or 3 to 2. We would describe it as a "bang" in the transmission - nothing else. Even after the oil change, it still does the same thing.
Do you have any ideas what it could be? it does not slip - you can just feel it has difficulty to jump to the lower gear..and then the "bang".
thanks so much for your advice!
