Re: GTV 3.0 Clutch
Sorry saga from an Alfa franchise, what next???!!!
Clutch plates don't fail in that manner, no matter what approach the driver takes with his feet, or hands, or teeth or where his brains are. Did you get to see the parts? I can hardly think of a way to cause that to happen without shredding the entire drive train!
The point about the grade of oil is very pertinent. As far as I know the gtv gearshift is pretty good. Not like the 147 effort which is deeeezmal and seizes with monotonous regularity.
I suppose they put the right clutch in!? That's probably completely off the wall but there are several and it may be possible to mix them up. I'd also be checking the slave cylinder and changing the fluid, it's 95% certainly filthy by now.
Oh and certainly there is a difference hot to cold but if you;ve had the car any length of time you'll recognise that. I've always wondered why it seems to affect first gear worst?
Doesn't say that in the manual
