Help New member and a bunny hopping 156 Selespeed!!

well hello to all
so i decide to join up the forum at last after being an alfa fan since i had an alfasud sprint in 1980.... (sad story to that, which involves rust and a 4 year old car being scrapped since the engine mountings corroded and basically the car fell apart...) but the good memories are golden....

I currently have an 8 yo 156 2.0 TS selespeed......and so this car has now started to hop and jerk in 1st and reverse, only, (fine in high gears) and since it might be the gearbox, I dont know if i can continue to afford Alfa ownership.....so maybe my joining is either a bit premature or too late!!!!

Anybody got any ideas on whether my problem can be simple? if its a gearbox anybody want an 8yo alfa for parts!!!!!
I checked selespeed fluid level, and been thru all the threads i can find on the site for inspiration but not located- yet- same problem as mine..... any ideas gratefully received

Oh finally, any suggestions for good (also reasonable costing) alfa garages in near Rochester in Kent... seen bad words about SDR and good words about Medway autos but since they are main dealers I expect they will charge same as all the other main dealers I have been supporting for many years of my life now....

Anyway nice to be on board, hope its for a long while yet!!

Re: New member and a bunny hopping 156 Selespeed!!

Took the liberty of looking in the Tech lounge, but didn't see your post yet?: Anyway, another liberty, as DavidC and Rarebear, and in the past Ben B have said I believe, get it in to an Indie or someone, for a re-calibration on Examiner, first and foremost.: I let ours idle for a while and then she is fine, but I really ought to do likewise sometime.:
