Hi! My name is Johan van der Merwe, I'm 31 Years old and I'm driving a 2002 Alfa Romeo 2.0 147 Selespeed.
I'm staying in South Africa in the North West province near the well known Kingdom of Pleasure, better known as Sun City.
As a hobby I do customizing including custom spray painting on vehicles.
My Opel Astra were featured in issue 21 of Speed & Sound magazine.
At the moment I am a plant electrician at one of Xstrata's Chrome mines.
I am married Sarie and have two daughters, Canté (4) and Tasha (1).
I would like to know if there is someone who can assist me with the problem I have with my car at the moment? I can't put my finger on it but I think my clutch is on its way out.
When I engage first and second gear the display "1 or 2" depending on which gear I select is blinking, and sometimes struggles to engage gears.
I adjusted the clutch a little and the problem was gone for about a month before it started again. Today I adjusted it some more but struggled to get it right. The other thing I thought about was that it could be low battery power as from the time I installed my sound system with a 3-Farad cap I hear the alternator belt screams on startup until the cap is charged.
If anyone had a similar problem, I would like to hear from you.
Chat to you soon.
