Newbie in NZ needs help
Bought a 2004 147 selespeed twinspark. Am experiencing problems with the selespeed.
Was having problems while driving the gear number on display would flash and selespeed error would display. Experienced major issue when car wouldn't change gears normally only letting me change from 4th to 2nd and back again. Car completely died and wouldnt start, with only the N light flashing on display.
Took my car to alfa garage who said and i quote:
"Checked for stored faults with diagnostic computer, found the Selespeed pressure dropping below 45 BAR. Advised first thing to replace is the accumulator sphere . Replaced the sphere and carried out the end of line calibration. Road tested with diag computer connected and found pressure is holding well at this time"
Am now experiencing further issues:
1st issue: When starting car am unable to select 1st or Reverse. Doesn't happen all the time normally when car is first started in the morning, but not always the case.
2nd Issue: While driving car gets stuck in gear, have had it stick in 2nd and also 5th.
3rd issue: when starting in morning car jerks like a learner driver on a cold morning.
Am reluctant to take back to garage as it is 4hr drive away and feel they will just replace something that may or may not fix the issue.
Would greatly appreciate any help/advice
