Check that you have oil in the gearbox and that the drive shfts are securely fitted in the box. If all this is ok, then a reconditiond, second hand or new replacement box is the order of the day. Before you buy another box, when the box is off the engine, dismantle the clutch and inspect it. It may be the preasure plate is breaking up. Anyway it is only another ten minutes on the job. If you find wear in the clutch, repace it at the same time as you change the box. Sorry for the bad news.

Fiat stilo abarth 2.4 semi-automatic gearbox what type of clutch fluid is used


The clutch in the Fiat stilo abarth selespeed uses the same fluid as the braking system. Just find the container in the engine bay with the braking fluid. And top up with ''DOT 4 Brake & Clutch Fluid'' Note it's not the oild for the Gearbox or selespeed. You should never touch the container that holds the fluid for the Selespeed.

My Alfa Romeo 156 won't start (Selespeed fault)


Had the same sort of problem with friend's 159 2.4 JTD two weeks ago, was towed to the dealers who fitted a new battery for a lot of money. (said the battery was stuffed) Same thing when his wife was shopping last Sat. Jumped started it and took it home, once started being a diesel it drove until switched off. Wouldn't start or even turn over,checked everything over 2 days, I'm a aircraft mech and he's an electrician. Sunday afternoon I said, Back to basics test for power to the starter solonoid - none,
He said, So the solonoid is stuffed,
I said, Test for earth at the starter,
He said, But the starter earths thru the motor.
I connected a jumper lead from the negative battery terminal onto a bolt on the motor, the motor started and ran straight away. Faulty earth strap. Apoligies from the dealer.
Moral of this story - I've owned 3 and currently own 2 Alfa's and all of them at some stage have had an earth problem.
Hook a direct earth from the battery to the engine.
Maybe this can help Howie.

Alfa's have a Nylon ball with the gear selector (under the gearbox). They wear pretty easily. This could be pretty worn, either that or you're running low on gearbox, or "selespeed" oil. Check them out. They're pretty important and can cause serious problems to the gear box if not looked after.

2004 Renault Trafic 1,9 dci gearbox problem. I have a ratteling sound at the fifth and sixth gear in my 2004 Renault Trafic 1,9 dci, 74 kw engine and manual gearbox, 140.000 km. No sound when the gearbox...


had exactly the same problem with mine, its in my mates garage as we speak. he had to take the engine out open the gear box and check the bearings. All the bearings were worn !!!! had to buy a wole bearing kit, £170 . plus labour, lot cheaper than getting it reconditioned by specialists!!! they wanted £1000 for doing exactly what my mate has done for me. Hope this helps you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Alfa 156 selespeed fault


hi, it sounds like either your clutch needs replacing or the problem could just be that the gearbox needs oil this is best checking as the gearbox can sieze then this will be expensive to replace.
What you need to do is take it into garage and they will remove a plug on the gearbox with special tool then this tells them if the oil is low as some oil should come out of this lug if not then they will top this up for you hopefully solving your problem,
Having no oil in the gearbox could strip the gears and if its got to bad then these will need replacing but this is in the most severe of cases so hopefully your problem is just that the oil needs filling up so get this done and this will hopefully solve your problem.
If you have any problem then give me a shout or if you have any questions then give me a shout then ill be glad to assist you further.
