Question about Fiat Cars & Trucks
I have the red warning light come on and can not select any gears. I would like to be able to drive the car to the local Fiat garage is there a simple way of allowing the gears to work for this journey?

In all these cases it appear to be a problem with the synchronizers or a dented pinion. To verify, the oil can be check for metal deposits. Fiats have bronze synchronizers and when placed under heavy shifting load they were out rapidly. if this is the case replacement is the solution and transmission has to be open. The car can be driven but gear will keep releasing. Sometimes the synchronizer level bends causing an incomplete setting off the gear.

If two different mechanics, including a fiat dealer, already put their hands on your car, there is not much that I can say.
This kind of noise are often caused by bad rotor discs or locking up brake pads, I assume that this had been previously checked and fixed .
about the steering rack problem, when the steering rack has troubles the noise is from the steering rack itself and from the front of the car, if you are sure the noise is from wheel check brakes, or, if the noise does not cohincide with braking, check the wheel bearings.
See here on common brake noises, cause and identifying them.
about "fiat would not allow any more work on this problem", that sounds a bit like rubbish, call Fiat in your country (put Fiat in google, then find support/ contact), and ask them about their policies. I do not think from description this has got to do with steering, unless you get the noise only when steering, nyou usually get also vibrations on steering wheel in this case.
If this had been useful do not forget to rate the solution appropriately.

Getting into reverse and 5th gear can be difficult if the "lollipop" flexible link is seperating a quick fix if this is the problem is to drill through in the centre and place a nut and bolt through and tighten up

<grin> I don't know why or how this ended up under the category of Fiat 2006 X1/9 - I'd like to have one but I think I will have to be satisfied with my '87 Bertone instead-
I would highly recommend you have a shop replace the sensor (very soon!) with a pressure gauge to measure the pressure directly to make certain you aren't dealing with a failed or obstructed oil pump. This will only take a few minutes and shouldn't cost much. If your engine isn't clattering, I suspect the replacement sensor isn't any good either.
