Sounds like you need a new gear box or you can get your old one reconditioned at a gearbox specialist. i think your ploblem occourd because you may of had no gearbox oil inside the gearbox

i know these have a common problem with the spindles from the gearbox locating into flyheel for corroding badly and seizing up sounds if you need new spindle to solve this problem also think you are catching it a early stage suggest getting this looked at.

SOURCE: 1998 automatic fiat punto

another factor that could affect your problem is the hydrolic fluid. there is a valve body inside the gearbox which controlls the gears. so lets say the vavle that controlls first gear dont open then the hydrolic fluid wont activate first gear. i think when u revv the engine it is increasing the hydrolic pressure which is aiding the vavle to open. the problem could be in the valve controll modual.

Fiat grande punto gear box problem


I found this on Honest Johns website:
One of the gearsets has slipped slightly down one of the rods. Requires dismantling of the gearbox to fix it, which is expensive, so try to live with it or offload the car.

(Personally, I think offloading a dodgy car is NOT an answer, unless you fess up at the time of sale!)
I would ask the dealer for an estimate, based on the above. Assuming it to be the case!

Punto elx clutch pedal is clunking and vibrating when i drive away


You should replace the clutch kit !
The clutch disc is out of order because the pedal is clunking and vibrating. Probably also it shudders & smells of burning.
There is the risk of the car stopping on the road !

I got a mk1 fiat punto sporting and its stuck in gear


if it is an automatic, it means your brake to shift sensor went bad, it is located under the shifter, you have to remove the panel around the shifter to access it.

If it is a manual transmission, then you have some kind of problem with your clutch.
