I would highly recomend against just ANY auto transmission fluid for a selespeed Alfa.
These cars are highly sensitive to which oil you put in them. Many many owners have put in what they thought were similar oils into with their engine or gearbox only to have them fail prematurely. I have two 156's from new and they are still like new, I believe in part due to using only the factory recommended oils. I'm not a chemical engineer so I have no idea why it makes a difference but it does.

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.

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.
