Hi SonOfAnarchy ZA, if a gear box gives trouble only when cold, or only when hot, it would be worth checking the oil as the oil changes as things warm up/cool down. You say the gear box oil has already been changed, but was it the correct oil and why was it changed anyway?


The correct gear box oil is this Total BV 75W80



Other problems with selecting gears are problems with the hydraulic clutch system, gear selectors worn and the clutch return spring.
