This is a follow on from a previous thread
I had on here. 2 months later and I've finally gotten a chance to have a look at this again (I don't live where I keep the car so it's difficult to get time!).
Just to give a quick summary of the problem:
- Initially had a problem starting the car after a time spent idle - resolved by replacing the plugs
- When I moved the car, I was able to reverse out of the shed no problem but when I put it in 4 / 3 / 2, it won't move or even rev. Foot flat on the accelerator and nothing. When I rev it in neutral, it revs ok and if I put it quickly from neutral into drive, it moves forward a little and then dies.
- Presumable a gearbox problem then?
So I got under the car and the linkages are moving fine and are in reasonable condition. When the gearstick moves, it all moves smoothly and seems to be okay externally.
On the basis of that, does it sound like there's something amiss internal to the gearbox? Is it possible to open up the gearbox from below or is this something best left to a pro?
Thanks in advance
