vectra sri clutch/gearbox problem
Please does anybody have any ideas
When cold it is virtually impossible to select any gear, as the car warms up - maybe 20/30 miles - it gets better but the gears are still notchy.
The thing that seems to baffle the mechanics is that with the engine off it's perfect, no problem getting into gear.
All the garages that i've been to say they have no idea and they will have to drop the gearbox out to have a look at the clutch before they can do anything (frosts want £300 just to do this).
Please any help gratefull
I would change the oil first, but it also might be the clutch plate sticking on the splines.
Is it a hydraulic operated clutch?
Worn driven plate ?
Slave cylinder faulty ? (It's in the box).
Change the oil too.
