2000 Vauxhall Astra 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Manual 62000 miles
Hi, got a problem with engaging primarily 2nd and reverse gears. It takes a good deal of force to get into second and some tact and double clutching to engage reverse. However after a long journey engaging any gear becomes extremely hard work (requiring an almighty shove on the lever). Following a friends advice I have replaced the gearbox oil and greased the linkages regularly over a period of several weeks. Unfortunately it hasn't worked. I would be very grateful if anyone can advise me about any steps I can take for diagnosing and/or resolving this irritating problem. Many, many thanks in advance.
have the same problem?
