Hi everyone. I have a Golf Plus diesel. 58 plate 1.9
The last couple of months, I've had a problem in that it feels like the clutch is slipping occasionally, mostly in 6th. A couple of days ago, driving along, the car suddenly lost impetus, the gear lights were flashing, and it wouldn't select a gear. I switched it right off, pulled out the key, waited for 5 minutes, started it again, and it's been fine ever since. Of course now I don't feel as if I can trust the car.
I had a similar problem a few years ago on a fiat. Was told I needed a new gearbox, until I asked on a forum like this, and was told it was a simple fix, which was done, and it worked.
Is there anyone who can give me some advice about this please? I can't afford a new car, nor a new gearbox!
Thanks in advance
