Gears stop working when stuck in traffic 1.2 Fiat palio
Good day, I have a Fiat palio 1.2 2009. I recently changed the clutch kit and my car was just never the same again. The first thing I noticed was the sound I could hear when I move up a steep from 1st gear, sounds like an old wheelbarrow . Then the car shakes a lot when I go over 80km/h. The most disturbing by far is this random thing that would just happen whenever – When I was stuck in traffic my car starts to Rev high, then soon the car won’t go into gear. I have to switch off the car for about 10 min while pumping the clutch. When I’m still stuck in the traffic I have to switch on and off my car cos it won’t stay in 1st gear and its the only way to change gears, it shakes uncontrollably and the slightest lift off the brakes makes the car jump. Once I have rested the car for a few munites it will go back to being fine till the next time when it happens again. I have had this happen about 4-5 times in the past month and a half. I have returned it to the garage so many times and when it’s there, it runs fine and they can’t find any problems. I even asked them to ride it for a week and they just cleaned the engine and gave it back. This is frustrating because it happens to me when I’m so far and alone and so randomly that I cannot say what circumstances causes the revving and gears to stop working. Please help me I can’t live like this!!!
