Gear selection problems.

Hi there. I have a 2007 Freelander 2 2.2 TD4. Mileage 128,00 miles with new clutch at 70,000 miles. Pulls like a train. Changing gear whether it be going up or down from 1st to 4th is intermittently a problem. Selection can be sticky where I have to either pull/push harder to select or double clutch. I reckon one in every ten changes will be a problem. When the engine is really hot on or after a long journey of 20-30 miles upwards it rarely causes problems BUT shorter journeys are. 5th and 6th never a problem. Can anyone shed some light on potentially what my problem is.

Cheers

try oiling the linkage cables, under battery somewhere, get someone to fiddle with gearstick as you look around for them At work

I would initially say that it's a clutch problem. You say that the clutch was replaced at 70k so you have done 58k miles on it so far. Was the DMF and slave cylinder replaced at the same time?

PS Failing that we have had two FL2s with gearbox problems where they wouldn't stay in 5th, one was sold on an the other had a rebuild under extended warranty. However these problems were not intermittent. 3 x FL1 2 manual + 1 auto no real problems
FL2 S 08 reg 100k no problems
FL2 S 10 reg Gearbox, clutch, throttle body, drive shaft, steering reservoir
FL2 GS 60 reg xfer box, diff and wheel bearings
FL2 GS 11 reg gearbox ,hesitation, exhaust sensors, wiper stalk,
FL2 XS 14 reg SD4 Auto , door lock problem @ 29k
