I am querying the community here to see if others have experienced the occasional problem that I am having ...
I have 2004 360 Modena with F1 transmission. Stock TCU / ECU. About 19,000 miles.
Occasionally, I experience situations when idling in neutral (e.g., stoplight), I flick the upshift paddle to select first gear ... and nada ... it remains in neutral. I make sure that my foot is firmly on the brake pedal. I release the brake pedal and re-apply again, flick the paddle ... sometimes that works, sometimes not. Would then try to select reverse, try first again, release / reapply the brake. Eventually, (not a long time) I am able to select first gear and off I go. Can be embarrassing when the Honda Civic behind me is blowing his horn (probably thinking what a ****** bag in his Ferrari)
I have verified that the F1 transmission reservoir is at the correct level, my clutch has been checked and there is indication on the SD2 that I have plenty of clutch left. The PIS level has been checked. My technician cannot duplicate the problem. He plugs in the SD2 and cannot see anything to indicate why this may occur. Using the SD2, he cycles through all the gears ... of course shifting just fine. I am sure he thinks I am mad. And, because this condition is only occasional, I cannot duplicate the symptoms on command.
Has anyone experienced similar symptoms? Does anyone have a suggestion on what I might pursue to ameliorate this? I have some concern that at some point it may become more frequent and, worse, I will be stranded somewhere with no way to get the car in gear.
