Check the engine stabilser bar, its on the drivers side by the
clutch master cylinder.

If you want to fit a central oil pick up you need to strip the gearbox to do it. But well worth it. No more loss of oil pressure going round corners

does this happen in all geas or just the one?

jumping out of gear usually means a worn gear, basically the teeth on a spcific gear are worn down and need replacing. :sad:

the chances are its in second, the most commonly worn gear. if so u will be looking at a new gear, or usually easier jsut bolt a re-con box on from a show, usually around £150-£200.

as for a centeral oil pickup pipe, id say its a must if u drive round right hand corners or roundabouts fast! again means taking ur gearbox off, but isnt the worst job in the world to do

Unles you have a centre pick up don't fit A032s and an Oil pressure gauge.

Its scary watching the ol pressure drop on corners!!!!!!
