My Subaru Sambar broke down two months ago after overheating. Finally got all that sorted then couldn't find fourth gear. I have absolutely no mechanical knowledge but I believe it could be something to do with a solenoid. The garage which fixed it has tried everything, including replacing the brushes and the gearbox oil but to no avail. It still drives fine and doesn't seem to be a problem in third gear although I'm keeping it below 4000rpm which is a bit difficult going up hills but I'm just going slowly!
Is it likely to cause any damage only going up to third?
Thanks for any advice.
