I believe the gear change linkage is controlled by cables which are prone to siezing up.
I'm sure someone who knows the score will correct me if i'm wrong, or offer an alternative solution.

I've not got a GP YET.., but yes alot of the modern'ish FIAT's have cable gear linkege arrangements,
partially seized cables can make changing awkward,
and I suppose could also make it jump back out ( de-select itself) if there is sticky tension in the cable ( just engaged then the tension pulls it back out),

give it a lube and let us know what you find,
Charlie
