After checking the easy stuff first like low oil level, if it is high RPM(revs) & shifts hard(lurch when it does shift) then I am thinking the transmission filter & oil need to be changed. The transmission filter acts as a suction screen on an automatic transmission & as it collects contaminants to protect the inner workings of the transmission, it becomes plugged which greatly affects the ability to shift especially the high gears at faster acceleration.
If the clutch is a problem you will have difficulty selecting 1st only as the gears would be spinning from the engine revs.. I would say that the front input shaft (clutch shaft) bearing is failing allowing miss alignment of the synchros and not allowing proper engagement of the gears synchro rings. It means removal and repair to the gear box so the clutch can be inspected while the box is out.
hi, i would like to warn u that i had this issue with the same car, eventually the gear box stopped going above 2nd gear ,would not change up even in semi manual,i was told i needed new gear box,had a recon box fitted, but now the garage says i need a new computer cause it not communicating with the gear box properly,cost so far 1200 pound + what ever computer cost, fingers crossed this works
Hello You will need to have an experienced technical drive this before attempting any repairs, but my gut feeling is that you will need to rebuilt the transmission. That takes many special tools and a high degree of skill and training and is not something that really can be done at home with common hand tools.
It sounds like clogged ports that allow fluid to go through. Reverse will most always work even when the entire tranny goes since it is it's own separate system. Try a flush, I don't normally advise that but it sounds like the way to go but I'm guessing a new tranny is in the very near future. Did you keep up on the fluid changes? Because those trannys in those mazdas usually go for a good 300k if kept up with maintenance.
