Question about 1995 Eagle Summit

1 Answer

How can i tell what kind of clutch i have?

My mechanic tells me if i have trouble shifting my manual transmission, the clutch is probably going.  if it isn't an "hydraulic" clutch it may be "adjusted" and therefore delay or avoid replacement.  but he says he needs to take it apart to tell if it can be "adjusted".  can't i tell by using the vin # or finding a manual??  thanks for your time and attention to my request!

Your clutch is self adjusting hydraulic design, when the clutch plate gets really worn the adjustment availiable runs out and the trans gets hard to shift, a clutch plate is like a brake shoe, the friction material wears off over time.

I have a 2001 X5 with manual transmission. Can't shift the gears any longer except for reverse. How hard is it to fix that?


Is the clutch working? If not, probably leaking fluid somewhere like the slave or master cylinder. Find and fix. If clutch works normally in reverse, the internal shift mechanism may have jammed. Some of the transmissions can be worked on in car (remove trim, remove top holding shifter in place and try to manually reset shift levers) while others require removal from the vehicle.

I have troubles shifting gears they grind. The clutch pedal is very weak and low but it still spring up a little. What could be wrong?


If a manual clutch , adjust the free play at the clutch fork around 1/8 inch. if hydraulic top up fluid or bleed out air.

When it shift from third gear to second gear it makes an abrupt shift. This problem is only from third to second gear, the other gears shift nice and quiet. The transmission is new only 3 months old.


Hopefully this Transmission is still under warranty?
If its a stick the shifter or schronizers could be the culprit. If the vehicle is an automatic,shift solenoid, shifter, problems in 2nd and 3rd circuitry (band or clutch not releasing properly ),manual shift valve .
Take it back to whom ever did the rebuild or transmission work tell them the problem .
Business is so demanding these days they will probably do the right thing.

96 ford tuarus that has AX4N transmission wont shift out of first gear, how many shift solenoids are in this transmission and how hard are they to change


You may want to change the vehicle speed sensor first. Is your speedometer working? The shift solenoids are inside the side cover of the transmission and it's quite a job to get that cover off, you practically have to take the trans out of the car. Are you getting a "check engine" light there may be a code in the computer that will tell you what is going on. If one of those solenoids fail it should trigger a "check engine" light, the solenoids are usually pretty trouble free as a rule. I'm not sure on that transmission, but I think there are two shift solenoids, but there is also a "torque converter clutch solenoid". Also, if you can get it to a trany shop they can put a scan tool on your car and tell you exactly what's happening. Have you tried manually shifting the car? Pull it down into 1 then manually shift it up, see if it will shift that way.

Transmission question


hi i will try help, well yes it will have adverse results on his gear box if he is putting it in drive and then reverse before the vehicle stops going forward, ile explain, when you engage the gear and drive forward, the centrifugal force is sent to the torque converter This engages reverse gear within the transmission, giving the ability for the vehicle to drive backwards. In order for the driver to select reverse, they must come to a complete stop push the shift lock button in (or pull the shift lever forward in the case of a column shifter) and select reverse. Not coming to a complete stop can cause severe damage to the transmission. Many modern automatic transmissions have a safety mechanism in place, which does to some extent prevent (but does not completely avoid) inadvertently putting the car in reverse when the vehicle is moving forwards. This mechanism usually consists of a solenoid-controlled physical barrier on either side of the Reverse position, which is electronically engaged by a switch on the . Therefore, the brake pedal needs to be depressed in order to allow the selection of reverse. Some electronic transmissions prevent or delay engagement of reverse gear altogether while the car is moving. Some shifters with a shift button allow the driver to freely move the shifter from R to N or D, or simply moving the shifter to N or D without actually depressing the button. However, the driver cannot put back the shifter to R without depressing the shift button to prevent accidental shifting, especially at high speeds, which could damage the transmission.so hope that answers your question and end the feud lol, please vote thanks

I have a 1998 accord 4cyl coupe manual trans. The


A clutch issue youtend to have more of an engagement problem with 1st and reverse gear for a small time period before you notice other gears.You want to check the clutch hydrolic system for any leaks(clutch slave at transmission,clutch master,which you look for leakage on interior above clutch pedal)and at fluid resevoir.you also want to double check condition of trans fluid. strongly recommend using only HONDA BRAND MANUAL TRANS. FLUID when doing maintinance,fluid should be replaced every 30k on this car.The Honda brand fluid is like night and day on these cars,it WILL make a difference in shifting!!TRust Me on this point! Sorry now back to your main clutch issue,when driveing and you go to shift gears and normally notice grinding,with clutch pedal in shft out of gear and before engageing it into next gear do a double pump of clutch pedal then see if when continuing to next gear if it engagees smoother.if so you know you have without a dout a clutch pressure plate/disc problem. I can tell you that in twenty years the only manual transmissions themselves that ever had problems were due to outside influences(gear oil in transmission,improper driveing,etc.)let me know what you find and we can go from there..JOEL

Can I put a manual transmission in an SXT Magnum?


This type of question always comes down to what is practical vs. what is possible. Typically, the way to install a manual transmission into a car with an automatic is to find the same model of car that came from the factory with the manual transmission and then swap over every relevant part. This approach is always fraught with complications. For example, the engine wiring harness, computer, motor mounts, pedal assembly, steering column, and even steering rack may all need to be changed (not to mention the axles, exhaust manifolds, starter, etc.). From what I can tell, the SXT was never offered with a manual transmission, which means that instead of finding parts from another car that already has a manual transmission, you will have to fabricate or adapt everything yourself.

If you are an excellent machinist/metal fabricator and have a lot of spare time and money, then you probably can swap a manual transmission into your car. Even at that, you would probably end up with a car that was never "quite right" in the way it drove after making the swap.

For what it's worth, if you asked a professional mechanic to do the job, he would probably either ask for a blank check or bid the job for 2-5 times what he thought it would actually cost just to discourage you from doing it.
