Sounds like to me your clutch is on th way out , try starting your car from cold and put it in second then try and pull off , or when u r driving about 35 mph put in 4th and put ur foot down on gas if it revs but dont go anywhere , when its cold it is taking the strain of the flywheel but as it heats up its starting to slip , u could try adjusting the clutch cable but sounds like u need a new clutch, but always take it 2 a trusted garage and tell them the symptoms and not what u think it is ,let them find the solution hope that helps daz

Hyundai 2013 I30 gearbox 'SKLITCH' between 5th and 6th gear


It sounds like BS to me but what do I know. I'm only in this business for 40 years. What they did was put heavy oil in the gear box to try to mask the sound. That's why it is difficult to shift (stiff).

Alway ask for the old parts when a replacement is not visible after repairs!

Rear differential problems


Thing here is that when you do change a gear in a resr diff, you need to adjust the pinion gear(this is called in mecanic's word pre-load of your pinion gear)first witch is achievable by inserting shim washers and tightennig the pinion gear bolt.

Then and only then you can adjust the backlash off your diff (witch is the distance between the pinion gear and the driven gear of your diff.).

failling to do so will either cause damage to your new driven gear or as you are aving problems here not being able to turn the diff cause the backlash doesn't have enought clearance.

Hope this will help you!!

Our new Forester Diesel is ok But has no power at low revs when pulling away from standstil or moving slowly in 2nd and 3rd gears. Also main issue with this vehicle is the very slow and tractor like gear...


The forester diesel 6spd gear box is designed to replace the high low gear box so although starting off in second or third gear is possible .... puts a lot of strain on compents ie clutch/ gear box . very slow manuovering is much better carried out in 1st gear , as is moving from stationary . The engine torque is low dow the rev range high max idle is reached very quickly . The diesel engine characteristics are different to the petrol version ( I own 2.5 forester 2009 - 7.8l per km's @55000 km's). So you need to change your driving style to suit . I have test driven the 2.0l Diesel and sufficiently impressed to replace the 2009 version with the diesel .

Crunching Gears


thats common for the reverse gear to grind if you go right for it i always go to fist then reverse. it sounds like you might have a week slave cylinder and the pressure is to low to go into a high gear does this happen in 5 th also or only 3 rd?

Automatic Transmission Rough Shifting


From the sounds of it you need to have your transmission rebuilt, there is no quick fix for a fault in one gear. As far as the tapping noise goes quite often a oil change is all that is required to cure it.
