Problem in 1st gear with manual transmission

Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;} Sometimes, my car bogs down almost to the point of killing the engine when I start in first gear from a dead stop. It tends to be more severe when I have been running the car on the highway for awhile and then hit a stop light/ stop sign in town. I just thought my car was getting old and I had to be easy on engine when starting from a stop. However, my battery was 5 years old and I just replaced it last week. All of a sudden my car wasn’t bogging down at all and it had some power off the line that I hadn’t experienced in awhile, but about two days later it went back to the problems in first gear. I am maybe thinking the alternator isn’t giving the battery a full charge since it wasn’t acting up for a couple days when the battery was new. I don’t know for sure, but if someone knows of some possible solutions I would appreciate it. Thanks.

If the idling of your engine only dies off at first gear, you may have a clutch problem. check first if you have fluid in your clutch fluid reservoir, or if its cable make sure that the cable is pulling the clutch lever for a reasonably long travel. there may be leaks in your clutch master or slave cylinders. If your engine behaves well during neutral. it has to be a clutch problem

1995 1500 4x4 5.7l. Why won't it go into gear?


Could be the TCC solenoid stuck. It is part of the internal wiring harness for the transmission. It will keep the transmission in overdrive. Thus killing the engine. Pull the pan and check for metal floating in the fluid. No metal. Change the 1st and 2nd shift solenoids, EPC solenoid and internal harness.. If there is metal flake. I would pull the valve body and make sure it is clean. Use a pick to make sure the piston move freely. Clean them one at a time. Easy to tear down. Watch the clips, they tend to fly off.

My T45 transmission is stuck in first gear and bogs down when I shift it to reverse


It appears this is a 5 speed manual transmission. There may be shift linkage problems between the shift lever and transmission. also bushings. I strongly recommend a repair manual specificly for this transmission. possibly filespeep.com or manualslib.com
How is the clutch and throwout bearing?

My fz transmission in my 1988 ford f450 made a popping sound and lockd up killing the engine...what caused this to happen..


On your type of transmission the top where the gear shifter sit at is where the solution is at.you will have to pull the rug back take out the gear selector housing once its out, the reverse relector is held by a 3/4 to 11/16 reverse nut it came loose, that relator has interfered with the gears when this happens it basically just goes in reverse

My f350 w/v10 has a serious loss of power from a standstill. The engine will bog down when in forward gear. In reverse, I can spin the duallys. In park or neutral the engine seems to have plenty of hp. ...


You can spin the duallys in reverse because reverse is a MUCH lower gear. NO, there is no kickdown cable for your transmission. Your transmission is controlled electronically.
If the engine is bogging down or if the transmission is trying to start up in the wrong gear, either the check engine light should be on or the O/D OFF light should be flashing. The best course of action in diagnosing a problem with a computer controlled engine and transmission is to scan the computers that control them to check for fault codes.

What you need to check is the transmission release bearing because if there is a clearance on the release bearing you will encounter this problem and also check the transmission oil.
