Hi all I own a 2006 RA Rodeo 3.6Ltr petrol dual cab it is a little heavy on fuel that's fine but when you put it into 5 gear it just drinks fuel nearly 1/4 tank to go 15-20 klms. Any ideas greatly app


The only thing that comes to mind is that in 5th, the rpms may be so low that you are running on low speed potion of ignition module, getting weak spark and not burning fuel properly. This could be true in all gears at low rpms, but you would not notice it as much because you probably keep the revs up more in lower gears. Just a thought.

I have a 97 kia sportage with 160,000.miles ,stick shift, ......when shifting from 4th to 5th its hard to get into 5th and ill put in 3rd my mistake...is this a ezay fix ?


Sounds like ther is a selector problem in the gear box. Take off the top, where the gear lever goes in and have a look. if there is anything wrong there the box will have to come out.

Nissan Pulsar N14 Manual Gearstick Rattles


This is common for that transmission, it will eventually lead to 5th gear POPOUT, where it will actually pop itself out of 5th gear... I would get a second opinion to be sure, but looks like a rebuild is near maybe.. :(

My 1991 Saab 900 is shifting perfectly except it will not go into


I've had a similar problem, and it was the rubber bushings in the shifter link; as some particular ones age they get sloppy and 5th gear seems to be the one that suffers. Others will age and disintegrate, then you won't be able to shift at all. If all the other gears are fine (no grinding, judder, popping out of gear or other untoward behaviour) I'd look to these rubber bushings, and replace them all while you're at it. They're replaceable at much less cost than a tranny rebuild, and are most likely that cause, i.e. after rebuilding tranny, you still won't get into 5th because the shifter won't have been rebuilt, just the contents of the gear box!

Check the "Bentley Bible" aka the Saab 900 Official Service Manual, costs about $40 from Amazon, for info, it's an invaluable resource!
