If we are talking about a manuel transmission, then what you are describing are bad syncros in the transmission. Syncros are brass rings inside the transmission that hold your gears in the proper selected range. when worn they allow your selected gear to pop out.

Has anyone change the transmission fluid and used anything other than Honda ATF-Z1. If so, have the fluid/filter changed in this car and use only Honda Fluid. This is the only fluid that you can use in a Honda. Even if you have used the correct fluid an fluid/filter change may help. If that is not the case then I suggest you seek out a trusted professional.

SOURCE: car will not shift into first or second

Check the cables on the shifter. Maybe it is kinked or needs adjusted.

I had new clutch fitted 3 weeks ago now the gear stick has gone loose and I only have 3rd and 4th gear


Sounds like one of the rods between the gear lever and gearbox has become detached. One rod transmits the forward-backward motion, the other left - right, with the "natural" bias keeping the lever in the 3rd / 4th gear plane - hence why you've only got 3rd and 4th gear.

You should have some guarantee from the company that fitted the clutch so contact them to sort it out.

The trans grinds when you put it into 3rd and pops out of 4th


I had a car that used to jump out of 3rd gear... it turned out to be a worn bearing in the gearbox. I'd expect something similar to be causing your problem...hope this helps.

1999 a4 2.4 auto uk model gearbox fault


After a jump start because of no electrical power, the car will run rough for several days (expected) while it adjusts to your driving habits. I'm not sure about the gears, but I'd try to drive with it like that for a few days and see if it returns to normal.
