Question about 2000 Toyota ECHO

2000 Toyota Clutch replacement

When shifting gears, I have a grinding noise, first it started with reverse, then going from 4th to 5th, it is also hard shifting; had taken to Dealer & was told it was due to my winter mats and the clutch couldn't engage but with all mats out, still have the trouble-had it for sometime. Some people state there is an adjustment for the clutch, butr Toyota states "no". other people state to bleed the line, but it's never been open to allow the air. We are now thinking of replacing the clutch, I have someone that works on older Toyotas but never on an Echo, Wondering if anyone has a solution or can advise on the procedure replacing the clutch. I have approx 180,000km and the car was bought new.-------db

Whenever you have additional floor mats in the vehicle, the clutch pedal does not go to the floor. This, in turn, prevents the clutch release mechanism from releasing the clutch disc fully from the flywheel. This causes premature clutch disc wear. I would agree that you need a clutch replacement.
The replacement is pretty straight forward, as long as your guy has the ability to support & hold the engine assembly while the transmission is removed.
No big mysteries on the clutch replacement.

1996 Ford Ranger xlt manual transmission can"t shift into 3rd and 4th gear


If it grinds when trying to shift, it is the synchronizers. Rebuild. If it pops out of gear. there is a plastic part at the top of the transmission that wears out. It fits around the ball of the shifter. It is two pieces. You'll have to remove the floor plate and pull it up to access the bolts to remove the shifter and replace those plastic pieces.

5th gear synchronizer shifter


sound to me like a basic sloppy shifter, did you inspect the shifter and all parts associated?
usually the synco dont stop shifts, only causes grinding
unless, it is shattered. (rare that)
it only matches speeds, so if cracked in half , you can shift by
double shifting , like racers and truckers did for years, "crash boxes"

Just recently changed my clutch in my 1995 geo metro. it was working fine. car was tuned up before my long road trip from orlando to nyc. until when i reached sometime in NC, and 4th gear will not...


the shift linkage may need to be adjusted a bit or the shift forks and engaged gears for 4th and 5th may have worn enough that they need to be inspected and fixed.

My 2004 mustang is shifting hard into rev. and 5th sometimes it seems to not go into n. what could the problem


your tranny synchronizing bearings are going out most likely. usually it starts getting hard going into reverse then sometimes into fifth and grinds as it gets worse. something to help with it will be when you first start the car just put the car in 5th gear before you go into reverse that allowsyour bearing to align and ussually allows it to go in more freely.

Won't go into gear to drive. may be transmission?


If the clutch has never been changed most likely it is that. The way you can check it is by removing the transmission and looking at the clutch disc. It could be transmission syncros but I am willing to bet you just need a new clutch.
