Goes into gear but won't move more than 2 inch

This tracker been running good for 8 years no problems until this morning. Goes into gear but only moves a few inches each way, like something under tires. Clutch seems to be engaging since it moves but than locks forward or back. Ebreak seems to be working.

    Same thing in neutral.

    The problem was! the rear axle seals blue out, the grease from the seal got on the break drums. Either the cold weather or the heat from the brake shoes fused the brake shoes to the drum.

    Well, I don't have the bill, but wife brought it in yesterday to the mechanic for check up. Had no problems prior to this. He replaced head gasket, and rear differential seals, I think. Drove home okay, but this morning I had the same problem as you. Stuck, seemed locked would not roll in neutral. In 4WD it seemed okay, drove it around the parking lot but felt resistance. Wish I could be more specific, but wanted to get a jump on this.



    Thanks,

I have a 1989 chevy geo tracker and ive had to replace the clutch and ive had nothing but problems with it not going into gear and now im told that it needs a new clutch arm and im told they dont carr


this is one of the most common failures , on track-kicks.
the cause is easy:
not replacing the cable at 100k or lubing it every 30k.
the acid test (created by me) is the 1 inch rule.
if the bell arm moves 1 inch (zero play) and the clutch fails to disengage then the clutch is bad.
if it does not move 1inch the cable system is bad.
easy huh?
see the full sad stories here. and cures. (suzuki stills sells the parts for a little while longer.. they are Chapter 11 here)

i have all P/N , for parts at the suz dealer, for this. ask.

Isuzu trooper gearbox problems


You need to be a bit more specific when describing your problem. By "not getting any gears" do you mean (A) the shift lever will not move into position to select a gear?, or (B) shifts into gear position, but does not move? For (A), try reverse (it is not synchronized); Do you get a grinding of gears sound when you try to engage it? If so, this sounds like a problem with the hydraulic clutch release system. If it gets low on fluid, it will not release enough to let you put it in gear. top off the reservoir(tiny 1/2 cup sized one on driver side fender under hood below and to the right of the brake master cylinder) and frantically pump the clutch pedal about 100 times (that\'s right, 100!)
If the tranny goes into gear but the vehicle won\'t move, this sounds like either the clutch disc is worn too thin to grab, or something is broken in the driveline. Try locking the hubs and putting it into 4WD and see if it moves then. If so, then the rear wheel driveline or driveshaft has a problem. Good luck!

Clutch cable geo tracker


don't want to shift? fills a huge basket ,
1: grinds?
2: can't get in to some gears.? or all gears.? (engine running and not)?
3: clutch drags, clutch slips kills all gears, or just 5th.
drag kills them all and reverse 1st , its the canary gear. !! non synchro
4: noise.? or chatter, ****,larchig, or throwout hash ,?

here is the clutch page, link below.

the #1 failure for a gear not Selecting is a $5 fix.
the tip of the shifter shaft, plastic POS is broken, bar none this failure,#1 and sold only at SUZ, get em' while you can they are chapter 11 ANDGM/GEO is brain dead , ask them , and you get blank stares.

this can be proven, by selecting the gears by hand. running.
if failure, cant move those fork rods?
running? only
if you cant, the clutch is dragging. see why?
works stalled means the clutch drags.
can you shift to 1st stalled, start engine drive off can you get any gear? yes,if yes , constantly? with no grinding, the clutch is ok.

to do that manual shifter off test test the shifter must be removed.



the we get to the cable.
see the 1inch rule here, no guessing.
play set to spec, and you floor the pedal , person 2 sees 1 inch travel, (END new cable worry)
if it moves 1inch and the tranny can not be SELECTED.
the clutch is bad, if you can select only stalled motor.
if selection fails all time, stalled and running, the tranny is siezed.
covers every fail logged by 1000s of users

Horn doesn't work, revrese lights won't come on, and 2 of the 3 break lights won't come on on 1995 Geo Tracker. Fuses are good and bulbs are good.


for how long, 1 day, 1 year , 1 decade? is it a daily driver
or a barn stored, winter car.?

the real question,is there 12v exiting the fuse, the acid test. that.
any volt meter does that in 5min flat.
3rd brake light is bad bulb or corroded socket.
what tranny< 3,4,5,sp.? but in each case it takes a good rev.
switch, if 12v enters said switch and does not exit, its bad.
0v bad,6v rev. path shorted to ground,12v good.
btw, all clamps can short, try 1 new one. in each path all by lonesome. dig?
bulbs good means what.
1: look good.
2: glow when placed on a 12v battery
3:measure 0 ohms with meter (means good or shorted.
4: or they are new and assumed good, (p/n ? what is the p/n?)
'
head lamps good.? parking lamps, blinker, are all other lamps working. does car start?

Toyota Vista SV50 model / year 1999: I have used Dextron type 2 automatic fluid in the auto transmission. Could this be the problem for auto gears sticking in same gear too long when car is started in...


Hi, since you use a dextron type 2 automatic fluid then it is not cause of the sticking gear. Rather it should be as a result of a clogged transmission filter. A clogged transmission filtercan cause problems with changing gears because it will not allow the fluid to pass through the valve body or valve solenoids at the proper pressure. Without pressure, the plates won't move properly and you won't be able to easily change gears. This can be symptomatic either by itself or along with burnt or worn out transmission fluid, and both should generally be replaced at the same time, rather than just replacing one or the other.

5 speed manual transmission wont stay in 5th gear ,


can be lots of things,,, 4wd or 2wd, must i guess that?

let me guess, easy, and cheap first. ok? no need to go hog wild on guessing, at your expense ,no?>



  1. all vitara/tracker/sidekicks, all have the 2 plastic fittings in the shift box, go, well, to dust, or crack, and then the shift lever bounces and goes out of gear or in fact was never fully in 5th gear, detents.


  2. loose bottom rear transmission mount, (beat to death)


  3. shift rails failing, (detent failure (springs and balls)


  4. burned up fork on 5th gear, due to running trans dry. or near or GL4 fluild looks like, tar and metal filings ; ever consider do ing the service on that, drain and fill, running it on 24year old gear lube?


  5. the 2 front rubber plugs love to fall out (glued in) and then GL4 slowly is lost and gears/bearings and forks are wrecked.


  6. bad 5th gear bearing, rear.


  7. bad 5th gear front bearing. if flops about, and jumps out of gear.


  8. 5th gear synchro ring, broken, causing ill fitting 5th gear DOGS








bearing 30 and 31 are the 2 bearings mention above.

the last guy with 5th failing gear 35 , spins were wrecked.

running trans near dry,. expensive fix. with new cluster 26



see plastic 27 below.

that page even shows how to run and shift trans with extension housing off, to prove the box is good or bad, such a deal , no ?

Backfiring


The backfiring on deceleration is typically associated with a loose timing chain.

If you put a wrench on the harmonic balancer bolt, turn the balancer gently until you feel the chain tighten, then rotate the opposite way until it tightens, how far does is move.
If it goes more than an inch, it is getting sloppy. If it moves closer to 2 inches, it is worn out.
Try that first then let me know and we can go from there.
Good luck.
