Engaging gears on X type 2004 2.o D SE

I seem to have a clunky feel when putting my car into 1st gear, the rest seem ok, is this the clutch or the gear itself?

Its the clutch,clutch plate worn and pressure plate spring a bit weak on one side and dragging.when engaging first engage second first then push up into first.or turn off engine ,engage first then start engine in gear.When changing clutch fit only a valeo,borg and beck.any branded make but not a reconditioned unit.This is a JAG remember,so no smoking in car,polish every sunday and cream the leather every second week .

I installed a complete clutch & Flywheel. I popped outta 1st gear & won't go into any gear whatsoever. Linkage & slave cylinder work! feels like it's going into gear but when i let clutch out nothing


Isolate the problem. Sound like clutch is stuck and not disengaging. Engine off put in gear and rock the vehicle,, with help from a friend press clutch pedal while in gear and have friend push, you will know if the tranny is ok and clutch is stuck. Now check the clutch, slave etc for engagment and disengagment / Clutch linkage- movement/travel may need adjustment or you have something wrong in the reassembly..

How do I fix my car having problems shifting into first gear?


I'm assuming that this is a manual transmission.
Old truck drivers trick...... Push in the clutch just as you try to put it into gear. If you do it too soon, it may make a grinding noise. Practice..... Thr trick is to have the transmission just barely rotating as you're grabbing the gear. Older vehicles can develop shifting issues as the synchro rings get worn. Pretend you're a trucker and feel the shift happen.

Problems selecting 1st gear peugeot 106 1.1 zest


If the clutch is a problem you will have difficulty selecting 1st only as the gears would be spinning from the engine revs.. I would say that the front input shaft (clutch shaft) bearing is failing allowing miss alignment of the synchros and not allowing proper engagement of the gears synchro rings. It means removal and repair to the gear box so the clutch can be inspected while the box is out.

Clutch problem


Is your truck of the vintage that will be able to start in gear (1st) with the clutch in? If so, then try that and then lift the clutch to see where it engages. If it engages at the very bottom, and the rest is play, then clearly you have an adjustment issue. If the clutch catches at near normal like on inch+ off top end pedal, then you may have a high idle issue together with bag syncs. Where does it feel like it engages when the engine is off? Does it feel normal with only the top end play light, or does it feel light throughout the pedal?

It may be the synchro of the first gear.  It may have been worn out.  To check, you may try to put it in 2nd gear before putting it into first to be sure.

Clutch or tranny


Ok, Clutch engagement point should be midway or just before midway in relation to total travel.(pretty much the same in any clutch vehicle) assuming that if put in lets say 1st gear, with clutch in,then engine started, when clutch is released, car does not move but there are no unusual noises (grinding from inside trans.) If this is the case, I'd first check linkage for adjustment. If OK, remove the trans and look inside for broken gears, excessive metal debris etc.If shift rails are internal it could be that shift forks are sliding on rails and failing to engage synchros.

2nd gear clutching


STOP Downshifting!
STOP Forcing gear change, watch the Engine RPMs and shift accordingly, HOMBRE's are as good as the operator's. Hombre's have dash shift indicators which illuminate when it's time to 'shift' and not before, This has nothing to do with gear oil either. If you've drained it, you best fill it immediately and make sure it's ample level. The heat these gears sustain in is inceredible, cooling lubricant is essential. Here's a tip, while engine is OFF, ignition key is engaged, dash is illuminated, depress clutch peddle, keep it depressed and walk through all gears with gear shift, shifting should be smooth and unpeded, including reverse. If resistance is experienced at one or more gears, gear alignment is off as a result of inproper gear shifting while driving. Continue to drive vehicle just shift slower until clutch needs replacement then do an entire drive shaft upgrade. It worth it, it's great truck.
