Question about 1999 Chevrolet S-10 Pickup

1 Answer

Difficulty shifting, especially into 2nd gear

I have a 1999 S10 Pickup with 39,000 miles. I am having difficulty shifting, mostly into second gear. It occurs more often when the engine is cold in the morning. It feels spongy and will not shift into gear.

Sounds like you have air in your hydrolic portion of your clutch system, you need to see if your slave cylnder or your clutch master cylnder is leaking fluid putting air in your system. If the case is that you have just a hard to get in gear such as only 2nd then i would have suspected your secronizer ring being bad. or if all gears seem to be hard cold then you would either have a leaking hydrolic cylnder or the wrong fluid in trans.

My gear is stiff and experiencing a difficulty when engaging second gear. other gears seems to be fine but the shifting is not smooth.


I suspect that it will be in the shift mechanism
If it is a cable shift then replace the cable
If it levers or other linkages check and adjust or lubricate as required
I doubt it is in the clutch as you haven't mentioned difficulty in selecting first gear only shifting from 1 to 2nd.

Sounds like you have clutch problems, this can be the hydraulic release system or the clutch plate that is defective, only a trained technician can tell the difference. Most shops will do a preliminary diagnostic for free.

It sounds as though either the throw out bearing or pressure plate are bad. The grinding makes me want to lean towards the pressure plate.

Most likely is a shift silenoid. You can go to autozone and have them read the codes for you. Then you will know for sure.

the transmission needs to be taken apart and have the second gear synchro replaced. i would start with just have BG sychro shift put in at a local shop that sells BG. that will help with the problem.
