GEARBOX WONT GO INTO GEAR

WHEN RUNNING THE CAR WILL NOT ENGAGE ANY GEAR,THE GEAR LEVER WILL MOVE INTO ANY DRIVING POSITION AS IF SOMETHING IS BLOCKING IT. WHEN ENGINE IS OFF THE GEARBOX WILL ENGAGE ALL GEARS BUT ONCE STARTED AND THE CLUTCH PEDAL IS`DEPRESSED IT WILL NOT DISENGAGE THE CLUTCH COMPLETELY. FLUID LEVELS ARE ALL CORRECT AND HYDRAULIC CLUTCH SYSTEM HAS BEEN BLED.

Hi from uk could you please give a little more info ? what make/model car ? has this problem occured suddenly? has car been layed up off road some time prior to this unable to select gears ? this problem sounds very much like the clutch drive plate is either stuck to flywheel hence question above ? or it is sticking on primary/spigot shaft for some reason and failing to disengage drive to g/box? how does clutch pedal feel ? you might try selecting 2nd gear with clutch fully pressed and h/brake on then try starting engine if engine starts ?runs then put slight revs on and slip clutch a few times this may work if plate is sticking? if you come back with update may be able to advise further

How was the hydraulic clutch system bled? These things can be nearly impossible to bleed using conventional "you pump and I'll work the bleed valve" method. Many pro mechanics are not very good at it either.
Here's the trick: Get yourself an extra large "turkey baster" sized syringe(no needle) and about a foot of surgical tubing. Open the cap on the master cylinder and FILL IT UP-don't worry about the "full" marks. Go under the car and locate the hydraulic slave cylinder on the side of the trandmission. It will have a brake line running to it and the end of it sits against the clutch release lever. Find the bleed screw on the bottom of it and fit the surgical tubing over the end of it. Fit the other end of the tubing over the end of the syringe. Carefully loosen the bleed screw about 3/4 turn. Pull the plunger back on the syringe and observe the fluid as it fills it. STOP when it is 1/2 full!! Tighten the bleed screw back up, disconnect the tubing and squirt the fluid into the reservoir(will be nearly empty-it only holds about 1/3 cup!). repeat this 2-3 times until NO BUBBLES come into the syringe. Tighten up the bleed screw, replace the cap on the reservoir and that's it- you are done! On many cars, this is the ONLY WAY to get the hydraulic clutch to work properly. Good Luck!

Hi. Please check if there is something in under the gear lever in the centre consol, eg a coin. If not then i would look at the linkages under the car.

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!

My clutch works sometimes and sometimes it don't. I was driving came to a stop, tried to go it sounded like the clutch popped out of gear or something broke. My car wouldn't go so I got towed. but...


A clutch that's failing doesn't behaves like that - it slowly starts slipping until it fails completely and definitely. If it would break suddenly (like when the pressure plate would snap) the noise and the vibrations it would generate would be unbearable.
No, in your case something is failing inside the transmission/gearbox - most likely in the command forks and their locking pins. The gearbox will have to taken off the car and dismantled to investigate and fix that, and it will be expensive.

PrEngine is running, gearbox linkage can be seen moving looking down from engine - when driver puts lever into gear, gearbox not engaging - with or without clutch applied. Possible areas which could...


Unfortunately the problem will need investigating. There must be a problem with the flywheel / clutch assembly or the gearbox itself. The fact that you can move the gear linkage indicates that there is no drive in the gearbox ( ie not turning). The only items that effect this are the clutch / flywheel assembly or the primary shaft in the gearbox.
The gearbox will have to be removed and the above checked.

Gear Linkage from the gear lever to the gearbox may have come off unless the lever goes directly into the top of the box

Prob's with my Audi A6 2003 Auto 3.0 V6 (gearbox)


Doubt it as the fault suggests you need to look into the range sensor. If similar to Renault there is a switch on the gearbox that senses where the select lever is (at the gearbox end). If the display is wrong then the sensor needs looking at and either it will need to be adjusted into a set position by moving it, or perhaps the connector to it or wiring to/from it have a fault.

Car wont roll forward or back even in neutral


I assume it's a manual transmission.
If the car will not roll backward or forward in neutral (with or without the clutch engaged) the transmission is most likely locked in two gears at the same time.
This may happen if gear selectors are excessively worn. If you are able to examine the gear selection levers external to the gearbox, ensure they are in the 'neutral' (no gear selected) position when the gear lever is in Neutral. If not in correct position, you may be able to manually reset the levers to correct neutral position and thereby unlock the gearbox.
In any case, if it's happened once, it will happen again, so get the gearbox and gear selection mechanism checked for wear or breakage.

My car turns on but it wont shift into any gear


dear friend-your blinker light has nothing to do with your gearbox problem,i surgest you have a look at the hazard switch.regarding you gearbox problem i think we must start at the gear lever.make sure that when you press the button on the shift that it does dis-engage,then while having the shift in hand move the car forward and back wards,try to dis-engage,if not you will have to remove the sump and look at the meganism inside,it has a half moon operating the shaft that is connected to the lock meganism.
