It sounds to me like the clutch is not working properly.
This may be an adjustment problem or signs of a worn clutch.
Try selecting 5th gear and with the handbrake on let out the clutch, if the engine stalls then the clutch is probably ok and may just need adjusted. If the engine doesn't stall then your clutch is shot and unfortunately its gearbox back out to fit a new clutch.

Hi there:
If its only heard when its in reverse gear then further checks will need to be made to the gearbox,driveshafts,Gear linkages,clutch operation etc.

Gear shift lever goes into place as it should be in reverse but gears grind when clutch is engaged as it is not completely in reverse.


its worn by the sound of it ,either the linkage needs a new joint or a bit of a repair but i suspect the gear selector inside the gearbox is worn the fork type thing is worn and its not moving the gear over ,ask a local mechanic to have a look for you as he will soon the problem in seconds but you may need another gearbox from scrapyard but a mechanic might be able to see a problem with the linkage that i cannot see from a here in spain

When i shift into third the gears grind.. why?


sounds like the syncromesh has gone in the gearbox. If you dont want them to grind, you,ll have to double declutch. I f you cant do this, get a new gearbox.

A few things can cause your symptoms. Check the slave cylinder, see if the res. is full, any leaks, or if the pedal changes if you pump it. If it checks out then you may need a new pilot bearing, throw-out bearing, and/or clutch assembly.

Car not shifting into second gear


If the car is grinding when going into reverse, you need to have the clutch bled or repaired.

If it goes into reverse with out grinding, I am sorry to tell you your problem is internal to the gearbox. Bad or damaged Syncro

Good luck
