Question about 1997 Chevrolet S-10 Pickup

1 Answer

Shifting Hard into Gears

I am having an issue with my shifter ''sticking'' or ''jamming'' while trying to shift into gears. 1st and 2nd gear in particular. It does not get any better as I drive. The issue just started yesterday and became much worse today. I had difficulty getting into 2nd gear several times to the point I was not sure if it was going to go. If the vehicle is turned off and I press the clutch in, it shifts smoothly w/o hesitation. It's a 97 Chevy s 10 with about 141k miles.

Any advise on what is going on or how to fix it?

    The clutch has never been changed that I know of. I have owned the truck since about 40k miles. I was hearing a "clinking" sound from what sounded around in front or underneath my seat off and an on for several months. It finally went away.

'99 wrangler has trouble shifting to 2nd gear - 4th gear occasionally slips to neutral


If you can see where the shifter goes through the floorboard, make sure the shifter is not hitting the floor.
There could be interfierence under the car also.

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.
