The clutch IS your tranny in a manual car. Sounds like a rebuild is in order. At least a pressure plate and throwout bearing.

This may have some useful info in it for you, as well as a blowout diagram of the internal parts.

    about $50 in parts and $400 labor. Depends where you are at, and who you take it to.

    Some shadetree Mechanics would do it for a case of beer :D

My 2000 Sephia will only shift gears manually from 1,2, then to drive. I get a code PO734. How do I fix and or slove this problem?


This is what your codes mean:

Trouble Code-P0734 (A/T Additional Gear Ratio Error In Fourth Gear)


Trouble Code Conditions:
Vehicle driven to a speed of 4-37 mph at more than 500 rpm, gear selector in 4th Gear in Drive, and the PCM detected too much difference in the engine speed and output shaft speed.
Possible Causes:
  • Customer may complain of intermittent 4th gear operation
  • O/D and 2/4 pressures less than 75 psi
  • O/D or 2/4 clutch volume indexes out of specification
  • O/D accumulator seals are damaged
  • Transmission enters "limp in" mode running in 4th gear

Trouble Code-P0735 (A/T Gear Ratio Error Fourth Prime)

Trouble Code Conditions:
Vehicle driven any forward Gear, and the TCM detected the ratio of the Input speed to the Output Speed did not match the current Gear Ratio (this test can take up to 5 minutes).
Possible Causes:
  • Related Gear Ratio trouble codes may be stored (note that some of these Gear Ratio trouble codes may be intermittent)
  • Transmission has internal problems or damage present
You have a transmission problem.Hope this helps, James Booth

My check engine light comes on after driving a while it first had code 32 and then the car (92 firebird, 305) does not start now and checked the codes and they are code 32,53,54. My engine does not role...


code 32 - egr system error.
code 53- vehicle anti theft system fault
code 54 - fuel pump voltage low
suggest that your vehicle anti theft system is causing the no turn over condition

If the smell of fuel is there,check the plugs.Are they all firing.Look at the plugs and see if any look different to the others in color.If so check that cylinder.Check the lead to that plug.Is it ok.At idle,pull the lead on and off and see if the revs drop.If you get a zap,all is good:) Or use a heavy rag.Check all this first.You may have an 8 that is running on 6.Basics 1st.Hope this helps

1989 pontiac firebird 305 v8 starts and idles


Your idle air control valve may be dirty or the wire harness may be damaged. First try cleaning the throttle body with throttle body cleaner and make sure you use all the can up and try to get the idle air control valve cleaned. A faulty or dirty idle air control valve will cause engine to stall when put in to gear from idle. Good luck and hope this helps. Keep me posted, be glad to help you get your car running 100% soon.

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.
