Hi Gary, I may be wrong but I think the gear selector mechanism would not cause the vehicle to cut out? If a diagnostic scan has reported a fault with the selector mechanism it will be with alignment of the switching mechanism which allows start up only in park or neutral. If the starter turns the engine with the selector in either of those two positions (P or N) the problem is with the engine not the shifter. If the engine does not turn you may have two or more problems. Give more details and describe the events leading to the problem more clearly. Regards John
Hi GJ, If the box is auto check the oil level in the box. You should do that with the park brake fully employed and the engine at idle speed with the selector in neutral. If the box is manual check the clutch adjustment, it should take about two and a half inches up from the floor. If the notchy change is only on one gear you may have a synchromesh cone problem and that means a box rebuild. Regards John
where the hole is for your say t bar selector on gear box, should be closest to the rear of your car so park is forward in the car means the gear box selector should be in opposite direction means closest to rear of car if having problems give me a call 0414946767 good luck.
Auto boxes are best left to professionals but there are some things you can do 1) check that the selector rod from beneath the gear shift to the gear selector on the side of the gear box is correctly adjusted, 2) make sure that the transmission oil is at the right level, new oil can be added via the dip stick tube. If you are adventurous and are able to remove the gearbox pan you might be to see evidence of the gear box damage, metal shavings etc. If you can remove the gearbox you may be able to replace a sheared splined input shaft (indicated by a an engine that is running but that will simply not engage gear). Anything repairs beyond this should be left to an expert or simply replace the gearbox
If it only drops out on the over run only then its due to either the selector ball and spring on the selector shaft (spring gone weak )., or 5th gear scrinco worn out and needs replacing or the spigot shaft (input shaft) bearing worn allowing the shaft to move forward 3mm on over run, or a worn clutch plate can help cause the same problem.
THE ANSWER IS gear box out ,strip out and rebuild and both bearings on spigot shaft, and check clutch plate springs for wear.
LET ME KNOW HOW YOU GET ON . RON
If you have the selector in "2", it will not make the final 2 shifts. "2" is nice for descending very steepo hills slowly, and also is nice to use coming down hills when it is icy/snowy, the engine will slow down in "2", and you will not have to depress the brake pedal.
