Check your clutch master cylinder's fluid,if low or empty,then pay your transmission a visit,on the side of her belly,there's a clutch slave cylinder,a fluid line is connected to it,see if it's leaking,if so replace,if not, then your clutch is suspect.

SOURCE: shifting problems

start with the clutch fluid, is it full? check the clutch cable from the pedal to the transmission, does it have a lot of play in it, is it adjustable? check the bushings on the shifter base, does the shifter itself have a lot of play in it? i'd start with those, if all those are ok then it might be the clutch itself. when a clutch gets worn down it doesn't release fully causing a hard shift or grinding when going into gear. put the truck on a flat surface so it doesn't free roll at all, with the engine off, put the truck in first or reverse, press the clutch pedal fully to the floor and start the engine. let off the brake. if the truck moves at all it means your clutch cable is out of adjustment or its just getting worn out. provifing the shifter and the fluid level is good.

It sounds like your clutch isn't releasing properly. Do you need to adjust the pedal free play or bleed the hydraulics? If that doesn't fix it you may need take another look at the clutch you put in.

There is air in the system. The slave cylinder does provide pressure to return the pedal. Check to be sure that you have plenty of fluid in the master cylinder (clutch). Slowly work the pedal back and forth to try and remove air. (This usually works unless you have really lost all fluid. Once the air is remove depress the clutch while in gear. If it does not keep the car from moving then replace the slave and master cylinder. The parts are a little over $100. Hope this helps. I have one in the shop right now as a matter of fact...

Mid sixties Ford 4000. Suddenly decided to make severe grinding noise when trying to engage gears and cannot engage gears. Weirdly this does not always happen. Gears engage OK when engine not running


Hello, you may have more success in the proper category of lawn or farm stuff. Fortunately I have same Tractor. Sounds like clutch fork is not moving clutch the same way each time you press clutch. Could be clutch needs play removed. Sometimes there is a pivot ball for the clutch fork to rest on. When the pivot ball is worn the clutch fork can rock. Also remember RPM to give gears time to stop spinning before changing gears.

When stopped gears sometime grind when shifting into 1st gear(2001 Ford Focus)


Then the clutch is not releasing properly & the continual
grinding will wear the gear teeth & you may also have worn
syncros, that will require you to pull the trans & go thru it, as well
as do a clutch replacement

I have a 93 Toyota pick up 4x4 standard transmission. Sometimes when I go to reverse, there is a grinding noise, which won't let me shift into reverse. I then need to turn off the vehicle, then engage....


Could be the clutch.
Reverse and first do not have gears that line up like the others do. So if the clutch is not disengaging all the way, they will grind.

F250 1997 with standard transmission . all gears change fine except it grinds going into reverse . 156000 kms on it ,


Hi there, Reverse has no synchronisers ( which all other gears have which enables you to change gear almost without the clutch )
So i think the reason for grinding going into reverse is your clutch is not disengaging enough.
This maybe just clutch adjustment ( Sorry i`m not totally familiar with your car to know if adjustment
is possible) or the clutch itself is mechanically faulty
Hope i have been of some help to you.
good luck John ( South Wales UK ).

Grind when putting into reverse, hard to gp into 1st gear


When it is hard to go into gear or grinding when going into gear is an indication of worn synchronizers. The only solution is to take it to a mechanic that specializes in transmissions and having the synchronizers replaced. Sometimes a weak clutch and clutch plate can make it hard to go into the lower gears, you may want to examine these first.

I have a 2002 mustang GT 5 speed,and it grinds going into 3rd gear,every other gear is fine,any suggestions? thanks steve


these are just some suggestions to help diagnose, 1. check gear oil level low level can cause gear free spin if not efficient amount of gear oil causing a grind as entering gear. 2. If you do some agressive driving, or rest your foot on the clutch frequently while driving, can cause excessive heat in clutch causing warpage of clutch or flywheel, once it is warped will cause vibration to transmission causing shifting issues sometimes only in one gear if you have a service boot on your transmission bell housing you can pull this of and monitor smoothness of clutch an fly wheel while running and tranny in nuetral excessive runout is a sign of something warped. 3. is not so not easy most of the time third gear is the main gear for the syncronizers, generally the first gear to show issues when they are failing, The transimission would have to be pulled torn apart and inspected to truly diagnose this as your problem. Good luck

Grinding gears from 1st to 2nd, 3rd to 5 ok


Either your clutch is getting bad, or you're shifting down too soon, and up too late. Try double clutching. Push in your clutch and push it into neutral. Release the clutch, fan the gas pedal, push the clutch again and shift into 1st. All this does is sychronize the speed of the transmission with the speed of the engine. There were, in the 60's, a lot of cars with the old "three on the tree" that you had to do this every time, and you get pretty good at it after a while.

Transmision shifting problem


Reverse is not sycronized, this means the gears have to stop to mess and not grind, two thing cause this, being to quick to slam into reverse after clutch is depressed, a problem with the clutch.
