Try 4th gear. if not as much noise or no noise then its quite likly you need a transmission ohaul as the input gear that meshes with the cluster gear has stripped some teeth

SOURCE: truck makes a clunk when intially put into gear

Look for dust like rust color at either U-joint, my guess is it's time to change at least one, but if I did one, I'd do other too.

As I said, trans fluid keeps the internal components "alive"... Low fluid level can cause burning of internal clutches, premature hardening of seals (essential to proper transmission of fluid pressure) as well as lubrication of necessary gear components such as planetary gear set (which can cause whine etc. which you now have) All of these components rely upon a constant flow of fluid for both cooling and lubrication. Depending upon how low and how long these parts had interrupted fluid flow, directly influences how much damage was done. I take no joy in telling you that you may have damaged your unit, I'd be far happier if I could give you a quick, inexpensive fix. But based upon what you have said, If I was working hands-on with this problem, I would make the recommendation I've already made. There are pressure tests etc that can be done at a transmission shop to verify to some degree of certainty what is going on within your unit. Hopefully they may find something other than what I've said. At this point though, it is wise to have it checked out by a professional, before you become stranded at a time when you can least afford to be.

Well your clunking noise is most likely the u-joints the leaking pan is the tranny pan what you would have to do is get a tranny kit and change the pan gasket tranny filter and fluid or take to a shop and have a tranny service done.

Fiesta started making noises either gearbox or clutch? clunks going in to reverse, shudders driving off in 1st gear


sounds like your clutch is going out, is it hard to put in gear with clutch all the way depressed? could also be the sinkronyzer going out, could be the gears in the transmission also going bad. need to check the fluid in the transmission.

We have had some colder weather in colorado and I have found that when I back out of the drive way and put the car in forward gears (automatic) it does nothing. Sometimes it takes 20 - 30 seconds before it...


have you check the tranny fluid level yet?
I dont know how m,any miles are on your vehicle,but have you changed the filter and fluid in the tranny?
if I was going by just what you wrote I would say either the out put or in put sensors are affecting it.

2003 automatic VW Passat not changing gears right


The trannys on the vw's are weird, they actually have a brain which tells the tranny what to do, when to switch gears under the driving conditions etc. Is thair a check engine light on? when is the last time you had a tranny service done on it? Also, it sounds even weirder, but is your alternator ok, is it putting out the proper volts to the battery? the alternator not charging the system can lead to alot of weird acting issues.

92 nissan, makes a clunking sound from 1st gear to 2nd gear.


check fluid level first, run car for at least a minute with the the trans in the park position.
turn off car and check the fluid level within 10 seconds, top up if necessary.
The fluid could also be burnt and the filter inside the trans could also be blocked, otherwise your trans is on its last legs.
Filter replacement is a job for an experiened mechanic, The trans sump needs to come off.
The trans also contains electronics of which contaminated fluid could also pose a problem.
