I'm sorry i don't have a diagrahm but the good news is, you can't assemble incorrectly! The dam thing will only go together one way. Put ALL the forks on. Slid the rails in, 1st/2nd first, 5th/rev last and don't leave out any interlock pins and your home free

SOURCE: hilux leaking gear oil

There is a plug on the side of the gear box. Pull plug out. You should be able to stick your finger into the hole and touch the gear oil. If not, check on your owner manual and see what type of oil goes back into the gear box. Fill it up until it start coming out of the plug hole.put plug back in, & back to riding.

Are when you go to the oil change shop???? Get them to show you where it is at, and get them to top it off for you.???

Jumping out of first gear in my hilux surf,what causes that & how best way to fix cheaply

No. The synchro hub is worn and where one is worn so may the others be. Try a yard or small ads or ebay if you can't find a local specialist. The cost of genuine toy parts may make an exchange box a better bet.

Toyota hilux 1996 how do i know if im stuck in 4wd an the light aint on

You should be able to hear to front differential whine and notice a change in performance, especially at low speed. I assume the selector is in 2WD. I suspect that there is a switch associated with the linkage - you may be able to find a diagram on line. Try replacing the light but if the light is OK (check with an ohm meter) the switch may be bad.

1989 Ford Crown Victoria wont go into reverse and drives in nuetral???

Sounds like your linkage slipped out of sequence. On your transmission there is a place where you can manually shift your tansmission through the gears. When you move the selector on the trani it should move the shifter as well. All the way up on selector should be park, then R,N,D so on. If you move the selector all the way up at your shifter reads something else, you need to adjust the linkage and put car in park with selector on trani in park and tighten linkage back up. Run through all the gears and you should be good.

Citroen jumper gear change

Your description makes me remember an old Austin Metropolitan I had once. The gear linkage was crude and it was possible sometimes to engage two gears at once resulting in a lock-up and a stalled engine. It never happened while driving at speed.

When repairing a gearbox, once the selector linkage has been removed it is usual to select two gears in order to lock the shafts for the tightening or loosening of a retaining nut. There is built into the internal selector linkage an interlock to prevent two gears being selected.

I imagine that interlock in your gearbox is worn or broken...

No matter which shifting position it is in ,,,,,it will only go backwards

this is either a broken gear shift linkage, where moving the selector is not moving the corresponding cog in the box, or an internal gearbox fault, where the reverse unit is jammed in position.

either way, i think the gearbox will need to come out and be replaced/rebuilt by a gearbox specialist

Gearbox linkages are in and will not select a gear


Make sure they are syncronised correctly and that non of them have too much movement in either direction.

Also ensure that the linkages are not crossing over up to the gear lever selector or on the gearbox selectors.

I just bought a 1984 ford ranger with a 5 speed manual transmission.Nothing wrong test drive good,clutch is smooth and The gears all flowed just as they should.My girlfriend was messing with the gear...

Not too sure how common a problem this is but it may have come off the selector rod which is attached to the gear stick. If this is ok then the problem will be inside the gearbox and the selector fork has popped off the selector hub inside the gearbox...It will have to come out if this has happened. So check for any linkages attached to the gearstick an make sure they are still in the arms. Hope this helps, let me know how you get on.

My AC air registers only have air coming out of the defrost ducts

In every car, there are fins or flaps inside the dash that rotate that distributes the air flow from the blower to the desired opening, ie defrost, floor etc... This flap is controlled by a linkage which is connected to the selector switch. It may be the linkage is no longer connected, or the fins inside the dash are stuck. If the selector switch moves freely with little or no resistence its possible the linkage is no longer connected, otherwise the flaps need to be physically looked at.
