Question about 1983 Chevrolet K2500

1 Answer

Transmisson keeps popping out of second gear

The clutch is new and the fluid is fine. It feels like it is going into gear but as soon as I start letting off the clutch it jumps between in gear and nuetral causing a slight grind. All the other gears hold fine.

In the transmission itself there are clutches between the gears. (small rings) these are worn and needs to be replaced.

instead of buying a new transmission, It would be cheaper (i think) to purchase a transmission kit for your make and model transmission and replaces the parts. Its basically rebuilding the transmission so it will return to prime condition.. It does require a professional though , you should consult with your mechanic the cost of a new one and rebuilding this one.

SOURCE: cant shift? reverse grinds? and pressure in clutch is low

What you describe sounds very much like the clutch is failing to disengage.
Fluid level being fine and no leaks under the car is good, but doesnt mean there isnt something wrong with either the master cylinder, slave cylinder, or the associated parts.

Highly unlikely there is a fault with the flywheel or clutch as failures with these would normally give no drive in any gear.

starting on very cold mornings ,the engine will run at high rpms (just like you have a choke on) and then will after a minute or two return to idle rpms( most cars is around 850-900)
If you have a hydraulic clutch and you have never changed the fluid then I suggest that you have it done as the fluid is probably freezing the water content in it ( brake fluid is hygroscopic-- attracts moisture from the air)
Check the linkage adjustments for dirt and other foreign objects stopping full movement or if the lever is direct into the top of the box then check the gear lever pivot at the top of the box for loose or adjustment.
If you have a cable clutch ,consider replacing the cable.

I think I would take a look at the catalytic converter. Sounds like it has become plugged and they will become more so as it gets hotter. Pull it loose and look in the front side to see what kind of shape the comb is in, should be obvious if that is it.

The high viscosity ensures transfer of lubricant throughout the gear train. Some modern automatic trans-axles (integrated transmission and differential) do not use a heavy oil at all, but lubricate with the lower viscosity hydraulic fluid, which is available within the automatic transmission.

Problems shifting, clutch feels fine.


Most likely the master cylinder. Both usually need replaced together. If one fails the other will most likely soon after. Then bleed system again.

My transmission shifts through all gears okay but then vehicle starts to shake and shutter i let off of gas and its okay but still does it randomly


Is it an automatic? if it is check the fluid level is it low? if yes add fluid to the transmisson, if the fluid is a brownish color and smells like onions then the fluid is burnt and you will need to change the filter and 12 quarts of transmisson fluid. This is going to be the cheepest fix that you can do to find out if this is the problem, one the fluid is changed and it still does it then the bands and clutches are going out or the tork converter is going bad regardless it will have to be checked by a transmisson shop. the fluid and filter will cost you about $70.00 if you do the job yourself. Good luck and thanks for using fix-ya and hope this helps.

Well, there is only one thing I can think of in your situation. Your pressure plates just simply are not creating enough pressure to allow the gears to engage. Either you have a defective clutch and it needs to be replaced, or possibly just needs a ton of adjustment. When you put it in 1st gear while engine is off, then start it and take off that works b/c there is enough pressure to keep the gears from starting to move when not already moving. However when they are already moving, there is just not enough pressure to stop them from turning, not even long enough to shift. Have you tried forcing it into 2,3, or 4 while driving without the clutch? As long as you achieve the correct RPM's your transmission should be able to do so.
