Easiest thing to do is change the transmission oil and see if you're still having the issue. Usually what you're describing can be fixed by just changing the oil.

My gear is stiff and experiencing a difficulty when engaging second gear. other gears seems to be fine but the shifting is not smooth.


I suspect that it will be in the shift mechanism
If it is a cable shift then replace the cable
If it levers or other linkages check and adjust or lubricate as required
I doubt it is in the clutch as you haven't mentioned difficulty in selecting first gear only shifting from 1 to 2nd.

Hyundai 2013 I30 gearbox 'SKLITCH' between 5th and 6th gear


It sounds like BS to me but what do I know. I'm only in this business for 40 years. What they did was put heavy oil in the gear box to try to mask the sound. That's why it is difficult to shift (stiff).

Alway ask for the old parts when a replacement is not visible after repairs!

Are you sure you installed clutch plate facing right way? They are either stamped or have a tag says "flywheel side". Or might have wrong clutch kit.

Vw pasat 1.9 tdi. Car has become difficult to get into gear but drives perfectly when in gear no great difficulty changing gear when car in motion. Does the 1999 Pasat operate on a clutch cable or...


The clutch is operated by hydraulic system. before you change gears, press the clutch pedal few times to increase the pressure in the hydraulic system. if it improves it then there is a leak in the hydraulic system. comen component to fail are Slave cylinder or masture cylinder. Good luck.....

Have freelander td4 03 plate, continuous problem with clutch. had new clutch , slave cylinder and master 2 months ago, all fine till a month ago lost pedal completely , had new master fittted problem fixed...


Definitely a hydraulic issue. Iknow you said they were both changed, but its usually the master & slave assembly that go faulty on the Freelander. Both parts come filled with fluid and pre-bled and only require fitting, no bleeding. Check with garage to make sure they did not split / bleed them.

The gear shift, (on the steering column) has become stiff. It still works but is stiff.


The gear change at the end out side the fire wall goes back to a x shaft and on to the side of the auto box, so take off the Gear box end and then try it,If still stiff then its due to lack of lub (oil) so lub with engine oil on all bushes and under the Steering wheel, play with it till free an easy.
Reconnect and test run.
IF its free then the problem is in the Auto-Gearbox and thats a lot more
of a problem and you either have to get it done be the Auto box shop or try it your self,and thats a shaft that goes into the valve body housing
in the pan and thats a big job,not the sort of thing you want to try
beleave me.Let me know how you get on RON
