Start with checking fluid levels. Technically your car has a torque converter not the standard clutch as in a manual. Complete loss of power is usually the result of a breakage in the stator clutch. This said if your fluids are low then the auto will not go - serious damage to transmissions are likely if you run low fluids or the wrong fluids in them

You need to check the adjustment on the shifter, I think that may be the problem, do that before assuming the gearbox is defective.

I have a 91 toyota celica that will not go when put into gear.


Have you had problems with clutch slipping up to this point? Like engine revving up and no change in speed while driving. Like going into 4th or 5th gear, letting clutch out, giving gas, and feels like no response? Engine just revs up? That's a slipping clutch.
If that's your problem, you need a new clutch.

Hi I have a 94 del sol 1.5 when its in gear and your driving around 1500rpm it starts to **** and if I ride the clutch it idles up and down but at idle not in gear it runs smooth


difficult one this ,its a manual so this obviously not a american version ,To be honest here this is one of them questions where i would need a road test i think to see first hand the problem,Their is a multitude of things that could cause this ,the idle with foot off the clutch could be the crank thrust bearing are worn causing a resistance ,to check this get someone to push the clutch down and you check the front pulley to see if it moves forewards when clutch is pushed down ,now as for the missing at 1500rpm this may just need the plugs regapping to 25 th but it could also be a mass air flow sensor even a coil pack and without head under bonnet i have no idea

My 2003 cavalier automatic transmission slips in last high gear


The slip is likely always there you just feel it the most in top gear because that is when the most stress is on the clutch pack inside the transmission. You will need to have the transmission overhauled in most cases to correct this.

My1989 fordf150 runs but it wont go into gear


If your F150 is standard shift, don't try to put first gear with the motor running, you might brake some gears in the transmission. Probably you have a worn out clutch disk. To diagnose this you could try to put your truck in first gear with your motor off, push the clutch and start it, CAUTION, if the cluthc is not working your truck will go foward. Don't be afraid, try doing this on an open space or road with little traffic. Then you you feel you got to change to second gear, get your foot off the gas and inmediatelly shift to second gear having in mind not to force the stick if it sound, feel the stick until it goes easily to second gear. If you accelerate and the truck does not slips and has power accelerating, the disk is working fine, but if you feel it slipping and your revolutions go up but the truck stays more or less in the same place, you have a default clutch disk.

No if yoou feel no pressure on the pedal, this is the pressure plate has no strength, this is a default pressure plate. If you feel the clutch strong but when you push it it sounds like a broken bearing, this is the pressure plate bearing that is bad.

Ok, to change this you must lower your transmission, then take the clutch assembly from the motor. It is good to have a center shaft to re-install the clutch. After you remove the transmission, you take out the clutch case. Here it is recommended to check the rear clutch seal to avoid future ooil leaks. Then remove the pressure plate with the bearing and the disk is inside next to the flywheel.
By what you told us, your truck must be a standard shift. Because if this happens in an automatic transmission, probably the planetariums are damaged inside the transmission.
