Some possibilities are the syncro energise spring has come out and not spinning up the gear to allow engagement Prove by engageing and dis engaging with engine stopped and foot on clutch or the hub has been put in back to front or the selector fork has been fitted inncorrectly

im a little confused re clutch replacement normally in order to start a manual transmission car the clutch pedal needs to be pressed down all the way before the car will turnover . as you say it will start but you need to push down clutch am i right? but when you try to put it into gear grinding ?wont go in to gear yes is this whats hapinin?ok the way that these clutches work nowadays is that there is a system similar to brake system there is a resivoir for the oil and a slave cylinder that pushes the clutch throwout leaver so that the gears can be changed did you see a small cylinder that pushes against the clutch lever? does it have a hose coming from it ? this system needs to be bleed just like the brakes on your car . find the resivoir small resivoir open lid and fill with brake fluid now go under car and find slave cylinder it will be somewhere near the transmission and bellhousing there will be a hose attached there will also be a bleed nipple attached you need to open this a few turns and let it drip dont press clutch pedal when bleed screw is open it will bring air into system , you want to remove all the air in the system so get a friend to go into car and pump clutch pedal then hold it to the floor while its being held down you open bleed screw until clutch pedal hits the floor tighten bleed screw then tell friend to pump up again do this 5 or 6 times making shure clutch fluid level doesnt drop down too far keep topping it up with the fluid that squirts out while bleeding this way you dont waste fluid as well as keeping fluid from hitting the ground .anyhow after trying this slave cylinder bleeding proceedure .try to see if car will go into gear . also see that there is no adjustment on slave cylinder . also i hope that you put the clutch facing the correct direction flywheel side towards flywheel . let me know how you do with this project

SOURCE: car will not move when

Have a helper put it in first gear and then check to see if any of the driveshafts or half shafts are spinning. U could have a broken axle, or one of your axles popped out. Or u could have spun all the fiber or lining off your clutch disk. With car running try to shift in to gear without depressing the clutch if it goes into gear with no grinds then it your disk. just a few simple tricks to try.

SOURCE: clutch

the acuating cylinder for the clutch needs to be replaced. this explains why you ahve no resistance when you deprress the clutch peddle. when adjusted right you should have no more than 1-1 1/2 inches of free play in the clutch peddle. and since the car will be in gear with out the clutch being pressed tells me that the clutch itself is good. please rate this

SOURCE: when does one engage the ''L'' gear when driving a mitsubishi rvr c

the L gear is Gear # 1 and likewise 2 is second gear, you utilise this in case you are going down on a slop especially icy or snow condition all it does is runs just on 1 or 2 respectively without changing whichh gieves more traction on the road.

You talking manual transmision or auto? If it manual, it is the clutch because the clutch is always engaged in less you push the clutch pedal down.

Will not go into first gear when going down the gears


I will answer this as if it is a manual gear box as the solution will be different for an automatic.
First gear has a syncro ring energise spring that when pushed against the syncro cone in the gear spins the gear to the relevant shaft speed so that engagement is smooth. Because of the vast difference of the shaft speeds when engaging 1st gear the energising doesn't get a chance to work and so the gears refuse to mesh. To possible ways to get around this is to keep the road speed low say around 10mph or less or increase the engine rpm up to around 3500-4000rpm before trying to engage 1st gear. Basically the syncro is for engaging the gear as you are coming to a stop or going very slow . Check the drain plug magnet for metal as the clutch shaft bearing may be moving forward and preventing the engagement properly.

On a nissan pulsar 98 model the trans stick is very hard to get into gear


The syncros in your transmission have gone bad. The synchros allow the gears to mesh easily so you do not have this problem engaging the transmission into gear. If you can not afford to have your transmission rebuilt or replaced I would recommend doing a transmission servie and replacing your current fluid with synthetic tranny fluid. This may help a little. You can also double clutch when shifting.

1972 Triumph Spitfire, 3rd gear grinding


Jumping out of third was a common problem with the Spitfire quick changing up from forth gear would beat the syncro and chip the teeth on the drive dog then the bits would stop the syncro from engaging fully and it would jump out. If you replaced the syncro and the drive hub it may just be a bit stiff, the selector also wore quite quickly and misaligned the drive hub causing it to be hard to select.
I will scratch about in my very old manuals and see if I can find the spitfire gearbox manual, If I can I will post it.
