Question about 1997 Isuzu Rodeo

1 Answer

Can't shift the gears. It's a 5 speed.

The clutch pedal sticks and I can't get the car in gear, especially in the morning. At first I only had problems in the morning and then it would drive fine for the rest of the day. This morning after several attempts, it never went into gear. This has been happening for about a wk and a half.

We have replaced 5 speed transmission everything is new clutch pressure plate a truck will shift while turned off and will not shift in gear while running whats wrong


Is clutch release linkage working? Installing clutch disc backwards will do this too. With engine off, put in gear, depress clutch pedal and turn engine by hand to see if clutch is still dragging.

2004 dodge ram 1500 with the 3.7L V6 5 speed manual. The truck drives and shifts fine but after driving for a while it won't be able to shift into or out of any gear.


the reason for hard shifting and selection when running is that the clutch shaft ( input shaft) is still turning even though the clutch pressure plate is released
it can be from oil/grease on the fly wheel /pressure plate face causing it to stick when hot
it may be from sticking clutch plate on the splines binding when hot
or it could be a dry spigot bush or failed bearing in the end of the crankshaft that positions the clutch shaft
check the pedal height adjustment and the position it is from the floor when starting to engage
It may be adjustment under the dash

2002 honda accord 5 speed.Drove it home parked .When I tried to go the next morning I could not shift to any gear If I turn off the engine I can shift ??


Any noises when you engage the clutch or shift? Could be several things. If it is hydraulic clutch, check the master cylinder level. It will be on the firewall just outside where pedals fasten to floor. Use dot 3 brake fluid to fill it if necessary. If it is full may have trouble with pressure plate and trowout bearing binding up.

I have a 98 BMW 328i with a manual 5-speed transmission. One day I get in the car and noticed it was hard to shift into gears the clutch felt good and car would drive normal just stiff to put into gears...


It could be typically due to one or two things:

1) The clutch plate is sticking on the gearbox splines due to build up of corrosion or lack of lubrication. May happen especially after long standing with no operation.

2) Gearbox oil is old and requires replacement.

3) Clutch operation requires adjustment or repair. Check clutch fluid or cable condition and operation.

1998 Saturn SC1 manuel stick is hard to shift into 1st & 2nd gear


Try to double clutch the clutch pedal. How to double clutch; push the clutch in moving the stick to neutral, then release the clutch and then push it back in and shift into first or second gear. If it works then it is not the shift linkage and could be a clutch adjustment. First how far do you have to release the clutch pedal until the clutch plate starts to engage? If only an inch or so the clutch pedal needs to be adjusted, which is an easy fix (this is more common). The other possible problems could be the clutch plate, throwout bearing of syncros could be bad. If it is one of the previous problems double clutching should buy you some time.

2003 Nissan Sentra SE-R Spec-V clutch sticking and hard shifting


I am dealing with a very similar issue on my 03 Spec V , So far i noticed the clevis pin was loose and the locking hitch pin that slips thru it had fallen out . this caused the gears to not wanna engage due to the bolt behind the clevis which runs to the master cylinder was not getting pressed in when i pushed the clutch pedal in because the clevis pin was slippin on n off giving me no pressure up top .. I had to remove my lower dash panel in order to get visual n hand access to this pin , it is a tight spot to work in as well . May be easist to remove the 4 14mm bolts that hold yur driver seat in to give ya more room to work n stretch out ur arms

Grinding gears from 1st to 2nd, 3rd to 5 ok


Either your clutch is getting bad, or you're shifting down too soon, and up too late. Try double clutching. Push in your clutch and push it into neutral. Release the clutch, fan the gas pedal, push the clutch again and shift into 1st. All this does is sychronize the speed of the transmission with the speed of the engine. There were, in the 60's, a lot of cars with the old "three on the tree" that you had to do this every time, and you get pretty good at it after a while.

Clutch pedal suddenly goes to the floor, no longer [dis]engaging the clutch


I found that having a wood stick on the clutch pedal down to the floor all night (the other end of the stick held by the seat. oh yeah !!! ) would help to ease shifting for the first hour the next morning, then it would come back stiff and hard to engage in gear.
