It sounds like a timing problem....First, have you had a tuneup lately? If not, parts may be corroded or burnt. The fuel filter may need to be changed...Next, the timing chain may need replacing...Check it out!

SOURCE: my 89' ford ranger 2.3L idles fine stalls in gear

you have a restriction in your exhaust system. It might be the catylitic converter plugged or the muffler plugged. If not this check the tailpipe for pluggage.

SOURCE: manual transmission takes effort to put in gear.

Have the clutch looked at. If the clutch is not releasing fully it makes shifting difficult. Have the trans fluid changed too, it isn't expensive and probably is listed under your maintanance in the owners manual

SOURCE: my ford focus tdi 2003 cant select 1st,3rd or 5th gears.

Car is in limp in mode unless you have the tools to work on automatic transmission you will need to take it to a transmission shop. Of course you can check oil level but I suspect you have other issues.

1996 Ford Ranger xlt manual transmission can"t shift into 3rd and 4th gear


If it grinds when trying to shift, it is the synchronizers. Rebuild. If it pops out of gear. there is a plastic part at the top of the transmission that wears out. It fits around the ball of the shifter. It is two pieces. You'll have to remove the floor plate and pull it up to access the bolts to remove the shifter and replace those plastic pieces.

I have a 1999 Toyota Corolla. Last year, my Dad was driving it when 4th gear kept popping out and he eventually had to physically hold it in gear. Now it can no longer shift into 4th gear, even whil


Most likely it's missing transmission oil. Instead of holding it in, he should have checked the level of oil and added some if needed. Now the transmission is probably damaged and the repair will be much more than just adding oil. Sorry.

Manual Transmission loud metal noise 5th gear doesn't work


check the drain plug magnet for metal bits . If any the box has to come out 4.th gear is straight shaft connection and 5 gear connects from the cluster shaft up to the out put shaft . On either side is a rear main bearing and from your description if that bearing is failed then the 4th gear syncro will not align properly and the gear for 5th will be out of alignment so the syncro to work will not work

2003 chevrolet cavalier, manual transmission lost 2nd, 4th and reverse but still has 1st, 3rd and 5th gears.


Sounds like one of the levers inside the transmission is either broken or otherwise disengaged. Remove the shifter to see if you can see any obvious reason.

When do I use the d 5 gear in acura 2003 tl 3.2 liter


Pretty much all the time!

D3, D4, and D5 are all just *DRIVE* like on any automatic transmission, EXCEPT
that the number next to the D is the "highest gear the automatic transmission will go into".
The Acura just gives you a choice, in case you don't want to go into a higher gear (like if it's slippery traction or a steep hill, etc.)

1 means: Manual gear. FIRST GEAR ONLY.
2 means: Manual gear. SECOND GEAR ONLY.
D3 means: Use automatic transmission, but engine will never shift above 3rd gear.
D4 means: Use automatic transmission, but engine will never shift above 4th gear.
D5 means: Use automatic transmission, but engine will never shift above 5th gear.

Engine is missing when in 4th-5th gear


try having the fuel filter changed first and have the timing checked and I don't know how many miles on the truck but check low or uneven cylinder compression pressure remove spark plugs and test the compression with a gauge but before doing all this it could be a weak or faulty ignition system
