SOURCE: 300Zx will not shift out of 5th gear

Dear javatrader: There are very few solutions to this problem. The fact that you had mentioned 5th & Reverse, tells me that you problem is has two possibilities. Both relate to the same component.
The shift fork for Fifth gear and reverse are the same as well as the hub which the fork fits over.
When you Move the stick shift, it moves one of 3 rails in the transmission of which one is 5th and reverse. The hub is what locks the transmission in gear. The gears are what are referred to as synchromesh. This means that when you shift from gear to gear, it makes it possible to easily make the transition without the gears grinding while the car is in motion. The synchros are in fact, kind of a "BRAKE" for the gears so that when you go to shift into that gear, the synchronizing ring, slows the gear down enough to match the speed of the counter gear allowing it to engage with it, without grinding. As the hub slides into gear, there are spring loaded "KEYS" which are small pieces of steel about 1/2 inch long, 1/4 inch thick and 1/4 inch wide with a little hump in them to push up into a small cavity machined into the hub when it slides over it, thus locking the gear into place until you pull the stick to move it out of place. If a key pops out, it could cause the gear to stick, not allowing you to pull the hub back because the key has popped out at an angle which prohibits the hub from sliding over it.
Another possible senario: The fork is secured to the shift rail with a part called a "Roll pin". If this part shears, the car will be stick in what ever gear it was in at the time the pin sheared. If the pin shears, the stick will still move out of 5th gear position but the transmission won't.
This problem, unfortunately is not one a layman can fix. This is best left to a professional.
Good luck......If you are pleased with my answer, please write in, that you are satisfied with my answer. I am new in this "FIXYA" group and need more people responding to work my way up the ranks.

SOURCE: I just had someone replace my clutch, master and

Loosen the bleeder screw on the slave cylinder and allow it to gravity bleed, with the cover off the master. DO NOT pump the pedal while you do this and make sure you don't allow the master cylinder to get run dry. Watch for bubbles coming out of the slave when you are getting a steady stream or steady drip, no air, tighten the bleeder. Now fill the master to the proper level, some have a full line down in the reservoir, put the cap on the master and try the clutch, you may have to pump the pedal a bit, maybe a dozen or two times, to get the clutch to work right. I've done it this way, lots of times, on all kinds of vehicles it seems to work for me. If it won't gravity bleed you may have to get a piece of clear plastic line that will fit snug on the bleeder and try to syphon it. Use clear plastic line so you don't get brake fluid in your mouth, you can see the fuild coming. You can buy that line at most hardware stores I suggest about 6 feet or so.

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.

Why does Nissan 140 Bakkie engine cuts out the moment I move the gear lever into reverse.


If the reversing lamp has a short on it, it will draw too much power when you enter reverse and the ignition will stop working. Or you have a broken wire, somewhere.

Is it going in gear, but vehicle just doesn't move, or you can't get it to go into the "reverse" or "5th" gear location? If you can't get it to go into the selected area (reverse or 5th gear spot) then I would guess you you will need to pull the top cover off, and slide the "fork" back onto the shaft. I have seen this happen before. I guess if my response wasn't helpful, I would elaborate a little more about your problem.

I have a 96 sl1. I only have 1st,3rd and 5th gear. If I try 2nd 4th and Reverse, it's like they aren't even there. Is it my linkage cable? And should I get a new transmission?


This does sound more like a bad cable. You'll need to find the shift tower on the transmission and have someone move the shift so you can see if it moves when trying to put it in the bottom gears.

Hi On driving a Suzuki Vitara JLX 96 P Reg


Sounds like a clutch problem to me.
So, with the engine off, can you select all gears? If yes, your gearbox is probably OK.
And now with the engine idling, can you select any gears with out crunching? If this is difficult, then try this next test in an area where movement forward or backwards won't be a problem.
With the engine OFF, foot ON the clutch, the handbrake OFF, and in 1st gear, start the car. BE READY TO TURN IT OFF.
If the car moved forward as you cranked the engine, then your clutch is not adjusted properly or has worn out. That is more-than-likely the smell you got before - burnt clutch disc from it slipping.
You can drive it, but every time you want to start off, you'll have to turn the engine off, select 1st then start the engine. Accelerate slowly, making sure the revs don't rise faster that you're speeding up, and change gear by judging engine revs between gears.
Don't keep driving it as it is, as you WILL have gearbox problems if you don't fix the clutch.

Reverse lights stay on all the time, even when the car is in park or a different gear (1st through 5th). Any solutions?


On the side of your transmission will be a switch with several wires coming out of it. This is your reverse switch that turns on your reverse lights and most likely needs to be replaced
