I have a case 580 backhoe and when you push the clutch down and try to put it in forward or reverse it grinds and wont go in gear


Just a guess from an old shadetree mechanic: pedal pressure is wrong-too weak, or the clutch pressure plate bolted to the flywheel is bad. They will wear on the fingers and the plate's springs can wear. There should be a Case repair facility at a dealership, anywhere close? A mechanic familiar with your case 580, they often don't mind talking a bit over the phone about a mechanical problem. I meant by pedal pressure-I don't know if the rig is hydraulic clutch or mechanical linkage or cable operated, but check if the clutch pedal can be adjusted. On a hydraulic clutch with a clutch master cylinder and an associated slave cylinder, there is no adjustment. You just have to keep the reservoir full of dot-3, or dot-4 brake fluid. So that's my guess, something wrong with the pedal, or worse, something wrong with the pressure plate. You definitely need a second opinion. Good luck.

1990 toyota camry wont go into gear or slips out


Could be a long list of things.
Its too late for a filter change. Doing that now would probably make matters worse.
The trans uses electric solenoids and a pump to apply pressure to the clutches. So either could be faulty given the age and mileage.
I'm not sure if the shifting problem is connected to the shift indicator lights problem.
You may need to take it to a trans shop to find out for sure. And they will not want to touch it with that many miles on it.
A regular mechanic might be able to do a pressure test on it to at least find out if it is the pump or not.

I bought a 92 Chev 2500 4X4 from a guy just recently. He said the tranny wont go into gear. I found the transfer case was in neutral. So i put it in gear and away it goes. But reverse seamed sluggish. ...


If your transmission is a 700r4 (4l60) you have a reverse band that engages when you want to go in reverse. since it drives forward your low reverse clutch and your fwd clutch are working. This leaves the band which was probably slipping now is not engaging.

Fiesta started making noises either gearbox or clutch? clunks going in to reverse, shudders driving off in 1st gear


sounds like your clutch is going out, is it hard to put in gear with clutch all the way depressed? could also be the sinkronyzer going out, could be the gears in the transmission also going bad. need to check the fluid in the transmission.

Auto tranny slipping after shifting out of second


Firstly is it slow for reverse, reverse clutch also engages in 3rd gear however reverse has a boosted circuit (more psi) therefore will engage rev but not 3rd but it is a little slow for reverse.
They do have a tendancy to pop a ball out of the High and reverse clutch giving this symptom.

No reverse for 1995 Saab 900s


This is almost certainly the case. The gears selector on the gearbox is worked by rods connected to the gear lever and minor mispositioning (often when you have had a clutch change) will cause this issue. Reverse always seems to be affected most by this issue. You might be aboe to fix it yourself, but without a little knowledge you could of course make it worse. I wouldn't spend out on a SAAB dealership to fix this though, a confident and competent local mechanic will probably sort it out for you at a much reduced cost.
