Question about 1996 Ford Escort 4 Door
Tried to change the speedo drive that sits in the top of the gear box and it slipped into the gear box.couldnt get it out so we drained the oil and took the gear box off.on replacing it all the car will now not find 5th gear and reverse.any solutions to the problem.
This may simply be a case that the gear linkage is twisted too far round to the right, so that when the lever is pushed as far to the right as it can be, its not actually pushing the gearbox over far enough.
Try slackening the clamp bolt(s) and twising the shaft 1-2mm in one direction (the direction that moving the lever to the left is) If its no different or worse, twist it 2-3mm in the opposite direction.
