Getting into reverse and 5th gear can be difficult if the "lollipop" flexible link is seperating a quick fix if this is the problem is to drill through in the centre and place a nut and bolt through and tighten up

These gearboxes were notorious for failing the reverse gear. The reverse gear wears out easily and keeps popping out. You can try shifting the gearbox into 3rd gear before going into reverse. This helps align the syncros in the tranny. Of course make sure you are not moving or if you are have the clutch depressed when shifting. You can also try http://www.international-auto.com/ for parts. They may be able to help you.

Fiat x19 1.5 unoturbo motor & gear box, how do I adjust the gear cables on gear box , as I cannot get 1st gear , I do have clutch , and installed new clutch & master cylinlinders. There are two...


were the master cylinders bled when you installed them..if not the clutch is not fully releasing..this will keep the gears turning and the syncronizers will not allow first or reverse as these are both extremely low and the car needs to almost be completely stopped..before they will go in..

Engaging reverse gear


If WD-40 helped the problem then the bushes and linkage should be inspected for wear/adjustment and rust as the WD-40 is a temporary lubricant. Check it asap as the problem needs repair.

When u come out reverse the gear stick goes stiff, hard to go back into first gear. been advised might be a pin, found piece of plastic under gear stick cover round shaped.


Hi,
Fiats do not enjoy a sound reputation for their transmissions. If you are confident in your skills, remove the cover / boot that surrounds the gear stick. and check it carefully for fitting into the housing. There may be a plastic of fibre cup that the ball of the gear stick rides in. depending on the locating device for this "bearing" will affect the movement of the gear stick. If you can lift the gearstick and it shows lots of slop, then the 'bushing is no longer holding the gearstick in the correct neutral position which enables each gear, including reverse, to be selected easily. The reason for the 'bushing' failing will have to be ascertained, it may be a simple fix, or it may be lots of aggravation, depending if the parts are all present and can be salvaged.

Good luck.

I have a Fiat Palio 2002 and off late I find the gear shift getting stuck - means I cannot change gear when the engine is running. The gear is smooth when the engine is off.


the clutch plate is burnt and needs replacing.. Thats why it works when the car is cool or aint running. as soon as it gets hot,, the seal of the metal has burnt out.. meaning the metal binds making it hard to shift.. Change the clutch play,, you'll be fine!
