Start with the clutch fluid, is it full? check the clutch cable from the pedal to the transmission, does it have a lot of play in it, is it adjustable? check the bushings on the shifter base, does the shifter itself have a lot of play in it? i'd start with those, if all those are ok then it might be the clutch itself. when a clutch gets worn down it doesn't release fully causing a hard shift or grinding when going into gear. put the truck on a flat surface so it doesn't free roll at all, with the engine off, put the truck in first or reverse, press the clutch pedal fully to the floor and start the engine. let off the brake. if the truck moves at all it means your clutch cable is out of adjustment or its just getting worn out. provifing the shifter and the fluid level is good.

Is it the engine vibrating or the car? If its the car itself it sounds like u need to have the tires checked & balanced.

You may possibly have a defective clutch slave or master cylinder. Get this fixed immediately as it will cause problems with the gear box.

My 1995 tacoma has no reverse shift nice but seems to want to go ahead when i shift it in reverse, doesn't go back at all could this be a shift fork problem


It could be a shift fork issue, do you have 5th gear? If so, most likely is something in reverse gear, or idler gear. At this point, you will be looking at removing, and disassembling the transmission to find the problem.

it sounds like you ground the spacers between the gears. have a look under the gear shift. pull the gear shift off then look at the transmission spacers. you will see where the gear shift sits see if some spacers look like the rest.
