Sounds like a second gear syncro problem. Probably fork selector on syncro is dodgy, could need replacing. If you can do it yourself Take box off and strip it down, buy part and replace worn parts.

You will need to check the gear linkage hasits free movement and the gearbox mounting is secure. This happen on a Polo recently and the securing bolt to the gearbox mounting had fallen off leaving the gearbox hanging. I hope this helps you.

it is going in limp mode,
if your speedometer is not working will cause this,that would be a speed sensor,or the other two reasons would be the input or output sensors on the tranny

Shifting gears wont go, it wont get in or fit right on the dot


? Que? Do you mean that it doesn't select or move freely? Gets too notchy maybe? Has this car done alot of miles? Or just a good lot of gear shifts? All Diahatsu and Yaris have horrible gear selections.. what you COULD do is strip down the gear shift, check the ball on the end of the shifter for scoring, put in a decent grease (into the ball reccess) or sometimes there is heavy wear on the metal part of the shifter, just above the ball, if so, weld back up or if no welder try chemical metal. This will also have the effect of a shorter gear change. ok?

Not selecting 1st gear when stopping at lights


would need a drive to be honest to know whats wrong ,Now in my time cars had no syncro on first or second gear so you had to stop and be stationary to engage first gear which i still do if the cars moving abiet very slowly then i use second but a lot of modern cars like this have out of square engines unlike a old humber or morris with a long stroke engine and a starting handle for a flat battery morning.Now is this not going into gear when moving and ok when stationary or all the time ?

Torque converter is probraly going bad, the automatic gear selector having trouble seeking or going into another gear unless high rpm to select it out to another gear. Could also be your 1gear is getting bad. you may need to take it to the shop as in the long term, it can damage more. You could check to see if fluid is up to level too, as this does happen when it's low in transmission fluid.

check around the selector area at the gearbox and where the shift lever sits to see if a harnes section or wire is getting trapped, chafed, or crushed, or if a plug is being pulled when 2nd is selected. The actual gears and box have NO way to cut the engine out so the moving external parts on the gearbox or shift must be causing an electrical cut out by interfering with nearby components.

The gear stick has no resistance, I can only select two gears and it feels like Im stirring porridge when I do try and select a gear.


i'm unfamilar with the exact car but it sounds like part of your gear selection linkage is broken. This would be the part that is used to select the gears you can't select. I have seen some cars that use two cables, one for 1st and 2nd gear and the second for 3rd and 4th gear. I have also seen cars that use metal rods from the shifter to the transmission much like the cable setup, one rod for 1st and 2nd gear and the other rod for 3th and 4th gear.

Hope this in some way helps.

hi if its just second to thrid then the clutch is slipping on thrid gear look at the boxes oil level is important but look at the colour is it red and tranperant as this is ok if its brown its a sign of the clutches slipping i would try a stall test on thrid gear first and if its ok second gear [manually] see is the engine stalls at the correct rpm if you thinkabout it imagine you are in thrid gear in a manuual box and suddenly drop into second it would be hard shifting it could also be a faulty thrid gear solenoid yates210456
