When changing from auto to stick shift, don't forget to install a pilot bushing into the rear of the crankshaft. It's a real bummer when you do everything else right and forget this small part...ask me how I know!

2005 Corolla's manual trasmission shifts gears, it clunks


hi mate , sounds like the SPIGOT bearing its a little bearing that allows the gearbox to be at a different seed than the engine flywheel and if this is in bad condition it will take the gearbox front shaft to a higher speed than comfortable for gearshift , in the meantime when you go for 1st or reverse gear just engage a gear like 4th without taking your foot off the clutch and then go for 1st or reverse, this will stop the gearbox spining long enough for a smooth shif, oNLY USE THIS METHOD WHILE STaTIONARY and see a professional when you get time.

I have a 1988 jaguar xj6. The car will not go into a drive gear, but it will go into reverse. Why? Please advise


first thoughts are check your auto transmission fluid level (with engine running with car on level ground) and linkage to gearbox.

Transmission problems (gear linkage)


The gear linkages are not correctly aligned.
Is the gearbox mounting in exactly the same place as when you removed it?
Even a 1/4 inch will offset the gears.
hope this helps

Automatic gearbox


Service the transmission fluid and filter, this may be an issue of a dirty filter and worn out trans fluid, use one of the newer synthetic fluids.
