Another factor that could affect your problem is the hydrolic fluid. there is a valve body inside the gearbox which controlls the gears. so lets say the vavle that controlls first gear dont open then the hydrolic fluid wont activate first gear. i think when u revv the engine it is increasing the hydrolic pressure which is aiding the vavle to open. the problem could be in the valve controll modual.

When put into reverse and gas is pressed car goes nowhere but revs up when car is put in drive and revs to 4000 RPM it just inches forward. Any idea why?


If it's an automatic, is there fluid in the transmission? If the fluid is ok, the transmission is bad. If it's a straight stick, the clutch is bad.

Fiat grande punto gear box problem


I found this on Honest Johns website:
One of the gearsets has slipped slightly down one of the rods. Requires dismantling of the gearbox to fix it, which is expensive, so try to live with it or offload the car.

(Personally, I think offloading a dodgy car is NOT an answer, unless you fess up at the time of sale!)
I would ask the dealer for an estimate, based on the above. Assuming it to be the case!

Gear box selection only 1and 4 on my fiat punto


It sounds like the external gear linkages and bushes are either worn or have popped off, not an expensive repair. Use somebody you trust I have heard countless times of people ripped off for gearbox replacements when in fact it was a cheap easily replaced part. Do not rule out an internal problem though, gear selector forks can bend and break. Try the cheap option first.

Can only go forward when red gearbox light come on dash


i know these have a common problem with the spindles from the gearbox locating into flyheel for corroding badly and seizing up sounds if you need new spindle to solve this problem also think you are catching it a early stage suggest getting this looked at.
