It could be the throttle position sensor

I HAVE A MICRA 2005 MODEL WITH NO POWER. WHEN THE CAR IS IN NEUTRAL CAR REVS FINE, THE MOMENT YOU SELECT 1ST GEAR ENGINE LABOURS AND REVS UP VERY SLOWLY AND DOESNT REV PASED 4000 RPM PLEASE ADVISE


possible selector problem when you push forward for 1st your are actually pushing into 3rd, try starting car from 2nd gear and see if it stalls as that would mean you are hitting 4th. usually a car can pull off in second gear ok. if this is the case go to a dealer to sort this out. as your gear selector is not aligning up correctly. if this is not the case the engine could be losing compression but that seems less likely.

I have a zafira club 1.6 and I have no 5th gear I can enter 5th whilst driving without clutch and it still revs. If I run the car at 3500 revs in 4th im only doing 55 to 60 and I dont like the idea of it...


Possibly gear linkage slipped out of sync under car can.you get all other gears if not maybe more serious like the fifth gear synchromesh is broken in gearbox?

Problems selecting 1st gear peugeot 106 1.1 zest


If the clutch is a problem you will have difficulty selecting 1st only as the gears would be spinning from the engine revs.. I would say that the front input shaft (clutch shaft) bearing is failing allowing miss alignment of the synchros and not allowing proper engagement of the gears synchro rings. It means removal and repair to the gear box so the clutch can be inspected while the box is out.

Sounds like you have worn gearbox selector linkages and I suggest that you get someone to take a look at them PRONTO.

Hi,

This might be because of the gear box problem. By any chance, did your car face flooding? In such cases, please drain the gear box and replace it with new gear fluids. Also, check if you go in low speeds, you might be able to engage it with ease. Please come back to me if you feel this doesnt solve your issue.

Regards,
Hari

02 jeep liberty won't shift into 3rd or 4th gear.


Ratio codes generally indicate a pressure loss & slipping which the computer reads as a gear ratio problem. Likely you need a rebuild.

When going throught the gears forward sometimes it takes more muscle to change particularly 3 to 4 or 4 to 5 ..... sometimes it is easy to change gear and sometimes it seems to take more effort ....kind of...


try double clutching(come out of 3rd then push clutch twice b-4 going to 4th. if this works your clutch slave may be weak or pressure plate is worn. Try shifting from 1st-3rd if engine revs like your in neutral replace clutch. when going 1st-3rd engine should catch and cause vehicle to buck&stumble. (check level of clutch master cylinder)
