2003 Ford Focus Manual Transmission problems

I am having a problem with getting my car into 3rd, 4th, 5th and reverse gears. 1st and 2nd work fine but will not go into any other gear. The shifter has been quite loose and wobbly lately.

SOURCE: my ford focus tdi 2003 cant select 1st,3rd or 5th gears.

Car is in limp in mode unless you have the tools to work on automatic transmission you will need to take it to a transmission shop. Of course you can check oil level but I suspect you have other issues.

1996 Ford Ranger xlt manual transmission can"t shift into 3rd and 4th gear


If it grinds when trying to shift, it is the synchronizers. Rebuild. If it pops out of gear. there is a plastic part at the top of the transmission that wears out. It fits around the ball of the shifter. It is two pieces. You'll have to remove the floor plate and pull it up to access the bolts to remove the shifter and replace those plastic pieces.

2003 chevrolet cavalier, manual transmission lost 2nd, 4th and reverse but still has 1st, 3rd and 5th gears.


Sounds like one of the levers inside the transmission is either broken or otherwise disengaged. Remove the shifter to see if you can see any obvious reason.

Ford transmission wines in 1st 2nd 3rd revers, no


It is a 5 speed manual transmission? If it is noisey in all gears except for 4th, then the problem is countershaft bearings.

92 chevy s10 4x4 4.3L manual transmission no 3rd gear


Hi:

Your transmission has 3 shift rails...
1st - 2nd
3rd -4th
5th- Reverse

If your 3rd gear doesn't work , you have an internal transmission problem, such as a syncronizer, or similar fail... There is not much you can fix, without removeing the transmission.

Manual transmission takes effort to put in gear.


Have the clutch looked at. If the clutch is not releasing fully it makes shifting difficult. Have the trans fluid changed too, it isn't expensive and probably is listed under your maintanance in the owners manual
