Question about Cars & Trucks

1 Answer

I have a 1999 ford fiesta. Occasionally when trying to change gear it is extremely difficult to engage, accompanied by a crunching sound, mainly 1st and reverse but only when the engine is running. Also it gets stuck in gear whilst driving. Is this a clutch problem or gearbox or hydraulics and how much can i expect to pay to have repairs?

Sound like you need a new clutch or pressure plate. Also check fluid line and hydralics to clutch area.

Hi There.
sounds like your release bearing has either collapsed or seized, either way you will have to drop the gear box and check it out... should'nt be a problem on a 1999 fiesta. just be careful not to pop a drive shaft and lose the transmission fluic on the floor.
Good Luck

My 2004 audi s4 makes gronchy noise when i put it in to 2nd gear when cold whats causing it?


If I've understood your problem correctly.....when changing from 1st gear into second the box is giving a metal on metal crunching sound?
  • This would be the syncromesh ring which is not equalizing the speed correctly.
  • The problem usually happens when there is wear on the same part.
  • Check to make sure that the correct transmission fluid has been used in the box.
  • To alleviate the problem and delay the time when it will require attention, use the double de- clutch method of changing gears, especially when the transmission is cold.
  • The double de-clutch is carried out in the following way.
  1. When in gear and changing from 1st gear to 2nd, change into neutral and release the clutch and then depress again before selecting 2nd gear....It is not required to rev the engine in the neutral position when changing up....
  2. When changing down rev the engine when the shift lever is in neutral for each change.
You'll soon get the hang of it and stop the crunching sound, protecting the box at the same time....

HI,

It seems that the automatic choke may have given up which will cause it to stall when cold, could also cause the problems with the gear change as it won't produce enough pressure for the auto system, unless this happens when it's not cold as well.

Cheers.
