Question about 1994 Mazda MX-3

1 Answer

Mazda Eunos dropping out of gear at speed - clutch or gearbox?

During the cars last outing,travelling at speed ( 5th gear ) or whilst parking (1st), the car transmission was lost. I suspect the clutch had opened but have no confirmation of this only to say that once slowed down to stop, there was no problem in re-engaging the 1st gear and to continue.
What is on the way out ? Is this a possible clutch wear down or worse?

I have a zafira club 1.6 which seems to have no 5th gear. I can enter 5th whilst driving without the clutch. Any ideas please.


because of the close gear ratios and the synchronisation action ,it is possible to change gears without the clutch if the engine rpm's and road speed are close matched. If you put it in 5th gear and the engine rpm's increase without an increase in road speed (gear does not engage) then it is possible that the gear on the out put shaft is stripped. This is a common problem in vehicles where 5th gear is engaged and the vehicle load and speed is excessive inducing excessive wear on the teeth of the gear causing them to fail

Standard transmission wont shift into 1st gear


Hi Eric, If by standard shift you're talking about a manual transmission, check the clutch fluid first. Open the hood (bonnet) and on the fire wall at the back of the engine compartment you will see two reservoirs. One is for the brakes and the other for the clutch. Open the smaller of the two and check the fluid level. If it is empty as I suspect, it means that either the master or slave cylinder is leaking which will mean replacing the defective unit. The other reason could be a defective clutch assembly. To repair the clutch assembly means removing the gearbox and that is a fairly big job. The first job is not very major, but the second is. If you do not like dirty hands it would be better to have a shop do the work, but if you would like to try I'll be here to help. Let me know. Regards John

1994 3000GT VR4 6 speed. Car running hotter than normal, but not up to red line. Where is thermostat? Also transmission problem. Lost reverse. Had my mechanic install used transmission. Now only have 1st,...


With reverse, 5th and 6th not available, I would suspect one or more of the shift cables are not properly connected, or anchored on the transmission. Are you sure that you got a 6 speed VR4 and not the 3000 GT 5 speed?

Clutch slipping or hydraulic system failure AGAIN.


no the problem is the driver ,riding the clutch and resting the foot on it whilst driving ,causing excessive wear and tear ,i would respectfully suggest you buy a vehicle with automatic transmission

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.

Slips out of 1st and 5th


Have you checked your transmission fluid level and your transmission filter? That's a common cause of slippping.

5th gear with 1996 VW Polo


hi mandy
im dave
if it only revs when you put it in 5th gear then it is not in fifth gear. it may look like it but it is not. try moving the gear selector from fourth into neutral releasing the clutch fully then applying the clutch and initiating fifth gear. if that does not work try placing it into one of the other gears first without releasing the clutch and then selecting fifth.
you should be fine driving in four gears as long as you dont travel on the audobahn or at speeds like your on the audobahn. Just watch your redline. try not to go past it. i think it is actually better for your car to drive at higher revolutions than lower as it cleans out your combustion chamber of carbon. on the other hand it is ******* your engine to drive in the red line constantly.
but 3000 rpm in 4th gear probably has you driving 130km/hr (82mph) which should be sufficient and your redline probably does not start until somewhere between 4-5k
