Question about 1991 Mercury Topaz 4 Door

1 Answer

1991 Mercury Topaz with 5-speed will not go into gear.

When the car is off I can push the clutch in and shift into any gear, however, when I turn it on I can not shift into any gear and reverse will just grind. I tried putting it into 1st and 2nd then starting it but the car will lunge forward and quit while the clutch is engaged the whole time.

    That thought has crossed my mind but there is no reason the clutch should be bad. It ran perfectly before stored during the winter months...come spring, it starts right up but will not go into any gear including reverse when the vehicle is running. Maybe a pressure plate problem?? I

I have a 99 ford ranger 5 speed and my gear shift freely moves without pushing the clutch. What will cause that to happen


If the gear shift moves freely and the transmission is turning, I would say the shift lever is not connected to anything, or something inside the trans is broke.
If the trans is not turning, something happened to the clutch.

My 1991 mucury topaz dies when engine is cold and you shift from reverse to forward


If it only does it cold, I would say the idle air control valve may be faulty.
The computer controls idle speed by regulating the amount of air going into the intake with the control valve.
Could also be a vac leak or a problem with the trans.
Will it die if you push on the gas pedal and the brake as you are shifting ?

My clutch wont get hard and i can shift it has a new clutch


The problem is an air problem you must have over looked something .You call the master cylinder what ? This is the one on the pedal checks for leaks on the inside of the vehicle if oil can get out air is getting in Then you say slave cylinder this is at the clutch inside the bell houseing and is the main bleeding point with a fitting to bleed the system . The olny other point is the resiverior unless the system is feed from the break system sometimes it is but not common . The springs are mechincal but the system is hydrolic so look for oil leaking and thats ware air is getting in dubble check it

2002 merc cougar 5 speed, slow to increase speed after it gets up to 20 for me to shift into 2nd gear, as the same jarring motion as when you to good at shifting a standard, the jerking motion. still acts...


sounds to me that your clutch needs to be replaced. There is no adjustment on the clutch pedal. It sounds like the fly wheel will need to be surfaced also.

1987 Topaz, has trouble accelerating.


Most likely it is a transmission problem. Being that old the transmission needs work and possibly the clutch replaced or Throw-out bearing.

Grinding gears from 1st to 2nd, 3rd to 5 ok


Either your clutch is getting bad, or you're shifting down too soon, and up too late. Try double clutching. Push in your clutch and push it into neutral. Release the clutch, fan the gas pedal, push the clutch again and shift into 1st. All this does is sychronize the speed of the transmission with the speed of the engine. There were, in the 60's, a lot of cars with the old "three on the tree" that you had to do this every time, and you get pretty good at it after a while.

Transmision shifting problem


Reverse is not sycronized, this means the gears have to stop to mess and not grind, two thing cause this, being to quick to slam into reverse after clutch is depressed, a problem with the clutch.
