My 1999 nissan maxima 5 speed won't shift from 1st to second gear.


If it goes into other gears correctly, then the issue is likely a synchromesh problem with that particular gear, and the gearbox may have to be stripped.
You may try changing the gear oil first though, as this can often fix the issue without having to spend too much money on unnecessary repairs.

Saturn 1996 SC2 5 speed driverside shifter cable stuck not broken but wont move


Check the linkage at the tranny... make sure that the levers can move. It sounds like they may have messed up their proper positions.

I have a 1997 Saturn SL with a five-speed standard transmission. It suddenly started (seemingly) skipping 1st and 2nd gears. When I'm ready to drive forward and shift the gear-shift lever to (what used...


Take out your middle console and watch your shift cables as your shifting, you may have something stuck or maybe your shift cable bushing has broken. So i would just take the console out, and try shifting in all your gears. And then you will most likely find out what your problem is. :)) Good luck. Hope this helps. I have a saturn too and I LOVE IT!!! Good choice of a car!!! James Booth

I have a saturn sl2 with a 5 speed transmission. i was driving and heard a ping and now 2nd 4th and reverse are gone but i still have 1st 3rd and 5th. i have no idea where to start fixing the problem


If you have inspected the shift linkage and found no missing or loose parts, then unfortunately an internal shift mode fork, syncro assembly,shift rail or possibly a snap ring has been damaged. This is not an easy fix on any vehicle and will require transmission removal to diagnose. Before the trans is removed, inspect the shift linkage while someone moves the gear selector to all gears. This would be the best case scenario, internal damage, of course, would be the worst.

had the same problem 2 months ago. there are 2 shift cables and you have lost 1 of the clips that hold them in place.replace the horseshoe clip and that will solve the problem.

Gear Shift very stiff, doesnt want to go into 1st gear or reverse


Continued operation like this and $100 would have been the cheap fix. If this is a hydraulic clutch, check the fluid level in the clutch master cylinder. Most take Dot 3 brake fluid and it will say on the cap. It is located on the fire wall near brake master cylinder

Gear shift difficulty moving/gear shift stuck in 1st gear


First of all, I need to know whether you will be working on a lift or on jack stands as this will determine if you will just drop the transmission or have to pull the entire engine and then pull the transmission.

Heres what you should do before getting started.

1. Get a Haynes manual from the local AutoZone or any autoparts store.
2. Get to know your local Dodge 5 star dealer phone number as it will be helpful on quick on the fly questions if you need to talk to a mechanic or need to order parts.

Once you answer my first question, then I will let you know where to start, the haynes manual will also be very helpful with pictures while you are working if you get stuck.
