SOURCE: 92 Honda Accord, 5 speed, hard shifting into first & second gear.

First thing to do,try to pump your clutch before you shift into 1st gear then if you feel makes better, most probably you have problem with your hydraulic clutch system, check the clutch line if there is an evidence of fluid leaking or it could be internal leak.

Second thing to do, check your transmission oil, may be it' s too old or you use a thick oil thats why when cold its hard to shift then when the engine rich the normal temperature(warm) the oil become thin and the shifting will smooth. Remember the very old oil become thicken and the purity is gone and can cause of hard shifting. in this regards i suggest you to change the transmission oil and check the used oil if there is small peace of metals, then you are in big trouble,

SOURCE: Hard Clutch and 1st and 2nd Gear Shifting is hard

The clutch bearing is supposed to have a groove on the inside where it slides on the shaft That groove is supposed to have a heavy grease applied to it to prevent the bearing running dry on the collar it slides on.Regardless of your driving style, that grease is intended to remain there for the life of the clutch, (generally every clutch I have ever replaced still had some remaining lube there unless the bearing itself failed from a material defect which caused it to overheat and cause that grease to then run out of the retaining groove) I'm not there and can't see the old parts, but in my opinion the first clutch may have failed partially because of your lack of skill in using a stick shift vehicle but the second failure obviously is not your fault if the information you have posted is correct.
Good luck

SOURCE: car will not shift out of second gear. while

it is going in limp mode,
if your speedometer is not working will cause this,that would be a speed sensor,or the other two reasons would be the input or output sensors on the tranny

SOURCE: suburban transmission hard shifting from first to second only

How long have you owned it? Is it possible there is a shift kit installed for towing? Was there something that was done just before it started doing this? A tune up perhaps?

Why does Stabilitrak Off fault light come on when trying to pass a car?


I have a 2008 model. I am assuming the stabilitrak button(on my SUV) located next to the geer shift is turning the stabilitrak system
on and off OK? If not maybe just this switch is bad?
Unfortunately my stabilitrak alarm indicator has started coming on
periodically too. Mine seems to get reset after driving it for some
time then stopping and restarting after several short trips. I'm not
sure if mine is a real issue if it goes away after a while of driving.
The last time my "check engine" light came on also. When the
traction control alarm went away, so did the check engine alarm.
Good luck.

I keep getting a message service stabilitrak


StabiliTrak Indicator Light: If the warning light does not come on then, have it fixed so it will be ready to warn you if there is a problem. If it stays on, or comes on when you are driving, there may be a problem with your StabiliTrak system and your vehicle may need service. When this warning light is on, the system is off and will not limit wheel spin. Adjust your driving accordingly.

This light will also flash when the StabiliTrak system is active. If the StabiliTrak system warning light comes on and stays on for an extended period of time when the system is turned on, your vehicle needs service.

The traction control part of StabiliTrak can be turned off by pressing and releasing the StabiliTrak button if both systems (traction control and StabiliTrak) were previously on. To disable both traction control and StabiliTrak, press and hold the button for five seconds.

Traction control and StabiliTrak can be turned on by pressing and releasing the StabiliTrak button if not automatically shut off for any other reason.

When the TCS or StabiliTrak system is turned off, the StabiliTrak light and the appropriate TCS off or StabiliTrak off message will be displayed on the DIC to warn the driver. Your vehicle will still have brake-traction control when traction control is off, but will not be able to use the engine speed management system.

If the StabiliTrak and/or Traction Control are not operating properly, I encourage you to take your vehicle in for inspection. A certified technician will be able to offer a more accurate diagnosis.

Gear shift Selector stuck


These were known for having faulty brake light switche that would cause that problem as well as cruise control inop. I would check that first. It operates the shift-lock solenoid which releases the shifter. There were also some problems with the ignition switches, but mostly on the gm cars.

Stabilizer


If you have a scan tool that can read data and codes, plug it in and see if there are any DTCs set in the engine computer. A lot of times, the stabilitrak light will start coming on like that when there's really a problem in the engine. It's worth a shot to check it out. I've seen engine misfires cause what you're describing. If you can get a scan tool that reads engine data, check out your misfire counter data. See if there are any history misfires, and if there are, which cylinder has the history misfires. See if the current misfire counter shows misfires when the condition is occurring.

My service stabletrack keeps come on how to fix that


Hi there:

Your vehicle is equipped with StabiliTrak, which combines antilock brake, traction and stability control systems and helps the driver maintain directional control of the vehicle in most driving conditions.
Traction control activates when the controller senses wheel spin. StabiliTrak will selectively apply the brakes and reduce engine torque to help regain traction.


Stability control activates when the controller senses a discrepancy between your intended path and the direction the vehicle is travelling. StabiliTrak selectively applies braking pressure at any one of the vehicle's brakes to help guide the vehicle in the direction which you are steering.


When you first start your vehicle and begin to drive away, the system performs several diagnostic checks to insure there are no problems. You may hear or feel the system working. This is normal and does not mean there is a problem with your vehicle. If driving conditions delay system initialization, the STABILITRAK NOT READY message may be displayed. If this is the case, your vehicle does not need servicing.


When the StabiliTrak system is both on and actively controlling the stability of the vehicle, the StabiliTrak light will blink for the duration of the event.


You may also feel or hear the system working. This is normal.
StabiliTrak will turn off automatically if a problem is detected in the system. The StabiliTrak light will come on and SERVICE STABILITRAK will be displayed on the DIC. For vehicles without a DIC, the StabiliTrak light and the StabiliTrak service light will both come on. If the SERVICE STABILITRAK message (or StabiliTrak service light) does not clear itself after restarting the vehicle, you should see your dealer for service.


Hope this helps.

My car is 2007 chevy suburban 5.3 llitter and i get stabilitrack of light is on at idleing and when i go higher rpm it turns off.and cuple days ago i had check engine light on and the code was missfire...


Hi. It is possible that the stabilitrak light is only an indicator to another problem. The main issue is the condition of your engine. When there is a check engine light, a code usually sets. The stabilitrak system doesnt function well if it detects that the engine master(the ECM) is not feeling well. Better have your vehicle scanned to determine the exact source of engine fault, and the stabilitrak will improve in effect. Okay? : )

We keep getting a message stabilitrak off, service stabilitrak then low engine power and I can't go above 40mph. Sometimes it clears after I turn off the vehicle and sometimes I can't drive it for a day....


I AM HAVING THE SAME PROBLEM BUT MINE ONLY COMES ON WHEN I AM IN GEAR, IDLEING AT A STOPLIGHT OR IN A DRIVE THRU. TOOK IT TO GM AND THEY ARE TELLING ME IT IS A "P0300 AND P0301" CODES WHICH SAYS IT A VALVE TRAIN MIS-FIRE ( TO FIX IT IS A 2000.00 HEAD JOB) AND THAT IS WHY THE STABILITRAK AND ENGINE LIGHT COMES ON!!! IN MY RESEARCH SO FAR I HAVE FOUND NOTHING THAT TIES THE TWO TOGETHER.
I HAVE 102,000 MILES ON MINE AND IT RUNS PERFECT AND MPG IS THE SAME AS THE DAY I GOT IT. I WILL KEEP YOU UP ON WHAT FURTHER I FIND. I AM NOW IN CONTACT WITH THE GM DISTRICT SUPERVISOR.
