SOURCE: VW Golf 3 jumping out of gears

Sounds like a stripped reverse gear. And for the second gear probally need a new gear (1st 2nd) and the syncros with a new hub. If too much metal from the gears has already made it's way around in the bearings through the transmission oil you might be looking at a new transmission. The Golf 3 generation had many problems with reverse gears. Sorry to be the one to tell you.

SOURCE: I only have 3rd and 4th gear, 1st 2nd and 5th are

Purchase a gear shift repair kit for your car. They are pretty cheap. About 20 bucs. The ball and bushings are probably worn.

SOURCE: I cant put my car into first, second or reverse gear

u need to adjust the shift linkage cables, the adjustment is made at the trans end of the shift cables, very involved, u will need a repair manual to get it right and also a possible set of new shift cables as well..

SOURCE: 1998 volkswagen jetta won't go into gear

Sounds like the clutch cable or spring has gone, but seeing as it went gradually probably the spring. It basically means that the clutch plate isn't lifting from against the big end, the grinding noise being the fact that you're forcing the car in to gear when the input shaft is still spinning. If you don't know how to take the gearbox off yourself then take it to a dealer, the way to get it to drive for now would have to be to start the car in first, or have someone bump it, the carefully work your way in to third by matching the gears before pushing the gearstick in. This is quite difficult and can do damage to your gearbox so be careful if you do this, otherwise get it towed.

Problems selecting 1st gear peugeot 106 1.1 zest


If the clutch is a problem you will have difficulty selecting 1st only as the gears would be spinning from the engine revs.. I would say that the front input shaft (clutch shaft) bearing is failing allowing miss alignment of the synchros and not allowing proper engagement of the gears synchro rings. It means removal and repair to the gear box so the clutch can be inspected while the box is out.

Have you any ideas what i should check next?


Even though your shifter doesn't show 1st gear, your transmission will start out in 1st, then shift into 2nd at around 10-15mph. If you start out with shifter in 2nd, you should feel the gear change.
About all the average person can do with automatics is check the fluid, and possibly drop the pan and change filters. sometimes that helps with slipping or balky transmissions, but not always.
Good luck, Bill. Maybe somone else has some ideas?

1998 Dodge Grand Caravan will not shif into 2nd


Most likely the second gear section of the transmission has gone bad. There are 3 or 4 different gear sections or assemblies in an automatic transmission, when they go bad, they go bad.

Transmission


The 5r55w transmisson is known for wearing out the case where the front and middle band servo pins go thru. If it wore the front band servo, it would slip in 2nd. But if it slips in 1st and 2nd it sounds like it could be a weak forward clutch. How many miles does it have on it. If you can get it up into the higher gears, does it slip in 5th. 2nd and 5th use the same band to apply them. Are you gettting and overdrive off light flashing? IF yes, what codes?
