There is one of 2 problems that will give this indication. The first is the gear lever end in the shift rail has moved out of the slot and is behind the slot and not moving it . This can be checked by removing the lever mount from the top of the box and physically moving the shift rail back into the neutral position then replacing the gear lever back into the selector gate and moving the rail again.. The second possible fault is that the selector fork has come loose on the rail and is not moving the gear (just sliding on the rail) If that is the case the box will have to come out unless you can see the selector fork and the lock screws from the top of the box when the lever mount is removed.. If you can move the selector rod forward and tightening up the lock screw then pulling it back to neutral. Repeat until the fork is back in neutral position and lock it up. Most lock screws have a hole and there is wire tied around the shaft to prevent the screw coming loose. If the box has been reconditioned at some time then it is possible that the person doing the job neglected the wire bit.

Testimonial: "Thanks for the answer, you were spot on. I followed gear linkage down and found it had come off. I had gearbox reconditioned a while back and they must have forgotten to put the locking plate on. all sorted now and no more problems with the gears. Thanks again"

SOUNDS LIKE THE CLUTCH FRICTION PLATTE NEEDS REPLACING - YOU MIGHT BE LUCKY THOUGH AS SOME OF THE RENAULTS HAD A CLUTCH CABLE WHICH MAY HAVE BROKEN OR BEEN OVER STRETCHED, THIS IS A MUCH CHEAPER AND EASIER JOB TO DO & ANY COMPETENT PERSON CAN CHANGE IT

Renault traffic van that has no power until turbo starts to boost. Some times when i labour the engine at low revs the glow plug light will come on too? Any idea's?? Thanks


i've got trafic 100dci 2001 year-had poor exceleration upto 2000 revs then turbo cut in,also at speed-mainly uphill the power would start to pulse(like small jerks forward)until it ran out of steam-80ish,changed egr valve-didn't fix it! then tested air flow meter and found figures incorrect,so replaced,also tested the tubo rod(down the back of the engine -visible with air filter housing removed)this was very stiff,so used wd40 to clean then spray oil to lube and worked the rod backward and forward until it moved freely.put all back together and that was it-back to normal-hooray!! have to point out that the van will not rev past 3700 revs when it is loaded-it has a load sensor,unloaded or partly loaded it will rev to I think about 4100 revs(don't quote me on that though) do hope this will help whoever and God bless

2001 Hyundai Tiburon will not go in reverse, but drives fine otherwise.


Hi There,

As demonstrated in the test drive of the vehicle, the Tiburons gearstick has a little groove just passed the crown. Starting in nuetral - lift groove up and put it into the reverse position (where gear 6 is normally) by doing this lift you take the gear box to a second level. to move out of reverse simply take the gearstick and return it to nuetral then into first gear, you are now able to drive forward.

Hope this helps,

Cheers Buckaroo,
Chris.

Battery fully charged but car will not start


Do you have ignition lights.? Starter solenoid may be stuck, put car in 1st gear & rock it backwards & forwards, select neutral & try starting normally. Have you tried giving it a push & bump starting, if it runs then you got starter motor issue.

Bushes missing from gear stick and transfer stick


If it's a later model (post 98), then I have an idea what's happened. On the rounded ball end of the gear stick that goes in the box, there is meant to be a plastic bush that is only a very loose fit on the end of the stick. If it has dropped while either removing or replacing the gearstick, and fallen into the area at the back of where the gearstick actuates the shift rail, then apart from having a very sloppy gearstick, you won't be able to move the shift rail backwards - which is what happens when you move the gearstick forward (1st,3rd,5th). This should be fixable from in the cab. Of course, if you have an earlier model, none of the above applies, as you have the gearstick moving only one of a choice of three shift rails with no bush in that area. The only thing that happens to those is the spring on the gearstick breaks (that can't be replaced on its own!)
