I can shift into any gear but only first is engaged.


One of the gearstick joints has disconnected - hopefully not actually inside the gearbox. Gearstick connects to gearbox via a few rods & joints or a pair of cables in sheaths. Check something visibly moves near the gearbox no matter what movement the gearstick makes.

Nissan Pulsar N14 Manual Gearstick Rattles


This is common for that transmission, it will eventually lead to 5th gear POPOUT, where it will actually pop itself out of 5th gear... I would get a second opinion to be sure, but looks like a rebuild is near maybe.. :(

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!)

Manual gearbox query


hi fro uk this is a common problem on many cars not just hyundai and ita most common cause of synchro mesh failure on2nd and 3rd gear is believe or not a bad driving habit! it goes like this when you set off in 1st then cange up 2nd gear whilst accellerating holding gearstick? in back position then change up 3rd gear still holding gearstick! in a forward position then? when up to 4th gear we let go of gearstick?? now just by holding g/stick whilst in 2nd and 3rd the slightest pressure also brings the synchro ring into play whilst gear already selected! so inevitably the synchro ring wears away to extent that they no longer work properly so the gearbox is none synchromesh on 2nd 3rd gears and on occasions? on 5 speed box 4th gear can become a victim ? hope you understand ? just quietly observe some peoples habits with manual boxes? as for repairs?cost? this is not a difficult job to replace all synchro rings but box has to be stripped and assesed ? the cost could escalate? but if you want quick turnround? a matter of hours? a recon box with warranty? is other option ? BUT would not advise risking a 2nd hand box probably worse or same as ? whichever choice you take you can check clutch at same time if milage is high? now some good advice! personally this is not a dire problem just a niggleproblem which if you take time in changing gears you can o/come gritty gear change save money for now till it is more affordable ? if you know any old timers truck drivers ? these are the guys who will show you how to drive /change gears none synchro mesh before it was ever invented ? hope this helps daughter but practice on gears and rid of the bad driving habit so many do not realise they have will make her a better experienced!driver
