hi from uk could you please give a little more info ? what make/model car ? has this problem occured suddenly? has car been layed up off road some time prior to this unable to select gears ? this problem sounds very much like the clutch drive plate is either stuck to flywheel hence question above ? or it is sticking on primary/spigot shaft for some reason and failing to disengage drive to g/box? how does clutch pedal feel ? you might try selecting 2nd gear with clutch fully pressed and h/brake on then try starting engine if engine starts ?runs then put slight revs on and slip clutch a few times this may work if plate is sticking? if you come back with update may be able to advise further

What causes Soltice to rev up and down shift when climbing hill but loose speed

That is the way gears in cars work. When you go up hill, the car needs more gas, so you put your foot down, kick down comes into play and the gearbox chooses one gear lower, for more engine revs and lower speed you get more torque to climb the hill.

Get the car tuned up, you might have failing sensors or ignition problems causing a general loss of power that is needing kick down on hills.

My speedo has stopped working i had the speed sensor replaced it worked for just 1/2 mile n stopped, local garage said new gearbox does this sound right to u guys

If they mean the speedo gearbox, maybe. I think this works like older cars in which you have a gear on the transmission shaft which drives a gear on the speed sensor, and sometimes the gear on the transmission shaft can break the clip which locates it and it slips out of position. Many transmissions allow removal of back section to gain access to repair this. However, some newer cars have a speed sensor which uses an electromagnet to pick up signal from a internal magnet. Removing the speed sensor from the transmission (easy!) should help determine the cause of your problem.

Can a bad range sensor cause my spedometer not to work and incorrect gear ratios on 2 3 and 4? if now what could it be?

the abs unit tells the ecu and the gearbox the speed and when to change gear if this is not working it could be one of these two the abs unit or the wheel sensor, the wheel sensor there are 4 of them in uk left front wheel is the speedo signal sensor, if abs system is dead i.e saying there is no faults or even connecting to a reader there is a fault. to determine the gear the gearbox needs the signal range sensor incorrect means there is a signal coming to the gear box but its erratic.

2001 Mazda 626 will not engage when I press gas

Check the fluid level!! there are sensors inside the gearbox, starting on a hill would give a different reading to the flat, worth a try, auto wont work properly if fluid has either got too old or level is low

Speedometer is not do you fix?

I had the same fault in my 92 accord. My problem was the speed sensor unit on the gear box. Two 10mm bolts hold the sensor mounted and they are at the rear of the gearbox.

How thick is the wire which goes to the speed sensor on a mk4 golf

should be 2 small ones on the drive unit located on the side
of the gearbox or transmission!
they are not very long b4 they go to the loom connector!
you can test it by removing it from the driven gear that it attaches too then rotating the sensor one full revolution & it should give 10 [ten] pulses use volt meter !
dont forget to align the drive back up to the pin when you replace it!
if it all checks out ok it may be the drive gear in the gearbox!
Cheers Rob.

Purchased a 2002 Land Rover from a local Auction with 72k. The car was sandwiched between 2 cars and the damage was minimal.The SUV starts right up but could only go in reverse.The truck will move on...

I'm guessing that the gearbox speed sensor was damaged in the shunt, this can happen if the gearbox was in park when it happened - causes internal damage to quite a lot of components. The speed sensor tells the gearbox the speed of the input shaft and the transmission control computer then signals the gearbox to change gear accordingly. If this is damaged it could account for the symptoms. Suggest taking to a LR dealer for diagnosis, they should pick up any sensor faults with their plug in diagnosis tools. Whilst it will cost a bit, it will save you a lot of component changing and there are a lot of components to change on a Disco!
