Clutch is not disengaging enough, probably when hot.
If this is hydraulic clutch, try bleeding the system.

  1. Remove the bleeder screw cover from the clutch slave cylinder (7A508) and attach a hose to the bleeder screw.
  1. Place the other end of the hose in a container.
  1. Slowly pump the clutch pedal (7519) several times.
  1. With the clutch pedal depressed, loosen the bleeder screw to release the fluid and air.
  1. Tighten the bleeder screw.
  1. Repeat steps 3 through 5 until no air bubbles appear in the fluid.

SOURCE: Standard transmission will not go into gear!

Does that have a hydraulic clutch pedal or is it mechanical.If you don't know if you pump the clutch pedal about 10 times and you feel it getting harder and you can then put it into gear its hydraulic.Check under the hood on the drives side by the brake reservoir and you should see a little like see through little reservoir with a black cap or rubber cap..Pop that of and see if that is full.If its not than you have a leak in the hose that goes down to the slave cylinder or the slave cylinder is bad..You can look in front of the trans at the bottom as maybe see the leak if one..You can put some brake fluid in that little reservoir.Fill it up the pump your clutch pedal a few times to see if that helps putting into gear while car is running.If all that checks out.Your more than likely going to ned a clutch installed...

SOURCE: automatic transmission sounds like it stuck in 3rd gear

You need to check the transmission fluid level, if it is low the tranny will not shift. If, however, the fluid is to the proper level then you will need a new transmission.
Try putting new fluid in and look for a leak in the pan gasket, then all you may need is a transmission service. When the service is done the mechanic will look for pieces of metal in the old fluid, if found this is very bad and you will need a new tranny.
You might consider a new or used car, you can definately find a good deal out there!

Cant shift into gears


Is it an Automatic or Standard transmission? Your description of the problem is very confusing. An automatic does not have a throwout bearing. The clutches or disks on an automatic are not for the average Joe to mess with. Please let us know what you're working with.

Isuzu trooper gearbox problems


You need to be a bit more specific when describing your problem. By "not getting any gears" do you mean (A) the shift lever will not move into position to select a gear?, or (B) shifts into gear position, but does not move? For (A), try reverse (it is not synchronized); Do you get a grinding of gears sound when you try to engage it? If so, this sounds like a problem with the hydraulic clutch release system. If it gets low on fluid, it will not release enough to let you put it in gear. top off the reservoir(tiny 1/2 cup sized one on driver side fender under hood below and to the right of the brake master cylinder) and frantically pump the clutch pedal about 100 times (that\'s right, 100!)
If the tranny goes into gear but the vehicle won\'t move, this sounds like either the clutch disc is worn too thin to grab, or something is broken in the driveline. Try locking the hubs and putting it into 4WD and see if it moves then. If so, then the rear wheel driveline or driveshaft has a problem. Good luck!

Pickup starts great, goes into all gears but won't move. It's like it is still in nutural.


Assuming the pickup is an automatic, check the transmission fluid. The #1 cause for transmission slippage is lack of Automatic Transmission Fluid.

If the pickup is a standard shift, the pin that connects the shift to the transmission has likely broken. You would still be able to shift from the inside but the gears won't engage. A bad clutch is also a possibility but you would have noticed a burning smell prior to the clutch giving out.

My problem is that the manual transmission is stuck in 4th gear. I was backing up when I went to put it into 1st the shifter was stuck. The clutch works to disengage the gears but the shifter won't...


That cylinder is known as the clutch slave cylinder. It should push against the clutch fork every time the clutch pedal is depressed to allow gear changes. If it doesn't, suspect a faulty slave cylinder, or clutch master cylinder.

I am having a gear shifting problem with my Kia Sportage (4x4 Gasoline engine, 2009 version). taking off from an incline drive it is difficult to shift from first to second gear (grinding noise). Also...


Check your clutch fluid box located by your breaks master cylinder. Your clutch works like your breaks in that when you press the clutch pedal it uses hydraulics to disengage your clutch plate. If it's low or not working properly your clutch plate won't fully disengage and could lead to more problems.

My car is stuck is stuck in idol it wont go in to gear it just grinds


I an assuming that since it grinds that this is a standard shift transmission. If so, your slave or master cylinder for your clutch has either failed or leaked out, or both. Try adding some brake fluid to your Clutch master cylinder and pump vigorously to purge any bubbles. If you can engage your transmission after this, you will need to have the hydraulic clutch system bled. Until that time you will need to pump several times between gear changes to use the vehicle.

Transmission gets stuck in gear


Try adjusting your clutch as it is clearly not disengaging properly in second, you might also try adjusting your shift linkage.
