What's the problem if the car is not shifting? It's just shifting to park, neutral, and drive but not shifting to second gear or higher.. also the speedometer is not working..


possible cause is the torque converter clutch servo/solenoid
changing on the indicator but no drive through the gear box
run the fault codes and check for problem clutch servo/ solenoid or transmission control module
check all wiring and connections to transmission

2001 Camry 5 speed. It starts but it will not move. I can change gears without pushing in clutch. One mechanic said it was clutch and a different one said transmission is out. Which is it?


The clutch is not transferring power to the gearbox, which then is not turning, so that you can select gears without the clutch.Possibilities are
- clutch assembly has failed, possibly by the splined driven plate hub coming adrift
- clutch driven plate has become very worn and has lost contact
- slave cylinder has stuck through corrosion (assuming a hydraulic clutch) and is holding out the clutch independent of the pedal. This can be determined by watching it while someone depresses and raises the pedal.

I think it is unlikely the transmission input shaft has fractured.

Transmission


it sound like you have a clutch problem, check if it is a cable clutch or a hydraulic, if it is a cable clutch the cable could be jammed giving the impression your pedal has been pressed , hydraulic could be that the push rod has jammed in I hope this helps

I have a 91 toyota celica that will not go when put into gear.


Have you had problems with clutch slipping up to this point? Like engine revving up and no change in speed while driving. Like going into 4th or 5th gear, letting clutch out, giving gas, and feels like no response? Engine just revs up? That's a slipping clutch.
If that's your problem, you need a new clutch.

2000 pontiac sunfire 5 speed manual transmission with 40,000 miles on the clutch started slipping what's going on with it


a clutch can wear out in a couple hundred miles if not driven properly or abused-at 40,000 miles it is highly possible that the clutch disk is worn to the point that it needs to be replaced. You might be able to get away with driving it but avoid driving it is such a way that it slips-if you can hear the engine running 'ahead' of the car (revving faster than you are moving) get off the gas-especially in higher gears. If you do this until you can get the clutch replaced, you should be able to nurse it along for months.

A new clutch was just put into my 1990 Honda Civic sedan. Right after, I noticed that I have to "shift" sooner from gear to gear than I previously did. For instance, where before I could wait...


Sounds like the clutch wasn't installed right. I think the pressure plate or clutch plate is slipping. Take it back as it should be covered under the workmanship portion of the warranty. When clutches are shipped, the pressure plate is machined and then coated with oil so it doesn't rust. Your installer may have forgot to take the oil off.

Clutch


Most likely yes. Put it in top gear at 30mph or so and floor the gas. If the revs rise but you don't accelerate as you should, the clutch is slipping and needs replacement.
