Question about 1995 Honda Prelude

1 Answer

My car wont go into gear

I was going backwards in reverse and then i tried putting it into first gear but it wouldn't go through. It feels like its jammed or something. And i tried the other gears and the same thing happens, it doesn't get into any gear, but when the car is turned off and i try to put it into gear it goes through.

Well, absent any additional information from you, if you have difficulty shifting gears when the car is in operation, you may have any of three problems: the master cylinder, slave cylinder or the mechanical synchronizer of the transmission malfunctioning. Here's a diagnostic article that explains it very well:
http://yourhandymanzone.com/Your_Handyman_Zone_How_To_Pages_Vehicle_Car_Zone_Cars_Trucks_Vans_Transmission_System_Shifting_In_Manual_Transmission_No_Poss_Engine_Runs.htm

Another closely similar article that is good to read--even though the first one sounds a lot like yours--is this one:

Hope this helps!

When i start my car and go to put it in gear it wont move.


When you say rocky spot, what do you mean? If you mean there were rocks in the roadway, you could have put a small hole in the transmission pan which leaked all the fluid out of it. First thing I would do is check the fluid level on the transmission dipstick and look for leaks on the ground under the car.

98 vw beetle wont go in reverse


I have a 1998 and I just confronted the same problem. It seems to take like 1 gear in reserve and like 2 gear in 1 gear. Any thoughts? I don't really it should be the transmission since it still works going forward in 2 different gears. Thanks.

Vibration when using reverse gear .when shifting to reverse gear i feel vibration like oil pump vibration


Have your motor mounts checked very soon. This only shows in reverse because reverse causes a backward torque than the engine does in forward gear.
