I have problem with my Nissan terrano 2 mechanical gearbox. It's hard to put to 1st gear. From 1'st to 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, are also hard. Is it necessary to change clutch?


not a clutch problem unless you have just done a clutch kit change
more likely a hydraulic clutch problem ( air in the system) or master cylinder needing replacement .
if it is a cable operated clutch , replace the clutch

VERY Bizarre Combination of "Symptoms" I Believe Relating to Clutch or Transmission, or heaven forbid worse! Please help!


Hi,

First, congrats on the most detailed problem description I have ever seen! Seriously, it does assist us.

All this is completely consistent with your clutch not releasing properly, meaning that the gearbox is still turning when the pedal is depressed. The syncros in the gearbox will then keep you out of gear, that is what they should do. You can indeed shift into higher gears however when driving as the gearbox revs more nearly match to what is needed. The jerking forward when you hit the starter is due to the poor old starter motor having to move the whole car instead of just the engine, because the clutch has not released !

Now as to why, it is likely that the clutch release fork has broken, inside the housing. I had this once with a Mazda, and symptoms were exactly as you describe. The gearbox has to be removed if this is the problem, and you should also then take the chance to renew the clutch, pressure and driven plate both, unless quite new.

Also a possible cause is a complete loss of clutch fluid if a hydraulic clutch, or a broken cable if that type of clutch. Loss of fluid in a hydraulic clutch can be easily checked in the fluid reservoir, and can occur if a hose splits

I have a 1994 Saturn SC 2 manual and sometimes it does not want to go into 1st gear, and I have to pop the clutch several times before t will go into first gear. What can I do to fix this?


sounds like gear linkage on top of gearbox under car. should be adjustable. simple job. if not, could be an internal gearbox problem. ie. dogs in gearbox worn. big job. or could simply be a clutch problem. difficult without driving car.

When starting, clutch down 1st gear turning key truck jumps forward, will start but need to be ready to take off in gear that started in. starts fine in neutral.but won't go into gear without grinding


1st check your clutch system, that is most probably where the issue is as the gearbox rarely ever gives issues

2nd check the oil for your gear box. the oil should help the gears as they move into action or move out.

Theres a problem changing gears, its a soft very low biting clutch peddle, unable to change down from high ratio gears to low ratio gears, having to knock into nuetral pump the clutch to select gears...


This sounds like you may have a leak in the hydrulics of the clutch, the clutch slave is not disengaging the clutch all the way, this is the reason for the low bite pedal and hard to get gears, the most common problem is the fluid is low due to a leaking slave cylinder, i would look around the clutch components for a leak, hope this helps.

Noise from gearbox/clutch when engine running . When the clutch is fully depressed the noise goes but returns when the clutch is released to bite point.


This is more than likely an input cluster bearing beginning to fail. It could also be a sign that the gearbox is simply out of oil. Check oil level & if it is ok it is more than likely the input cluster bearing in the gearbox. Low oil is usually accompanied by gear noise which is usually more noticeable in 1st, 2nd & reverse. Input cluster noise is much less noticeable when in gear due to load on input shaft.

1994 Ford Probe GT standard transmission - Will not shift into first or second while car is running. Shifts fine while car is off.


Check your slave cylinder Usually located below the brake master cylinder. If there' Fluid you probably need a clutch.

Clutch bites high up on pedal movement


check clutch master cylinder rod adjustment and pedal height should be just higher than brake pedal. could try and bleed system also.
most hydraulic clutch systems have high take up points, adjust master cylinder rod, check for free play at top after adjusting if all that is O.K. then clutch plate may be nearly worn out but not slipping at this stage.
