Under the hood by the brake fluid reservoir there should be another small reservoir that has a cap on it, this is called a slave-cylinder. If it is dry on fluid it will not release the clutch when you press on the clutch pedal and makes it very hard to get out of gear, especially if you are sitting on a hill. Make sure it is full of fluid( uses brake fluid). If this don't work rock the truck back and forth to take pressure off of transmission while trying to take out of gear.( may need a helper for this) If that doesn't do it you may have an internal problem with the synchronization inside the transmission.

Check the cable clips at the trans. Sometimes these clips come out and won't shift. Horseshoe clips that hold the cable housing.

Purchase a gear shift repair kit for your car. They are pretty cheap. About 20 bucs. The ball and bushings are probably worn.

SOURCE: hard to shift 5 speed manual speed transmission on 1995 rodeo

pending on the type of clutch in the vehicle, you may be low on clutch fluid. (if your clutch is hydraulic)
other than that it is most likely the entire clutch itself.

I have 2005 gmc 2500hd 4x4 5 speed 6.0 that is stuck in 4th hear but the shifter is in neutral. How do I fix it

5 speed im gonna assume its a standard shift as the auto trans this year only had 4 gears (that I remember) the shifter of the standard shift trans goes into the top (not the side) of the trans , im afraid that I don't know of any way not too have remove the transmission and transfer case out of the truck to repair this , but you may only find the selector fork is broken off inside it once you do

off course if you do decide to remove it these a line of YOU might as well"s that will need to be done too as a 05 is gonna be needing them

Shifter is in neutral. Why is manual transmission stuck in 3rd gear?

Internal transmission breakage has stuck the thing in 3rd gear. Stalls when putting in other gears because transmission is then being put into 2 gears at once. Better look into getting another transmission of having the current unit overhauled and repaired.

Hi I have a 1998 Ford ranger 2.5L Manual Trans. My problem is I had to SHOVE it in to 1st gear to put off from a red light. Well something POPPED when I did it... Now its stuck it first gear..... The...

It sounds like the selector has jumped out of it slide in first gear so it is still engaged , , take the cover off the box and slide first gear back to neutral , check for damage to the gear stick and repair or it will happen again , refit the cover.

95 yukon won't shift into first gear.

I don't think its plug wires. When you say it won't shift into 1st? It takes off in 2nd? Does it shift to 3rd and 4th? Or is it a shifter problem? Like it won't go into manual 1st

93 Chevy, gear shift **** between 2nd and 3rd

Remove the fluid - get a good flash light - get a very long screw driver - put the screw driver into the drain hole and force the transmission out of gear. Then remove the Transmission and replace or repair. Cheaper to replace. You bent the forks on the shift mechanism.
