Hi guys I have a 2005 peugeot 206. I have recently installed a new clutch. Everything was installed corectly and tightened accordingly. Once i put the gear box back on and turned on the car i cant get any...

sounds like the trust bearing has not been installed this fits on the fork in the clutch house that engages the clutch to release so gears can be changed, if its not locked in place it will not catch the clutch and is probably sitting in the bottom of the clutch housing.

Instrument cluster dont work unless you got the clutch in and the gear shift in nutral and only the will the gadget work

The only wires to a manual transmission is the speedometer. Being a 95, it may not have wires. It could be cable. You could have pinched some wire when installing the transmission. My guess is you lost ground to the cluster. Since it comes on with the neutral switch engaged. When you engage it, the cluster finds the ground source threw it.

I have a 1995 Chevy lumina 3.4 v6 automatic transmission my problem is the trans. is not going in to gear the shift tower will move from park to drive and I can fill it engage but the car will not go...

if mean you can feel the gear shift lever engage into position then you should check to see if the cable is moving the neutral switch on the transmission. if not then you may have a broken or out of adjusted shift cable. if the gear shift cable is moving the switch then the problem is in the transmission and will have to be looked into.

I can shift into drive but it won't engage

sounds like a broken shift cable. (the connection between the shifter and the gearbox) common symptoms are the shifter move easier than normal.and does not move to any gears (not even park or neutral).

My 1997 Ford F150 wont engage a gear, I had to replace the gear shift cable. Thats installed but know when you shift to revers, neutral or park the shifter just flops up and down with actually going into...

The starting problem is a direct result of the truck not being in the PARK position. There is a lock-out on the brake pedal lever under the dash that often gets hit by the drivers feet and knocked out of position or broken. It prevents the starter from engaging unless your foot is on the brake and the gearshift is in PARK.

The gearshift cable is suspect. If the old cable was snapped or some other defect was evident then putting on a new one should have been close to a full repair less adjustments. But the cable could have been the weak link and a frozen part on one end of the cable or the other caused the failure. Could be if the old cable was intact, the ends it attached to are spinning around and not moving the shafts or transmission valve bodies inside the transmission.

I do know that on later models like my 1999 F150, there were model changeovers and 2 types of transmissions and 4 exhaust systems depending on 2 or 4 wheel drive. Could be the new cable is different for your year model or were given wrong cable. Question is "Did you hold up new part to old and verify length?". Is 2 wheel drive cable different than 4 wheel drive cable?

This problem is hopefully seen by a transmission guy who can give a better answer than mine. I can also suggest a Websearch for installing this cable using your truck type and year could produce some videos on YouTube to help you. Hope this helps you.

Not shifting properly

This problem could be related to bad cables or the linkage assembly.Remove the center console and get down to the shifter where you can visually see the cables,and where the cables attach to the shifter.The cables should be hooked up at the transmission,but removed from the shifter.One cable is the neutral gate position,and the other is the actual gear selector cable.Manually operate the cables and see if the gears will engage using the cables.If the cables work,you have narrowed it down to the shifter itself.If the cables don't work and gears can't be engaged using the cables,then the cables are bad.Also look over the shifter assembly visually,look for cracks or broken metal while shifting it through the gears.--------- Check it.Thanks.

Not sure if shifter is installed properly

Ok, I guess its going to be a not too obvious solution then. All we have to do is find it...
1.What type of gear shifter is in your truck. Column or tower
2. Is the tail shaft turning when you try to move the vehicle
3. Does the vehicle try to move at all
4. Is there any noise from the gearbox or clutch area
5. Are you certain the clutch kit was the right one
6. Did you try the clutch plate on the gearbox input shaft spline
7. Is the release bearing clear of the pressure plate fingers.
8. Does the release bearing carrier slide freely on the retainer on the front of the bearbox, and did you apply lubricant here.

My sunfire is not shifting properly....

I had a similar problem except i could shift to first and third and fifth but not 2nd or 4th or reverse. the only thing that came to my mind was new transmission but that is not the case. It was a way i could but it was so frustrated. I am certain it is the shifting cables. The name of the part you need to get is TRANSMISSION SHIFTING CABLES. Only the dealership has them, about $200.00 got them and installed but a certified mechanic. I have no problems shifting into any gear at all. Hope this information helps. Any info contact me at
