OK, if it's a cluth probelm then you either need a new clutch, or it's a problem with the slave cylinder. I've even heard if as simple a problem as the bolts holding the slave clynider coming loose, so when you press the clutch, the slave actually moves. If you're having troubles getting it into gear (metal on metal) your shift linkage bushings could be worn. There are 2 on the shifter end, and 2 on the transmission end. I recommend replacing them with a more solid bushing from ****** Racing (www.boogerracing.com) that will give a much more confident feel than the stock rubber bushings.

SOURCE: 2001 Saturn SL Manual Transmission stuck in 2nd Gear

I had this same problem with my 1998 SL2 after about 170,000 miles. There is a plastic bushing at the end of the shifter cable that holds the cable to the shifter - it probably broke. Remove the center console inside the car to access the bottom of the shifter. I checked my local Saturn dealer to find the replacement cables (come as a set) are more than $200. So I went to Lowes and bought a beam clamp and a large washer to hold the cable to the shifter. It has been working fine for more than 28,000 miles and cost less than $3

My citroen 2.8 relay is hard t get into some gears, 1st and 3rd are ok, 5 crunches but 2nd and 4th are hard too get, its asthough something has seized up. any ideas?


Hi. Just a long shot.
Might be an idea to take off the gearbox end cover
and check the mainshaft end nut hasn't worked itself loose.
I've seen this happen a few times.

Cant get 2nd and 4th gear on my citroen relay 57 plate


Hi Colin, What happened to your Lotus? The problem with your vehicle could be broken or damaged engine mountings or adjustments of the linkages if the problem is failure to engage, but if you are engaging the gears and then the gears pop out, the problem is inside the gearbox with the syncromesh cones and clutches. Lotus is better than Citroen anyway! Regards John

Problems selecting 1st gear peugeot 106 1.1 zest


If the clutch is a problem you will have difficulty selecting 1st only as the gears would be spinning from the engine revs.. I would say that the front input shaft (clutch shaft) bearing is failing allowing miss alignment of the synchros and not allowing proper engagement of the gears synchro rings. It means removal and repair to the gear box so the clutch can be inspected while the box is out.

Hi ive got a citroen dispatch van 1.6 hdi 07 plateive had upto date first and second syncros done the a new gear box with linkages the all the syncros with gears and a new clutch but it has done it again...


you surprise me,these vehicles are bullet proof under normal circumstances and yes the syncros can wear out like any make of vehicle ,but this old grandad who passed his test in a viva with no syncro on first gear ,and passed his hgv on a vehicle with no syncros at all was taught to drive in a different era and rule one was neutral and handbrake on when stopped ,not holding it on a hill by slipping the clutch ,secondly to not put a vehicle in first gear whilst moving ,well it wouldnt go anyway ,double the clutch between gears so as to reduce the wear on the syncros and gears .not to ride the clutch between changing gears and also change down using double the clutch to save the brakes and stop vehicle slipping or skidding on a wet road ,not fly up to a roundabout ,slam on brakes force it into first gear at 30 mph then try to imitate evil kenival by going around on two wheels .This sort of driving will only damage the gearbox like syncros and clutches not lasting very long .

Help im having problems selecting 1st and 2nd gear and the gear stick is very lose on my 99 206 any ideas?


there is a central plastic ball fitted to your gear stick. Open the leather cover and check every single ball (i.e one in center, 2 on the side and locking balls of gear wires). May be you need to remove the whole central console to have a look at your gear stick main frame. Its not complicated but time consuming. It better to take it out and check it completely rather than having the same problem again. The problem with gear shifting could be on gearbox side as you only mentioned the 1st and 2nd gear. But sort this thing out then you'll know better. If you need any help then pls inform.

I have a 99 (S reg) impreza sport 2.0 AWD, manual gbx. i have recently started having trouble shifting into 1st, from 1st to 2nd and back down to 2nd from 3rd. the only thing that sometimes solves this is...


Sounds like a worn selector shaft in the gearbox. If it is it will need stripping and replacing. Better just to get another seconhand box. It could also be the clutch spline cover fingers worn so the clutch will not engage properly. Both will need the box out to find out.
