Difficult to put in gears.

I have a rodeo 2000 4 cyclinder 2.2L (manual/standard), sometimes it is easy to put in the gears but sometimes the gears are hard to go in, especially 1st gear. i usually turn off the engine and then when i turn it on, it goes in smoothly. Plz help.

    Thank you very much, but can you explain a little more, I am not a mechanic, I am a computer technician, my father is a mechanic but does know the car very well and with your help, he might be able to do something. I appreciate yourhelp.

Either your clutch is not fully disengaging or the synchros inside the transmission are worn.

    Your clutch is hydraulic (works just like your brakes, but instead of a wheel cylinder or caliper it moves a slave cylinder that pushes on the clutch release. If the slave or master cylinder for the clutch has partially failed, it will not fully disengage the clutch, therefore the transmission input does not slow down enough to engage a gear properly. If the synchros in the transmission are worn, they do not allow the shift collar to engage the actual gear smoothly, and will cause resistance to shifting and sometimes grinding. Sometimes the forks that move the sliding part of the synchro can wear giving a similar symptom...either way that repair would still involve removal and teardown of the transmission.

    That's the beginning of the problem...usually gets worse with time...have it checked out!!! Glad to help!

My 93 rodeo will not move it cranks fine and will let me put into to gear. Is it the clutch or the cyclinder

most likely a problem master cylinder with the compensating port blocked
when you press the clutch , it is building up pressure that allows you to start it and to select gears but when you take the foot of the clutch , the fluid cannot return to the reservoir and so you go nowhere
the real fix is a new master cylinder and slave cylinder if the units have not been replaced in the last 5 years

Engine stalling

Have a diagnostic scan run with freeze frame and capture mode. This way when your RPM reaches the point the problem occurs it will be 'captured; and saved on the scanner. From that information the proper repair procedures can be determined...otherwise it's just a guessing game.
Good luck...i hope this helps.
