If all the gears including Reverse and Neutral show up in there proper place on the shift indicator your problem is either the linkage or the transmission. If your shift indicator is not lining up correctly you are probably putting the car in Second instead of Drive although Drive is showing. See if you can find neutral and go down 1 click regardless what it shows. Then try it. If that solves it, the little needle slipped and it is a simple adjustment to reset it.

EGS: Ratio monitoring, gearshift 4-5/.


Gear ratios are monitored from the input and out shaft speed sensors. Takes a scanner to watch the speed signals. These sensors are magnetized. If to much metal collects on them, this could mess with the signal. Could be a bad wire or plug to the sensor. Reading the code is just the first step. Next comes diagnostics. Making sure everything on the outside of the transmission is doing what is supposed to do, then going inside it.

96 escort 1.9 manual jerking while accelerating 96 escort 1.9 manual


best advice is dont go 40mph in 5th gear... if you are going up a hill at 40mph in 5th gear i have no doubt that it is jerking, your putting too much stress on the engine. shift up to 4th or 3rd you will be fine. 5th gear is an overdrive gear. 55+mph

1984 Jeep CJ7, Gear shifting / Linkage problem


likely the shift rails are worn inside the trans. In changing shift, you have removed the wear on the end of the stick, but not the corresponding wear where the stick fits into. It will need to be taken apart to repair this. (would not hurt to have synchros replaced at the same time.) OR, replace transmission if you have an inexpensive one available.

Shifting problem with Toyota Paseo


The throttle position switch has some effect on shifting but should effect both hot and cold. It is normal for Toyota vehicles to lock out the overdrive upshift (3rd to 4th gears) until coolant temperature reaches approx 180 degrees f.
