I would first change the transmission fluid since it may be burnt. If this does not work you need to have the transmission checked out.

rattling noise from front, first rule out any loose heath shield check exhaust system, and also your engine mounts when given gas your engine shifs under torque and when you let off the gas to shift engine moves back(no load, torque) if loose or broken mounts may cause interierence on moving parts(binding). do this firts good luck

Hesitation or slight bucking when shifting from 2nd-3rd.


Why are you shifting from 2nd to 3rd gear ? is this a standard or automatic? If its a automatic its normal for the torque converter to catch up with the speeds of the tranny. To save the life of your tranny try to let the tranny do the work by itself and don't shift unless in adverse weather conditions.

I have just bought a 51 plate a3 1.8. Sometimes it wont go into third and fifth gear as it should. When trying to change into these gears it doesn't crunch it just won't let you put it in gear. The best...


The possiblities that come to mind are
1 Bad synchro in transmission 2 bad bearing(s) in transmission input shaft.   3 Bent shift linkage or shift fork (I doubt this, but it's possible)
Only number 3 is relatively cheap.  I'd go back to where/who you bought the car from, if it was that way when you bought it, and ask them to help.  It can't hurt.

Using force is NOT the solution.  If the syncros are bad, until you get them replaced, you'll be better off to determine the RPM difference between 2&3 gears (maybe 800-1000?) and also 4&5 gears (maybe 500-800?) and learn to put a modest amount of effort at exactly the time the rpms fall into that diffference.  
Example Say the difference between 2nd gear at 3500 RPM and 3rd gear is 1000 RPM, then when you take it out of 2nd for an upshift to third,  delay until the RPMs are just getting to 2500. If you are on a budget and can't fix the transmission (it's going to be big bucks) you may find you can get pretty good at this.    It is possibly to shift a car this way without even using the clutch, although I don't recommend this and it takes a great deal of practice and luck.
While you have this problem, don't downshift into 3rd,  just run the RPMs down in 4th (say to 2000 or less) until you can shift into 2nd at an acceptable RPM. The least amount of shifting you can do until you resolve this the better.
Another choice until you can fix it, is to just run up the RPMs in 2nd and then shift to 4th, and then forget you have a fifth gear.  This is much better than forcing, it's possible to do more damage by forcing. 
Is it hard to get into 3rd from 4th AND 2nd?

1996 Dodge Ram Transmission shifting problem


I had the same problem with my 96 Ram 1500. I thought I was going to have to pull it out and get it rebuilt or just replace it. That was at 134,000Km it's now got 210,000 and shifting like a dream. What I did to solve the problem was this, as follows:
1. No lucas transmission Fix makes things worse.
2. Get your self a new transmission filter and gasket
3. Grab Gunk transmission medic 12oz
4. Grab 7 Liters of Valvoline ATF+4 transmission fluid (Made for chrysler transmissions)
5. Drop the trans pan and drain all the oil, clean pan and magnet
6. start truck for 5 seconds and the pump will pour out another 1 liter
7. re-install filter, gasket and pan, then add your Valvoline ATF+4
8. Add, the valvoline, transmission medic and make sure you have the right level of fluid

That solved my transmission problems, instantly it was shifting better, I no longer had to let off the gas to make it shift. Now if you have large pieces of metal on the magnet, and it's totally covered in filings, you might want to consider rebuilding the trans. My magnet had usual clutch.         

Anyhow good luck, let me know if it did the trick for you.
