Have some one ( with engine OFF) slowly shift from 1st to Reverse, YOU be out side and watch the linkage and tranny movement. WHAT you may have is loose bracket, tranny, or support bolts. bigAl

SOURCE: reverse gear

it could be that reverse gear has been partially stripped. when we talk gears we are literally talking of mechanical gears. sometimes teeth break off from normal wear and tear, after so many break off the gear has trouble engaging. you will either have to have the transmission rebuilt or have new one installed, hope its under warranty this kind of work can be costly. Most likely this is the problem. If your car is standard transmission it could be your clutch is having trouble engaging, but this would also affect forward gears so it is most likely your reverse gear is missing teeth

I have the same car, the only solution to this problem is to tighten the clutch cable nut just as necessary until you feel that you are able to shift smoothly without forcing it, make sure you start the car to test for that.

You might have to remove the air intake in order to access the clutch cable.

If you tighten the nut too much, your clutch will feel light and you will have clutch slips. So basically keep trying until you're there. You can loosen or tighten the nut while the car is running, I'd recommend.

My Kia Rio is struggling to get into gear. I have to be going at least 3000rpm before the gears will shift and sometimes have to completely turn it off to get it into first from reverse. Shifting whil


Being shut out of gear like that is an indication that your clutch is not disengaging even when the clutch pedal is down. Revving to 3000 rpm matches speeds inside the gearbox, in effect shifting without clutch action.

I believe your clutch cable is broken, unattached at one end or the other, or is too slack to release the clutch.

Reverse gear crunching


Hi. Maybe a vacuum leak or a auto choke issue keeping the idle high. If the idle is too high then the reverse gear will crunch.

Kia Rio 2005 manual, the gear will get stuck and car shakes and stalls on its own when I come to a stop, foot on clutch and brake, in reverse and first gear.


what would happen if you put it in first gear,put your foot on the clutch then try to start the car....of course pick a place where safe!!!...if it rolls forward while cranking ,the clutch plate is touching the flywheel (in other words the clutch all the way down while in gear while cranking,should NOT touch the flywheel(transmission part that makes the car move) so if it moves then it shows the transmission reacts to the clutch touching the other jiggamathig. Possibly clutch system needs bleeding (air in the hydraulic system). I'm sure your car has this thing called a "clutch slave cylinder". Now,this is one thing I would check first.

How much does it cost 2 have a clutch replaced on a citreon xsara


Before you race out and replace the clutch which will not be cheap for your car have a good look at the slave cylinder for leaks . Check and bleed the clutch system and have the clutch m/cyl checked. Crunching gears means the clutch system is not disengaging properly

Hard to get in first gear makes noises going into


synconizers or shift fork bent, but most likely your throw out bearing is not dissengageing your pressure plate al the way. check your clutch linkage.
