SOURCE: 4l60e slips in 3rd and 4th

There are to many things that can cause this problem, best thing to is go get the ECM scanned for DTC codes at a transmission shop or Auto zone or Parts Source since they scan for free.
The ECM should have DTC code in it's memory on how the transmission is Performing and have the Transmission line tested for Fluid pressure.
Good luck and hope this helps. Oh and also ways check with more then on transmission shop if there tell you that you need a new Transmission,
It could be a simple as the transmission filter falling off causing the lost of transmission fluid pressure. Check the transmission fluid too.

Sounds like a bad countershaft bearing. The trans will need removed and disassembled to fix it.

SOURCE: E40d trans will not shift into 3rd or 4th gear, only rev. 1+2

check or replace your thottle position sensor tps that trans needs to know where the throttle is to shift if it is bad it will do as you say wont shift to third
another telltale is it will act like it goes into lockup when shifting into reverse and stall the engine

I had new clutch fitted 3 weeks ago now the gear stick has gone loose and I only have 3rd and 4th gear

Sounds like one of the rods between the gear lever and gearbox has become detached. One rod transmits the forward-backward motion, the other left - right, with the "natural" bias keeping the lever in the 3rd / 4th gear plane - hence why you've only got 3rd and 4th gear.

You should have some guarantee from the company that fitted the clutch so contact them to sort it out.

I just replaced the exhaust system in my 91 tercel but in 3rd and 4th gear it seems like it is stuck help

It sounds to me like you damaged or broke the linkage from the shift lever to the transmission. Take a look at the linkage and see if anything is loose or stuck. if not, then these 2 issues (exhaust being replaced, tranny not shifting) are not likely related.

Gears are in the wrong order after manual shifter cables replacement

Did you make sure the gear stick was in the same position when you fixed the new parts and parts are tight enough.
Or take cover off gear stick in car where it goes into the selector and reset the gears from there.

How to replace the exhaust manifold ring in my 91 Toyota Tercel

There is a bracket that attaches the exhaust pipe to the engine block. Remove the 2 screws that hold
that bracket on. I think they are 12mm heads. Detach the 2 exhaust manifold to exhaust pipe screws,
the screws have 15mm heads. A 15mm deep socket is best. After you remove those 2 15mm screws you can pull the exhaust pipe down, remove the old exhaust flange and put the new one on.

Rettach the exhaust manifold to pipe screws, and reattach the bracket and youre done.

I have a 94 Tercel - 4 speed on floor. I cannot put it into 4th gear without it popping out. I was told it needed a new shift cable. This car apparently has 2 cables. One for 1st and 2nd and one for 3rd...

Any car I ever had which had manual shift and was popping out of gear meant that it was time for another transmission. A junkyard can tell you what years and models of toyota transmissions will fit.
Yes they usually have two shifter cables, pull the console and look under your shifter.
