SOURCE: my ford focus tdi 2003 cant select 1st,3rd or 5th gears.

Car is in limp in mode unless you have the tools to work on automatic transmission you will need to take it to a transmission shop. Of course you can check oil level but I suspect you have other issues.

Mazda bravo b2600 gearbox growles and grumbles. cant select 2nd or 4th gear. 1st, 3rd,5th & reverse ok.


I am sorry to tell that the gearbox need to have some major repair. It is also not advisable to continue driving as the gearbox can breakdown completely leaving you stranded. At least one the cluster drive gears in the gearbox is damaged (gear tooth stripped off) that will result in that only some of the gears being able to be selected. The broken off tooth are still in the gearbox and due to the oil movement in the gearbox it can be "washed up " in between to engaged gears destroying those as well. This will happen up to the point where there are no gear selection at all.

Would need a good look myself to determine the problem but without a good look i would advise checking the linkage first .Now 5th and reverse on most cars have a mechanism to move the selector on top of the gearbox now if of this type and reverse is ok then it could be the operating lever inside the gearbox as the 5th gear sits on the outside of the gearbox behind a metal cover and its possible that this operating fork inside has broken or the retaining dowel pin has broke or just fallen out .But as stated i would need a on the job inspection so i would advise you to check the obvious then ask a dealer to have a look ?remember you do not need to drop the gearbox to fix the 5th gear in case they try it on.

Hi i have lost 2nd,4th and reverse gears could you tell me what is wrong i still have 1st,3rd and 5th gears and how i can fix this thanks


The linkage arms inside the gearbox are defective - the only way to fix that is to take out the gearbox from the car, dismantle it completely and replace the linkage arms, a very long and complicated job that can be done only by a repair shop and it will be expensive.

Hi i have a mr2 mk2 8 valve 1990 and i can't select reverse and 5th gear pops out under load and also grinds


You probably have a damage synchronizer gear for the selection of speed. Only way is to bring down transmission and overhaul completely. No rremedy for this, have to do it the hard way.

Cant get 5th gear or reverse on ford escort 1.6


This may simply be a case that the gear linkage is twisted too far round to the right, so that when the lever is pushed as far to the right as it can be, its not actually pushing the gearbox over far enough.
Try slackening the clamp bolt(s) and twising the shaft 1-2mm in one direction (the direction that moving the lever to the left is) If its no different or worse, twist it 2-3mm in the opposite direction.

Transmission problems (gear linkage)


The gear linkages are not correctly aligned.
Is the gearbox mounting in exactly the same place as when you removed it?
Even a 1/4 inch will offset the gears.
hope this helps
