I was reversing my 1994 toyota hilux went to shift from reverse to first and now stuck in neutral but jammed in gear don't know what gear if you let clutch out it stalls im guessing its in a top gear


remove the 4 bolts holding the gear pivot turret onto the top of the box and using a screw driver select neutral gear ( when all the selector rails line up as one slot)
If it is still in gear when you let the clutch out, a selector fork has become loose on the rail or broken and that means box out for repair

2001 Hyundai Tiburon will not go into 5th or reverse, however it will go into gear 1 to 4


5th and reverse gears are on the same selector rail. It is possible that the selector fork has come loose for the 5th gear or reverse. Remove the gear lever turret section of the box and see if the selector rail is moving gears or the rail itself.

My holden viva 2008 manual cannot put into reverse


as the 5th gear and reverse gear are on the same shifter rail the there may be a problem with the selector fork for reverse gear. Undo the bolts that hold the shifter turret to the box and see if the reverse selector moves when you use a lever to move the rail

My 95 ford escort want go in reverse and pops out of 5


this may be a problem with the 5th gear and reverse selector fork or bearings on the out put shaft and main shaft out put bearing.. AS this section is normally outside the gear box proper check if the rear extension housing can be unbolted and removed with out pulling the gear box. Remove the tail shaft and rear engine mount member and if there are a series of bolts around the housing it should come off revealing the selector fork and gears . Drain the gear box first.

Gear reverse is not working


Reverse and overdrive (5th) gear are on the same selector rail in the gear box. There were some models of Toyota land cruiser that had a weak selector fork and they were prone to breaking. check if you can select 5th gear. If you can then I suspect this to be the problem. It can be repaired in car as the rear extension housing can be removed revealing the failed fork.

I have a 99 323i and when i put the gear in reverse it slips out of the gear if i dont hold the shifter with a lot of pressure and sometimes if i put it in other gears and i dont push it a little hard into...


All linkage is internal on your transmission. Sounds like either something came out of adjustment or more likely an internal shift fork or synchro is worn out. Synchros are usually made from brass and wear faster than the other gears.

I am having trouble getting a 1994 Land Rover defernder 90 into reverse please help


The gears are selected by using one shaft with 3 forks. 1 and 2, 3 and 4 and 5 and reverse. When you move the gearstick to the left for 1 and 2, a notched ( that's all I can think to call it)circle around the shaft turns and engages the fork. When you want 3 and 4 another engages the fork, the same with 5 and reverse.
If the others are selecting, then something has either slipped or is jamming the stick.
If 5 engages, then it should go back to reverse, the same as if 3 engages, it should go back to 4th. If 1 and 2 engage, it seems like something is blocking the bottom of the stick from physically moving. Take the gearstick out first and see if something like the reverse switch has broken away.

Transmission wont go in reverse


Auto or manual,,, if auto it could be linkage or the locking button on lever,, or the reverse band has either broken or worn out
If manual box then its either a burred or worn revers gear,, or Selector shaft ball and spring jamed up but only in a 4speed forward gear box or the reverse gear fork pin has come adrift.
