Question about Cars & Trucks

When I try to put my truck in reverse it grinds like the clutch isn't engaging. Could it be that it isn't lined up correctly underneath? I recently replaced the slave cylinder in the transmission.

I assume you have a manual transmission? This problem could be caused by air bubbles existing in a clutch after replacement. You'd have to pump through all the valves to get rid of air.

I have a 93 Toyota pick up 4x4 standard transmission. Sometimes when I go to reverse, there is a grinding noise, which won't let me shift into reverse. I then need to turn off the vehicle, then engage....


Could be the clutch.
Reverse and first do not have gears that line up like the others do. So if the clutch is not disengaging all the way, they will grind.

Manual transmission reverse is blocked


Hi Mitch, If when engaging first gear you have a grinding and clunk try pumping the clutch pedal before engaging reverse. My reason for saying that is that if the pedal takes low to the floor you may have a defective hydrolic clutch line. If it doesn't work I think I would suspect a bent selector rod. Regards John

My 2003 dodge neon sxt with a manual transmission will not shift into Reverse


is it grinding when you try? try to turn car off hold in clutch put into reverse and then start car
if it pops right out you need to get it to a transmission shop.
i recently replaced a transmission in an SXT that had no reverse, all it would do it grind and pop back out

Why does my clutch make a grinding sound when i put the clutch in reverse


That sounds more like the synchro gears are out of whack rather than the clutch being the issue. If the clutch was the issue you would hear the noise whenever the clutch was engaged not just when the tranny is shifted to reverse.

1988 Ford Bronco Transmission Issues


is the idle speed correct? do you shift into second before trying to engage reverse?, is the clutch ok, this is most likely not the trans at all but one of the above issues, the clutch is my guess.

2000 yukon xl will not engage in gear


First thing I would check is Automatic transmission fluid level, you can't fill the clutch packs if there's no fluid available in the pan to do so. Does it move in forward or reverse, are there any whining/grinding noises from underneath?

Reverse gear has grinding noise...?


Have them flush the fluid out under warranty and put in new fluid, and have them bleed the clutch lines in case air is getting in there. Audi and VW claim lifetime transmission fluid but it's BS - I've changed relatively low mile fluid from these cars and it was horrendous. It's possible that the fluid itself is causing trouble, but it's more likely that it is a synchro problem. If it was a clutch issue, you should have problems with more than just reverse gear - a clutch simply engages and disengages the engine and transmission, regardless of which gear it is. The problem (if not fixed by fluid) is in the transmission, and being under warranty, don't accept another "suggestion" like they're giving you. Changing your clutch isn't gonna do it.

Tdi clutch pedal pushed all the way down but hard to shift gears


Check your clutch fluid level, sometimes a seperate reservoir (drivers side on firewall), some clutch systems take fluid from the brake system (check brake fluid). If thats ok then the clutch slave may be failing.
If the clutch fluid is low refill it and check for leaks (or just wait till the symptom comes back). If it's happens often then theres a leak in the line or the slave somewhere.
