I was driving to work this morning and was in 3rd gear, went to down shift at a stop sign and its stuck in 3rd gear. 1988 jeep wrangler. It has been grinding the gear for a few weeks now everytime I change...


The 3rd Gear Synchro is worn or damaged, which is why it grinds when you try to upshift or downshift into 3rd gear. When it goes out completely you will have a very hard time shifting into 3rd gear, since the Synchro lines up the gears to make shifts smooth and easy.

The shifter cable on our 1998 chevy k1500 4x4 broke and we bought a new one and installed it but it still wont shift correctly. can you help me?


Does it go into drive fine and then shifts funny then i would be looking to replace the shift selenoids instead of the cable. They are easy to fix. Drop the trans pan and they are right there. They are not expensive. Change the filter while you are at it also. This may fix your problem. If you are talking about shifting it into gear then your problem may be in the colum. Disconect the cable and try shifting it to see if it is stiff.

2002 Toyota celica gt manual transmission hard to shift


Toyota Celica seams to run to that problem. If you have not done it yet you will need to take the center console out around the shifter and handbrake. There are in the shifter 2 white in color hard nylon type balls with pins holding them in place. Kind of like the size of a marble. One of two things can done if they are worn and loose while in place shifter may wiggle to easy. remove them and replace them with new ones with some grease. do not install dry,oiled or wd40. what has happened the shift pattern from a normal up down flow is not anymore straight and smooth line from one gear to the next but hanging up or binding between each gear mainly if you start driving fast or shifting fast and can happen while just normal driving and shifting..If there is to much stiffness than you need to be sure grease is coating them and they are not dry.
This causes harder to shift between gears and also hanging and binding.keep in mind the shifter also is mounted to the floor in four places.If there rubber and metal spacers they also can wear and cause or asst shift pattern to be off they no grease but replaced.The whole shifter would wiggle as well. if all is not the problem then you change the the cable.why the last check the cable? if it is not missing or damaged by the ***** eye it would be the hardest thing to do alone.Good luck11_21_2011_7_22_47_pm.jpg

Transmission is shifting hard and slow to pull on a 95 silouette also makes clucking sounds while accelerating


Shift suddenly become very hard. When going from park to either reverse or drive it slams into gear. 1-2 and 2-3 shifts are also harsh. All gears seems to work. Problem may be intermittent: Check TPS for smooth and linear electrical response over the entire range of motion. If not, replace.

Extremely harsh shifts from P or N, normal shifts at WOT: EPC (Electronic Pressure Control) solenoid failed. Easy fix in pan. Fix as soon as possible or hard parts will eventually break.

No 1st or 4th available; trans shifts 2nd to 3rd by itself in D or OD and locks the converter : ShiftA solenoid failed. Easy fix in the pan. Or a wiring problem from PCM to trans.. or PCM.

Car goes into gear but feels very sluggish like the brakes are dragging, but it will roll easily (starts out in 4th gear), you manually shift to 2 to get it moving, once it's moving you put it back in OD and the car shifts 3rd to 4th on its own and locks the converter at the appropriate time: ShiftB solenoid failed: Easy fix in the pan. Or a wiring problem from PCM to trans.. or PCM.

Gear Shift very stiff, doesnt want to go into 1st gear or reverse


Continued operation like this and $100 would have been the cheap fix. If this is a hydraulic clutch, check the fluid level in the clutch master cylinder. Most take Dot 3 brake fluid and it will say on the cap. It is located on the fire wall near brake master cylinder

The gear shift, (on the steering column) has become stiff. It still works but is stiff.


The gear change at the end out side the fire wall goes back to a x shaft and on to the side of the auto box, so take off the Gear box end and then try it,If still stiff then its due to lack of lub (oil) so lub with engine oil on all bushes and under the Steering wheel, play with it till free an easy.
Reconnect and test run.
IF its free then the problem is in the Auto-Gearbox and thats a lot more
of a problem and you either have to get it done be the Auto box shop or try it your self,and thats a shaft that goes into the valve body housing
in the pan and thats a big job,not the sort of thing you want to try
beleave me.Let me know how you get on RON

Goes into neutral and then shifts hard into 1st on slowdown


It sounds like your input clutch seals are rolling. Is the check engine light on. It could also be the pressure control solenoid could be causing the problem aswell

My gear shift is so stiff have checked fluids they are fine, yet I am finding it really difficult to shift gears can you help


If the gear shift is still hard to shift with the motor off, you need to look at the linkage, or internal shift forks. If it is only hard with the vehicle running, I would suspect the clutch or pressure plate not disengaging properly. You may be able to try a fluid change if it hasn't been serviced for a while.
