It sounds like the shifter was installed incorrectly.
The transmission does not need to be removed just the shifter from the top pf the trans needs to be installed correctly

HJ75 toyota 89 troupie diesel 5 speed...Have had new clutch kit installed recently to rectify slipping. Main oils eal & input shaft seal replaced also. Problem is now I have an almighty transmission...

I have seen somethings similar to what you describe, 1 - the rear tailshaft was slightly loose, 2 - the yoke the tailshaft bolts to on the gearbox is held on by a big nut and when this is loose or not done up tight enough can clunk. More noticeable in the lower gears because of the high torque.

Let me know what you think.

Ran out of gas on 89 Acura Integra, car won't re-start

pull tow the car and pop the clutch to jumpstart. when u run out of gas sometimes u get an air bubble in the line and it has to be pushed up to a certain speed then pop the clutch in second or third gear and it should start.

1990 Toyota PICK UP SR5 V6, when in gear and start releasing clutch pedal, truck starts moving forward with slight jerking. As soon as I give it gas, it starts to **** harder, forcing me to shift into 2nd...

Sounds like it is a clutch issue. Have the clutch plate checked or check the clutch and friction plates. I know it sounds strange but In reality we always press teh clutch all teh way in to shift. But going from 2nd to third you actually don't have to. Going from 3rd to 4th is even less of a distance. It may be a problem between the clutch and friction plates depending on when you last had them changed and adjusted.

Clutch issue? 89 toyota PU 4x4 V6 150,000 miles

Yep, you got it. Assuming spring tension on pressure plate feels normal (you should know with 150k mi) then the clutch disk is worn. Time for replacement.

89 toyota 22re sr5 ext cab 2wd slips out of 1st and 3rd its a 4cyl fuel injection

First things first, It sound like your tranny may of had its better days. Yes your sincronisers maybe worn out. but some toyota trannys have a shifter that has a broken seet and/or worn bussing.
this is what it looks like.


This is the bushing.


These parts are in the top of the tranny where the shifter goes in i would start there. If it is fine then start thinking about a rebuild. I hope this helps. I believe these parts a less than 20$.

Marlin Crawler sell them.

On an 89 Toyota Camry with manual transmission, two possible reasons:
  • clutch;
  • release bearing
Try bleeding the clutch on the slave cylinder. If this does not prove to be corrective, you may have to have the transmission/clutch checked/repaired/replaced. In some instances, it could just be a sticking release bearing or clutch fork.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
