I have a 96 Toyota Tacoma with 186M miles. It's been slipping out of 1st and 5th gear for about 2 months now. Is that a clutch or synchronizer problem?

1995 Toyota Tacoma 3.4L 5-speed manual feels like 4x4 is not fully engaging.


check that the clutch is fully engaging by checking if there is free play at the throw out lever and clutch push rod . If you cannot push the rod back into the cylinder then the slipping is because the clutch is only partially engaged. Replace the clutch master cylinder if that is the case. If it is right then the fault will be in the pressure plat/ cutch plate and it may require a clutch kit.

Gear problem toyota previa 96 ???? its a manuel gear and its have somtimes trobble to get in 2 gear ??? Dos it needs oil or what ????


Get the clutch checked, if that's ok, it's transmission time. The synchronizers are shot if the clutch is ok 7 it still gives a problem.

I cannot engage the 1st and 2nd gear while i can hardly engage the 3rd, 4th & 5th gear. However I can easily engage the reverse gear and the fluid reservoir is empty.


Ok I see a manual transmission with a hydraulic clutch.
Get some fluid in that reservoir before you burn up the synchronizers.
Basically your clutch isnt disengaging because you are out of fluid. Next you need to find where the fluid is going. Likely the clutch slave cylinder is leaking and needs replaced. Pretty easy actually if you are handy with a wrench.

Slips out of 1st and 5th


Have you checked your transmission fluid level and your transmission filter? That's a common cause of slippping.

Transmission


The 5r55w transmisson is known for wearing out the case where the front and middle band servo pins go thru. If it wore the front band servo, it would slip in 2nd. But if it slips in 1st and 2nd it sounds like it could be a weak forward clutch. How many miles does it have on it. If you can get it up into the higher gears, does it slip in 5th. 2nd and 5th use the same band to apply them. Are you gettting and overdrive off light flashing? IF yes, what codes?

sounds like the synchronizers in the trans are starting to fail ask her it it has become harder to shift between certain gears (i.e. 1st-2nd, 2nd-3rd, 3rd-4th, or 4th-5th) does the clutch slip at all or does the clutch pedal feel different? if its a hydrolic clutch (almost if not all newer cars have hydrolic clutches) the clutch master cylinder may be low it looks like a small brake master cylinder (the clutch master cylinder is generaly round) and usualy is located directly under it, next to it or offset to the right OR left and located under the brake master cylinder the clutch will usualy take DOT 3 brake fluid or hydrolic clutch fluid it will tell you what type it takes right on the cap

if it isn't low on fliud and the clutch isn't slipping or not releasing/ engaging properly, its time for a new or rebuilt trans
