I can't shift my 5 speed into reverse. I can shift into 1st, 3rd and 5th all the time but it will shift sometimes into 2nd or 4th and no reverse at all. I am driving the car but can't park where I will need to back out.

We just bought 2002 daewood with a manual and most cars have a spring so you don't go into reverse. This one it's between second and third is this normal for these cars?


Hi:
Your 5 speed transmission should be spring loaded to naturally end up in line with 3rd and 4th gear. You should have to push the gear shift to the left to get it into 1st, and push to the right to get it into 5th, or Reverse !

I have a 1995 ford f150 5 speed transmission manual and 1st and 2nd use to work but now don't ? what could i chek for?


Hi:
Your transmission has 3 shift rails...
1st - 2nd
3rd -4th
5th- Reverse

If your 1st and 2nd don't work , you have an internal transmission problem, such as a syncronizer, or similar fail... There is not much you can fix, without removeing the transmission.

I just bought this 1994 saab 900s and i cannot find which is first second thrird etc and reverese help me please


The shift pattern is standard 5 speed H: 1st is all the way up to the left, 2nd straight back and down from that, 3rd is up and slightly to the right of 1st, 4th is straight back and down from 3rd, 5th is up and all the way over to the right. Reverse has a reverse lock out collar under the shift knob that you grip with one finger on either side of the bottom of the knob and pull up while pulling back and all the way to the right.
