2001 Hyundai Tiburon will not go into 5th or reverse, however it will go into gear 1 to 4


5th and reverse gears are on the same selector rail. It is possible that the selector fork has come loose for the 5th gear or reverse. Remove the gear lever turret section of the box and see if the selector rail is moving gears or the rail itself.

Manual Transmission 5 speed


check the drain plug magnet for metal bits. Mostly you can remove the rear extension housing with out removing the gear box and you will find a small gear on the cluster shaft ( bottom shaft) and a larger gear on the out put shaft ( tail shaft) . Check that the shifter fork is actually moving the larger gear or gear dog into 5th gear (Fork loose on selector rail) or check that there are still teeth on the smaller gear as excessive high speed under load will rear out the teeth

2001 1500 chevy silverado rear axle removal ?


Typically, Chevy rear ends either have a bearing bolt plate or else it is a "c" lock axel. With the c lock style, you have to pull teh center inpsection cover off, and remove the pin that holds the IDLEing spyder gears.

The spyder gears are inside the carrier assembly. once the idler shaft is removed, you press the axle IN, towards the center of the vehicle, and then look in the area where the idler shaft was removed. You will see the C clip and the notch in the end of the axle.

When the weather is warm like 85 or higher, and my car warms up, when i am accellorating at a normal rate in 4th or 5th gear, i hear a chatter from the engine, usually around the 3000 rpm range. any ideas?


sounds to Me motor is starving for better gas or over heating?. Timing adjust mite help all. Engines computer 02 sensors, regulate that, cold gives more gas. I'd try better gas first..

NO 5TH GEAR IN MY 1995 MITS 3000,NO NOISE,NO PROBLEMS SHIFTING


I have the same problem. on the passenger side under the fender you will have access to the transmission. Remove the cap on the end. You will need to drain the transmission fluid and replace all the gears in the end cap if damaged hopefully they are not and you can just tighten up the nut. What happens is a nut comes loose and backs off the pressure on the bearings and you loose 5th. I removed the entire transmission and opened it up. There is nothing wrong with the other gears, because your problem is with the 5th gear synchronizer assembly. I let mine go too long and I'm having to replace everything. Make sure you put the appropriate torque on the nut and hit it with a hammer to lock it down. This should really be designed with a different method of keeping that nut in place. It's costing me lots of time and now money at the stealership. Good LUCK.

Rav4 gear problem


You need a new 5th gear- luckily this is easy to replace- I did it myself following online directions for 5th gear replacement. The 5th gear is not in the box with the other gears- its off to the side so you can access it very easily by removing the left front wheel. Just don't let the idler assembly come apart, lots of tiny parts and springs...
The 5th gear can ware out prematurely if you rest your hand on the shifter- do not rest your hand on the shifter in the future.

Trans noise growling metal...3rd,4th and 5th low speed


I'm not sure, but that sounds like the throw-out barings. If thats the case and they went before the clutch did, then their could be some big problems up ahead.
