I have a kia rio it jumps out of reverse but hold the gear nob and it works


Hi there,

When a 5-spd gearbox cannot hold reverse, this means either:
* Worn or mal-adjusted Shift Linkage
or
* Weak Shift Rail Spring

If after having the Shift Linkage adjusted the reverse gear still pops out , then you may be facing some more costly work in your gearbox. Depending on the quote to repair your existing box, it may actually be cheaper to fit a 2nd hand one.

Good luck..

My explorer drives fine no trans noise it shifts good, but when you first put it in drive it takes a few seconds to engage any idea?


low transmission fluid level is main culprit,handbrake on start engine then select reverse and check oil level .The second main problem is a worn front clutch inside the gearbox which will involve stripping the gearbox to renew the clutch plates

My son has a '91 Pulsar, 5 door hatch. When he changes into reverse, the gear "grates", we beleive the clutch needs to be adjusted, is this correct? (he has no bother with any other gear...


When the engine is idling and the gear box selector is in Neutral all the internals of the gearbox are rotating. Pushing in the Clutch disconnects the drive from the engine to the gearbox but it takes a few seconds for the gears in the box to cease rotating. All the forward gears have synchromesh so there will be no crunching noise ifa forward gear is selected immediately the clutch is pushed in before allowing the gears to stop spinning. On the other hand Reverse has No synchros and therefore selecting reverse before waiting a few seconds for the gears to stop spinning will produce the crunching noise you have described.
So it pays to wait a second or two after pushing in clutch before Reverse is selected to minimise the crunch and if the clutch appears to be working correctly in normal driving ,then no adjustment is necessary.

2005 Corolla's manual trasmission shifts gears, it clunks


hi mate , sounds like the SPIGOT bearing its a little bearing that allows the gearbox to be at a different seed than the engine flywheel and if this is in bad condition it will take the gearbox front shaft to a higher speed than comfortable for gearshift , in the meantime when you go for 1st or reverse gear just engage a gear like 4th without taking your foot off the clutch and then go for 1st or reverse, this will stop the gearbox spining long enough for a smooth shif, oNLY USE THIS METHOD WHILE STaTIONARY and see a professional when you get time.

Manual trans will not move in reverse after start but will after


check the level of fluid... most gearboxes take a second to gain oil pressure so if there is low oil because of a leak etc... it may cause a few gears to not select imediately after starting

Transmission will not shift into drive or reverse when first started


if youre only talking about a few second delay, thats normal. start the vehicle, wait 5 seconds, step on the brake and you should hear the shift lock solenoid engage and allow you to shift.

My 1997 Honda Civic has a few seconds delay engaging into Reverse. Forward gears have no problems but when i put it in "R" it takes like 5 seconds before engaging. Fluid level is ok.


Basically you should have the vehicle's reverse circuit pressure tested by a certified ASE Transmission Repair Shop.They will be able to tell you if there is a blockage in the cricuit, reverse shift solenoid is on its way out ,or a gearing problem even if there is a manual shift valve issue. Good luck
