Hyundai tiburon running at high rpms when shifting


hmmm....it would seem as if your trans is having a bit of a hard time shifting so its sort of waiting before it can shift to the next gear (possible the gear system is having a problem shifting due to it sticking to some gears) i'd have to say....a mechanic can take a look to see why its seemingly shifting late at high RPMs to me IMO the trans is just having a hard time shifting with gears wanting to stick together making the whole trans have a hard time shifting

Having a hard time finding 1st gear. The other gears are fine just first gear. 1989 volkswagen cabriolet.


Sounds like the shifter may be wearing out. You may have to get into the transaxle to check it out. Could also be a problem with the alignment of the shift cable between the shifter and the trans.

Unfortunately any problem it could be will have the same fix. You will end up needing the trans replaced or rebuilt.

1984 Jeep CJ7, Gear shifting / Linkage problem


likely the shift rails are worn inside the trans. In changing shift, you have removed the wear on the end of the stick, but not the corresponding wear where the stick fits into. It will need to be taken apart to repair this. (would not hurt to have synchros replaced at the same time.) OR, replace transmission if you have an inexpensive one available.

The shifter is moving from Drive to Neutral and make grinding or creaking noise while I'm driving. Some times wen the jeep is park and I shift to reverse does the same noise. Fluids are ok but the tranfer...


Though you did not say, I'm going to assume it's a stick shift.
Shifter popping out of gear nearly always indicated an internal transmission problem (likely worn synchros) Either way, trans needs to be replaced or rebuilt. Transfer case is supposed to be filled with good grade auto transmission fluid, though some people opt for gear oil (but it gets really thick in cold weather). You may aslo have a t-case problem if you ran it low, but it is not related to shifter problem!

'99 wrangler has trouble shifting to 2nd gear - 4th gear occasionally slips to neutral


If you can see where the shifter goes through the floorboard, make sure the shifter is not hitting the floor.
There could be interfierence under the car also.
