Have you fitted the 020 type 5 speed? (Will have a Green circular end plate)

These use a ball-end cable and a U-shaped clip to hold in place. Difficult to explain in words.

My 1999 accord wont shift into gear while its on but will when its off its a 5 speed.

It's your hydraulic clutch system that probably isn't working. When you press the clutch pedal down, it causes the clutch master cylinder to put pressure in the line to the transmission's little "slave cylinder" that operates the clutch inside the transmission bell housing. This disengages the engine from the transmission so you can shift gears. It's probably not putting the slave cylinder to work by hydraulic pressure. The clutch master cylinder is mounted on the firewall, similar to the brake master cylinder, the clutch cylinder has a reservoir and you may need to add brake fluid to it. If it is dry, then you will need the system bled at the slave cylinder by a pro or someone who understands how. Pretty simple, really, just like bleeding brakes. Also the clutch master cylinder can develop internal leaks and this will lead to loss of clutch.

I have a 96 Infiniti g20 5 speed manual transmission,when I put my foot on the clutch I have to just about put the clutch to the floor before it engages, where and how do I adjust the clutch cable.

The clutch adjustment is performed by tightening or loosening the cable lock nut at the transmission side where the cable attaches to the shift fork arm.

Is there a standard transmission i could put in a 4.6 litre car that now has a automatic transmission in it

The answer is yes, any 5-speed from a 94-04 Mustang (4.6 or 3.8 doesn't matter, it's the same transmission). You'll also need the pedal assembly, shifter assembly, ecu from a 5-speed, 5-speed drive shaft, clutch and clutch cable, and flywheel.
BUT, If u didn't know all that already... let alone the yes or no answer to ur question, I wouldn't advise doing an over

Humming noise coming from transmission when its in neutral. push the clutch in and it stops. suppose to be a new clutch also it runs great but if you lift the rear end off the ground the wheels will s

the clutch is dragging.
adjust the clutch cable, better is to replace it these cars
the cable goes bad inside (fray) and causes it to be the clutch from hell, get a new cable, or go nuts, saw 3 guys replace a clutch when its only the silly cable. bad. it must be set with free play.
the whole deal is here.

P0740 honda odyssey

P0740 Honda - Transmission Lock-Up Control System Fault Possible causes
- Low transmission fluid level
- Dirty transmission fluid
- Faulty torque converter clutch solenoid valve
- Torque converter clutch solenoid valve harness is open or shorted
- Torque converter clutch solenoid valve circuit poor electrical connection

Tech notes
On some Honda vehicles the P0740 code may be set by an overheating torque converter problem which is caused by an insufficient flow to the torque converter release circuit.

P0740 Honda Description
The torque converter clutch solenoid valve is activated, with the gear in D4, by the Transmission Control Module (TCM) in response to signals sent from the vehicle speed and the Engine Control Module (ECM). Lock-up piston operation will then be controlled. When the torque converter clutch solenoid valve is activated, the torque converter lockup clutch will engage creating a 1 to 1 RPM ratio between the transmission input shaft and the rotational speed of the torque converter.
Lock-up operation, however, is prohibited when A/T fluid temperature is too low.
When the accelerator pedal is depressed (less than 2/8) in lock-up condition, the engine speed should not change abruptly. If there is a big jump in engine speed, there is no lock-up.

5 speed manuel rpm goes up but dont wanna go

I understand that your engine accelerates fine to high RPM's but your car won't move. Since it is a manual transmission car, the problem may be in a slipping clutch. Probably your clutch is worn and slips.
You might need to replace your clutch.

Clutch not going into gear. Had new clutch put in just last year.

I dont quite understand what you mean . The clutch releases you transmission from the engine to allow shifting.

If you mean it wont release maybe its not the clutch maybe its the slave cylinder which pushes it or the master cylinder which is connected to the pedal. If its a cable maybe the cable is out of adjustment.
