It sounds like it could possibly be the linkages, not an easy job for a novice, best bet it to get it to a toyota mechanic

Manual forester - gears don't engage when I move the stick. Car starts fine, has been running fine, used it this morning but then went to go out and the gears won't engage. Can move freely between gears...


If you have a cable operated clutch then the inner cable is jamming bin the case and not allowing the clutch to engage. If hydraulic then the compensator port in the clutch master cylinder is blocked holding off the pressure plate and so the clutch is not engaging.

In my 1996 ford probe GT the stick shift will move where ever it wants to but my car is stuck in 2nd gear. It wont allow me to change gears but the stick shift can literally move in a full circle. I feel...


Hi I am stuck in 2nd too.But I have a Probe 1989 GT and shifter will not move. I am told I need to tap/hit some rods in the tranny, after I remove about 10 bolts on the side of the tranny, and this would unstick it. Could work for yours too. I did see someone ask "what if the shifter moves? then its more of the shift gates, and is easy to fix. I not see answer to how, tho.

Gear knob feels if it has come detached from the the gearbox and only moves forward anbackwards but the car is stuck in gear


Hi
the gear linkage has either snapped or come off, you should be able to remove the leather gear gaiter from around the gear stick pull it up and look through the hole. you may have to get under the car to pop it back into place but if it has snapped then you need a new gear linkage, its not expensive and easy enough to fix.

Hope this helps

03 passat gaitor replacement


Hi, The knob does twist off and they can be on very tight the best way of doing this without breking the gear stick is to get mole grips or a good wrench and hold this tight onto the gearstick so as when you try turning the know you can then hold the gearstick steady.
You might need someone else to hold the mole grips or similar tool holding the gear stick so that you can undo the knob on top.

It does undo but can be tight best you get something holding the gear stick still so as not to damage the plastic cups on the bottom of the gear stick joining the linkage to the gear box as these would involve more work.
Try and get some one to hold gear stick secure whilst you undo the knob.
Hope this is some help tp you let me know if you need further assistance

Bushes missing from gear stick and transfer stick


If it's a later model (post 98), then I have an idea what's happened. On the rounded ball end of the gear stick that goes in the box, there is meant to be a plastic bush that is only a very loose fit on the end of the stick. If it has dropped while either removing or replacing the gearstick, and fallen into the area at the back of where the gearstick actuates the shift rail, then apart from having a very sloppy gearstick, you won't be able to move the shift rail backwards - which is what happens when you move the gearstick forward (1st,3rd,5th). This should be fixable from in the cab. Of course, if you have an earlier model, none of the above applies, as you have the gearstick moving only one of a choice of three shift rails with no bush in that area. The only thing that happens to those is the spring on the gearstick breaks (that can't be replaced on its own!)

VOLVO S60 2004 D5 3RD GEAR GEARBOX CRUNCH


Sounds as if a synchronizer is going out in 3rd gear, or 3rd gear maybe stripped. I would get it checked by a tranny (transmission) shop before it ended up costing you more money. There is a possibility that there may be some shavings on that gear as well, which would just need cleaned.

I have a 98 Concorde


You need to check the linkage. Under the car, the section that connects the gear shift stick to the transmission rods.
