    Hi,

    As you say that the gears shifts with the motor off you should check the fluid in the clutch master cylinder reservoir. Most likely the slave cylinder has a leak. Check for fluid inside the car where the push rod from the clutch pedal goes into the clutch master cylinder. If the boot is wet you need a new clutch master cylinder. You need to replace the slave cylinder at the same time; it will save you money because it's going to be next.

    i checked the spacing on the clutch pedal and its fine. we replaced the clutch about a yr ago.



    its been going this for about a week now and at first i could manually put the car in reverse by doing it under the hood and it would run fine for day but now its gotten worse and i cant even do that

  • Tim churchill May 01, 2010

    ok my brother said that they rebuilt the transmission about the same time they replaced the clutch...

    and how do u drain and replace the fluid on a manual transmission

  • Tim churchill May 03, 2010

    ok can u show me a diagram of where the neutral safety switch is on a 1993 toyota pasco

  • Tim churchill May 03, 2010

    just to make sure......... we just did the clutch kit, and it wasnt doing before we changed the clutch. and now it is..... so it would make more sence that we messed up somewhere putting it back together.

  • Tim churchill May 03, 2010

    oh yeah its a 5 speed ...... i didn't think they had neutral safety swiths

  • Tim churchill May 03, 2010

    ok let me repharse the problem, lol







    I just installed the clutch, pressure plate, throw out bearing...... I got it all back together and when i tryed to hook up the battery the starter engages.... it just spins and the cables spark....... i assume i messed up some where but i;m not sure. this was not happening before i change the clutch...... whatca think?

  • Tim churchill May 05, 2010

    It ended up being the starter... Thankz for yalls help

Clutch, pressure plate and throw out bearing most likely need replaced if the cable assembly to it is working properly. Those parts release the transmission from the motor while running thats why its doing that to you.

    Yes sounds like you swapped some wires somewhere if its sparking there. I am sorry to hear that the clutch job did not go well. I would suggest getting a local mechanic to take a look if you dont remember how it went together. If you wired the starter backward you could hurt your motor by spinning it backwards and alot of other issues as the alternator wires are in the same area as the starter.

    I am glad I could help. Sometimes we are too close to the problem.

Neutral safety switch may be bad. Other possible cause would be bad pressure switch inside

    On all cars they are located on the tranny.

    they too have the switch. Under the clutch pedal

  • Nate Stansfield
    Nate Stansfield May 05, 2010

    Test switch under the clutch, test starter and solenoid, and test negative battery cable for looseness and corrosion. Most likely starter or solenoid.

U have either a worn out clutch or one that is adjusted incorrectly (if it is adjustable), u need at least 3.4" inch of free play in pedal before clutch starts to engage, if the pedal is hard to push the clutch is worn out, in order to help further need the MAKE, THE MODEL AND YEAR OF THE CAR.

    if u are sure the clutch is not the issue, and be sure of this, then the syncro's in the transmission that allow smooth gear engagement are worn out, I would try one thing before u pull the transmission and overhaul it, change the fluid in the transmission and add a bottle of gear oil friction modifier, this can extend the life of worn parts in some cases. this is based on 35 years of auto repair experience, and many such problems as yours.

I have a 2001 cavalier manual transmission and it with not shift into 1 or 2 gear unless I really force it in after I get in gear it works fine until I start using 3,4or5 gear then I have to slam it in...


You may need a new clutch. By forcing it you are creating damage to the transmission. Upon having the first trouble you should have repaired the car. It is likely that you now need a clutch and transmission repair where at first you may have just needed the clutch. Stop driving it and have it towed before you break something else.

Buick lesabre transmission will not go into gear unless engine is high rpm then it jerks into gear and works fine it is worse when 1st started morning


Check your transmission fluid level. By putting it into gear at high RPM, you're forcing it and may be really damaging your transmission. The car needs to be running when you check your dipstick (its the red handled one.)

86 acura legend manual transmission shifting problems


so the problem is that you cannot get it into gear from a stop
(grinds trying to force into gear) . if you have a clutch pedal, what I mean is that clutch pedal has pressure behind it,moves up and down by itself, then its a clutch assy needs replaced.clutch disc/pressure plate/release bearing. if there is no pedal,falls to floor, its either clutch slave or clutch master failure issue(lost all fluid). but nothing points at needing a transmission,it should be fine

Auto Transmission


Try shifting the trans manually through the gears and see what happens,doesnt cost anything so,possibility valves are sticking in the valvebody after sitting so long,and manually shifting the car will force some of them to stroke in their bores unless REALLY stuck.Could also be shift solenoids.Scan for diagnostic trouble codes.A bad solenoid will have set a trouble code.Just FYI,1991 was the first year Ford went to all electronic trans,i had a 91 Sable.
