Loosen the bearing nuts, you still want them to spin after they are tight, dont torque them too much or they wont spin and you might damage a brand new bearing to worthless, also look into your clutch cable and make sure its adjusted correctly

I changed the flywheel on my 96 for explore.. n after i put it all back together. It didnt. Catch gears anymore..

Sounds like when you pulled the transmission out, your torque converter came out of the transmission front fluid pump. If it did, and you bolted it back together with out it being "locked" into the front pump, the front pump gears more than likely were broken, and the transmission will need to be removed and repaired.

After putting in a clutch, main tranny shaft bearing and counter shaft bearing, truck is back together and stuck in a high gear

Make sure you replace the thrust bearings (shims) as otherwise it will not select the correct gear or jam and select 1st and 3rd at the same time!.

Gear shift wont shift into any gears, transmission is ok , i had to lift the hood and manually put the car in drive, as a matter of fact all the gears work if i move it with my hand. My son said he pulled...

Most likely the shift cable is bad. To be sure, have someone move the shifter back and forth while you watch the transmission linkage
if there is little or no movement the cable is bad or it's disconnected
from the shifter. Hope this helps.

Gear shift is in park but won't release key, button doen't pop out

In the Cobalt the problem is that there is a small bar in the shifter that is supposed to hit a micro switch and that bar can came out of place.
It will not hitting that micro switch to allow the ignition to release the key when the car is in park.
What to do is tear the center council apart and pull the whole shift mechanism out and reposition the bar and put it all back together. Yes it's a pain and time consuming
Good luck and hope this helps, and be careful not to damage the ignition lock, you could damage the wires in the ignition lock for the anti theft.

Rebuilding 1995 honda civic transmission

Did you make sure that the tork converter was all the way forward first if not then you will need to take the transmission back out and make sure that the converter has either automatic trany fluid in it or 184/85 gear oil depending on whether or not you have automatic trasmission or manual fill it up until you can put your finger in it and then rotate converter clock wise and it should slip into place before putting trasmission back into car and if after doing that and you still are having trouble take it to a transmission shop to have them do it for you.

1987 Volkswagen Golf - speedometer problem

Well I would verify the trany speed gear is "ate up" first, theres only one 10mm bolt that holds it in place, sure the area around the speedo cable is very CLEAN before removing it any dirt in there would make things bad to say the least. If you pull the cable out the gear is attached to the cable if it looks good then put it back together and remove your cluster (speedo and other gauges inside) I suggest you pick up a repair manual at a big auto store on MK1-MK2 vdubs (82-92) to explain how to remove speedo cable from back of cluster its kinda of tricky getting your fingers back there and pressing it together to get it to release. Once out drive the car and see if that cable is turning from the inside if it is then its your speedo gauge that is faulty. Grab a cluster from a scrap yard, if that cable is NOT turning then the gearing inside the trany is messed up which would mean taking the trany apart to repair it. If that was the case you would be cheaper to replace the whole trany with a used one. Good luck

For gear shift removal to replace clutch

remove the nut from the stud and put it on the other end and when you tighten it up it will pull the stud out. when you put it back to together switch the nut back to where it was first and tighten it up to hold the shifter in place. I know it sounds screwed up but that is the way it works
