2005 pt cruiser, stuck in 5th gear


Check the gear linkage cable (very common problem) look down inside engine bay towards top of bell case (thats where the linkage meets with selector arm. Get someone to wiggle the gear stick while you observe selector arm. (if you move the air box out of the way you can reach down and de-select the gear with your hand- should get you neutral at least)... I'll keep an eye out for any reply...

Sounds like you have a bad shifter or a bad slave cylinder. Check the fluid in the reservoir and if you're losing some, then you need to see where the leak is coming from. If it's at the slave cylinder, you're in for an expensive repiar.

My 1996 Mitsubishi Mirage LS 2-door coupe. 1.2l Stick shift Standard hesitates in all gears. If i press the gas to much it starts to smell like something is burning. My transmission works cause i can...


Your clutch is slipping. If you hold your brakes, can you release the clutch without the engine killing? Do you smell the burning at this time? Then you need to replace your clutch. Do it soon before it damages the flywheel.

Help im having problems selecting 1st and 2nd gear and the gear stick is very lose on my 99 206 any ideas?


there is a central plastic ball fitted to your gear stick. Open the leather cover and check every single ball (i.e one in center, 2 on the side and locking balls of gear wires). May be you need to remove the whole central console to have a look at your gear stick main frame. Its not complicated but time consuming. It better to take it out and check it completely rather than having the same problem again. The problem with gear shifting could be on gearbox side as you only mentioned the 1st and 2nd gear. But sort this thing out then you'll know better. If you need any help then pls inform.
