Cant get golf in 1st gear


If you'd said 1st and reverse I would have said clutch. First check your gear sgift rod for aligbnment. If it is out when you push the gear lever left to engage 1st your selector might be somewhere between 1st and 2nd. Next check all the linkage bushes for wear. Those also cause misalignment. Last thing to check is the gearbox itself for synchromesh damage.

1988 wrangler goes foward but not in reverse. It won't engage in reverse. 1st, 3rd, 4th are great 2nd winding sound. what needs to be fixed or replaced?


it sounds like you have 2 bad gears, 2nd gear may be fine for an hour or for ten years, theres no telling on that. your reverse gear is probably shelled out. your best bet is to rebould your transmission or buy a new one, sorry

When i try to shift from park to reverse the car jumps into gear very hard when it is shifed from reverse to drive same problem exept the car seems to be in a high gear very slow to get moving like i have...


Go to Trans repair shop NOW!! Major electromechanical problems are present starting with too high of internal line pressure causing harsh gear engagement, the second concern is your 1st gear clutch pack will not apply or there is major internal damage.

I'm sorry for the bad news..

Whining noise when engaging 1st or reverse.


i had a nissan pickup that would whine in all gears except 4th...it started out with 1st then reverse then went to the rest...solution was new transmission...or rebuild cause the syncronizers or the gears them selves are being chewed up...the new transmission was cheaper then a rebuild. or take it to somewhere that will do free diag on the transmission.

My Ford Escort van W reg. which I have just purc hased has problems with stiff gears particularly into reverse.


One of the most common causes of hard shift is the clutch no fully disengaging, also do you put it in 2nd before you try 1st or reverse, it helps stop gear motion in the trans which eases the effort to engage the non-synchro gears, which first and reverse are most likely.
