Try shifting when the engine is off; if it shifts easily, your problem is probably not in the linkage.
Sometimes the clutch slave cylinder does not engage fully or the clutch disk can warp slightly, causing the difficulty in shifting.

5-Speed transmission;Won't shift into gear.


If you can shift it with car off, but not with engine running, it is a clutch poroblem. Check the fluid level in the clutch master cylinder on the firewall next to the brake master cylinder. If it won't shift with engine off, either the shift linkage is binding, or there is an internal problem in the transmission.

My 93 sentra 5 speed wont come out of 4th gear


If the shift linkage is not binding on the outside of the transaxle, then something inside like a shift fork has broken. The transaxle will have to be removed for repair. Such is the way with 20 year old cars where old things break, bad luck for you. It will be an expensive repair. An alternative is a used 5 speed from a salvager. That and a new clutch could have you going again in short order.

This is a 1987 325i convertible, with a manual 5 speed. The problem is, that it pops out of first gear, when starting at a dead stop. It will stay in gear, if it is moving at all. So you can start in...


Generally when you have a problem with your car 'popping' out of a gear, it the shifter linkage. Shift linkage has a lot to do with the transmission. I recommend going to a shop you trust and asking them to check the shift linkage and adjust if needed. If that doesn't fix it, its your tranny and that will be expensive.

My ford taurus (2001) wont shift into park!It seems like the shift itself is hard to move into the other gears! I have the emergency brake on to make sure it won't backout the driveway. Help me please!!


how many miles on the car and or transmission, if it feels like the shifter is binding then the linkage is most likely misadjusted, worn, or bent. usally if its the transmission then you will notice performance problems
