Question about Dodge Challenger

1 Answer

My A833 gearbox keeps getting stuck in 3rd gear (in 1974 Barracuda with 340) We have just put new synchros in and new selector tabs. We had the problem with two spring ends under one selector tab causing too much load which we rectified. It drives fine for 2 days then jams. It is always only one selector tab that sticks up.

My 2002 Audi Allroad is stuck in 3rd gear, how can I get it out?


Remove gearbox and strip it down to replace the damaged parts if it is an internal fault or get under the gearbox and look at the selector rods for binding or damage if it is a manual box
Or take it to a garage to get the work done if an auto box

I was driving to work this morning and was in 3rd gear, went to down shift at a stop sign and its stuck in 3rd gear. 1988 jeep wrangler. It has been grinding the gear for a few weeks now everytime I change...


The 3rd Gear Synchro is worn or damaged, which is why it grinds when you try to upshift or downshift into 3rd gear. When it goes out completely you will have a very hard time shifting into 3rd gear, since the Synchro lines up the gears to make shifts smooth and easy.

1972 Triumph Spitfire, 3rd gear grinding


Jumping out of third was a common problem with the Spitfire quick changing up from forth gear would beat the syncro and chip the teeth on the drive dog then the bits would stop the syncro from engaging fully and it would jump out. If you replaced the syncro and the drive hub it may just be a bit stiff, the selector also wore quite quickly and misaligned the drive hub causing it to be hard to select.
I will scratch about in my very old manuals and see if I can find the spitfire gearbox manual, If I can I will post it.

2003 honda civic jumps out of 3rd gear when I take my foot off of the gas pedal


it sounds like there is a pin after breaking on the gear selector in your gearbox you will have to take out the gearbox and replace the pin , if your after doing to much driving on it you might have to replace the 3rd gear selector , this is only a guess because i had a 03 toyota hiace with the same problem and thats what was wrong

Manual gearbox query


hi fro uk this is a common problem on many cars not just hyundai and ita most common cause of synchro mesh failure on2nd and 3rd gear is believe or not a bad driving habit! it goes like this when you set off in 1st then cange up 2nd gear whilst accellerating holding gearstick? in back position then change up 3rd gear still holding gearstick! in a forward position then? when up to 4th gear we let go of gearstick?? now just by holding g/stick whilst in 2nd and 3rd the slightest pressure also brings the synchro ring into play whilst gear already selected! so inevitably the synchro ring wears away to extent that they no longer work properly so the gearbox is none synchromesh on 2nd 3rd gears and on occasions? on 5 speed box 4th gear can become a victim ? hope you understand ? just quietly observe some peoples habits with manual boxes? as for repairs?cost? this is not a difficult job to replace all synchro rings but box has to be stripped and assesed ? the cost could escalate? but if you want quick turnround? a matter of hours? a recon box with warranty? is other option ? BUT would not advise risking a 2nd hand box probably worse or same as ? whichever choice you take you can check clutch at same time if milage is high? now some good advice! personally this is not a dire problem just a niggleproblem which if you take time in changing gears you can o/come gritty gear change save money for now till it is more affordable ? if you know any old timers truck drivers ? these are the guys who will show you how to drive /change gears none synchro mesh before it was ever invented ? hope this helps daughter but practice on gears and rid of the bad driving habit so many do not realise they have will make her a better experienced!driver

Wont shift into reverse


Regarding the reverse problem. If it's not going into reverse at all and the shifter seems to come up against a dead stop then it's probably the 5th gear synchro. I've recently had the same problem with my 99 prelude. The first time it happened I changed the reverse shift fork because the mechanism was worn. This worked for a while, however, the same thing happend a short while ago. I took my gearbox apart and a friend pointed out that there were some score marks on the synchro. I changed the 5th gear synchro, which is on the same selector rod as reverse gear. This has cured the problem. The synchro cost me £140 from Honda. Hope this is of some help to you.

Gearbox


sounds like the synchronizers in the trans are starting to fail ask her it it has become harder to shift between certain gears (i.e. 1st-2nd, 2nd-3rd, 3rd-4th, or 4th-5th) does the clutch slip at all or does the clutch pedal feel different? if its a hydrolic clutch (almost if not all newer cars have hydrolic clutches) the clutch master cylinder may be low it looks like a small brake master cylinder (the clutch master cylinder is generaly round) and usualy is located directly under it, next to it or offset to the right OR left and located under the brake master cylinder the clutch will usualy take DOT 3 brake fluid or hydrolic clutch fluid it will tell you what type it takes right on the cap

if it isn't low on fliud and the clutch isn't slipping or not releasing/ engaging properly, its time for a new or rebuilt trans
