Advice required re: Manual Gearbox Problem - Clutch drag symptoms when changing from 1st to 2nd gear.


problems with a clutch system will result in grating first gear or reverse gear as the input shaft is still being turned by the engine. 2nd gear is syncro operated so any mismatching of gear speeds will be overcome by the syncro ring of the gears. By double de clutching you state that the problem is eased somewhat and this indicates that the gear box is at fault ( shaft bearings, syncro rings, gear teeth ) hard movement of the gear lever would indicate failed gear cable ,linkage or gear lever pivot problems. What you describe is a gear box fault. I would take it back and tell them to fix it or exchange it . Keep all records of conversations and dealings as you may have to get legal help to have the shop full their warranty agreement. Time to remove ,repair and replace a gear box would not exceed 12 hours in an accredited shop

Wh does 1st gear jump out on accelerator release ?


There are a few things to check. Engine and transmission mounts replace any broken or perished . 1st gear selector shaft has a indent ball and spring to locate the shaft when in gear, check the spring is not broken. The gear box bearings may be worn giving the drive shaft to much end play. also check gear shift linkage is not worn.

Take it back

Did you not test it out--- before paying
& driving off?

Maybe the trans has some internal wear,
from the previous owners habits

I have a 42re trans (4x2). My previous trans would always pull out in 2nd gear shifting regular thru the rest. Rarely did it pull out in 1st gear. Eventually the trans went while on the highway. Vehicle...


2001 grand cherokee?
nor years of all parts swapped.
swaps are super complex topics, endless possibles.

dont expect magic from any TCM.
they cant tell you ever possible way things can be wrong
it will fail to shift right if things are wrong,
the trans TCM can go to limphome mode, read the service manual chapter 21 yet its free, posted here 300 times.
forget the silly engine , light (CEL) use only a scan tool one that can read all factory codes not some $20 tool.
CEL lamp is for failing smog. only. never trust it, if out.

i say bad shift solinoids.
the TCM can see late shift error.s but maybe not all.
stick in 1st is a hard failure.
all inputs to the TCM must be correct for the shift to 2nd happens.
check all inputs.
if those are then see if the TCM did shift to 2nd, but the solenoids ignored the logic inputs to the solenoids.
solenoids have many failure mods
dead. (stuck closed)
stuck open, valve open.
or leaking. (leaking can cause stuck in 1st and confuse any TCM)

leaking means breached, valve leaks where it must not. ever.

Hard Clutch and 1st and 2nd Gear Shifting is hard


The clutch bearing is supposed to have a groove on the inside where it slides on the shaft That groove is supposed to have a heavy grease applied to it to prevent the bearing running dry on the collar it slides on.Regardless of your driving style, that grease is intended to remain there for the life of the clutch, (generally every clutch I have ever replaced still had some remaining lube there unless the bearing itself failed from a material defect which caused it to overheat and cause that grease to then run out of the retaining groove) I'm not there and can't see the old parts, but in my opinion the first clutch may have failed partially because of your lack of skill in using a stick shift vehicle but the second failure obviously is not your fault if the information you have posted is correct.
Good luck
