There is a clutch fork and it's bolted to the transmission bell housing. It's what pushes on the clutch bearing, disengaging the transmission from the engine, which allows you to safely change gears. If it's broken, you will surely have to replace that clutch fork in order for you to do any gear shifting in the future.

The Pacifica will not shift past 4th gear. It shifts normally through 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th gear. Their is no high reeving RPS, no clunking, no lurching. It will just not shift past 4th gear.


is there an OD button that might have been pressed .if it has lots of miles on it it could be needing a flush job . last one I got done was around 100.00 at jiffy lube.

I have a saturn sl2 with a 5 speed transmission. i was driving and heard a ping and now 2nd 4th and reverse are gone but i still have 1st 3rd and 5th. i have no idea where to start fixing the problem


If you have inspected the shift linkage and found no missing or loose parts, then unfortunately an internal shift mode fork, syncro assembly,shift rail or possibly a snap ring has been damaged. This is not an easy fix on any vehicle and will require transmission removal to diagnose. Before the trans is removed, inspect the shift linkage while someone moves the gear selector to all gears. This would be the best case scenario, internal damage, of course, would be the worst.

4L 60E - 2001 k1500 will not shift into 3-4. Oil is not burn't and stifts great into1-2


  • No 3rd or 4th gear: “3-4” clutches are worn out. R&R. The car is safe to drive (in 2) until you can get it fixed.
  • Trans shifts into gear harshly, car feels sluggish off the line, No 1st, 4th or TCC lockup available, Manual 2nd, 3rd and Reverse are only available gears, CEL is on: Transmission is either in limp-home mode or has lost electrical power. If there are lots of error codes in the PCM, check the under hood fuse that powers the transmission, and if it pops again, look for a short in that circuit like an O2 sensor harness touching exhaust. Otherwise, check PCM codes for a particular fault in the transmission causing the PCM to put it in limp-home mode.
  • No 1st or 4th available; trans shifts 2nd to 3rd by itself in D or OD and locks the converter : Shift A solenoid failed. Easy fix in the pan. Or a wiring problem from PCM to trans.. or PCM.
Check to see if your transmission is in the limp mode, which would only give you 2nd, 3rd and reverse gears. No 1st or 4th gear.

I have just bought a 51 plate a3 1.8. Sometimes it wont go into third and fifth gear as it should. When trying to change into these gears it doesn't crunch it just won't let you put it in gear. The best...


The possiblities that come to mind are
1 Bad synchro in transmission 2 bad bearing(s) in transmission input shaft.   3 Bent shift linkage or shift fork (I doubt this, but it's possible)
Only number 3 is relatively cheap.  I'd go back to where/who you bought the car from, if it was that way when you bought it, and ask them to help.  It can't hurt.

Using force is NOT the solution.  If the syncros are bad, until you get them replaced, you'll be better off to determine the RPM difference between 2&3 gears (maybe 800-1000?) and also 4&5 gears (maybe 500-800?) and learn to put a modest amount of effort at exactly the time the rpms fall into that diffference.  
Example Say the difference between 2nd gear at 3500 RPM and 3rd gear is 1000 RPM, then when you take it out of 2nd for an upshift to third,  delay until the RPMs are just getting to 2500. If you are on a budget and can't fix the transmission (it's going to be big bucks) you may find you can get pretty good at this.    It is possibly to shift a car this way without even using the clutch, although I don't recommend this and it takes a great deal of practice and luck.
While you have this problem, don't downshift into 3rd,  just run the RPMs down in 4th (say to 2000 or less) until you can shift into 2nd at an acceptable RPM. The least amount of shifting you can do until you resolve this the better.
Another choice until you can fix it, is to just run up the RPMs in 2nd and then shift to 4th, and then forget you have a fifth gear.  This is much better than forcing, it's possible to do more damage by forcing. 
Is it hard to get into 3rd from 4th AND 2nd?
