    without a nice road test i cannot say for certain ,it could be the clutch playing up or low oil in gearbox ,and a multitude of things in between but get a proper oil can with engine oil in and nice flexible spout ,then where the clutch arm comes out of the bell housing poke the spout down and try to feel the spigot shaft and the bearing and oil it as the bearing can get sticky on the spigot shaft housing ,sorry but without a nice drive i cannot say exactly what the problem is

You have a slave cylinder for this trans. Pump the clutch pedal 25 times with the engine OFF. Then start it and try shifting it into each gear while parked. If this make it work your slave cylinder needs to be replaced

Trans slips between 2nd and 3rd shift


MV could be the problem. Always work thru issue before buying ANY can of additive. Generally those things just mask the issue..not fix it. Change your fluid,and if that doesnt correct it,then take it in and have the tranny bands tightened. most shops do this relatively in expensively.

Hard time getting car in gear


Sounds like your clutch may be in need of a replacement. If you cut the engine off does it go into gear easily? Then it's not the linkage.

Gear Shift very stiff, doesnt want to go into 1st gear or reverse


Continued operation like this and $100 would have been the cheap fix. If this is a hydraulic clutch, check the fluid level in the clutch master cylinder. Most take Dot 3 brake fluid and it will say on the cap. It is located on the fire wall near brake master cylinder

I have a 1998 accord 4cyl coupe manual trans. The


A clutch issue youtend to have more of an engagement problem with 1st and reverse gear for a small time period before you notice other gears.You want to check the clutch hydrolic system for any leaks(clutch slave at transmission,clutch master,which you look for leakage on interior above clutch pedal)and at fluid resevoir.you also want to double check condition of trans fluid. strongly recommend using only HONDA BRAND MANUAL TRANS. FLUID when doing maintinance,fluid should be replaced every 30k on this car.The Honda brand fluid is like night and day on these cars,it WILL make a difference in shifting!!TRust Me on this point! Sorry now back to your main clutch issue,when driveing and you go to shift gears and normally notice grinding,with clutch pedal in shft out of gear and before engageing it into next gear do a double pump of clutch pedal then see if when continuing to next gear if it engagees smoother.if so you know you have without a dout a clutch pressure plate/disc problem. I can tell you that in twenty years the only manual transmissions themselves that ever had problems were due to outside influences(gear oil in transmission,improper driveing,etc.)let me know what you find and we can go from there..JOEL

I just installed a clutch in my 96 saab 900s 5speed transmssion with a 2.3 l nonturbo and also a clutch cable and now I cant get it to go into reverse or 5th gear . Anyone have a clue ?


Loosen shift coupler where you disconnected from rod.Remove shift boot at front there is a hole put an allen or dowell in it to lock the shifter on trans side where shift rod exits tranny theres another hole for a pin. Line these up and tighten coupler and that should do it.

No reverse for 1995 Saab 900s


This is almost certainly the case. The gears selector on the gearbox is worked by rods connected to the gear lever and minor mispositioning (often when you have had a clutch change) will cause this issue. Reverse always seems to be affected most by this issue. You might be aboe to fix it yourself, but without a little knowledge you could of course make it worse. I wouldn't spend out on a SAAB dealership to fix this though, a confident and competent local mechanic will probably sort it out for you at a much reduced cost.
