SOURCE: bmw 3.0 x5 hesitation problems

Use 92 octane gas. These cars don't like 87 octane. The computer retards the engine timing which causes the hesitation. If the computer did not ****** the timing you would get valve ping or engine knock.

Mazda bravo b2600 gearbox growles and grumbles. cant select 2nd or 4th gear. 1st, 3rd,5th & reverse ok.


I am sorry to tell that the gearbox need to have some major repair. It is also not advisable to continue driving as the gearbox can breakdown completely leaving you stranded. At least one the cluster drive gears in the gearbox is damaged (gear tooth stripped off) that will result in that only some of the gears being able to be selected. The broken off tooth are still in the gearbox and due to the oil movement in the gearbox it can be "washed up " in between to engaged gears destroying those as well. This will happen up to the point where there are no gear selection at all.

Replaced clutch and now won't shift into 1st, 3rd, or 5th gear


if it worked before why a new clutch,,,(context wins, here/??????)
ok, so you the clutch is failing,
you never posted the symtoms, not really
does car start in gear with clutch depresses, or start to move
does car take off in 1st ?
or is it just moving fast issues>????
cant up shift, cant down shift
hard to shift. (blocks)
grinds.

my wild guess, based on no input is the clutch linkage,
was never adjustED
the side kicks (not sport 1.8L) all have
cable clutches, and the 1 inch rule stated here.
i bet you didnt adjust it or the linkage splines are damaged.
or the pedal is cracked , caused by bad cable.
always replace the cable first. is it breaks other things if not.

700r4 transmission, my transmission is doing high rpm before shifting up from 1st gear, but with no slippage in any gear, rest of the upshifts are firm.BUT, on kickdown from 3 to 2.gear its going as i


I don't know if this will help,but i set my tranny up to shift hard like you are describing. Just by putting a clip on the kick down cable. The book talks about this, its cool if you like that sort of thing?

Problems selecting 1st gear peugeot 106 1.1 zest


If the clutch is a problem you will have difficulty selecting 1st only as the gears would be spinning from the engine revs.. I would say that the front input shaft (clutch shaft) bearing is failing allowing miss alignment of the synchros and not allowing proper engagement of the gears synchro rings. It means removal and repair to the gear box so the clutch can be inspected while the box is out.

What is the function of the button near the auto transmission gear with writing c and s


It stands for "Sport" and Comfort", it changes the way the transmission shifts. Read a more detailed description below.

In C, the transmission starts from a stop in 2nd gear unless the kick down switch is activated (pedal to floor from standing start). The transmission will shift at lower RPM's. This is used for everyday driving. The S mode will cause the transmission to start in 1st gear regardless of pedal position and shift at higher rpm. This button has NO effect on suspension, Mercedes have separate suspension control switches.

Noise from gearbox/clutch when engine running . When the clutch is fully depressed the noise goes but returns when the clutch is released to bite point.


This is more than likely an input cluster bearing beginning to fail. It could also be a sign that the gearbox is simply out of oil. Check oil level & if it is ok it is more than likely the input cluster bearing in the gearbox. Low oil is usually accompanied by gear noise which is usually more noticeable in 1st, 2nd & reverse. Input cluster noise is much less noticeable when in gear due to load on input shaft.

1 st gear ok 2nd gear loses power rpm goes high


Check engine light on?

Is it a manual or auto? Assuming its a manual, is there an ABS light on? If so or if you hace changed the brake pads recently or even had the tires off or rotated, there could be a problem in the brake pad sensor or abs wheel speed sensor.

Check with Porsche service (your closest dealer) for recalls or TSB (Technical Service Bulletins) related to your concern and check the cayman/boxster owners clubs for similar posts and resolutions.

Hope that helps.

Mitsibishi colt 97 stuck in 1st gear


Your link broke off. What might have happened is the car got stuck in 1st, and when you shifted to second, the link broke. Not too clued up on your car, but you probably need to drop the gearbox. On some cars you can take out the shifter without having to drop the box and still see if the link is broken. Good luck
