    Have you checked the linkage? (connecting the gear shift handle to the rods that go to the trans.)

You need to have your transmission rebuilt.....more than likely you burned out second gear and when you reingauged first gear something inside broke and now you have no gears...

Sorry no idea here iam a europeon mechanic with limited experiance in auto boxes ,but on the back of the torque converter is two lugs that drive the front oil pump and i can only suspect that you didnt line these up ,when you change a auto box you mount the torque converter onto the gearbox first then put the whole assembly in not leave the converter on the engine and push the box up or you end up with a problem like this

I purchased a 96 Metro 1.3L 5 speed about a year ago, and it was hard to get it into gear, and it would often pop out of 3rd gear when driving. Now I have trouble going from first to second without...


your best bet is to get a tranny from an auto wrecker, and replace the clutch while you're at it. If the tranny is that problematic, it's not worth fixing. The clutch kit, which includes the disc, release bearing, and pressure plate, would be under $150, and a used tranny probably $100. Try and find one with reasonably low mileage. Good luck.

Old fluid and filter, maybe the modulator. Could need tranny service but changing the fluid is cheapest route to start with.

I have a 2002 mustang GT 5 speed,and it grinds going into 3rd gear,every other gear is fine,any suggestions? thanks steve


these are just some suggestions to help diagnose, 1. check gear oil level low level can cause gear free spin if not efficient amount of gear oil causing a grind as entering gear. 2. If you do some agressive driving, or rest your foot on the clutch frequently while driving, can cause excessive heat in clutch causing warpage of clutch or flywheel, once it is warped will cause vibration to transmission causing shifting issues sometimes only in one gear if you have a service boot on your transmission bell housing you can pull this of and monitor smoothness of clutch an fly wheel while running and tranny in nuetral excessive runout is a sign of something warped. 3. is not so not easy most of the time third gear is the main gear for the syncronizers, generally the first gear to show issues when they are failing, The transimission would have to be pulled torn apart and inspected to truly diagnose this as your problem. Good luck

1994 325 BMW shifting from 1st - 2nd gear is hard and grinding noise, does this indicate a posssible issue wth the gear box, clutch, or .......


unfortunately yes it does.its sounds like your 2nd gear synchro is out.unfortunately your tranny needs to come out to fix it.does it only between 1-2? or other gears? if all gears your cutch is goin but just between 2 specific gears a synchro times the gear teeth so they lock in and its off and teeth on the gears are the grinding you are hearing.sorry to have to tell yah that one.i always loved my old 325 is model always fun to drive.
