I just put a new slave cylinder and clutch master cylinder on a 2003 Honda accord 3.0 V6 six speed and you can shift the gears without the clutch pedal pushed in or the car started


that is normal if the gear synchro dogs ( teeth) are in line in the box
problems concerning a clutch are
slashing gears when trying to engage first or reverse with the pedal to the floor ---needs bleeding
slipping when the clutch pedal is released--- slipping clutch from the pressure not being released ---problem in master cylinder
reverse gear is the only gear not synchronised so even with the clutch depressed it is possible sometimes that it will not go into gear unless you let the clutch up to move the gears in the box then attempt to re-engage reverse

Cant find my reverce 1997 caviler


Check your owners manual for the correct shift pastern...It is a natural H pattern, with 5th gear upper right...reverse should be all the way to the right and lower right to engage...the knob does not always indicate the correct pattern...may have been changed...also be sure it is a 5 speed...most of these Cavaliers were 4 speeds...with reverse being upper right instead of 5th gear upper right...confirm in your owners manual if possible...will show illustration...Hope this helps.

Reverse sensors are very quite and come on as soon as reverse is engaged


check with the dealer service centre to see if it is possible to turn up the volume for the reversing sensors . I would expect them to come on when the reverse gear is engaged as that is when they are supposed to work . When you are going to go in reverse.

I have a 91 honda accord with an automatic trans. & when i shift into reverse it refuses to engage & makes a high pitch gear slipping grinding sound ! NOT GOOD ! ,I just replaced the transmission con


Definitely not good. The transmission is slipping internally due to worn gears and clutch packs. It will have to come out for rebuilding, IMO. Have a transmission shop check it out.
Good luck.

Im thinking about buying this 1996 cadillac for cheap but when you first start it theres a little noise the owner says it needs new spider geers is that expensive or is it a good buy


spider gear noise would only be heard while driving since they are part of the differential not motor if it has northstar engine be very careful they are known have head bolt failure resulting in blown head gaskets very pricey repair

2002 Volks Jetta GLS-difficult to shift into reverse gear


no recals but if you are the oreginal owner you have untill 2010or 80,000 miles before the warranty runs out, and if you are past that I bleive you will need a T.C.M transmission control module.

Reverse wont work properly, sometimes have to pull hard


The transmission type wasn't specified as to manual or automatic,as both were available on 91-96 Stealth's,but from the complaint,i presume manual trans.If it is the manual trans,5th gear and Reverse gear are usually on the same shift rail.So part of the diagnosis is to pay attention to 5th gear for any problems.Another part of the diagnosis is the clutch pedal and hydraulics that activate the clutch.When the problem is happening,try this:pump the clutch pedal rapidly,and repeatedly,then try to engage Reverse.If it goes right into Reverse,then the clutch hydraulic system needs to be inspected.Good luck.
