    our 1990 4runner v6 5 speed (223000+total milage) has been difficult to shift into reverse for about the last 10000+ miles. in the course of a 600 mile road trip (around 400 miles in) the 5th gear and the reverse went out. when shifting to where 5th should be - the 3rd gear engaged. first, second, third, and fourth are all a little rougher then usual but still work. we slowed down for the last 200 miles and ran it in 4th on the 101 going around 55 to 60+mph.

My holden viva 2008 manual cannot put into reverse


as the 5th gear and reverse gear are on the same shifter rail the there may be a problem with the selector fork for reverse gear. Undo the bolts that hold the shifter turret to the box and see if the reverse selector moves when you use a lever to move the rail

1990 Ford Bronco II manual transmission extremely hard to shift will not go into reverse


90 Ford Bronco II: You have to put it in whichever gear you want it in before you start it or it wont shift at all. Then once you are going its extremely hard to shift into the other gears. Reverse is the only gear that sounds like its grinding.

2003 chevrolet cavalier, manual transmission lost 2nd, 4th and reverse but still has 1st, 3rd and 5th gears.


Sounds like one of the levers inside the transmission is either broken or otherwise disengaged. Remove the shifter to see if you can see any obvious reason.

Hi i have a mr2 mk2 8 valve 1990 and i can't select reverse and 5th gear pops out under load and also grinds


You probably have a damage synchronizer gear for the selection of speed. Only way is to bring down transmission and overhaul completely. No rremedy for this, have to do it the hard way.
