Change clutch and pressure plate now will not engage in first and second just makes a whining sound but works fine in third fourth fifth and reverse what could be the problem

Good evening from Cyprus Matthew. Is you clutch system Hydraulic or with cable? If it is hydraulic operated,just ask for somebody to help you bleed the system and see whether the fault has been resolved. Sometimes whilst removing the hydraulic slave cylinder from the gearbox housing even without stripped manage to create air bubbles into the system and makes the clutch operation hard life. Also check whether the gear oil you used -if you did- is the correct in specifications ( Viscosity ) according to the make of your vehicle. Good luck.

hi if the gearlever is all over the place start by checking the remote control rods to the gearbox see if any of the bushes have worn if they are ok check all the mountings that hold the remote assemabley check the rear engine and gearbox mountings if all these check out then the problem is in the selectors in the box if it crunchs when changing down the syncromesh bulk ring has worn and or the complete hub it sounds like the gearbox needs overhauling next check you have no lights out brake lights as well if ok check all the connectors to the lights one at a time start at the back and check for bad grounds on the lights what mileage has it done paul
