Hi, My car goes into gears whilst idling without even pushing the clutch in. any ideas as to what they might have done wrong? they were fixing the engine before this as the crank shaft pulley broke.


You mean the stick just falls into gear? while engine is running and the car lurches forward? I would say the gates are wore out in the transmission, but even at that, it should not go in gear unless you have the clutch pushed in, IF it were to try to engage while car is running, the shifter would come in contact with the gear in the trans and grind because the clutch would not be engaged. Maybe somehow the linkage got bent on the transmission while they were replacing the pulley on the car or a bushing broke on the shifter linkage?

My transmission is clunking and grinding when I shift from park to reverse to drive


Does engage and drive normally? Because they only grind when you don't stop completely, gear grind. It is different to normal trans clutch plates engaging while you're riding on the brakes while shifting, they do make the 'clunk' - engaged - and then as you release the brake it grinds 'er er er er'.
So unless your trans doesn't drive normally, I'd say it's normal.

CLUTCH ON CITROEN C2 KEEPS DROPPING TO FLOOR AND WHINING SOUND WHEN MOTOR IS RUNNING


It jump because the clutch disc itself is good, but the clutch is not engaging-the pedal is not making the clutch engage. When it does, then you can shift without grinding, then you can shift period. Clutch pedal operates a cable or it operates a hydraulic system-they both, which ever one you have, move the clutch fork on the transmission bell housing just a bit to cause the clutch to disengage the transmission from the engine's flywheel...so you can shift, see, easy, smooth shifts, no problem, no grinding. Your clutch itself is okay, the pedal is just not operating it.

Hello, I was just changing gears and the clutch was still working but the gears stopped engaging. Any ideas what could be wrong?


There are three parts to a standard shift transmission's clutch assembly. Clutch disk, Pressure plate, and release bearing. If any of these fail there is a loud noise. Since you haven't heard anything disturbing, I think these parts are OK. If everything was running fine until the moment the gears stopped engaging the problem may lie in the transmission itself. If I understand correctly the gears are grinding instead of going into the next gear. Have the transmission checked out to see if it is low on oil or damaged. A mechanic will drain the oil and check for pieces of metal.

My 2005 Pontiac Sunfire intermittantly grinds when shifting into first gear. This has been happening ever since I took the car in for its 60,000 mile tune-up early this year. I replaced my clutch three...


I believe the problem is the first gear synchronizer. They are what allows the gears to mesh together without grinding. As they wear, they are less able to mesh the gears together without grinding. The first gear gets used the most, so that one usually wears first. Each gear has them, so as time goes on, the others will wear. To replace the synchronizer/s, involves diaasembling the transmission. I would have the transaxle fluid level checked, maybe as simple as that. But usually it's the prior.

The clutch needs an adjustment. What's happening is the clutch isn't completely engaging while you shift, causing the grinding. Once properly adjusted, the grinding will disappear.

How do i check if it needs oil on the manual transmission because the shifts are hard to change when running or is there something else to do beside a new clutch already done


Hard shifting may be caused be the clutch not releasing properly.If you have a new clutch your problem might be caused by your hydraulic clutch release system.When stopped and idling you should be able to shift gears without grinding.Reverse grinding may indicate a clutch release problem.You should have some clutch pedal travel up from the floor before you feel it engaging.The oil fill check is either at the speedo or a plug at the axle shaft level.Be sure to use factory recommended fluid.Gear oil is not a proper fluid.

Won't go into gear to drive. may be transmission?


If the clutch has never been changed most likely it is that. The way you can check it is by removing the transmission and looking at the clutch disc. It could be transmission syncros but I am willing to bet you just need a new clutch.
