Likely the forks on the shift rail inside the trans are sliding on the shaft or are worn. I believe your unit needs to be removed to check this.

SOURCE: my shifter on my 86 ford mustang is stuck in firdt gear what coul

Hi, if your car is manual gear box and its stuck in first then it could be one of a couple of things if the gear stick is solid and wont move out of the first gear possition then the chances are that it could be either the clutch has gone or the thrust bearing on the clutch has failed these parts both come in a clutch kit.

you could try rocking the car backwards and forwards whilst moving the gearstick to see if it frees up out of first gear.

Can you start the car up with the clutch pressed down and drive the car in first gear as normal if this is the case and you can drive the car in first gear and the clutch seems fine then it could be a more serious fault inside the gearbox even broken selector in the box.

let me know the outcome then i can assist you further ok

SOURCE: My 1994 Ford Explorer automatic transmission won't

Hi there,

As your Auto transmission is fully electronic, it could be anything from faulty sensors sending incorrect signals to the trans computer, or faulty internal components. Your best bet is to have the trans computer scanned for 'fault codes' (as the computer monitors and retains all faults) by your local Ford dealership.

This process will identify the likely component/s which are causing this problem.

My guess is, there may be a problem with the 2nd clutch (yes that's right, automatics have internal clutches!), input and/or output shaft switches sending incorrect signals to the computer.

But, there could be so many other possibilities....so, I recommend you get the codes scanned and go from there.....

SOURCE: I have a 1984 Ford Ranger 4 Speed manual shift.

Hi,
You have the same problem as a previous guy, its the ball and socket at the end of the gearstick, its worn out, or just popping out of it's socket so the bolts holding it down or the large nut the is holding the gearstick in needs tightening. So best to remove it, check for wear and if it is ok then use a loctite glue to refit the main nut over the gear lever.
Hope this helps, let me know how you get on.

Strange noise coming from transmission


There are 2 rods inside the transmission that had each gear on. The upper rod which is also the input shaft that goes through the clutch has 1, 3, 5. The lower rod that sits right under it has the other gears on it. Each one of those rods have bearings on each end. The upper rod may bearing may be bad and may have come apart inside the trans.

My 1994 5.0 mustang doenst want to idle and dies when u put it in gear. any ideas?


Hi,
The idle air control (IAC) that is located on the side of the throttle body may be stuck closed. This controls idle speed and cold start idle speed. It can be cleaned if it is removed and disassembled.
Hope this helps

96 escort manual 5 speed stuck in reverse


Is the stick moving? or is it 'stuck' in the reverse position as well? There are adjustments but it seems more likely that your 'stick' has come unstuck from the gear levers that actually put the gears in the right spot. Have someone look at the transmission while you move the stick to see if the levers are moving and put your response here.

1996 mustang gt poping out of gear


Usually when a manual tranny pops out of gear, it's the syncronizers. For sure, get a "Hands On" second opinion on this, but my experiences point in that direction.

Good Luck.

your car has a ford AOD-E if it's an automatic, if it were a 5 speed manual it would be a T-45, the T-56 is a 6 speed manual transmission that was found in the 2003 and 2004 cobra models.
