What is a detent on a shifter


A detent is a notch or notches in a part used to keep a shifter (in this case) at a certain position. Be that an automatic or stick-shift. You can imply that the shift pattern on a stick-shift has detents for each gear as the shift lever locks and slides in and out of each position for that gear to work when the clutch is released. The detents on an automatic can resemble "steps" which engage a different gear or series of gears(drive) when a certain step is locked into position by a pressure bar or pressure lever.

Sometimes the pressure bar or pressure lever is spring loaded and your hand works against that tension to select a gear or function(drive). There may be an adjustment for the spring tension, or the spring is too weak and the shift assembly must be replaced.

With electronic shift solenoids, some of the shift assembly is different than with the old-style mechanical shifter. The action may be fly by wire with electronic shifts.

I do not know what you have, so there may be differences.

My BT50 Mazda truck won't allow me to go into 2nd gear, it's really difficult and you need a lot of pressure on the gear stick, first gear is difficult too... Just had the clutch changed a year ago... Any...


check the box turret where the lever pivots for gear selection. IT may be loose here and not allowing proper alignment with the shift rail. The problem is that the shift rail selector for 1st and 2nd is not sliding freely and it is controlled by a position de dent ball that is spring loaded . Check the manual but there should be a plug on the side of the box in line with the rail that when removed will have a spring under it and a ball. IF the spring is deformed -replace it as it may be jamming the movement of the ball. At this point I do not believe that you will have to go into the box or that it is a clutch problem. A clutch problem would be indicated by not able to get 1st gear but second is synchronised so there would be little difficulty in that selection. The lever would be free to move also.

Reverse stop plate problem?


IN the selector rails in the top section of the box there is a spring loaded de-dent ball that come into play when the lever is placed or pushed towards reverse. To select reverse you have to overcome this spring so that the selector rail can be moved. IF you can get a look at the top section of the box you may see a plug that is screwed in and facing the gear selector lever min the reverse position. If you can unscrew this plug there should be a spring and then a plunger of ball. I suspect that the spring may be broken or the plunger is stuck. If you can get to the gear lever pivot and remove it you will see the plunger that I am talking about . It should be in the removable top section

1994 ford ranger, My stick wont go into fifth gear position.


When you put the Shift Handle back into the TOP of the transmission, there is a spring on the Top and it that comes loose, it would cause this.

BTW... it happened to me

Pull the Stick UP, Clean the Ball, make sure all the parts are there and that the spring that you push against is there and reinstall

The gear stick has no resistance, I can only select two gears and it feels like Im stirring porridge when I do try and select a gear.


i'm unfamilar with the exact car but it sounds like part of your gear selection linkage is broken. This would be the part that is used to select the gears you can't select. I have seen some cars that use two cables, one for 1st and 2nd gear and the second for 3rd and 4th gear. I have also seen cars that use metal rods from the shifter to the transmission much like the cable setup, one rod for 1st and 2nd gear and the other rod for 3th and 4th gear.

Hope this in some way helps.

Noisey Clutch accelarating in 1st and 2nd gear


Sounds like its not sticking to the flywheel instantly but skippng a little bit and the squeek could be the clutch plate springs groaning.If the clutch and flywheel have been used hard it could have a heat glaze on it that resists grip Probably need to get flywheel machined when you eventualy change the clutch.
