Good day;
You say the agent told you this, Have you had it into the shop? It's should be cover under your warranty. I would go that way first. Let me know how it goes.

Cheers.

Is it normal for the revs to stay up when changing gear in a 2002 4x4 3.0L turbo diesel navara?


do they revs drop off when taking pressure off accelerator pedal when out of gear? if only staying high during gear change it would suggest a worn clutch friction/pressure plate so the engine isn't slowing down when clutch is depressed .I'd also have the OBD codes read to see if there is a sensor/switch at fault , but sounds like the clutch to me

I have a 1998 Ford Laser manual hatchback. It will not go into first gear or reverse when the motor is running. I have to turn the motor off and put it in gear and then restart the motor. It also sometimes...


If you have a cable operated clutch then I suspect that it is stretched or is breaking and not completely disengaging the clutch. First and reverse are the 2 gears that require the clutch to be completely disengaged. As for the rest if the engine rpms and road speed are close to compatible then the synchro rings will allow engagement of the gears no problem. Check the gear selector lever pivot pin in the top of the turret on the gear box as it may be loose or worn and that makes for a sloppy gear stick movement.

Not sure when overdrive is on or off


Overdrive acts like a final gear. It's easily noticed if it is on or off when cruising at higher speeds, as when operating the switch you will notice the engine revs alternate between higher and lower rev ranges.
When the engine revs drop, then overdrive is on, and when they rise, then it is effectively off.

The overdrive function works just like any other gear in that it reduces the torque from the engine to the wheels, and allows the engine speed to drop. This isn't always beneficial when climbing hills or towing however, or when driving hard, as you may prefer that the gearbox wasn't always changing gear into overdrive, as overdrive reduces the torque from the engine as a means to increase fuel economy and reduce stress. It is for this reason that the overdrive can be disengaged, effectively reducing the number of gears in the gearbox which you have available to you.

So simply put, for most drivers, in most circumstances, they will not need to turn the overdrive off.

In answer to the light on/off, the majority of vehicles have overdrive in the 'OFF' position when the light is on. It's a reminder light (amber) that you likely aren't employing the best fuel saving technique.

Engine over-run between gears


This is a very common problem for ford. I have the same thing every day. It is the computer not reading the temp. When it does that just tap the gas pedal.

Clutch problem?


Clarify please. When in gear & you take foot off the pedal it revs?
Your explanation appears to say that when you push the clutch, to disengage clutch, engine revs, as it should, and when you remove your foot, from pedal & it engages, truck runs as it should. Are you serious, or just wasting our time?
