    I had the same trouble but mine was 2nd gear. Now it is locked in 5th gear but appears to be in nuteral. I was told it may be the slave cylinder or linkage and perhaps the forks. Any ideas?

My 99 z24 cavalier standerd shift it will not shift into 3rd gear


The gear may be stripped, can't catch other gear,have you been grinding this gear,will have to go into transmission and replace third gear, will have to wind second gear out and shift to 4th gear.May be better and cheaper to get a remanufactured transmission cause all parts are new versus just 3rd gear being replaced.

Hi:

Your transmission has 3 shift rails...
1st - 2nd
3rd -4th
5th- Reverse

If your 3rd gear doesn't work , you have an internal transmission problem, such as a syncronizer, or similar fail... There is not much you can fix, without removeing the transmission.

I have a 1997 toyota rav4 manual 4X4 , Everytime I shift up into 4th gear it does a slight grind but it doesn't do it down shifting.


Sounds like you have a scrinco stuck or worn out and the way you will get away with out grinding till you can get it done is to drive it like the old cars and trucks and that is to double de clutch between 3rd and 4th
all you do is to clutch in pull into nutural clutch out and in again fast and in to 4th gear (simple).
