Lots of cars have a lockout that keeps you from downshifting into first at any speed over 10-15 mph - it's to keep you from inadvertently over-revving the engine and blowing it. Chances are you have trouble with it by design. If you slow to a crawl, and it goes right in, that's the case.

My gear is stiff and experiencing a difficulty when engaging second gear. other gears seems to be fine but the shifting is not smooth.


I suspect that it will be in the shift mechanism
If it is a cable shift then replace the cable
If it levers or other linkages check and adjust or lubricate as required
I doubt it is in the clutch as you haven't mentioned difficulty in selecting first gear only shifting from 1 to 2nd.

My 1992 pajero could hardly shift to the 4th gear and thus could not reach to turbo level.


If its having difficulty moving through the gears it could be a transmission issue or the turbo could be bad which would also cause a bogging down situation.

Difficulty starting after stopping for a short while


Without more input I'll give you two scenarios 1 the starter is showing signs of weakness and hen it gets hot it does not have the strength to spin the motor as it should. 2. The ignition timing needs adjusted, it may be advanced a bit and need retarding, especially with the low grades of fuel we are getting these days , you might try a higher grade of fuel or possibly an octane booster which you add when re-fueling.
Hope this is useful. Let me know please. gl...dc

Difficulty shifting, especially into 2nd gear


sounds like you have air in your hydrolic portion of your clutch system, you need to see if your slave cylnder or your clutch master cylnder is leaking fluid putting air in your system. If the case is that you have just a hard to get in gear such as only 2nd then i would have suspected your secronizer ring being bad. or if all gears seem to be hard cold then you would either have a leaking hydrolic cylnder or the wrong fluid in trans.
