Sounds more like a high idle problem to me.

Your tranny should have some "floating" when you shift to any gear, but if you are idled up too high then that "floating" disappears and it jumps.

I would check you idle before you think about tranny problems.

Mazda bravo b2600 gearbox growles and grumbles. cant select 2nd or 4th gear. 1st, 3rd,5th & reverse ok.


I am sorry to tell that the gearbox need to have some major repair. It is also not advisable to continue driving as the gearbox can breakdown completely leaving you stranded. At least one the cluster drive gears in the gearbox is damaged (gear tooth stripped off) that will result in that only some of the gears being able to be selected. The broken off tooth are still in the gearbox and due to the oil movement in the gearbox it can be "washed up " in between to engaged gears destroying those as well. This will happen up to the point where there are no gear selection at all.

Nissan cabstar jumps out of 4th gear down hill


Hi Brian, I'm assuming that the vehicle is manual transmission? If so the problem could be with a damaged mounting or the gearbox synchromesh cone, in which case major gearbox work is required. Regards John

Holden suburban column auto...car won't go into reverse and takes a while to change to 2nd gear...is it major


It might be.
You should first change the gearbox oil and replace the gearbox oil filter, then retry.
If you are still having an issue, then check the vehicle's speed sensor and TCM.

1st and 5th gear jumps out of it's position. Revers gear do's not engage gear from time to time


if this is a manual gearbox then its the indent springs in the selector rod movement inside the gearbox and this will involve removing the gearbox if i have correctly located the fault ,but without the make and model of vehicle i cannot say for certain as it could be the gearchange mechanism movement inside the cars cab and if tis cable then a outer sheaf on a cable could be loose and come out of its crimped holder

In 2008 first 4th gear and later 2nd and 4th gears kept jumping out. I was told that all the bearings and other components inside the gearbox were worn out so Ihad them overhaul the gearbox. A few months...


a gear box place should know more than me but this can also be caused bye a little ball bearing and spring .... these 2 things push on the selecter shafts and fit in to a groove that holds the shaft in the right spot .. that is what u feel when u change gear and it stays in position ....... the spring - springs can looz tention .. brake or the ball can wear or the groov it sits in to can do the same making it not hold in position ... 2nd and 4th are prob on the same shaft and this problem useully happens under load or taking off quick ........ i think they call them retainer springs and ball

It acts as though it is not going into gear when you take off and then it jumps into gear.


possible syncromeshing is worn out on the gear box. the syncromesh is a small clutch like part of your gearbox if this has stopped then the gear selection will be jumpy they call this crunch gear box.

either way you will most likely needs a new gearbox.

the other issue might be the cluthch is snatching if the vehicle is automatic then it will be the gearbox.

i hope this was useful

Transmission is stuck in reverse but the shifter is in neutral and will not go in gear


Check for wear in the gear lever selector/gate mechanism.
It may have allowed the lever to select reverse, the 'jump' the lockout gate back to neutral position for selection of forward gears.
You may be able to de-select reverse if you access the lever directly at the gearbox case.

1999 a4 2.4 auto uk model gearbox fault


After a jump start because of no electrical power, the car will run rough for several days (expected) while it adjusts to your driving habits. I'm not sure about the gears, but I'd try to drive with it like that for a few days and see if it returns to normal.

Land rover discovery 1994 gear selection


Hi there!

I'm a Land Rover owner myself - old school Series models.

This sounds like major gearbox trouble.

As the selector shafts are different for gears #2 and #4, I may be inclined to think there is an external problem around the base of the gearlever.

Probably cheaper to have a look here first.

If you've been offroading, it's possible you've managed to get a stone in there.

With the covers off the transmission, if there is no fault externally that you can see, then the gearbox may have to be stripped to find the obstruction.

You can always join one of the Landrover forums to assist on this and other matters.

Hope this helps you. If it does, please rate as Fixya! Thanks.
