Clutch pushrod and final driveshaft) without removing the gearbox/engine from the the frame? Just removing the swingarm and driveshaft to gain access. This is on a Sport 1100. Mine started leaking oil today and upon closer inspection all the seals look a bit suspect to me. The main offender being the drive shaft seal. Trying to chenge the rear seal with the box in-situ is fraught with problems. Apart from the accessibility issue it is difficult to get an sort of sel hook in to pry out the seal without damaging the face of the speedo drive worm that the seal runs on. Alo in many, many cases the leak isn't actually from the seal, what will cause it is the failure of the o-ring on the shaft beneath the hardened washer forward of the speedo worm. This is supposed to seal and prevent oil getting up the shaft between it and the worm and leaking out the back. In many many cases this will be the culprit rather than the seal itself and if only the seal is replaced the leak will continue. My advice would be to simply bite the bullet, pull the gearbox and go through it front to back re-sealing and oo-ringing as you go. You can also shim it up properly and check the clutch while its out. Yes it is a 'Big' ish job but its not one you're likely to need to do very often and at least you'll know it has been done right. ,,,

Hyundai 2013 I30 gearbox 'SKLITCH' between 5th and 6th gear

It sounds like BS to me but what do I know. I'm only in this business for 40 years. What they did was put heavy oil in the gear box to try to mask the sound. That's why it is difficult to shift (stiff).

Alway ask for the old parts when a replacement is not visible after repairs!

Automatic Transmition Shifting Problem when Engine is cold

The auto was notorious for clutch pack failure. Tolerances were tight in the inner workings and this caused inadequate oil flow and poor cooling. Sooner or later the auto transmissions fail. You could have the transmission rebuilt but that will cost a bit to do it so it wont break again. I might recomend going back to honda atf and changing the fluid again. If that does not work try an additive oil for the transmission. I had some sucess with the recomend product.

last resort, have it swapped to a manual transmission. This is a cheap alternative as f series transmissions from the accord can bolt up to the h22 and can be found cheap at the expense of higher gear ratios.

My 2001 Cherokee automatic takes very long to change gears, sometimes 30 - 50 km before it goes into top gear. Checked ATF level and sensor wires on outside of gearbox. Seems as only when driven hot does...

It sounds like you may have a sticking shift solenoid. Often if there are any gummy deposits causing it to stick, as the temp goes up the deposit will soften and allow it to work. I would try adding Lucas trans conditioner to the fluid. It will help dissolve any deposits and is not harmful to the other internal parts. (takes a few days to work...took some time to get that way). Only other possibility is that you have a slight seal leak on a shaft seal (internal) in which case as the shaft warms up and expands the pressure loss diminishes. Lucas will sometimes help there depending on if its a rubber or nylon seal.
If you see no improvement in about a week, have the trans diagnosed by a reliable transmission shop.
I am assuming you have done regular trans service??

How to fix oil leak from top of a manual gearbox housing

sorry but its going to be a big job. you need to remove the gearbox to open up and get to the seals. you could try and use an additive in the gear box, its like oil seal for engine you can get it for engines gear boxes and difs and power steering. it sometimes goes by seek and seal, in older vehicles its quite good. you will need to replace the oil it will need to be done twice to clean it all out so it can get a good seal.. i.e change oil run engine get the gearbox to move for 20 min then change the oil as its warm not hot so let it cool down for 10-20 min then drain. put the seek and seal in and top up with oil and run as normal, check after a few days to see if its worked. usual does.

95 honda civic automatic will not shift into second

Hi there OK, I assume that the autobox is stuck in first and you have two possible problems. Firstly, the shift value in the shift value block is stuck thus continually selecting first gear, or the speed sensor within the auto box is seized. Both these problems is as a result of not having the gearbox oil changed as per the recommended service intervals. Firstly, identify the colour of oil on the auto tarns dip-stick - if it's black, you need to change the oil in the autobox. After you have done this, drive the car in first for a few miles to circulate the new oil and after the vehicle is at normal operating temperture, go as fast as you can in first gear. What this is doing is maximising the load on the speed sensor in the gearbox and by increasing the speed it might just unseaze and change into the other gears. The other thing to do is a stall test, but I suggest that you have a Honda Dealer do this. Best regards, Scottech
