    I would check your pressure plate. It might noe be letting your tranny engage correctly

Noise when shifting gears


transmission synchronizers most common cause of transmisson noise in certain gears, and not others, might want to check the gear oil level. Transmission rebuild required. To read about them and what they actually do, then here is a good read:
When you shift gears in your standard shift car, you move a rod that moves a fork that engages the gear. Depending which gear you're shifting to, a different fork does the job. The fork moves the collar to the desired gear, and dog teeth on the collar mesh up with holes on the gear in order to engage it. You engage reverse gear through a separate, small idler gear. The reverse gear always turns in the opposite direction of the other (forward) gears.
In years past, double-clutching was common in order to disengage a gear, allow the collar and next gear to reach the same speed, and then to engage the new gear. To double-clutch shift, you pushed the clutch pedal to free the engine from the transmission. Then the collar moved into neutral. You released the clutch and revved the engine to get it to the right rpm value for the next gear so the collar and the next gear spun at the same rate to allow the dog teeth to engage the gear. When the engine hit the right speed, you depressed the clutch again in order to lock the collar into place on the next gear.
Modern cars use synchronizers in order to avoid the need for double-clutching. A synchronizer, or "synchro," lets the collar and gear synchronize their speeds while they're already in contact but before the dog teeth engage. Each manufacturer's synchro is slightly different than the others, but the basic idea is the same. For instance, a cone on one gear will fit into a cone-shaped depression on the collar. The gear and collar synchronize their speeds thanks to the friction between the cone and collar. Then the outer part of the collar moves out of the way so that the gear can be engaged by the dog teeth.

I would be checking the throwout bearing. But, if the clutch isn't slipping, maybe leave it for now?

If you put it in 5th gear, let out the clutch with handbrake applied and it stalls--the clutch isn't slipping for sure.

I can put my 1994 toyota tercel in gear without pushing in the clutch, what could the problems be?


Do you mean with the engine off? If so, that is normal. The clutch just allows you to disconnect from engine when it running. With the clutch released and engine running the gears are spinning all the time. When in neutral, the chain of gears to the final drive is incomplete. When you engage a gear you are completing a chain of gear connections to the wheels. If engine is running, you will grind gears untill you press clutch, making a temporary break in the chain, allowing the gears to stop spinning and you to engage one.

You can infact use 1st gear as a kind of parking brake as it holds the car from rolling (in most cases) , with engine OFF, - BUT this is not advised as the only parking brake.

Knocking when engine gets hot and car stopped


The fan clutch can make a knocking noise when it tries to engage. At idle it will have a rhythm to it when it tries to engage. You will have an over heating condition and the air conditioning may not work properly.

The fix is to replace the fan clutch and reprogram the engine control module.

Some gears can not get engaged. specifically my reverse, gear two and five simply can't be engaged. how can i solve this problem?


If you can engage 1st gear, it rules out any clutch problems. If gear case ran low on oil, for a prolonged time, it could cause this. If this is the case, flush transmission oil, and add a manual gearbox additive, in order to prolong life and diminish damage already done.
Other likely possibilty is that a synchronizer ring went bad for second gear, since that synchro is shared for all the gears that you mention.

The worn shift fork is the problem. Normally a shift fork will never show any wear. When a fork gets bent is when wear begins to show. If a good shift fork is set side by side with a bent fork it is very hard to see any difference. The bend is so slight that it is usually impossible to discern. Put in a new fork and the shifting problem is history.

Now would be a good time to install new crank bearings and new crank seals as well.

Feels like gears are slipping with any kind of power


If you are hearing a bad grinding noise then Stop riding the bike NOW. If you continue to ride, or run the engine, you will only do more internal damage and make the repair cost higher. Chances are you have a bent shift fork and the noise is the engaging dogs on the slider gear grinding the side of a fixed gear because the bent fork is preventing full engagement.

The entire engine comes out of the frame and gets completely torn down. The top end comes off, the case covers come off, the clutch, shift shaft, kick starter, flywheel and electrics all come off. Then the case is split to gain access to the gears and shift drum. The gears and shift drum now get removed and now the fork can be replaced. If a gear needs to be replaced because of a broken teeth, replace also any gear the teeth mesh with. A few special tools are needed. Sorry for having to give you the bad news.

A “very helpful” rating for this answer? Thanks!
