Hi Anonymous, that first gear clunk is a " HOLY SOUND" it dwells in the left hand of the Harley God second only to the thunderous roar of the exhaust and the BA DUMP BA DUMP BA DUMP idle, which dwells in his right hand. The Harley Davidson Motor Company purposely leaves that transmission flaw in it's gear. It's what makes a Harley a Harley. It does no harm. Let us pray.

My yamaha R6-2008 is having a take off problem. please help?


Klacking noise? Any sort of mechanical metal to metal noise is no good. If the engine pulls fine once your in higher gears with no noise I would think that it is transmission/gear issues and not engine(piston/rod) issues. If the bike gets abused or stunted chances are the first couple of gears are bad.

03 Kia Rio will not engage into drive when cold (Automatic)


This is a situation of low pressure,as you warm up the vehicle the transmission fluid is warmer which allow the torque convertor to produce pressure to collapse the clutch pack and transfer power for a shift gear,your solution is a torque convertor and a front pump

Hard shifting into reverse with a 2002 buick century


The motor will shift around a bit when shifting gears on the motor. My first suspicion is that the transmission could use a flush and new fluid in it. This would be the most economical first step.
If the problem does not improve after a transmission flush, I would suggest having a reputable mechanic take a peak at the issue.

2000 pontiac sunfire 2.4L twin cam. When put in drive I hear a loud bang and when driving it has a quieter bang when it shifts gears.


Check your motor mounts, it sound like your motor is rocking back and forth. You can confirm this by watching the engine while someone shifts it in and out of gear for you.

My 1510 sounds like a machine gun before it prints


With consumer-level HP printers, when this starts happening, youre pretty much out of luck. It basically means that the gears that control the position of the inkjet cartridge/print head are being stripped because the sensor that controls their position and tells them when to stop is malfunctioning.

The only real solution I can think of is to replace your printer. I myself have had several printers die in just this way.

2000 Nissan Maxima sounds like its not shifting into 3rd gear


What do you mean by loud... Loud where??? If noise is from engine, make sure that the mechanical fan clutch is not "locked" (it's supposed to freewheel when cold... if it does not, it will "roar" when driving.

Shifting problem with Toyota Paseo


The throttle position switch has some effect on shifting but should effect both hot and cold. It is normal for Toyota vehicles to lock out the overdrive upshift (3rd to 4th gears) until coolant temperature reaches approx 180 degrees f.

Loud Downshift


My 2004 Sporty shift pedal is "notchy" especially when cold (allow 20-30 sec. of idle after starting) to allow time for oil to wet the shift forks and gear assemblies before shifting into first driving off. Also when down shifting, I usually do NOT use engine/trans gear braking on the street to save wear and tear on the clutch and running gear...brake pads are a lot easier (and cheaper) to replace over the long haul
