Sounds like a selector problem possibly due to one too many wheelies, unfortunately this involves major heart surgery to replace the worn cog (usually 1st & 3rd) however it is a cartridge gearbox so although it's a nasty job it's not quite an engine rebuild.

Hope this helps

New clutch installed but on pull off it jumps out of 1st gear,Why


Most likely your transmission needs a synchronizer replaced for 1st gear. The synchronizer allows the trans to be put in gear without grinding but also helps hold it in the gear it is shifted into.

It because of the forks inside the transmission are worn out or they have lost their plastic pieces on the fork ends.(some transmissions are built this way, plastic). you have to pull the transmission to fix it.

My 2003 audi a4 convertable is jumping out of 1st gear sometimes can you sugest what might be causing this


Whenever a stick shift is jumping out of gear you think transmission.
If the first gear has some teeth that are chewed up then it will cause this to happen.

First check your motor and transmission mounts to make sure excess movement isn't pulling your car out of gear

Second check all the shift linkage bushings to see that the car is in fact pushing fully into gear

Good luck!!

300Zx will not shift out of 5th gear


Dear javatrader: There are very few solutions to this problem. The fact that you had mentioned 5th & Reverse, tells me that you problem is has two possibilities. Both relate to the same component.
The shift fork for Fifth gear and reverse are the same as well as the hub which the fork fits over.
When you Move the stick shift, it moves one of 3 rails in the transmission of which one is 5th and reverse. The hub is what locks the transmission in gear. The gears are what are referred to as synchromesh. This means that when you shift from gear to gear, it makes it possible to easily make the transition without the gears grinding while the car is in motion. The synchros are in fact, kind of a "BRAKE" for the gears so that when you go to shift into that gear, the synchronizing ring, slows the gear down enough to match the speed of the counter gear allowing it to engage with it, without grinding. As the hub slides into gear, there are spring loaded "KEYS" which are small pieces of steel about 1/2 inch long, 1/4 inch thick and 1/4 inch wide with a little hump in them to push up into a small cavity machined into the hub when it slides over it, thus locking the gear into place until you pull the stick to move it out of place. If a key pops out, it could cause the gear to stick, not allowing you to pull the hub back because the key has popped out at an angle which prohibits the hub from sliding over it.
Another possible senario: The fork is secured to the shift rail with a part called a "Roll pin". If this part shears, the car will be stick in what ever gear it was in at the time the pin sheared. If the pin shears, the stick will still move out of 5th gear position but the transmission won't.
This problem, unfortunately is not one a layman can fix. This is best left to a professional.
Good luck......If you are pleased with my answer, please write in, that you are satisfied with my answer. I am new in this "FIXYA" group and need more people responding to work my way up the ranks.
