Yamaha TDM 850 engine dies when clutch lever is released


Hi, Marcus the ignition circuit cut-off system comprising of the side stand switch, clutch switch and neutral switch has the following functions:
a. It prevents starting when the transmission is in gear and the side stand is up, but the clutch lever is not pulled.
b. It prevents starting when the transmission is in gear and the clutch lever is pulled, but the side stand is still down.
c. It cuts the running engine when the transmission is in gear and the side stand is moved down.
Periodically check the operation of the ignition circuit cut-off system according to the following tests.
With the engine turned off:
1. Move the side stand down.
2. Make sure that the engine stop switch is set to "RUN"
3. Turn the key to "ON".
4. Shift the transmission into the neutral position.
5. Push the start switch if the engine does not start the neutral switch may be faulty.
With the engine still running:
6. Move the side stand up.
7. Keep the clutch lever pulled.
8. Shift the transmission into gear.
9. Move the side stand down if the engine does not stall you may have a faulty side stand switch.
After the engine has stalled:
10. Move the side stand up.
11. Keep the clutch lever pulled.
12. Push the start switch if the engine does not start you may have a faulty clutch switch.

1989 Toyota Camry automatic transmission starting off on high gear.Stalls on drive like pulling heavy loads.


It is quite likely to be a failed shift solenoid, causing inability to find low gears. There should be a trouble code stored, causing the O/D lamp to blink.

2000 Saturn Vue, manual transmission 5 spd, trouble shifting, loud knock (more like a BANG), when shifting into 1st gear... ..constant rattle while driving.....????


Try shifting into first without pressing the gas. If it is a slow decline before engine dies this is normal. If its a dramatic engine death, your clutch is to blame, if it still makes noise then its the gearbox. If you have a Mr. Clutch Autocentre near you they will test your gearbox for free as will many reputable transmission shops.

2001 Jetta won't shift into high gear/


In 2001 the "Check Engine" light might give information about what's going on with the transmission. You may want to have it checked by a shop before the transmission decides to die. It might be a simple fix.

Transmission shifting funny.


sounds like either your transmission is having problems with the valves...might want to have that looked at before your transmission dies completely......also have them check vacuum lines as i believe that car uses vacuum pressure to shift.
