SOURCE: Rough shifting automatic transmission on Honda Accord from 1st to 2nd gear

it has a problem with the second gear drum it cracks and does not fully engauge the n shifts to 3rd ..many honda owners also learn the 8 bucks a quart is the only fluid to pour in a honda..but remember 3 qaurts per drain and fill the tranny holds 7q ....it will take a case to do a drain flush...a high pressure flush will ruin a automatic tranny with alot of miles or metal deposits floating around inside..DRAIN AND FILL 3 QUARTS AT A TIME NO GASKET NEEDED ITS BUILT AND DESIGNED LIKE A MANUAL TRANNY

SOURCE: the engine rpms rev when shifting

Your trans is slipping, u are going to need to have it checked out at a trans shop, they will test drive it in most cases for free and report what they think is wrong or recommend more diagnostic work if they are unsure..

Can only select 1st neutral an 2nd gear


Hi Meihana and the usual suspects are:
1. Clutch dragging slightly.
2. Primary chaincase overfilled with lubricant.
3. Corners wore off shifter clutch dogs.
4. Shifter return spring bent or broken.
5. Bent shifter rod.
6. Shift lever is loose on the shifter shaft.
7. Shifter forks sprung.
8. Shifter pawl needs adjusting.
9. Heel/toe shifter coming in contact with the floorboard.
10. Transmission oil too heavy.
For more information about your issue, please visit the websites below. Good luck and have a nice day.

2008 toyota Camry manual hard shifting from 1st to 2nd gear


With the engine off see if the shift between 1st to 2nd feel,s free if not it could be the cable check the clutch is disengageing all the way it should go into reverse without crunching,other then that it could be a synchro ring worn check that the gearbox has the right oil in it.

When it's in gear, does the engine seem to bog or creep forward? 1rst is the "hardest" gear for your tranny to accommodate, your clutch may need adjustment. With a little thought a person can visualize how the handle and cable "pull" in the clutch, and add a little more action to it. I always recommend buying a service manual from say amazon for example. It's the best $$ you'll ever spend keeping your ride up to par.
Eliminating inadequate clutch release I'd suspect a bent shifting fork or binding in the tranny which always means the engine will have to come out and crack the case. Best of luck to you

1998 Saturn SC1 manuel stick is hard to shift into 1st & 2nd gear


Try to double clutch the clutch pedal. How to double clutch; push the clutch in moving the stick to neutral, then release the clutch and then push it back in and shift into first or second gear. If it works then it is not the shift linkage and could be a clutch adjustment. First how far do you have to release the clutch pedal until the clutch plate starts to engage? If only an inch or so the clutch pedal needs to be adjusted, which is an easy fix (this is more common). The other possible problems could be the clutch plate, throwout bearing of syncros could be bad. If it is one of the previous problems double clutching should buy you some time.

2007 chevy cobalt ss need help


Sounds like you are not getting the full throw of the slave cylinder. If you do not disengage the clutch completely it will shift hard, and sometimes you have to double clutch like you would an old truck. Have whoever put in your clutch bleed the clutch system again.

Hope this helps.
