'95 del sol can't get into 5th gear


Most likely the synchronizer is bad. Even gears with chipped teeth aren't really bad. Make a little noise maybe, but still work.

96 nissan sentra 5th gear grind


Mor than likely damaged one of the planetary gear sets. Grinding in a trnasmission or rear end is a sign of loss of contact between meshing gears. Automatic transmissions engage two sets of gears internal to the trans to create a forward drive gear, changing between the gear sets creates different ratios anwhich in turn aloows for higher speeds. If the trans only grinds when in fifth range there is mopre than likely internal damage to the gears which 5th needs to operate. I would start by pulling the dip stick for the ****** and check for black or shiney material on the stick. I would then take a sample of oil from the trans by draining some from the drain plug if it has one, or possible drop the pan and check for foriegn matter in the fluid. Peices of metal shaving point to gear damage, and black material pont towards clutch wear/ damage. A worn or damaged clutch will cuase that specific gear not to engage and cause a grinding noise. Either way the concern is internal

I just replaced the clutch on my 5 spd manual trans it now makes noise in the first three gears and goes away in 4th & 5th the trans shifts fine it also seems to be losing fluid but we can't find out...


Common sense here

The clutch is not the issue,if the R&R was done correctly

You have a trans or transaxle problem (internal)

You also have a possible leak

Having owned a trans repair shop in the past,
I suggest you remove the trans,strip it clean,all the
way.

Then diagnose the shifting isssue in 1 thru 3 and the
area of the leak, as you reassemble it, verses all the worry and quessing
of what if's

My 95 Camry cant go into 5th gear. I was told that it was the clutch because it was making a grinding noise. I got the clutch fixed but even after that its not taking 5th gear and its still making the...


If the clutch is bad it would make the same noise in every gear, because the clutch does always the same engage and disengage the trans and its different gears. So if there is a noise in a specific gear the problem is the trans-axle ( if the noise is coming from the trans axle.)

My 1999 1.8 petrol vectra is making a whirring noise in the engine when its steady in 5th it stops


very difficult to advise without heariing the noise ,opel vectra (vauxhall) nice motors these ,if noise stops in 5th then it could be the gearbox like the layshaft needle bearings caused by low or no oil in the gearbox ,remember 5th gear doesnt use the layshaft its on the end of the mainshaft behind the cover next to the wheel arch

Gets stuck between 4th and 5th


The shift rail fork ends are likely worn. There are fork contact/wear pads that ride in the gear shift sliding collars, and over time, or from low gearbox oil levels/insufficient lubrication, these pads wear, allowing "slop" and preventing the gears from engaging fully. I'd check the brngs, synchro rings and the dog clutch teeth, too. If you see metal/brass or aluminum shavings in the case drain plug, oil or on the bottom of the gearcase...that isn't a good sign. This sounds like a trans issue, not a clutch issue.
