Try loosening the belt tension to the transmission a little bit. Some of these are just stiff and you have to slip the clutch a little to rock them into gear.

OK, so I had the same problem. Would not go into gear forward or in reverse. I took it apart and nothing seemed out of place or broken. I scratched my head for an hour... asked my wife if she had done anything to the machine while I was gone and she replied I only had a tire fixed!!! Bing bulb went off.... She had removed the tire from the shaft and had lost the SQUARE KEY for the drive shaft, one 20 cent square key for the drive shaft and it worked!! TA DAHHH!!
Simple fixes for simple problems.

I have a Evinrude Ficht 135 that Runs Ok but won't go in to gear, forward or reverse. Any ideas?


Disconnect the shift cable and see if the problem is with the shift box or the lower unit. If the lower, remove the bottom plug and look for water or metal where there should be clean oil.

If the shift box, take to the marina- they were a bear. Even just for cables.

1999 FORD EXPERDITION TRANSMISSION WON'T MOVE FORWARD BUT MY REVERSE WORKS FINE WHAT I NEED TO DO


You can try shifting into manual 1 to get moving then once you get going shift the lever up into Drive. This should work, then drive it to a shop to have your ****** looked at.

My 1998 Honda civic ex won't move but the motor


Have you just replaced the clutch? Taken out the transaxle, and put it back in? Are you sure transmission was in good condition before this? If so, review your procedure carefully to be sure you got it all back right.
Watch the slave cylinder while someone depresses clutch. You should see the little plunger move slightly out and move the clutch lever back. The lever moves the release bearing inside bell housing into contact with the pressure plate. If slave cylinder doesn't move at all, try bleeding again. The plunger has to move when clutch is engaged.
I'm not sure what you mean by "will shift but won't go into gear". You mean it's actually going into a gear position and car won't move? Or it won't go into any gear, period. As if you had no clutch?

My 1993 Honda accord EX , the transmission quit. auto, no gears forward or reverse.


Check the fluid level. Automatic transmissions won't go into gear without enough fluid. If it's low, you've probably got a leak somewhere that you need to find.

I have Troy-Bilt storm 7524 snow blower which normally works fine, however, it has started to have problems shifting back into forward gear after being reversed. I'll put the snow-blower into reverse gear...


Try lubing the linkage where it shifts from forward and to reverse the linkage is most likely freezing up or has snow or ice build up causing it not to shift, My thought is your shoving it hard enough that it finally engages when you get the snow or ice to break off.

NO REVERSE FORWARD GEARS WORK. IS THERE A BAND AJUSTMENT FOR REVERSE ?IF I PUSH IT OFF IT WORKS BUT SLIPS


I have a 2000 Honda Accord EX, it shifts normal on forward with no problem. Also when the car is cold the reverse gear works just fine, but when the car runs for about few minutes the reverse gear will not work. It will seem as if it wants to go but then if feels like its neutral.
