Mechanic is probably going to have to go into transmission. If he is unable to rectify the problem by shifting the transmission by hand, the problem is internal. Shifting fork may have broken.

1998 Honda Civic manual trans will not shift into gears. Car starts, push in clutch and it goes to the floor, release clutch and comes back up. Unable to put into gears. Brake fluid and clutch fluid seem...


Eric, how are you confirming whether or not the car goes into gear if you shift gears without the engine running? One way would be to put it in 1st and see if you can push the car. If you can't, it is in gear.

Another option is to roll the car slightly forward or backward (engine off) while trying to put the car in gear. Once it is in gear, then the car shouldn't move any further. However, if it goes into gear, DO NOT start the car without taking it back out of gear.

The clutch is much more likely to be the problem than the transmission.

If the clutch fluid ever ran dry, then the clutch hydraulics will need to be bled of air. Otherwise, the problem could be the clutch master cylinder, slave cylinder or throwout bearing. Since you didn't report the clutch slipping (e.g. engine revving without accelerating when in gear) it is likely not the clutch disks themselves.

Regardless of what gear it's in, my Zike Saber chain slips as I step on the pedals. How do I solve this?


the saber zike is a elliptical bicycle. All answers above think you have a motorcycle or they have no clue. Is the chain on the sprocket, It seems to be off the gear. Zike recomends switching 1 gear at a time. Do not go from 7th to first gear in one shift or chain will come off the gear .It happened to me .Chain id not easy to put back on as a bike, that you can turn upside down and have it support itself on the seat and handlebars. The saber you must hold the back wheel off the ground and try somehow to turn the peddle backwards. I am not sure how to make an elliptical chain go backwards like a bike does without resistance.

My 1996 GMC half ton 2wd revs up to about 2000 rpm on start up without touching the accelerator. After a few seconds, it goes back to normal. Also, when you put it into drive or reverse, it accelerates...


If the throttle cable is not attached properly to the throttle body or you have a bad motor mount, the throttle cable may be pulling the throttle open as you shift into gear. Open the hood, find the throttle cable on the throttle body. Inspect how it is connected and also how the cable is fastened in the engine comoartnent. Next, watch what happens as someone else starts the truck and puts it into gear. If the engine shifts significantly, check for broken motor mounts. If the throttle cable is misbehaving, correct the installation.

New trans now it goes fast but cannot pul backwards


Probably. Always try to use manufacturer belts as they are designed and sized for the application. Length is not all that matters.

Mower will run will not go foreward or backward


With transmission in neutral...start the engine and move the speed lever to highest speed and move it back to brake position, then shift the transmission into gear and move speed lever, this will fix the problem.
