What holds the gear links in place on the transmission. Mine come off and I was able to put it back and get home but it looks like something should be holding it on so it won't jump

SOURCE: no third gear!!!

Check the gear linkage adjustment is correct.
Ensure 3rd gear throw is fully engaging when selected.
You can check this without the motor running,- depress clutch and carefully go through the gear selections - ensure when selecting 3rd you can feel selection detent (passing over the syncohub detent pawl).
If the problem persists, and no fault can be found with selection adjustment, you probably have worn gearbox bearings, or broken synco energiser spring internal to the gearbox.

SOURCE: transmission trouble. fluid looks fine. absolute

It sounds like you might have blown an axle. Especially if there has never been any transmission problems before. You said the fluid looks fine, and by that I take it to mean the fluid is clean and red, and its full. A blown axle will make the click noise, as the splines on the end of the axle are trying to mesh with the splines inside the transmission. The problem could be in the trans., but I'd pull the axles out first and check them, as axles are a lot cheaper and easier to change than a transmission.

SOURCE: 1984 harley 4 speed transmission keeps jumping out

sounds like it's overhaul time for your four speed. It may be something to do with the shifting mechanism but since you didn't mention anything about problems in the other gears, it would be my guess that the spacer shims on the countershaft have worn and you have too much endplay in the countershaft. Just a guess of course. You really can't tell about those until you go into them.

good Luck

SOURCE: Manual transmission jumps out of 5th gear.

Jumoing out of 5th gear is a problem that this company has known about for years. Also chain tensiors on the 2.2 coming loose both of these Items shaould have been recalls yet Gm and Isuzu just turned there backs and walked away. Their is also a problem with the anti lock brake systems on these trucks you are better off stopping like the flintstones if you have to come to a quick stop. Anti stop is the right name because u anti stopping u best try to hit the ditch lol. The exgust manifoild is a another story I dont know who the fool is that came up with the ideal of putting a spring flange gasget between the maifoild and the exgust pipe but this is a lot of not only noise but work to replace every year if it makes it that long without blowing it out. The chain tensinor will cost a good bit to replace u see when it comes loose it breaks the timing chain which in turns bends valves and then there is the cost of the head having to be redone lol. The bottom half og the motor is great pulling power is great clutch well you will have tyo change it after 65000 miles that along with the slave cycinder lol gas 350 to a tank 390 on the highway which is great for a 18.l5 gallon tank . %th yes it isnt just something a 20.00 is going to fix lol and it wasnt your fault Gm and the other maker did shity work now all these Hombras owners are paying for there mistakes. It will be fine it will last a life time just keep on holding it w3hen u slow down hell im doing it in aqll my trucks now it kind of becomes a habit after a while but better then giving gm anymore of my money 1, exgust flange gasket 2. timnig chain tensioner 3 tranmission 5th gear slipping out. 4 Braking hazard to your health 5th well i will take the 5th i think I have said enough.

Manual transmission stuck first gear

I too say its a stuck shift linkage.
Open the link below to see the image.
The bushings (A, D and E) can wear out with time and use. I have seen the joint (at A) that attaches at the transmission get seized too. These parts can be removed from the car with the transmission in place.

1st 3rd and 5th gears are spongy to shift into

Start with the firs post and have those cables and linkage assembly looked at if those are good then what you have is a loose bolt on the transmission that bolt is responsible to keep the gear in place when loose the transmission will do what you described as well nothing more nothing less.

2000 Isuzu lost accelerating power going about 55 car was still running just wouldn't go coasted to side of road and had to be towed. it wouldn't go into any gears after that. when I try to start sounds...

After reading your question and the suggested solutions. Many believe it is an electrical problem, but your Trooper didn't come as a diesel and you said the engine was running and you said it wouldn't go into any gear. You heard something turning until you turned it off.
If you have a manual transmission:
If the clutch wouldn't allow you to shift into any gear but neutral then there are teeth broken in the transmission that won't allow the synchros to line the gears with the spinning input shaft from the clutch disc.
Or it could be that the clutch itself is damaged.
If you can put it into any gear and still nothing, look under the vehicle and look to see if the entire drive shaft is turning. If it is, put it into neutral, place the transfer case into 4 wheel drive and place the transmission into 1st gear. If it begins to move forward, STOP!!! Your rear axle pinion or ring gear is severely damaged. If it doesn't move, then the transfer case is also broken.
If the drive shaft is not spinning, again, put it into 4 wheel drive again and see if it moves. If it doesn't, it is the transfer case, if it does, check to see if any of the U-Joints are broken.

For an automatic transmission:
If you can't take it out of park it's the transmission.
If you can put it into reverse, Drive, or any lower gear it could be the torque converter or the transmission. If you hear a clunk when it is in gear but nothing happens, put your foot on the brake and have someone else look under the vehicle to see if the drive shaft is spinning. Yes means the rear ring and pinion is destroyed. If it isn't, then place the vehicle into neutral and push the 4WD/4WD Auto button and place it back into drive. If it moves forward check for broken u-joints, if it doesn't, then it's the transfer case.

If any of the above have diagnosed the problem and you are unfamiliar with repairing drivetrains, then have it towed on a flatbed tow truck to a company that specializes in transmissions and drivetrains. Get a quote to repair it. If repairing it is worth more than the actual value of the vehicle itself then you now have a parts vehicle.
Always check your options to repair the damage, sometimes replacing the entire component (transmission, transfer case, or axle) then you can replace it with a used one that works from the junk yard and replace it. Sometimes you can get a parts car for less than buying a junk yard component, make sure that the part car doesn't have the same problem. If it is more economical to repair, then you just got lucky.

My Escape 2001 V-6 Transmission Problem. i put into reverse nothing happens when i put it into drive nothing happens was working fine 5 days ago. Please any idea or tip how to fixed? or is like a sensor...

I got a new transmission and in a few months it did the same thing. On mine the transmission cable was not connected. If you know where the cable only takes a couple seconds to plug it back in. When my transmission went completely out it would not go no matter what gear it was in , but when it become disconnected it would not go into any gear. The gear shift would not move.
Hope this helps!

On an automatic transmission there is two places to put gear oil. Is this the same on a manual transmission. I have switched out a auto for manual and added gear oil in one place but still get a growl am...

Was it a new manual transmission? If it was used, you may have gotten one with some wear on the bearings. There is only one place to put transmission into the transmission. Are you using the correct grease for a manual transmission?

Rebuilt trans shifts 1st to neutral only

It sounds to me like you missed the "shifter knob" on the shift shaft when you installed the transmission back into the case. If your transmission was shifting correctly on work bench, it should at least shift from first to second gear.

You're going to have to pull the transmission back out of the engine case. With the transmission out of the case, look into the the transmission cavity and hold the shift lever so that the short shift arm is level parallel to the bottom of the engine case. Mark the outer end of the shaft so that you can verify that it is still level once you get the transmission back in the case.

Now, put the shift lever (lever you shift the transmission with) temporarily on the shift shaft and support it some way so as to hold it level. Install the transmission. Now, before finishing the installation job, check to see if the shaft is still "level". Install the four bolts that hold the "acess plate" of the transmission in and try to shift through all the gears by turning the mainshaft and having someone hold or turn the countershaft. Make sure the transmission works before you finish up the job.

If the transmission still doesn't shift. Take it back out and work with it in a vise until you figure out the problem. It'll probably be something to do with the shifting mechanism rather than the gears.

Good Luck

I have 3 of these and all of them have a problem after a while that they slip the clutch even when it is selected to the drill position, can the clutch be adjusted?

I just took mine apart and it appears that you have to replace the entire transmission. It is an easy job and the part is about $34 much cheaper than a new drill. Really, it is one third the price of a battery. Just take the 4 screws out that hold the metal case to the plastic clamshells, slide the front of the drill off, pull the transmission out of the rear of the drill put the plastic piece with the gear indicator on the new trans, if needed, slide the new trans into place, spin the motor if needed to get the output to line up with the planetary gears, slide the front of the drill back into place, rotate the chuck to align the shaft  with the transmission output, put the 4 screws back in, enjoy.

Might want to replace the brushes while you are in there as well. I am going to consider this the dewalt version of an oil change

Rebuilding 1995 honda civic transmission

Did you make sure that the tork converter was all the way forward first if not then you will need to take the transmission back out and make sure that the converter has either automatic trany fluid in it or 184/85 gear oil depending on whether or not you have automatic trasmission or manual fill it up until you can put your finger in it and then rotate converter clock wise and it should slip into place before putting trasmission back into car and if after doing that and you still are having trouble take it to a transmission shop to have them do it for you.

Won't make ice

I've tried a home made fix to this problem which is working so far. It's a bit of work, so proceed with caution. The problem at least with mine was the back of the gear/motor assembly box. There is a back side of a gear that projects out of the gear box and into a slot in the ice tray. It seems to be made of cheap plastic that broke from all the twisting of the tray. Mine left a couple of prongs still on the gear from the break, which I was able to JB Weld and shape back into a tight fit with the ice tray slot.

To start, push the black button that projects down, holding the gear box in place while at the same time pulling the gear box towards you. The ice tray will fall at this point.

Now the gear box is just hanging by the power cables. The only way that I found to get the box out was to take out the four screws in the corners of the gear box, (careful, there are loose gears in there that can come out) and pull the motor, and circuit board out by their cables. If you did this without any gears falling out, put the clear plastic cover back on so that they stay in place.

If the gears fell out, like mine did, it's not to difficult to figure out how they go back in.

Now if you have enough of the gear protruding out the back to add the JB Weld to, than do that and shape it to fit the slot of the ice tray. I had to let it dry, then sand it to the right fit. Hope this holds for a while. I couldn't order just the gear, and the motor/gear box is $70.

Once shaped, make sure that the gear is rotated in position to let the "Ice tray full" arm drop down. Then take of the clear cover, put the circuit board and motor back into place, then put the cover back on. Put the rear of the ice tray into the hole in the back of the freezer, the put the motor box back into place the way you removed it sliding the new prong into the ice tray slot and cross your fingers.
