    Do you have your basket out still? Are you making sure that the basket drive is seated all of the way inside the unit still? Are you making sure your basket drive is not hitting your clutch spring? These are the usual culprits. If you're not familiar with these parts, hit me back with your model number (located underneath the lid in the center rear) and I'll get you a parts blow up and type you up a walk through.

The basket drive has slipped down. Grab the large, white, plastic piece on the basket drive, rotate (to release the break pads) and push up at the same time to seat the basket drive in the proper position.

If you need further assistance, let me know

How to stop manual gears from slipping out of first on a chrysler crossfire


This may be from misalignment when fitting the transmission up to the bell housing. Bolts on one side done up to tension before the bolts on the other side. Check that a wire or something else has not become jammed between the box and the bell housing flange. Loosen off all the mount bolts and use rotation to tighten the bolts.. It basically that the clutch shaft ( input shaft for 1st gear is out of line with the main shaft and the gear is walking out of engagement.. Check also that the selector fork has been fitted correctly and that the gear is fully engaging. (selector fork in back to front and not enough movement to engage)

Wh does 1st gear jump out on accelerator release ?


There are a few things to check. Engine and transmission mounts replace any broken or perished . 1st gear selector shaft has a indent ball and spring to locate the shaft when in gear, check the spring is not broken. The gear box bearings may be worn giving the drive shaft to much end play. also check gear shift linkage is not worn.

Steps to Replacing a Clutch on mitsubishi express


for the full steps then get a workshop manual as there are some details that will be missed . Basically it is Remove the battery terminal. remove the rear drive shaft ( front also if 4wd). Remove the gear lever at the tower bolts on the gear box. Drain the gear box or be prepaired for the gear oil to run out the end of the transmission when you pull the box. . Place a bottle jack under the sump at the rear of the engine . Place a trolley jack under the gear box. undo the rear transmission mount cross member Undo all the bell housing bolts. lower the jack and the trolley jack and pull the gear box back. Undo the bolts holding the pressure plate on the flywheel a bit each at a time as you go around the plate . Remove the plate and the clutch plate ( be aware that the clutch plate will only go back in one way so watch the way the clutch hub was facing. Remove and replace the bearing in the back of the crank shaft. clean up the flywheel face ( good idea for a good non shudder job is to have the flywheel re-machined ) fit the clutch plate the right way and fit the pressure plate . Use a clutch aligner tool as it will be impossible to fit the gear box with out it. Replace the clutch throw out bearing. Now re install using the reverse processes As I said a manual shows it all

How do I take out the transmission on my 88, 5 speed camaro? I have the drive shaft off the gear shifter is out and the exhaust is out of the way. There is four bolts that hold in the transmission. How do...


there is no top bolt on the gear box. you do have to remove the torque link arm. it bolts to the rearend and the output housing of the gear box. then the 4 bolts on the gear box. you have to remove the trans mount and crossmember also. your trans will not just fall out. you will have to wiggile it as the weight and clutch slpines are holding it in. wiggile and pull rearword.
