Question about 2007 Volkswagen Jetta 2.5 Sedan

1 Answer

07 Jetta 5 speed. Car wont move. When gears(including reverse) are engaged and the clutch is let off, it'll begin to rumble in the engine bay. Nothing is hanging and it's difficult to look ins

No RPM show when gas is throttled. When it was being pushed the noise was made but it seemed to be in intervals.

Sounds like you may need a new ******, or at minimum a clutch.

SOURCE: Reverse gear has grinding noise...?

Have them flush the fluid out under warranty and put in new fluid, and have them bleed the clutch lines in case air is getting in there. Audi and VW claim lifetime transmission fluid but it's BS - I've changed relatively low mile fluid from these cars and it was horrendous. It's possible that the fluid itself is causing trouble, but it's more likely that it is a synchro problem. If it was a clutch issue, you should have problems with more than just reverse gear - a clutch simply engages and disengages the engine and transmission, regardless of which gear it is. The problem (if not fixed by fluid) is in the transmission, and being under warranty, don't accept another "suggestion" like they're giving you. Changing your clutch isn't gonna do it.

SOURCE: how to remove transmission , how to replace reverse gear?

Are you sure that it is gone? make sure the all the bushing on the transmission are good it maybe that it is not able to go all the way in gear. If you do need to take it out get a good manual "Bentley" are the best it will show you the inside of the transmission too. Haynes are also good but not for working on the transmission it self

SOURCE: Transmission will not engage gears but does turn

I take it's a manual transmission, and if that's the case, if the engine is running, and you difficulty changing gears, either the mechanical synchronizer of the transmission or master or slave cylinder is malfunctioning. This is further discussed in this handy diagnostic artice:
http://yourhandymanzone.com/Your_Handyman_Zone_How_To_Pages_Vehicle_Car_Zone_Cars_Trucks_Vans_Transmission_System_Shifting_In_Manual_Transmission_No_Poss_Engine_Runs.htm

Here's another article discussing the car being stuck in one gear, which may give some complementary background information for you, specifying four probable causes of it:
http://yourhandymanzone.com/Your_Handyman_Zone_How_To_Pages_Vehicle_Car_Zone_Cars_Trucks_Vans_Transmission_System_Stuck_In_One_Gear.htm

This should help.

Good luck!

Noise when shifting gears

transmission synchronizers most common cause of transmisson noise in certain gears, and not others, might want to check the gear oil level. Transmission rebuild required. To read about them and what they actually do, then here is a good read:
When you shift gears in your standard shift car, you move a rod that moves a fork that engages the gear. Depending which gear you're shifting to, a different fork does the job. The fork moves the collar to the desired gear, and dog teeth on the collar mesh up with holes on the gear in order to engage it. You engage reverse gear through a separate, small idler gear. The reverse gear always turns in the opposite direction of the other (forward) gears.
In years past, double-clutching was common in order to disengage a gear, allow the collar and next gear to reach the same speed, and then to engage the new gear. To double-clutch shift, you pushed the clutch pedal to free the engine from the transmission. Then the collar moved into neutral. You released the clutch and revved the engine to get it to the right rpm value for the next gear so the collar and the next gear spun at the same rate to allow the dog teeth to engage the gear. When the engine hit the right speed, you depressed the clutch again in order to lock the collar into place on the next gear.
Modern cars use synchronizers in order to avoid the need for double-clutching. A synchronizer, or "synchro," lets the collar and gear synchronize their speeds while they're already in contact but before the dog teeth engage. Each manufacturer's synchro is slightly different than the others, but the basic idea is the same. For instance, a cone on one gear will fit into a cone-shaped depression on the collar. The gear and collar synchronize their speeds thanks to the friction between the cone and collar. Then the outer part of the collar moves out of the way so that the gear can be engaged by the dog teeth.

Just replaced the clutch and still wont engage or disengage

It can't both not engage and not disengage? If you can't put it in gear even with the engine shut off than there is something wrong with the transmission internally. Let me know if you have any questions and I'll do my best to answer them. Thank you for using FixYa.com!

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?

Have all gears that work find but will not go in reverse it a 5 speed

Is this a new truck to you? Some manual's have a manual reverse lock-out, meaning you have to engage the lock-out to shift into reverse. This is usually done by pulling up on a small lever just under the shift knob.

Otherwise, the lock-out is inside the transmission and if that breaks, the transmission has to be removed to fix it.

The other possibility is that you don't have a synchronized reverse gear. It will not automatically sync with the engine speed. Try lightly putting it in reverse while letting the clutch up to the engage point, you know, right where the clutch first starts to grab.

Have issue with H.Santafe V6 5 speed manual 4WD, was driving slowly in first gear then the car stops ( smouth stop), tried to engage 1st, reverse..but nothing happens, when in gear with the cluth pedal...

All without warning. well it happens. This is what has happened, the clutch plate is probaly still good and release bearing and the clutch disk,there probably all good. Inside the transmission is the input trans bearing,This is held by an inner circlip, This part that is needed is called input shaft bearing.the good new is that you wont need a whole transmission just the front part. The shop you take it to all they have to do is remove the transmission as though they are doing a clutch job, then they'll take it one more step they have to remove the input clutch shaft and replace it.Its not an expensive part.it wears out just like a clutch.

5 speed 1990 toyota 4wd,my transmission wont engage to first gear or reverse when engine is running but will in engage when engine is turn off

Sounds like the clutch is not releasing properly. If it grinds when trying to delect reverse this will be the case. It may be a hydrolic fault or the clutch itself. Check to see if the slave cylinder rod is actuating when the pedal is depressed.Check for loss of fluid.
