They had a problem with this plastic washer that is in the shifter tower it sits just under the shifter it self and gets worn out and causes this to happen- hope that helps.

SOURCE: clutch sliding or slippage

Chech the free play on the clutch pedal it could be to tight. If so adjust the pin in wards of the clutch master under the dash board so that has free play.

It sounds like your synchro's are going. You may try changing the gear oil (75w-90). Use a GL-4 type oil.

up under the shifter there is a there is a shifter bushing that is located in the shifter housing that is rubber and it will either be gone or worn out and also i would replace the plastic ball that goes onto the end of the access the shifter you will have to pull back on the carpet and on each side of cover will be 2 screws that you will need to take out and pull the cover up past the carpet....once you have done this where the shifter arm goes into the shifter housing there is a flange that has a spring in it and you can take a screwdriver and push down on the flange and turn and it will release the shifter so you can access the bushing and the ball.....let me know if i can help you in any other way and let me and fixya know how i did and a thumbs up and a comment would be appreciated....i have done hundredof these and this will fix the problem and make it feel like a new trans....i am pretty sure that you can only get these parts at the dealer........good luck and have a blessed day.......thanks......

How do I fix a manual shifting problem. Is it the clutch or transmission. Is there an additive I can add to the transmission to try and help ?

Sounds like the syncro may b damaged. Typically a clutch problem would be noticeable in all gears, especially shifting into reverse when vehicle is running but not moving. Try giving a 2 count for engine RPMs to drop before going into third to see if that helps. Won't fix anything but might cut the grinding sound. Till you can get the tranny fixed or replaced.

My 99 z24 cavalier standerd shift it will not shift into 3rd gear

The gear may be stripped, can't catch other gear,have you been grinding this gear,will have to go into transmission and replace third gear, will have to wind second gear out and shift to 4th gear.May be better and cheaper to get a remanufactured transmission cause all parts are new versus just 3rd gear being replaced.

Auto won't down shift when o/d button is pushed

This button only makes the gearbox change from 3rd to 4th or 4th to 3rd, will not down shift in any other gear, make sure it is in 4th gear, usually above 60km, than press o/d off it should go into 3rd gear, if it does not than see a automatic specialist, it is usually a sensor, if you go to Toyota they will charge you a fair bit.

Automatic transmiddon will not shift out of third gear.

Does it shift normally in drive and just won't go into overdrive, (4th gear), or is it hung up in 3rd from a dead stop?
