In my 1991 525i auto it can. The ignition turns off and the steering will lock if turned. Bad idea.

Nothing. It will keep on driving. There is a safety on the gear that will not enable it to be activated while in movement. It may destroy your gear though.

Bang depending on the vehicle, you will ruin the transmission.

I pulled your moms throttle into fourth gear.

no the gear stays in place , unless you take the timing gear cover off + the bolts that hold it to the cam it won't change the position either unless you crank the engine, the gear stays in place.

You can renew it by pressing the gear.

if you are missing any gears in your manual transmission it is shot. You might as well replace the clutch while you have the tranny pulled so you dont have to do it later.

High gear must be ground out, prob needs new transmission

it,s the bearings or a bad gear.

Under Armour Heat Gear keeps you cool, while Cold Gear keeps you warm.

I think with a car or a motorbike you shouldn't change gear while you are turning. Change gear before you get to the corner or change when you come out of the corner

well i'd have to know what you mean by a "gear drive". axle? ring and pinion? steering gear? driveshaft?

That happens when the transmission computer detects a malfunction and sets a code. It defaults to safe mode which is second gear. You need to have the codes read.

There is a gear on the distributor shaft and a gear on the end of the camshaft that it engages with. The gear on the camshaft cannot be removed as it is part of the camshaft. The gear on the distributor shaft can be removed if it is worn; however, this is rare. These two gears must be in proper mesh for the engine to run; one cog off and it will not start.If you need further assistance google ' finding top dead center on a 350 chevy'.

First gear down, the next four are pulled up.

assuming that it is the same as my 1972 mini. it is down and to the right (towards the driver) also, the gear lever will have to be lifted or pulled up to allow access.
