When you put it in gear, does it pop out? What gears? If so, you probably have a bad transmission. It the clutch is slipping, you need to adjust the clutch cable.

Will not shift automatically 1999 metro?

Jumping out of gear in a manual transmission is usually a sign of a worn detent in the internal shift linkage under the shift cover. This usually requires a rebuild of the transmission.

Why does car keep slipping out of first through third gear there is nothing wrong with transmission but 4th 5th and reverse stay in gear plus you just put in a new clutch?

It could just be a detent, but most likely the bearings are going in the transmission and it's a little mis-aligned when you try to go, pushing it out of gear.

Broken clutch fork, or other parts.

How you burn clutch?

If you "rest" your foot on clutch pedal it will burn (riding clutch) Either keep clutch pedal competely to the floor or keep completely released no in between If you drive the car, you are burning out the clutch. If you don't fully shift into gear you will burn it out too which is easy since the clutch may stay engaged and not let you shift. If you give it gas or lose speed when you finally do shift you've worn your clutch. Do this a few times at high speed and its over. This is what happened to me and it happened fairly quickly on the highway. Ride at the wrong speed in any gear you will burn the 'clutch'. So that means you can't downshift to 2nd gear if you are going 60mph. If you read the list of situations where your engine and transmission can be totally ruined within 5 minutes you will wonder why people even bother. Many manual transmission drivers on the internet are unaware of these situations so be wary of advice from a friend even if he can drive manual transmission. Do yourself the favor and get professional instruction - that's what I'm going to do.

What is the Spring in the clutch and the brake used for?

For the brake it's pretty obvious. You don't want the brake to stay on when you aren't braking, so you need the spring to push it back. For the clutch it's the same but in reverse. You want the clutch to stay on, except for when you're depressing the lever. The spring keeps the clutch on, until you use the lever to overcome the spring. Then when you release the lever the spring kicks in again, engaging the clutch.

What is causes a 1996 Saturn SC2 dohc manual trans to grind a little going into fifth gear and how do you fix it?

I am having the same problem, If you let it go you will chew through you clutch quick, that little grind does a lot of damage to the clutch plate i have replaced the clutch after i ran mine to long and also the master and slave cylinder with new parts it did not fix the problem the only thing i can see what is left for me is the shifter linkage. Until you find the problem try and stay out of 5th gear. if you have to go into 5th gear i have found that if you shift into neutral keep the clutch in until the RPM's are just over 1000 and you drop below 40mph then shift it will not grind. its a pain but that little grind once again does alot of damage. I found out the hard way.

What does the clutch stay down instead of popping back up?

It sounds like there is air in the clutch line somewhere. Bleed the clutch (if possible, some clutches are "self-bleeding" and need to be replaced entirely).

Is there any alternative to the MG5 tranny for a 1996 C1500 4.3 5speed?

You can use the New Venture Gear 4500 ( mw3 ) to replace the 3500 ( mg5 )The 4500 was the same except for the first couple years when it had a lower granny gear (6.32 compared to 5.72 in the newer versions). You will need a bellhousing, but the smaller clutch you have in the 3500 should work. It will bolt up, you can even reuse the transfer case. The crossmember will stay in the same place. you will already have the hydraulic clutch setup but you will need the 4500 slave and master cylinder.

Why does my motorbike keep cutting out when i put it in gear?

AnswerDoes it have a safety "kick stand" switch?It a wire grounding when you sit on it?Loose coil wire?Does it cut out no matter what position the throttle is in? In other words, will it stay alive if you pull in the clutch, keep the revs of the bike up, then click it into gear?If so, this might be a clutch issue, such as a grooved clutch basket not allowing the plates to separate enough. An easy fix, if you know your way around an engine. If not, I suggest taking it to the dealer. Otherwise, try the easy fixes first, play around with the barrel adjusters on your clutch lever and see if it goes away. If it's cold outside when this happens, try running a slightly thinner transmission oil to keep the clutch pack from sticking together.
