Clutch or Linkage?
We need a little more info, please.
Does the shifter move at all, or does it seem like it's frozen in place?
Can you get the shifter into any gear with the car running or not running?
Does the clutch pedal seem to have the same resistance it's always had, or is it mushy, or go all the way to the floor easily?
We need to know if we're troubleshooting a linkage problem, or a clutch problem. Your answers can help us figure that out.
can you show me a diagram
fluids are fine, no codes, and it wont shift past 2nd gear. any help?
Let's start with the year of your Sunfire. That might make a difference. Then, you need to tell us if you have a manual or automatic transmission. FriPilot
I'd check the transmission fluid level first and then for a slipping band inside the transmission.
the only problem that you can repair yourself would be with the linkage. but if all other gears work except reverse then the problem is probably internal and should be inspected by a professional. it makes a big difference if the trans. is manual or automatic also.
You don't know how to shift
im assuming that its an automatic,if so then its just because your transmition is messed up,or your rear gears(not the trans gears)are damaged.
Sliding Gears in a transmission are straight-tooth spur gears with a taper (also known as a lead) to make engaging easier. Helical gears are mostly used in a transmission because spur gears produce gear noise and have a great strain on the teeth of the gear since only one tooth can be in contact at any given time. But because helical gears cannot be taken out of mesh, spur gears are used for the reverse gear because reverse spins the opposite way and cannot be in constant mesh.
no you cannot and there still isn't a glitch
You can do this by loosening up the gears. If you are having difficulties, you can take it into a mechanic.
Very hard shifting between gears accompanied with a bang. That has been my experience in my Pontiac Montana.
In Gears of War 2, the player may choose who they would like to play as whereas in the first game they cannot. Gears of War 2 also has a Guardian mode which is similar to Assassination from the previous game
gears, gears 2, and gears 3
Some axles have adjusters on the inside that need loosened, others require a spreader to spread the axle assembly enough for removal.
most likely behind the plate covering the timing gears, at the front of the engine.
You can remove the linkage from the shifter to the transmission and manually shift transmission.
Use a cotton swab dipped in kerosene. Gently wipe the gears with the swab. Force the gears to rotate by turning the wheels. Watch that you do not get the cotton caught in the gears. If you cannot or do not want to get kerosene, use fingernail polish remover that does NOT contain acetone.
If your Pontiac runs a 700r4 gm transmission you have stripped a reverse input shell. The transmission needs to come out for repair.
gears, gears 2, and gears 3
Spur gears have straight teeth while helical gears have curved teeth. Generally, helical gears are usually quieter and smoother in operation, while spur gears are easier to make and much less expensive.Helical gears are stronger than spur gears.
- I just installed a new timing CHAIN on my 1997 Pontiac Transport that has a 3400 engine in it. If you get the kit at autozone that comes with the gears and new gaskets it only cost me $ 45.00.
Transmission fluid is low. Check the level of this fluid ONLY with the engine running and at normal operating temperature. To check it otherwise WILL give a false reading. You cannot check the transmission fluid level on a cold and idle engine.
my husband is trying to replace the master cylinder on a 1994 grand am. he was wondering on how to align the gears for the abs.
Can you shift gears? IF you can its at least working. I guess your question means the opposite. So if you feel slippage when shifting gears or cannot operate in one gear (reverse, for example), the transmission is about to give out.
its on the top of the transmission just look and have a friend shift the gears and look for the shifter linkage its connected to the neutral safety switch just disconnect the shifter linkage and unplug the wire harness and take the screws off The Haynes manual has a fair picture of the switch and it's location.
