Your synchronizers for 2nd are on their way out. You'd have to pull apart the tranny to fix it.

where your shifter is will take all that plastic divider-shi2 apart....were your stereo is it will be all tha way down by your cars computer...what your looking for is the two shift linkagase your linkages have two bolts front and back one should be loose....mine was way back there pried back there....i bought my 92 geo storm cheap cause second and forth gear didnt work ...problably by a company saying its more work than it needs....$$$ once you find them bolt...loosen all 4 and ceep your shifter in posisition were third and fourth gear are but in neutral and get all four bolts close then go through all the gears ...each gear you should tighten that bolt a litle more and more....although i would recomend getting somone who knows how to tighten them bolts realy know cause im an employee of auto stores i do this kinda stuff...the reason is second gear for you is not catching cause your shiftes are not tight....if it were your clutch youd have problems w./them all esp./reverse and if it were your transaxle./transmition youd have more than a it wont shift maybe get somone to give ;you a hand but don't have a transmition shop do it or theyll charge tha hell outa you just for a stupid bolt you wernt aware of.....,.....tell my how that worked for

I have recently bought a Citroen Synergy 1.9td when you shift to second gear it makes noise but shifting to other gears are normal can you tell you what is wrong?

....The Citroen, as do so many others, employ in the standard transmitions a group of fingers, if you will called "syncronizers" They are what help the transmition to traverse the gears smoothly. (moving from one gear to the other) they help insure that the gears have at least one tooth in alignment with the tooth of the other so you don't get grinding or premature wear on the gears. The sounds you seem to be getting are that of a syncronizer out of "Sync" Some times this works it self out, and the problem will subside, in more drastic cases, the syncs may need replacing.

How does a shaft drive work?

It works with gears on both ends of a shaft in stead of a chain. If you have two wheels and they both have gears just like a chain drive but replace the chain with a single shaft that also has gears on each end, you will understand how a shaft drive works.

What is difference between synchromesh and sliding mesh gearbox?

Sliding mesh - This is where the gears are not in constant mesh with each other and the gears on the main shaft slide over to mesh with the gears on the lay shaft/counter shaft. Synchromesh - the problem with constant mesh is that the gears crash into each other when changing gear because there travelling at different rpms (one at engine speed and the other a lot slower) They dont line up properly when spinning and when they go to mesh they end up grinding. So the awnser is Synchromesh which uses Baulk rings to lock onto the gear first before the sliding sleeve comes over to lock on. Difficult to explain how it works but basically its a smooth gear change.

How do gears on a 10-speed bicycle make bicycling easier?

Because humans, like engines, work best only in a range or speeds. Gears allows you to keep pedalling at a certain level of effort and pace regardless if you're heading uphill, on the flat, or downhill. This works by trading strength for speed or the other way around.
