check the linkage and possible a bad tranny up on how it works Everyone should have a manual for their vehicle, and the library should have a professional shop manual available, for FREE, in the reference section(make copies of the correct sections) read up and fix it like a PRO! :) good luck-Dave

What part tells the transmission to shift gears?

I am unsure what you mean by your question.There is either an analog hydraulic computer inside the transmission called a valve body that makes the decisions or a Electronic computer that directs the transmissionORYour teacher could be looking for "The manual Valve" or "Shift valve" or "Range Valve" But at the end of the day the driver moving the lever shifts the gears.

Why will my transmission not hold in park?

When the transmission lever is in 'Park' it activates a small rod (known as a "pawl") that slips between the teeth of the transmission gears and locks the transmission at a standstill. It is possible that through age (or mis-use and abuse) the pawl may have been bent or broken (e.g.- someone tried toput the vehicle into 'park' while it was still moving). If you're lucky, perhaps the rods running from the shift lever to the transmission have gotten out of adjustment (or bent) and the lever is unable to activate the pawls action.

have someone change gears, while not running, and make sure the linkage from the gear lever, whether automatic or not, is moving the linkage for the transmission itself. if the linkage is moving on the trasmission, then its probably in the tranny. also make sure the drive shaft is working (runs from the transmission to the rear differential).

What could be wrong with a 1993 dodge ram 250 van if it will not move when transmission is applied?

The first and cheapest thing that comes to mind: is the shift cable still intact? There is a cable between the gear selector in the cab and the gear lever on the transmission. Crawl under the car, put someone inside to work the gears when you tell them to, find the gear lever, and have your friend move the gear selector. If the gear lever on the transmission does not move, the cable is broken.

How do you drive a manual transmission pocket bike?

There is a Left Hand Lever on the handlebars whick you can pull. That pulls on the clutch which allows you to change gears by kicking up a small lever a little bit forward on the left foot peg. To start off, you hold down the clutch lever, kick up the foot peg lever to 1st gear, slowly give it a little gas by twisted the throttle just a little bit, and then slowsly let go of the clutch hand lever. While riding, when you need to change gears, just hold down the hand lever, kick up to the next gear, and then you can let go of the hand lever. Hope this helps.
