My trans. won't come out of 1st gear!!! I can pull back on it a little and get it to disengage the first gear syncros but it won't come out of the first gear "gate". Is it the trans. or the shifter???? Does it have something to do with the cags solenoid???

Please don't tell me the trans. is junk!!!!

Thanks all,

Mitch

Is the clutch OK?

I had a similar problem in my 94. The shifter would get stuck in 1st or it would lock me out of reverse.

I think the clutch is o.k., it disengages when I push it in and engages when I let it out, no slippage. I can pull the shifter back far enough to get it to disengage the syncros but not enough to get it out of the first gear gate.

Just keep it below 60mph /images/graemlins/supergrin.gif





Sorry man, I don't know what would cause that if the clutch is working properly - even still you can pop it out of gear without the clutch.

I believe I have seen this posted before (long ago) on the mORGue. If I remember correctly, bent shift fork and/or broken retainer spring on the syncro locking sleeve was the problem.
Do a search on "shift fork" on the morgue for a plethora of info....

If it won't move with the motor off then it's not the clutch. Sounds like the shift forks. ether way you will have to pull the tranny.
