Transmission problems

106 Views 1 Reply 2 Participants Last post by  surgeon83
Recently, my transmission has been acting up

I have had trouble getting into first gear. I try to push it up, but it refuses. I have to let go of the clutch, then push it back in and put some muscle into it to make it go in

All other gears are fine, just that.

Any suggestions???/

Someone said it could be my clutch, and thats an expensive proposition to repair.

I had that problem for a while, turns out that the clutch pedal must be adjusted so that it engages right off the floor. There's supposed to be an inch or something of play when you first push the clutch down. Maybe refer to the owner's manual to make sure. Or you can have the dealer do it for $40.
