Snap! The gearbox on my 2000 Alhambra just gave up today too!. I can only get 3rd & 4th gears. It's done 102,000 miles. I'll keep looking for advice, and post another bulleting here if I find anything out.

    Hi brute_betts. Found some info on another site (http://www.fordgalaxy.org.uk). Seems to be often due to a gear selector problem - the cables between the gearshft mechanism and the gearbox, which is under the battery. I'm taking mine to my local garage to have a look. Hope this helps. I suggets you register with Ford Galaxy oweners forum too (it's the same car as the Seat Alhambra)

I have a 2006 Hyundai Tiburon 4 cylinder 5 speed transmission it will not shift into 3rd gear it makes a grinding noise and you go to shift into fourth gear and acts like there is no 4th gear what do I do


sounds like the shifter plate has moved or the alignment on the gear lever mechanism is out of line or even the gear stick plate linc is out of line. how much wobble is in the gear stick when you put into gear. if you can put in gear and move it far left or right then its not working right.

I had new clutch fitted 3 weeks ago now the gear stick has gone loose and I only have 3rd and 4th gear


Sounds like one of the rods between the gear lever and gearbox has become detached. One rod transmits the forward-backward motion, the other left - right, with the "natural" bias keeping the lever in the 3rd / 4th gear plane - hence why you've only got 3rd and 4th gear.

You should have some guarantee from the company that fitted the clutch so contact them to sort it out.

My 2000 Nissan Xterra will not go into 3rd 4th or 5th gear


In the installation of a new clutch in most instances it is necessary to remove the gear lever from inside the vehicle . Check that you have the end of the gear lever actually situated in the groove that lines up all the shift rails as you may have placed the end outside the groove and can move only one rail. You have given no indication of a clutch problem at this stage so I am sure that is where the problem will be.

Clucth not disengauging....


try this.you have 2 shifter cables.one is select cable the other is shift cable.first put the transmission selector lever in neutral.then move transmission shift lever to 4th gear.depress clutch to if necessary to shift.move the shift lever to the 4th gear position until contacts stop.then you turn the adjuster turn buckle so the shift cable eye aligns with the eye in the gear shift lever.when installing the cable eye. make sure the flange side of plastic bushing at the shift cable end is on the cotter pin side.the cables should be adjusted so the clearance between the shift lever and both stoppers are equal when the shift lever is moved to 3rd and 4th gear. move the shift lever to each position and check that the shifting is smooth.

Auto transmition wont go into 3rd and 4th gear


I had the same problem I changed the transmission fluid & put a new filter in the trans, this fixed it good until I put my foot down to overtake the trans kicked down to 2nd gear & the hold light started flashing again & the trans started slipping again. I stressed over it for a day or 2 & then I took it out for a drive & thrashed it, Low & behold it came right. When you change fluid its impossible to get all the old fluid out because the torque converter holds a liter or two under pressure, so when I put my foot down some of the gunk blew through & blocked the pump it looses pressure & cant change gear. You need to get it flushed by a transmission specialist
