Welcome! My name is XXXXX XXXXX I will do my best to assist you with this problem.
what happens when you try to shift the transmission when the engine is running ?
it goes into gear and no noise and it will not move at all? or will it grind and not go into a gear ?
will it shift into gears with the engine off ?
as I stated before it was not running it will not go in gear at all. When this first happen he was driving and it stuck in first. He thought it was the throwout bearing but that was good. He decided to replace the trans with a used one and it will not go in gear at all now. Could this be the pressure plate?
ok just to be sure I understand when the engine is off the transmission will not shift physically with the shifter into any gear ?
im sorry for the questions but I have to be sure
if that is the case if you disconnect the shift cables with the engine off can you shift the transmission by and into any gears ?
yes to the first question. The big shift lever moves freely and the bottom one just moves a little. I am not sure how much it should move.
can you shift it by hand physically by hand into any gears ?
are you sure you didn't swap the shift cables ?
no because we looked at the cables last night and if you switch them they are crossed and do not even go on the trans. as far as a gear that is what I am not sure of the top moves to 3 different positions and the bottom one (smaller one) only moves back and forth
ok but the top one can you physically feel it shift into a gear ?
it moves to 3 different positions without the cables on
I am not sure it seems very easy moving don,t really know if it is going in gear or not. The only thing I can say for sure is the top bigger shift arm moves to 3 different spots the bottom smaller shift arm only moves back and forth. Which one actually puts the car in gear?
do you have the old transmission still there ?
if so does it feel exactly the same when trying to shift ?
if you shift it by hand into any of the 3 positions and you start the car and it will not move at all there is a problem with hat transmission that was put in the car
if the pressure plate or clutch was a problem the shifter would still shift through all the gears with the shifter and either just not move at all or grind gears
if you can not get the shifter to shift it into any gear at all and the cables are attached correctly that used transmission has a problem inside it
If it does not go in gear then what is the problem because this is the same thing it did before the trans was changed
I am sorry but I feel I don't know anymore than when I started. Thank you but I am not satisfied sorry.
