Kia Troubleshooting Questions? Ask a Mechanic
The gears stopped working in my kia rio 2005.
Coming off the highway. I was down shifting. I went from third to nuetral and then tried to go into second, but nothing happened.
Couold it be the clutch, the transmission, or something in between?
Hey Dave, thanks for your help. I am sorry I was wrong. I am helping my little sister so I am geting information scond hand.
It is actually stuck in Third gear. It will not move out of third. Her boyfriend is an amatuer machanic and has been attempting to get it working. He has turned the car off and on. He eventually had to have it towed to his house. He was looking for the shift cables like in his car, but there are not any. At this point he decided it was too much for him.
So the shift lever will move side to side, it will touch both seats. It will not move forward or backward/up or down. It is stuck in third. If the car is off it is the same as if it is on. If the clutch is let out while the car is on it will lurch forward.
