my car will only shift into gear when car is off
I have a 1988 nissan 300zx turbo with a manual transmission. It was driving fine until I had it
sitting for a few months. Now when I turn the car on it will not shift from neutral into any
gear unless the car is off. When I put the car into gear and start it, it will not shift out of any
gear. I was told it may be something to do with the flywheel or maybe not disengaging? Any
help would be greatly appreciated!
Sounds like a bad clutch. It won't shift out of gear because the clutch will not disengage the trans from the engine to allow for the changing of gears. I won't make any promises on it being the clutch, but it'll be a good place to start.
if you put it in gear and start it does it move? Is the shifter not moving into any gear or does the shifter move but nothing happen? Any grinding? when? How does the clutch pedal feel?
Yes the car does move a little when its started in gear. It will only go in and out of gear when the car is off. If I try to switch gears while the car is on it doesn't want to move. The clutch pedal doesn't have much of a spring to it either.
Failed clutch system. Pretty sure u have a hydrolic clutch. Check clutch fluid and top off if needed. Check for leaks. Clutch Master cylinder or slave cylinder may be leaking.
i have the same problem i was driving my car everything was fine and i was on the free way and it stoped running i tryed to accurate but it just idled i come to a complete stop. turned of the car then turned it back on and but it into gear and it wouldnt move itz a honda prelude vtech engine
Same deal, check the cluch fluid, if it ran out then you have a leak somewhere most likely at the master cylinder or slave cylinder.
Check your Slave cylinder might be bad.
High humidity locales can cause the clutch disc the rust to the fly wheel which can give similar symptoms the other gents sound very close to the mark,slave ,and or master failure.
