Your linkage part of it is under the console and also check the end where it connects to the transmission there is a pin that connect shifting linkage to a transmission shifting pin alot of the time those pins that connect the two snap or fall out you can drill it out and or find a bolt and nut to fit it as a replacement

Now im just going to for warn you to have some one do it is 400 to 600 dollars plus part because they have to drop the engine and tranny together ive done one for a friend it takes about 8 hours to do and only charged a hundred dollars plus help that was payment for me

id do i myself ive dne a couple clutches already bro clutch kits are 80 bukes on ebay

Thomas Smith

It is possible youve torn the synceonizers up in the transmission those hondas are not meant to be drag raced unless its built right a used transmission will cost u 250


my car is a 99 civic si and I got the same problem, I think it could be that slave cylinder is fried? could that be? im asking for any opinion
