I have a 1989 jeep wrangler. yesterday, after the stick shift felt stiff to shift, the clutch felt suddenly loose. Today, the stick shift stopped moving completely while i was driving. Finally, I was able to shift the jeep in to first gear and drove all the way home in first. when I turn the car off the gears seem to shift with the clutch down, but not when the car is on. any thoughts would help... thank you in advance


Sounds like you are having a clutch problem. The sudden looseness in the clutch pedal indicates a problem with either the hydralic system, (slave or master or line) leaking or clutch pressure plate going out. Check your clutch fluid resevoir first, ... 1989 Jeep Wrangler

Crunching Gears Hi, I recently bought a second hand Toyoto Yaris 2002 model which I've got about 5 months left on warranty. My problem is the reverse gear sometimes crunches (especially with a cold start) and 3rd gear is sometimes difficult to engage. A friend of mine suggested that before I engage reverse gear I should put the gear stick in & out off any other gear first as this will help to slow down the mechanism & make the gear change smoother...it worked. My concern is that th

My problem is with my 97 ford escort 2.0. Sometimes when I try to fully engage the clutch pedal while it's in 1st gear, the car rocks back and forth, like it won't stay in gear. Plus sometimes when I'm in 2nd, 3rd, or 4th gear, I can feel the car slightly **** forward like it's trying to go into a lower gear. And the whole time this is happening I don't feel or hear anything abnormal with the clutch or the stick shift. Please help?
