When I first had my car (2 years ago), the gear changes were smooth and the gearbox worked fine. Recently, I've noticed that 2nd gear feels a bit rough, and changing either to or from 2nd is considerably more difficult than the rest of the gears.
I got my mum to drive my car a few weeks ago, and she said the same, so it's not just that I'm not changing gear properly or anything.
Does anyone know any possible cause for this, and how expensive it would be to fix?
Have you bothered to check the fluid in the clutch slave cylinder or is it a cable clutch?
Sounds like the synchros possibly gone?
Before condeming the gearbox, check your engine and gearbox mounts.
If one has sheared it'll make gear selection difficult.
Funnly enough my gears started playing up today. I got REALLY bad. I can hardly change gear now.
It's because my clutch got really lose today for some reason and now the clutch is just about biting when the clutch pedal is fully depressed T_T
Hi can some please help me, I am beside myself and have spent too much money with any resolve for my Hyundai Getz. My car was giving issues with the clutch. Especially when hot and in use the gears would it take and then the clutch pedal would be too hard. I had a new clutch kit fitted after a week the pressure went down in the pedals. I took it back to the mechanic who then said its the hydraulics, so had a new master cylinder fitted. All this time there was still a violent vibration when taking off and releasing on the clutch pedal or dropping down gears. One month later clutch issues again this time refusing to take gear and could not be driven. Sent it to another mechanic he put another new clutch kit and did a clutch o|he and put new plunges. Gears still don't feel right. Two weeks later whilst driving the car and came to a stop street I can feel like the car wants to switch off. I put it in neutral and it was giving violent jerks and wants to switch off. Pedal still had pressure but gears wear being sticky. I pumped the clutch pedal just to get a gear selection to keep it mobile. Now I cannot drive it because it I know it will switch off. All the mechanics that I took it too do not seem to understand what I am saying and just do a temporary fix and rip me off. Please can someone share some insight, I would be most grateful. The last mechanic that worked on it said it sounds like it needs a new slave cylinder. Why would it need that if I just had both cyclinders changed a few months ago
