View Full Version : PLEASE HELP ME!! Clutch(?) Problems!

04-12-2004, 03:09 PM
I was leaving a stop sign today in my 97 GAGT 5 speed....first gear was fine, but when I went to shift into second....there was nothing. Third and fifth were still there. But no 2nd, 4th, or reverse. I got up to another stop sign and lost it all. Me and pops went to look at it and he managed to work it into 1st for me to finish getting home. What's wrong with my baby :( We were guessing clutch? But the 1st, 3rd, and 5th still being there is strange. Something electrical maybe? Any input PLEASE!

Your shift lever is attached to two cables. One cable selects the first, second or third slots. The second selects the foreward or back gear in the slot.

It sound like your foreward/back cable broke and is in the foreward (1, 3, 5) position. If you look behind the engine, you will see the two cables coming out of the firewall down low in the center. They curve to the drivers side and attach to the tranny.
