problem #1

Jan 112016


  • Manual transmission

I was sitting in the drive-through at my vehicle for about 15 minutes, I go to take off in first gear, realized I dropped my drivers license, put it into neutral and grabbed my drivers licenses. I go to the leave again for the second time now & I had no problem taking off in first gear, however, there was no possible way to shift into 2nd 4th or 6th so I decided I would limp it home. But first I try turning the car off, locking it, unlocking it, hoping it was some sort of weird computer issue. As soon as I got to the stoplight, I take off In 1st gear shift into third gear and start playing with the clutch pedal (Pressing in and out but only pressing to friction point) while in third gear pushing the clutch in and out then all of a sudden when I came to the next stoplight I was able to shift perfectly into All gears and the problem had gone away as if it never happened, Has not happened since, very odd issue and I had not been racing on it or beating on it all day..
