Gear selection issue - 2.0 Tdci 130bhp


Recommended Posts

HELP!!! 

I have issues with selecting 1st, 2nd or reverse gear when the car is cold.

So far the following has been tried...gearbox oil change using Ford oil, clutch bled, gear selector cables reset and even a change of actual gearbox!!! Nothing fixes this problem other than starting it in gear. Not much help when you are in traffic and going up and down the gears. I know it’s a common problem with Ford’s but no one seems to have a definite fix for it.

Hope someone can help before I head to the woods with a box of matches! 🤦🏻‍♀️

 

Thanks in advance 🤞🏻

There are two copies of this thread, probably caused by the lag problems that have been reported when posting.

No, but the best way to check is engage each gear whilst the engine is off (jack the car up so the wheels turn, select each gear and see if it fully engages) if that is working ok you can rule out internal mechanical failure or selector issues.

If it won't engage gears whilst the engine is running, but will whilst it's not, then it's the clutch not disengaging fully
