I'm thinking @SteveMatthews may be onto something - If the HVAC system is vacuum operated, one of the vacuum actuators is having an issue (ie: leaking). It may be getting adjusted without you having to do anything. When you shift gears, you take your foot off of the "go pedal" (not a gas pedal in this instance because it's diesel power ;-)), which causes a ...

If you're only having problems with 2,4,R, I'd suspect the gear linkages rather than the clutch - it sounds like it's not going fully into gear, which probably means the fore-aft linkage is loose or misaligned. I had a similar problem on a Peugeot many years ago, it turned out in that case that the gearbox mount had broken, allowing the 'box to drop enough ...

On top of what Paul already suggested... It is interesting that it is 2nd, 4th, and reverse (assuming that reverse is next to 4th) since they are all on the bottom half. Not sure what would break/wear out to cause that. Follow the cable from to pedal to the throw out arm to check for damage. Check the connections at the pedal and the transmission. Have ...

I would try and readjust the clutch again and see if that helps. According to the Haynes manual: ... there should be 1-2 milimeters of free play at the bell crank lower end. That's not very much play. Secondarily, I see from this forum, you might have an issue akin to one I had on my car way back when. Check the firewall where the cable goes ...

Torque converters don’t have “Dumps”. I think this person is taking about the pressure relief valve which is relieving hydraulic fluid pressure created by the transmissions hydraulic oil pump. The oil pump is driven direct from the engine. It is independent from the torque converter. The pump is working if the transmission is in any selection. So in N it is ...

When the car is in D and you start the engine the hydraulic pump in the automatic transmission is not providing fluid pressure until the engine starts. This fluid pressure is used to engage clutches in the transmission to engage first gear or reverse. An automatic transmission does not have gears like a manual transmission which are physically meshed into ...
