Q: 2004 Toyota Matrix won't go into gear

asked by on

I replaced the clutch, slave, and master cylinder. The engine starts, but won't go into gear. It feels like it is stuck in reverse and won't disengage to go into other gears.

Check to make sure the shift cables are reinstalled correctly. Make sure when the clutch pedal is pushed that the clutch slave cylinder is pushing the shift fork correctly. If you still have issues then contact a qualified mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic, to inspect why your car won’t shift into gear.
