When pulling off my car intermittently pops out of first.
It happens as I raise the clutch and start to accelerate.
It feels possibly as though it is not fully engaging.
It happens at least once a day
My car has 57000 miles.
My car has a manual transmission.
Hi and thanks for contacting YourMechanic. What is wrong with your vehicle is the transmission shifter detent springs are worn and making the gear shifter not stay locked in. The detent springs are located in the top of the transmission under the shifter. These springs hold the shifter into the gear that it is placed into. If the detent springs are not damaged and they are working fine, then the synchronizers inside the transmission are wearing out and the transmission would need rebuilt or replaced. If you’d like a second opinion on your shifting issue, then seek out a professional, preferably a professional from YourMechanic who can come to your home to inspect your vehicle.
