Q: Car not going into fourth gear

asked by on

Car not going into fourth gear.

If the transmission linkage is not the cause, then the internal transmission gears would need to be checked to see if the blocker rings are damaged. This would require the transmission to be removed and disassembled. I recommend seeking a certified mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic, come and test your vehicle for you to check all the linkages for a diagnostic of your car’s shifting issue.
