Q: Put the clutch but gets stuck on 5 th gear

asked by on

Recently put the clutch on and now gets stuck on 5th gear

My car has 123765 miles.
My car has a manual transmission.

You will need to check the gear shift linkage when you move it to fifth gear. The most common problem is the gear shift linkage is binding on the body somewhere. Check to make sure the transmission mounts are tight, and no motor or transmission mounts are broken or out of position. I suggest having a qualified mechanic inspect why your vehicle isn’t shifting properly. A certified mobile mechanic from YourMechanic can visit your home or office to diagnose the problem.
