EMERGENCY! please help :(

Driving to school my car quit going into gear. I'm stuck in a parking lot with my tranny unable to shift into any of the first there gears. And not even the fourth moving. It drove 60 miles home flawlessly last night and 25 miles today. I don't know what to do.

Does it go into gear while its off?

Nope. Fourth and fifth kinda.

Check your bitch pin bro.  you might not have had one in ther period...By the way the bitch pin has NEVER just slipped out, although some people dont put them back sometimes and just use a 12mm bolt and nut. so check that. and the whole shift linkage as well

Ok, so it won't row through any gears, except fourth and fifth, while the car is completely off?

If that's the case, unfortunately you might need a transmission.

I can't completely attempt at diagnosis, because I'm not right there, with the car.

I think I will. This tranny in my car was supposedly an so but it was kinda effed up. First it was smooth as butter when I bought the car. Then it wouldn't shift into fifth at all, then it just had a slight grind in fifth. It's been working fine till today. I think I'll borrow the money and just get a new tranny. Got two year old crx axels and a clutch cable on the way. Get the tranny and the throwout bearing and it will be good. This car is a royal pita lol.

Yea they can be asshole but how can you be mad at that frontend hahah

If it's completely stuck in gear your clutch is gone. But if it moves into certain gears like CleanRENO said it could be a transmission or your pilot and throwout bearing are done. If I lived near you id help you swap a transmission in a day but I cant help sorry buddy. Dont let this discourage you though older cars like these are going to have problems once you deal with them all then you can enjoy it and when I swap in my Si tranny ill make a easy tutorial to follow if you need it.

Thanks guys. The car and I are home. The pastor at my moms church payed for the tow. The clutch is fine but when the stick is in neutral and I let it out the car dies.  It's weird.

I had the same problem on my crx it ended up being my throwout bearing.

Huh how odd. I just think I'll get that cheap tranny and a throwout. That and the axels your sending I'll be set

When you get another tranny, replace the clutch. A new throwout bearing will be in the kit.

My main reasoning for saying the tranny is shot, is because it won't go into any gear while the car is on, or off.
jmanwantsboost

Well they just put a clutch in or so they said. It works fine and idk how much I'm honestly going to be able to afford. I'd love an exedy OEM, but that's another 250. Effing car :/. I still love her though.

Personally, I never trust another person's word on a car.

Think about this, would you rather put it in, and not need it or need it and not have it?

Another thing, it's not a race car, it's a daily driver. You could literally buy the cheapest clutch, and have it last the life of the car.
jmanwantsboost

No kidding. I feel like they lied so far about what they did. The rest of the receipts from previous owners are nice though. I just don't feel the PO needed a six pick race clutch in a 92 HP car. You are right. Do it once, do it right.

Damn that sucks man
jmanwantsboost

Yea its been a harsh day. Hopefully my car will be better for it.

At least this way you will get some much needed bonding time with her. When my transmission went out i hadnt a single clue as to what i was doing. After research and some serious elbow grease i got the tranny dropped and put back in with only jack stands a jack and basic hand tools. You got this man trust me, it helps out alot when you do so you know what it is supposed to look like god forbid anyhting else happens  Very Happy .
tenkaracole

hope this turned out all right. although im sure you got her fixed and going like a top. Wink

Unfortunately my boss fucked me and didn't offer me one hour of work on my week off from school so I haven't been able to buy the parts I need. Really pissed . Been taking care of her though.

$60 clutch kits on eBay.  I've used several in the past and had no problems at all.
