The grinding noise can be an indication of a bad gear in the transmission. The grinding noise can also indicate a problem with the clutch.
As of the latest issues, Luffy has only used up to Fourth Gear.
It is controlled by the sliding switch on top of the gear knob. Switch in the forward position is off and in the back position on. It will only engage if the car is in 4th gear. The 1975 and 1976 models were known for having a weak overdrive unit (5th gear) so your actual problem may be the unit itself is bad
First Gear: 3.625:1 Second Gear: 2.043:1 Third Gear: 1.394:1 Fourth Gear: 1.00:1 Fifth Gear: 0.853:1 Reverse: -4.039:1
The duration of Fifth Gear is 1380.0 seconds.
Fifth Gear was created on 2002-04-08.
To switch back to automatic after being in the simulated manual mode, you need to shift past fifth gear. When you reach fifth gear, you can tap the shifter to the right twice and it will go back into automatic. Or, you can shift the car to neutral and then back to drive. I would suggest being stopped for this though.
The synchro for those two gears is bad
In vehicles with a five-speed automatic transmission, keeping the gearshift in "D4" will cancel the fifth (or "overdrive") gear keeping the vehicle in fourth gear; this setting is recommended when towing trailers or boats to keep the transmission from overheating.
fifth gear and the related components need to be replaced
sense, heaven. Its easy- its a word puzzle- first edition, second hand, third degree, fourth estate, fifth gear............
Why is 92 Dodge Colt gear shift hung in fourth gear?
