Answer 2
You said it is a "4 speed standard" - did you mean a 4 speed automatic? A standard transmission has a clutch. Not trying to insult intelligence here, but the symptoms don't make sense to be a vehicle with a clutch. You had the statement of "entering 1st gear randomly", which is what's throwing me off. -
Comment 1
4 speed stick.WhenI put it in first gear it acts like it wants to stall or does stall. "Randomly" it doesnt happen all the time and there is no particular sequence of events that precedes that action. -
Comment 2
IS IT HARD TO PUT IN GEAR? ON A WILD HUNCH,CHECK TO SEE IF SHIFTER LINKAGE MAY BE HITING WIRE OR WIRE HARNESS WHEN SHIFTING. OTHER THAN THAT WELL GOOD LUCK. -
