Drive Train Affected: 4WD


On vehicles with a manual transmission, worn shift bushings can cause the transmission to pop out of gear, especially when coasting down in 1st or 2nd gear. Replacing all the shift linkage bushings is pretty straight forward and not expensive and will commonly correct this concern.

    Engages into 1st and 3rd gear...but, not 2nd, 4th or reverse....
    Does it sound like worn shift bushings.
    I live in Costa Rica, and I am a woman. I want to have an idea of what the problem is before I take it into see a mechanic...they often break more things than they repair....hit or miss.
