    Angry WTF is wrong with my tranny!?!?!

    Just had a new luk clutch put in along with with a fly wheel and a slave cylinder and also the a master clutch has been changed and I'm still having shifting problems. It's hard as hell for me to get my camero in reverse and sometimes when I pull up to a light and pop my car in neutral and try to to put it back in if first it won't go in, I got to really force it, nothing ever really grinds though and sometimes when I park and put my car into gear (usually second) it will go in real sluggish I got to put a lot of pressure on my shifter. 1600 dollars later and nothing has been fixed, can anyone tell me what's wrong with my car!?!?! Please and thank you

    Sounds like an internal issue to me if I had to guess..

    What made you conclude it needed a new clutch kit and slave?

    Generally speaking, when a clutch goes bad enough to stop gear engagement it effects all gears not just a few.

    Since we're just guessing I agree there could be issues with your hydro system having air in it.

    That issue has been discussed many times over the years here.

    If you paid a company to install your new parts, take it back.

    If I were the tech working on your car, or any manual car for that matter, I would inspect the gears, synchros, rails, forks, etc before installing the parts. You could have a bent shift fork or like was stated, air in the system. Take the car back and have the system re-bled. If the problems persist, then have the trans itself inspected for worn parts.

    Sounds to me like you don't have full disengagement of the clutch. Could be a hydraulic issue, or a mechanical one. Did you have the flywheel resurfaced? Or did you replace it? You may need a shim to move the slave forward, which gives you more distance to disengage the clutch. YOu can test this by jacking up the rear of the car, and then while it is gear, push the clutch all the way in. If the tires move, then you don't have full disengagement.

    ^^^ agree with this
    Check for full disengagement first and most likely it's air in the hydraulic system or you slave needs to be shimmed.

    Right on fellas appreciate all the help. Flywheel was replaced both master and slave was replaced and a brand new luk clutch was installed all done by licensed shops. Took the car back today gentle men at the shop was cool about took it back told him I had tHe same problem picked it up about an hour ago. Told me h re-booted it and re bled it. Feels ten times better then last week, pedal sits were I feel like it should, no stickiness, feels better then I first bought it. I'm assuming it must of been air in the lines, I would never think it would cause that much of an issue if it wasn't bled right go figure... Reverse is still a tad bit tougher then the rest of the gears but I'm assuming that's just because its the farthest gear and its spinning the opposite way. But I defiantly could say I'm now satisfied lets just hope it holds up!

    It may be slider keys or a bent fork. I have a feeling it is internal, not what you wanted to hear I know. Have it bled again. If it is still not going into gear then you will have to look inside the trans. T56 units are know to blow slider keys and forks.

    You don't ever shift into reverse hard so the chances of that happening are slim to none for reverse. I can see if it was for 3rd or 4th though.

    when ever you want to go to reverse in any trans. you want to go to any forward gear. that will align reverse up. when i broke my reverse fork in warranty, the tech gave me that advise and man what a difference that has made. and it don't matter what kind of standard tranny it is. my son drives honda's, and the same applies on them. If you do go to reverse and have to let out just a little bit on the clutch to get it to pop in gear. then try the any forward gear before going to reverse. you will see it works very well.
