Tranny problems with my 97 Cobra
Hello, I just bought my 97 Cobra less then a week ago and now I'm having big problems. Last night I was driving it, jumped on it and went to shift from first to second and it wouldn't go into second. It didn't grind, didn't do anything, so I shifted into 3rd and all seemed well. When I came to the next traffic light I put went to shift very easily, again no second gear, tried to skip second now no 3rd. I pulled into a parking lot And tried to just move the shifter through the gears and it would grind if I tried to shift into any gears besides 1st or 2nd and would not go into neutral. I limped the car home in first and this morning I pulled the shifter out and checked for any issues there and everything seems fine.
I put the shifter back in and shifted through the gears, it was tough to get into all the gears with the engine off but i got it to shift through the gears. I then started the car up I put it in first, let the clutch out and it seemed fine, pulled into second let out the clutch it goes to take off like its still in first, put it in 3rd, 4th, 5th and reverse and it acts like its stuck in a forward gear and reverse. So I am figuring that the trans is stuck in first gear, is this a common issue? A relatively simple fix or is time for a tranny?
