Disco 1 AT not shifting into 2nd or 1st.
Posted 25 November 2015 - 08:06 PM
However, this past Monday Nick D'Amico and I checked out Cow Mt. after picking up his RRC from TigerDan's and it was there I realized when trying to drive down some steep inclines that I can't manually shift into 2nd or 1st.
When its in drive it hits all the gears just fine but no luck when going the manual route.
Has anyone experienced this or have any suggestions?
Dan mentioned that the linkage might be bound up on something. So I'll look at that as well.
Any and all thoughts are welcomed.

The linkage makes sense. You might check that nothing is jammed inside the gear shifter housing, the cable moves freely, and that the selector lever on the transmission is moving freely.
Also, I now have some parts trucks if you need anything.

On a side note I drove my rrc t our cabin for the last 2 days.its snowed 3 times and with the night temps below freezing my shifter is noticeably stiffer to operate in the morning when its cold.

My vote would be with the shifter obstruction from the cabin. Perhaps someone was using the gear selector as a piggy bank.
I was thinking long lost pen cap :-)
