Manual transmission stuck between gears Carol 4-8-04  
My son has a 1998 Chevy S10 pickup. He cannot afford a mechanic right now so everything being done is by "backyard" mechanics. He started having clutch problems the master cylinder and slave cylinder were changed. It drove fine that night, the next day as he was driving it locked up when he tried to shift to 2nd. It will only go into 1st.

When the slave cylinder was changed it required removing the transmission and some of the fluid leaked out. Somebody checked shift levers thinking maybe they were not aligned correctly and they are okay. Some people say it lost too much transmission fluid and replacing it will make it shift right again, and others say the transmission is shot. Any advice?

I suppose you need to be more specific about being locked into gear.

If the transmission will go into neutral and then only into 1st, then I would think you have a linkage problem.

If the transmission is stuck in 1st and will not shift into neutral or any other gear, I would think something has caused something to bind.

If the transmission isn't clunking, grinding, or howling when the vehicle is moved, I would tend to think the transmission is not yet toasted.

If you think the transmission is low on oil, drain it all out. Check to see if any chuncks fall out. If nothing out of the ordinary drains out then fill it back up with the proper amount of the proper type of oil.

Then try it again.

You may want to check the adjustment on the clutch. It may not be releasing all the way. 1st gear is always more worn than any other gear. If the clutch is not releasing enough you could get it into 1st and not into any other gear.

Good luck.

How in the hell do you get the 5 speed tranny out of a 97 4.3 litre s10. I need to replace the slave cylinder and i cant get the tranny out because of the location of some of the bellhousing bolts. is there a secret?

How do you release the clip off the line from the slave cyclinder that connects to the transmission? Do you have a picture of the disassembly?

You have to beat the firewall in a little around the top bolts to gain enough room to remove them. use a long metal rod and hammer, working from under the hood. don't get carried away, just enough to get them out.
