Broken Shift Fork?

Fun stuff on the way to work today, something transmission related has broken and it is now stuck in third gear. The shifter will move side to side but won't budge front to back. Had a problem once before where the transmission was stuck in gear that turned out to be a broken shifter cable. In that instance, the shifter would move freely up and down but the gear was not changing. This and a visual inspection of the cable leads me to believe that it's not the same problem this time.

So...any ideas? Broken/bent shift fork? Throw out bearing? Just trying to get an idea of what kind of cost I might be looking at before I drive this heap at 40 MPH and 5,000 RPM to the mechanic.

Car is a 2003 Hyundai Tiburon GT with 6-speed manual transmission and just over 80k miles.

I've already searched the forums but haven't found anyone else who mentions not being able to move the shifter at all. Thanks in advance for any help.

Re: Broken Shift Fork?

have u inspected the linkages where they meet the transmission? i dont believe it would be the fork, i dont think its the TOB because even with the clutch engaged you should be able to move the shifter. i think its either a cable or possibly a problem with the counterweight

Re: Broken Shift Fork?

The linkages at both the transmission and the shifter look fine. I can manually move the lower linkage, lifting up and down but the upper one isn't budging. Even with the clutch pushed in and two hands tugging, I can't move the shifter vertically. When it was the cable before, the shifter would move freely but wouldn't change the gear. After removing the cable, one of the ends had broken inside the sleeve. I replaced the cable less than 2 months ago.

I should also mention that I've had clutch issues for a while on this car...the same and most people report having on here due to the faulty clutch/flywheel Hyundai used. I should also mention that I'm the second owner of this car, so no warranty for me and no way of getting it repaired under the class action settlement.

Re: Broken Shift Fork?

Well I dropped the car off at the mechanic today. Said he probably wouldn't get to look at it till Monday so I guess I'll post back then with the verdict.

Re: Broken Shift Fork?

Mechanic says it's likely the synchros on 3rd gear, possibly more. Decided to go with a 2005 6-speed with 44k on it that I found locally instead of doing a rebuild. Putting in an ACT clutch kit and ARK flywheel at the same time. Can't wait to get my car back and hopefully not hate driving it everywhere anymore.

Re: Broken Shift Fork?

I'm surprised you went back to the well of goodness that is the Hyundai 6 speed... I would have at least gone to 5 spd if not automatic.

Wanted to avoid:

Manual to Auto

1. Automatic Transmission
2. ECU for automatic
3. Transmission control module for Automatic
4. shifter linkages
5. Shifter boot and mounting plates
6. shifter mount
7. Axles
8.Torque Converter
9. Flex plate
10. Transmission mounting bolts
11. New gauge cluster

or

6-speed to 5-speed

1. Linkages
2. Shifter
3. Axles
4. Etc.

Hoping to have better luck this time around...we'll see.

Re: Broken Shift Fork?

oh oh oh i get it... you're buying a whole new transmission. When you said 05 6-spd i thought you meant a new car.

Re: Broken Shift Fork?

Haha. No, definitely not. Hyundai will have a hard time ever luring me back after the way they handled the faulty clutch/flywheel on these cars. Wish I had the $ for something new but for now I'll just hope that my $2,000 sacrifice to the transmission gods is enough.
