Okay guys I just sold my 03 tiburon GT 6 speed to a 16 year old. I just got a phone call from the kid saying it wont go in reverse..... "It stalls and just drift forward, no reverse lights" Now did he break somethng or is he putting it in 6th..... Any Ideas....


EDIT- Let me add that there is a new trans and clutch/flywheel kit in it

Smooth 1-6... "feels like something is blocking it to go in reverse"..... Im thinking throw out bearing...anyone thinking the same



EDIT- Worked fine for the last 5k miles with me since the trans was replaced. They had it in reverse, but i stopped going in all of a sudden.

I'd say meet up with the kid at a midpoint and help him out...shouldn't take but a few minutes to see about the issue and make a recommendation for repair. That's what I'd do at least. That is if its a short drive to meet him.

It definitely sounds like these people don't know how to operate a manual shifter with a reverse lockout mech. I'd loosen the shift boot, slide the reverse mechanism out completely and then see if it won't go into gear.

^^what he said is a great idea. you can unhook it that way or from under the hood and then try getting it in reverse. also if it was the throw out bearing wouldnt the pedal feel funny since the throw out bearing slides during every engagement?

yeah i know when i got my car, i wasn't used to the 6-speed thing where you have to pull up on the shifter to put it into reverse. I was stuck in a parking lot for like 30 min trying to figure it out lol but i got it.

thats funny, i hope its just the kid being a tard, or you are gonna have to fork over some nice cash.

i learned stick on a saab, so the first thing i do is try to pull up the bottom of the shifter

why woudl he have to fork over cash? He is in no way liable, unless written somewhere signed
"The reverse gear will work for more than 2 days"

legally he is not a part of the situation at all.
