Hard gear shift to 3rd gear


Hilux LN111R

Recommended Posts

If there is some mechanical wear in the shifting mechanism, it can contribute to less than impressive gear changes, but I would look at bleeding the clutch fluid first. The slave cylinder may not be working to it's best ability. Give the hydraulic fluid a flush and see if this improves gear changes.

Did that fix it?

I have issues with 4-3 changes, 2-3 is good, 3-4 is good, but 4-3 I need to depress clutch, shift 4-2-3 and release clutch to get it to go from 4-3. Sitting at the lights with clutch depressed, I can shift 2-3 , 3-4, 4-3, 3-4, 4-3 without any difficulty, but when rolling I cannot go 4-3 direct unless I provide a LOT of force and then it only goes in about 30% of the time!
The clutch works well and engages smoothly from standing starts and no obvious issues while driving, apart from the 4-3 gear change issue.

I have been driving manual and automatic cars and trucks for over 52 years and this is the first manual vehicle that I have had with shifting issues like this.

Is there a solution?
What should I check first?
