Hello sammy

It may well be worn selectors in the box, i presume its cables which operate the gear change, might be worth looking to see if theres a bush worn on those.

Hi Sammy,

I have this problem with my 2l Turbo. What was the outcome for you? Did you get it fixed?

Ps: I'm in ireland too!!

If its not the selectors as suggested then i'm afraid it could be the second gear syncro Phosphor bronze baulk rings which slow down the gears in the box before it changes to the next gear and is always more akward changing back down than up

My problem with my carina 2.0 turbo diesel, is that sometimes it won't go into second gear, i have to coax it in sometimes, all the other gears are fine - no problem. There is no crunching, its as if the slot does not exist, and therefore forced in to 3rd gear and punching the clutch to get the speed up.

Any ideas?
