Default T-5?

I can't seem to get mine to shift into or out of gear anymore when its running so I think its life is over. Does anyone have a T-5 around they want to get rid of?

But it shifts when the motor is off?

What type of vehicle? 2wd or 4wd? I have a 2wd one from an '87 Camaro if you need one.

Yeah, it shifts okay when the motor is off. I kinda think the clutch isn't disengaging totally, like the slave cyl isn't moving the throwout arm enough. I'm kinda preparing for the worse though by looking for a new tranny

It sounds like a clutch-related issue. That is how my trans behaved when the pressure plate collapsed.

BTW, Chevy T-5's will not fit a CJ correctly.

there is a lot of play in my fork right now from rest position to the point of engagement. It might be a collapsed pressure plate...

Fork? Or shift lever? The T-5 has a replaceable bushing, clip, and boot that eliminate the slack from the shifter. It happens to all T-5's.

I had the same problem in my manual trans years ago. It turned out to be the slave cylinder.
