Icon8 Did my friend break my car?!?!?!?!

Ok, so last night I was to drunk to drive so I had my friend be my dd while we went to the store for some food. My car was blocking his in so naturally I say, Hey, lets take my car. bad idea i guess. I figured since we were only going like a mile no harm could come to this. WRONG. We get out of my driveway fine, but as soon as we turn onto the main road he grinds the **** out of second gear. Then I guess he panics or something and decides to floor it once 2nd gear actually takes. At this point the car is @4500 rpm spinning tires and i'm screaming for him to chill. He doesn't. when it was time to shift (about 1/4 a sec later), again he grinds the **** out of 3rd! This was an honest accident and the rest of the trip actually went ok. no problems.

Until today that is. When I get in my car today, the car would not shift into reverse. at all. I went to shift into first and it didn't like that either. I babied it a little and finally it went into first gear properly. I creeped up a bit and tried reverse again. Nope. So I pulled the crap out of the stick and it goes into reverse. I back out and then it took just as much effort to get it back into neutral. As of now, that is the status. Gears 1-5 work properly as if there is no problem at all. Reverse does work when I get it into gear, it just takes A LOT of force to put it in or pull it out (no pun intended). So I do not know what this means, i just hope it doesn't cost a lot to fix. any ideas? --> 2001, 5 spd, non-SH, H22, CAI, 84,000m. No fluid leaking or anything obvious, I looked for about 15 minutes. Thanks in advance.

i have a similar problem with my car right now. its my throughout bearings in my clutch. my car is hard to shift into just about any gear but 4th is the hardest even when my car is in motion. but i'm in the process of getting a new clutch. u might want to do the same. if its in neutral and u let off the clutch does it make any noise like something isnt completely letting go? my does and my pops told me it was my throughout bearing. cuz the noise stops when i push the clutch pedal in. also my car makes a whining noise when im driving. urs?

nope. It just grinds and won't shift unless I apply a lot force when attempting to shift in and out of reverse. It only makes the grinding sound when it doesn't shift. When it does go into reverse, it doesn't grind, but it does not feel natural. Obviously the guy who was driving wasn't pushing the clutch far enough and still forced it into gear. When you say throughout Bearing, are you talking about the Release Bearing? I hope so, b/c I have a new clutch that i haven't installed yet and it includes a new release bearing.

yes release bearing and throw out bearing are the same thing, but the next time you go to put it into reverse try reving up the engine a little bit while slightly pulling the shifter into reverse, it should help it slip in a little easier

alright, so I drove around a little more today and it seems like it's starting to "fix itself." It's like when I shift into reverse there are 2 postions the stick goes through when it is pulled back. the first one feels normal but that second "click" that normally pops it into gear is still a little stiff. It is no longer grinding either. Going back to neutral is still a little harder as well. I am at least comfortable driving for the time being.

my 92 si does the same thing, 1-5 is fine but reverse can be a bitch to get into gear. I have to "slam" it into reverse sometimes, and the clutch is all the way in(i mean its to the floor), it can be pretty annoying and embarrassing if it wont go into gear after 2-3 tries and im still messin with it :\

Yea really. My roommate has had to drive it to work the last 2 days and she says something doesn't feel right when she is driving it normally now but she isn't too auto-savvy, so tomorrow i'm gonna do some driving to see what's up. I'm starting to think about taking the lude down to our shop and replacing the clutch. I just need the time. Anyone know of any special tools needed? I've got the service manual, and I i'm gonna change out the flywheel too. Any other assistance is welcome!

Mine goes into every gear fine but 2nd. It grinds as it goes into gear, but once in gear it is fine. Is that the syncronizer? Anyone know how to fix this? It gets worse at higher RPMs. I want to be able to shift quickly into 2nd, not wait until my RPMs slow to idle and ease it into gear every time I take off. That is annoying. Sorry if I hi-jacked your thread.

almost the exact same shyt happend to me. i let my friend drive my car about a mile down the road. he has a turbo'd grand am so i didnt think anything about it (its an auto though) he floored it from 1st to 2nd and then into 5th! idk what fyck he did after that. but once i got back into my car to leave his house it wouldnt go into reverse for anything. he claimed that he didn't cause it but i was like well it work just fine b4 u drove it and now it doesnt?! i think he might have tried to slam it into reverse or something causing something to block it. i had to park it where it could pull out for about a month. it just eventually fixed itself. no probs now at all! NEVER EVER EVER let ANY of your friends drive your car b/c if they fyck it up the chances are they are not the ones that will be paying for it
