    Default trouble getting in gear

    my car is a vectra b 1998 1.8 and has just passed its mot , but now its just all of a sudden just started giving me trouble with getting it in to gear.

    best way i can describe it is the other day i started it up and upon releasing the clutch there was like a clunk, i turned car off and restarted and put it in gear and it went in no probelm and drove with no problems for the next few days, but last night i was driving and upon approaching a roundabout i had to come to a stop and went to select 1st gear and it wud not go in, turned engine off and restarted and got it to go in and drove home no problems, the engine runs fine, im getting no whinning noises from the box and the clutch aint slipping .

    can some 1 point me in to what could be causing this to happen.

    thanks david

    Default an update

    dont know if this makes things easier to identify the problem, but insted of turning engine off, if i declutch it again then it goes in to gear

    Just one of those things happes on all cars as the miles go on, if you change your gearbox oil, it wll likely either get rid of the problem or make it a lot less noticeable.

    I just picked up the oil from vauxhall for £20 for 4 litres (although dont think ill need as much) and the labour is about 25 at a local garage.

    I'd try that , really got nothing to lose.

    mine is getting done saturday
