Why is my gearbox getting stuck?

However, sometimes these solenoids can get stuck and can prevent your car from shifting gears entirely. The most common cause of a stuck solenoid is the failure to replace your transmission fluid when you should.

How do you fix a stuck gearbox?

A transmission can be stuck in reverse or another gear if the clutch cable isn’t extending properly. A simple remedy is to pull the clutch pedal upward slowly and firmly. However, the cable may be badly damaged by rust, grime or overuse. Replacing the cable can be necessary in this case.
