Gearbox issue?

Post by Pontons » Sun Aug 25, 2019 11:46 am

My wife’s car is a 12 plate Juke 1.6L Petrol. I went to drive it the other day, I started the car with the clutch down and put it i to 1st year to pull away, as I brought the clutch up and revs up I didn’t pull away and the engine cut out, in addition to this I can’t change gear and when I take the hand break off and the clutch down the car won’t move at all.

Does anyone out there have any idea what could be the problem?

Thanks in advance.

Can you push it in neutral and handbrake off?
If you push it, does the engine try and turn?

Maybe stuck in gear, or more likely a brake caliper has seized on. You'll need to do a few checks to see what's up.
If it doesn't move and engine doesn't try to turn, then jack up each wheel and try turn it.

no issue with the engine running etc just can’t get it moving as it’s stuck in gear and when we try to pull off it stalls. I’ve read on other forums for different brand cars it may be the gear linkage that’s wither gone or popped of its connection. could this be the problem, but then why wouldn’t it free wheel with the clutch down and hand brake off. Could the brake issue be a safety point that it doesn’t release the brakes if there’s an issue with the gearbox etc???

Pontoon, Welcome to the forum mate, Can you put the gear lever into neutral because I suspect your gearbox could be stuck in 4th or 5th gear if this is so then your clutch has gone or the cable has a fault.
When you start your engine in neutral can you select all the gears ie 1st to 5th if you can then you should be able to drive off, if your car then stalls then I suspect your brakes are locked on.
You said that you started your cars engine with the clutch down, Stick it in neutral and try to start your engine without touching the clutch pedal.
Please let us know how you get on.
Its only a Juke if it's RED.

Is the gearstick physically stuck?
If you move it around as normal, does the gearstick feel normal, ie selecting gears

at the base of your gear lever the shiny ring that holds the gearlever boot in place lift this up and look at the gear lever linkages to see if they are jammed, you will probably need a torch, all the links have a plastic bush, one of these could have split jamming the lever.
