No reverse, 1st or 2nd gear

Hi, thank you for adding me to your forum, I am a new owner of a Fiat Ducato 2.3 (not new to campervans/motorhomes).

almost finished converting into a day van when yesterday 2nd gear started to crunch and then would even go into 1st gear, managed to pull away in second but lost reverse when parking, this seems to be where the problems are lying, took apart the gear linkage and pivot (as advised on this site ) all greased up, still the same. The Gear stick will go up and down but limited to hardly any movement side to side. The previous owner said a recon gearbox was put in a year ago.

Sat here scratching head and worrying how much this is going to cost me ! I sold my VW for something a bit more reliable.

Many thanks in advance

Hi. And welcome.
Still sounds like a selector issue..

Look for similar posts in Ducato section...SEARCH in Advanced..

Re: No reverse, 1st or 2nd gear

Right then after cleaning all the linkages, making sure the 2 cables are free gear shaft was moving through all the gears, didn't check with engine running so don't know if we had 1st to 5th, but then checked after spraying with wd 40, 3rd was where 1st is 3rd was where 5th was could get 3rd but then, put it into reverse and its totally locked up now, can get reverse with a struggle but that's all. And now reverse is where 1st should be. I'm thinking gearbox has misaligned
