    Hi all,
    I got a bit of a problem with me Accord.. it get really hard to select gears... Any gears...I don't know if its the tranny box or the clutch cylinder..I need to dip the clutch quite fast to change into gears...sometimes while driving it get stuck in neutral and won't go into any gears...so I have to dip the clutch again and again to select the gears...third feels like a crunch..not a lot but still can feel the crunch...
    Any thoughts...

    Hi Nav, Has this condition just started or has it been a gradual process it could be a numerous factors.

    It can be a clutch issue or a simile issue as dirty fluid which is making your pedal stroke ineffective.

    Sorry to hear this...I am just wondering whether the seller has some sort of responsibility

    Cliff's right, this is the sellers responsibility, providing they're a trader. The only problem is if you've had the work done, you haven't given the seller a chance to fix it.
