Transmission problems?

Hey everyone I'm new to the site and I have a 7.3l t444e engine with a 5 speed manual spicer transmission and I bought it with trans problems just trying to find the issue if anyone could help it would be greatly appreciated!

My problem : I have all forward gears it sometimes gets stuck in second I have forward moment in neutral and I also have forward movement in reverse. Iv tried adjusting the clutch to give me a little more pedal but the problems stayed the same.

Best Regards

Sounds like it's stuck in either 1st or 2nd gear. Shift fork may be broken or the end of the shifter that runs in the shift rails is worn, and has slipped over to the other shift rails. Either way it looks like the shifter will have to come apart on the transmission.
What transmission is it?

Sometimes the top of the shift lever wears and jumps out of the rails. It could also be the socket and pin it rides in. Of the small cover bolts are loose, it can jump out too.

You may be able to pull the top covet off and re-align the forks. Then you need to see what caused it to jump out of the groves.

If the shift rails all line up, and it's still in a gear, then you will need to pull the bigger top cover to check things out.

Yours may be similar to this.

Sounds as if you need a good independent shop that's familiar with diesel trucks. Removing the tranny and disassembling it should be that major of a job.

It's tough dealing with any vehicle that doesn't have a transmission working properly.
