111r popping out of gear

Recommended Posts

Hi all

I was on track on Monday and my 2007 111r (2zz) started popping out of 3rd gear when under load and quite often on the same corner. Various discussions are leaning towards worn engine mounts allowing excessive movement of the engine causing the pop out. Mileage is now 50k.

Can anyone relate to this, or suggest which engine mounts to go for if this is the case. Booked in for inspection next Weds.

Cheers for any pointers

Mark

That's a new one to me ? Try speaking to Paul at PJS, My 111r shifting is quite stiff till she's warm but not had it pop out, you must have been spanking it 😀

I went with the lotus motorsport engine mounts on my old s2 exige back in about 2006.   Added a lot of vibration into the cabin at idle but removed so much engine movement under load.

Sorry to hear of your problem Mark, I would try some of the simple things 1st -

  • Check engine/transmissions mounts are OK with no excessive movement
  • Check linkages all look OK, you may need to adjust but this is best done by a specialist
  • Check oil level, some other car manufacturers suffer from jumping out of gear when the oil level is low or oil is old

If none of the above don't sort it then the gearbox will need to come apart and investigated, Fingers crossed hopefully not 🤞

Andy.
