Answers:

Your problem could be either due to the syncromesh mechanism being out of order, or due to the gearbox needing to be rebuilt. Adjusting anything in the gear shift is at best a temporary solution and unlikely to solve your problem. If the syncromesh mechanism can be fixed, great. Or else, if you need to rework the gearbox - Compared to consulting a variety of mechanics, you might actually try and find a replacement gearbox and get it changed. It will save you the heartache and uncertainty, and since the car is still driving well, will serve you for a longer time. If the cost factor becomes too high, you may have to let your car go and look for an alternative. That's the way it sometimes is with cars that are out of production.

Hi,
As mentioned by Kumar, the best of solution lies in replacement of the gearbox.

Pls take the car to Daewoo cielo authorised service center & get the gear box overhauled with original overhauling kit. Or replace the gear box with another used one. There no meaning spending money for adustments etc.

i agree with shiva its better you replace the gearbox and ask your mechanic to thoroughly check the gearbox before replacing it even better if he can give you some warranty even if he charges a bit more for the replacement.
