Subject for a new post, oil smelled funny and was a little golden when I just changed it....hmmmm. Should be better now!
Avery, Glad it worked for you.

Smile Broken shift spindle? J-B weld

As an update to my problem I was able to get out the little piece using the marine grade J-B weld on the end of the old spindle and putting it back into place and the next day pulled the spindle with the little piece stuck to the end of it. I tried 3 times with some 2 year old original strength J-B weld with no luck, I wasn't able to roughen up the little piece inside the engine case and the marine grade still took to it.

Ok I am new to this and just looking for some help.

I recently purchased a 2000 Honda rancher 350 TE and I am having trouble with the shifting of the fourwheeler. When I turn the key on, no codes flash or anything, and you can shift through all gears with fourwheeler off, both up and down. Now when I start the thing and start running through the gears, if I don't give it full throttle and just "putt" through the gears everything is fine, it will shift both up and down. but if I get into fourth gear and throttle wide open, it won't allow me to shift into fifth, or back down into third, I have to turn the fourwheeler off and turn it back on and everything goes back to normal, it is not an intermittent problem, it does this every time. I read on one forum where someone said the angle sensor being bad would cause this, mine wasn't coding bad, but I went ahead and changed it.

The speedometer does not work, and when the wire connectors are plugged together for the speedometer, my gear position doesn't read, but if I unplug the speedometer, the gear position will read correctly.

I know this is a long shot but I am very frustrated and figure it cant hurt but to try and ask others with loads more knowledge then I have on these things..

Thank you all for taking the time to read my thread and any help would be greatly appreciated.

I have 2016 Rubicon w/ 21 hours, I have had this prob with the fault malfunction - flashing,it want shift into gear, makes no sound,I turn it on and off , rock it back and forth, not temp sensitive,if it does go into gear then it goes into fault - then its in gear and want restart with - flashing, took it in to my dealer thought was still in warranty, It was out by 8 days, my fault thinking thats just part of dealing with the es, The dealer said the oxygen sensor was making it go into fault mode ,flashing -, I didn't believe it,still Dont believe thats what was wrong, t They said they were going try and get Honda do goodwill, said they would cover it that the atv still looked new,I even took my cover because they set them outside untill they work on them,its never been in the mud or even rained on. got it back working then next day it stopped, found manual on line did the dia, it has code 42, when thru all the connections etc, reset the computer , it clicked about 2 times then went back to fault 42, called Honda they said I need take it back, they wold document i, They acted like they were the one that would authorize the good will warranty after the dealer ck's it out.Then Honda said it was up to the dealer and the locall Honda regional rep named Sam to do a goodwill warranty, with it being out of warranty Im betting they want cover it, especially after guessing at the oxygen sensor. im guessing its in the harness,shift motor/sen,ecm. Ive read the angle sensor could cause it but with the code 42?

what do youall think?

Im guessing Ill end up having to fix it myself, going thru the steps in the manual.etc.

Thanks for any help
