The cable that connects from the shifter to the brake pedal is either broken, or you are not pushing the brake when you are trying to shift.

86 firebird wont shift! drove it yesterday, today it was stuck in park. i rocked the car back and forth and that freed it... but now it will only shift from overdrive to reverse. no park or lower...


You may need to drop the transmission pan and take a look at the parking paw mechanism. You might want to disconnect the shifter linkage and see if it will shift into the other gears.

It wont shift out of park


Check your brake light fuse in the fuse box. Some models will not allow the shifter to move from the park position if the brake lights are not functioning. Hope this helps.

Good Luck,

2000 pontiac firebird headlights make grinding niose when closed


This problem is caused by the headlight gear being stripped. If you go on ebay, there is someone who sells brass headlight gears. Once you put the gear in, you will not have this problem again. . . unless the other gear goes bad. It's usually the driver's side headlight that does it.

Wont go into overdrive> and wont take off in the right gear


You have to scan it. The transmission is shifted by the computer and if it detects a problem, it defaults to 2nd gear and will not shift.

Can't do anything more without codes.

Everytime I put my car i park it goes into reverse.


It sounds like you have a damaged shifter cable.It is an adjustable cable but if it is that far out of adjustment then it is probably damaged. Replace it.

My van in park just keeps rolling and wont stop


Check underneath the vehicle to see if your gear selector is moved by a short cable from the gear shift.
It may adjusting a little or it has come out of it`s retaining clip.
Good Luck

I have a 1990 firebird v-6 automatic and the shifter cable needs adjustment. The trans won't go into the selected gear (park). How do I do this?


the adjustment is going to have to be made on the transmission shift arm.get under the car find the cable and you will see it is hooked to the transmission arm that is where you will have to adjust this for it to go into park .
