Shift lever 2003 chevy Impala

My dad has a 2003 chevy impala and the shift lever is in the center console, lately he sometimes finds that it is hard to shift from park to drive. It will go into drive but it is very hard to get it to do so. Does anyone have any idea what is causing this and how to fix it?

thanks

Sometimes the transmission sets a "hard code" that causes a hard shift from 1-2. Stop by an Auto Parts store that has an OBD scanner and reset any codes. If that doesn't work, change the tranny fluid and filter and try SeaFoam additive.
Good Luck.

My drivers heated seat is not working in my 2003 chevy impala and it also shifts hard.


1.)heated seat is usually the heating elements under the seat cover.
2.)shifting is likely a pc solenoid and valve body.CODE associated with this is a p1811.If your vehicle has high miles or there is alot of debris in the pan of the trans,then I would suggest a reman trans.

I can't shift my car from the park position.


mcdevito75 here, When you turn the car off the ignition switch locks the steering wheel, sometimes when you go to start the car it starts but you can"t move the shift lever due to the steering wheel being locked, try this, put the key in the ignition switch, turn the key and at the same time move the steering wheel, if you can move the steering wheel even a 1/2 inch that should free up the shift lever also.

2003 Chevy Impala transmission


Did you have it serviced or rebuilt, If you had it rebuilt I would take it back to the trans shop for warranty repairs.
If they just changed the trans filter I don't think it would cause your problem.You just have bad luck with the slipping trans

I am trying to remove the center console of a 2003 chevy impala to install an after market radio. Can someone give me directions please?


There are 2 10mm bolts in the compartment hold of the center console that must be removed. Two similar 10 mm bolts must be removed at the front of the center console, near the driver's and passenger's lower legs. The top of the center console, where the shifter is located, snaps out. With this top piece removed, the cigarette and auxilary outlet can be disconnected. Four more bolts near the shifter bracket need to be removed, and then the console is free. Hope this helps someone. I needed to remove the center console to install a component for a car stereo.

I have 2003 chevy impala the transmission starts shifting hard after the car is up to operating temp.sometimes you can turn it off and start it again and it will stop that for a little while.


Have the vehicle scanned. If you have a code in the computer for maximum adapt/ long shift, replace the EPC pressure control solenoid. This a real common problem on the 4t65e transmission.
