Okay so i own a 1996 honda civic hatch back i need to know what the part that shifts the gears is called? I also need to know how to put it back on. now its not the rod that moves the gears it is the rod with the round end and looks like it just bolts on to the tranz. i thought it was called the shift linkage but i cant find the part for my car.

Re: my shift bar was on the ground
Starting from inside the car, you have the shift level. This is whatallows you to change gears. This goes through the floor and connects to a shift quadrant. Linkage then runs from the shift quadrant to the transmission by means of shift linkage.
The linkage usually has while plastic balls that help connect the linkage to the top or side of the transmission.

your tranny shifts according to pressure the transmission control unit regulates the pressure to provide smooth shifts you need to take the car to a good tranny shop that has a scanner that can check the shift points
all you have to do is pop the little square piece around the gear shift lever up and there is a wire with a tiny bulb on it. It is a pain in the butt to get all the pieces back in place and put the square piece back down. i have had to replace mine like every 6 months. be careful not to use too much force because you can break the clips that secure it in place and that will look worse than your bulb not working
I thave the same problem with my civic ek 96 model the tranny work fine when its cold but when it get warm and i put it in P or N and D4 again it will stock in 1st gear I have to wait 3 to 4 hours to get cool and it work fine again. Hope somebody can help me. Thanks Eli
That is not recommended, as it could cause transmission damage. Since you have a VTEC you should get a power boost at around 5000 rpm which should make climbing hills easier and not need a shift of the transmission.
You will need to check the automatic transmission fluid level to make sure it is full. Allow the engine to get warm and then open the hood and pull the transmission dipstick out. Wipe it off with a rag and then stick it back into the fill hole. Verify that your fluid level is up to the line. If it is low, add Honda ATF fluid to bring the level up. If your car is a manual transmission, you will need to get underneath the car and then open up the metal plug. Use a large ratchet with a breaker bar and remove the plug. Grab some gear oil with a handpump attached and then pump new fluid into the hole until it starts to run out. After it starts to run out, quickly seal up the hole and retighten your plug. The shift control solenoid externally mounted on the transmission can also fail and cause your Civic to not shift. Replacing the shift solenoid and flushing the transmission with genuine Honda automatic transmission fluid may eliminate this problem. A broken internal spring can cause the same issue. If the shift control solenoid does not repair the problem, the transmission may need to be replaced.
I would first recommend making sure the Transmission fluid level is correct. if it is then you might have some issues with the cable that controls the shifting mechanism. this could need adjusting. Good Luck
