1998 malibu won't shift into gear when cold outside but, works fine in warm weather,why?


you need a transmission fluid and filter changed.because if filter stopped up.transmission fluid little thicker in cold climate make it hard circulate through filter.when engine and fluid get warmer fluid get thinner where it can circulate through filter cause transmission to shift correctly.

My 1998 Olds Intrigue shifter button sticks when cold, 35 degrees and below. Yes, I do put my foot on the brake. Works ok after car warms up. Dale


Dale-there is a 'staple' that holds the shift handle onto the shaft, it is on the front side of the handle. Use a pick or a small screwdriver of some type to pull that staple out, and use a spray lubricant on the mechanism for the shift lock release on the shaft.

I spilled a bottle of water on my shift console. Our tempratures dropped and my automatic shifter is froze. Do I need to take my car to a mechanic for a fix?


You shouldnt need to, the only electronics located on the shifter are for the illumination. You should be able to heat it up with a hair dryer enough to move the shifter then dry as much of the water as possible.

My toyota solora started by jump start but would not go into gear, what should I do?


If i understand your question correctly, your shifter is stuck in park? Hopefully that is the case, look on the top part of the shifter console, there is a little square cover. You need to pop it open and press down on the button at the same time you take the shifter out of park.

Let the car warm up before driving it. These very cold temps can do a lot of strange things and you maybe chasing a red herring.

Shift handle is very tight


You might want to try sparying a lubricant down in the shifter lever surround itself...sometimes when soda or other sugary drinks get spilled in that area, the release mechanism gets gummed up, not allowing the catch to release properly...try some WD40 or some other pennetrating spray oil.
Spray it into every crack and crevice around the shifter, and all of the plastic parts too. Wipe off the excess and allow it about 20 minutes to penetrate deep into the parts of the shifter. Put your key into the ignition and WITHOUT STARTING THE CAR AND YOUR FOOT ON THE BRAKES, keep sliding the shifter into every gear over and over again. Try this first in order to see if this fixes the problem...if this doesn't do it, you may need to invest some $$$ to have it looked at. I know this sounds simple, but it could save you some serious money if this fixes your problem.
