    1995 F 150 can not move shift from 2H seems to be stuck

  • williambrown Dec 06, 2008

    My 93 f150 did not shift either, only had 4h and 2h. Then one day, the transfer case shifter came up off the floor in my hand. Turns out a very common problem with 90s fords is that the transfer case shift bracket rusts away and breaks. Is it a big job to fix as far as calibrating the shift linkage once i replace the bracket?

93 Chevy, gear shift **** between 2nd and 3rd

Remove the fluid - get a good flash light - get a very long screw driver - put the screw driver into the drain hole and force the transmission out of gear. Then remove the Transmission and replace or repair. Cheaper to replace. You bent the forks on the shift mechanism.

Check vacuum pod on front axle at the gear hub or pumkin it will have a black plastic cover over it this pod engages the gears for 4X4. Remove cover and spray down with WD 40.

theres locking pins that hold it in gear that kind of resemble a door latches it`s my guess that there springs are no good and they just are staying open allowing it to slip back out of gear.

4x4 low engagement

Ok let me be frank cshoxie I had actually owned a 1998 Nissan Pathfinder SE. The 4x4 lever is to the left of the gear shift. It looks like a manual tranmission gear shift. I could have engaged my even in DRIVE at LOW speeds.But wans't recommended by manual. However on the shift has 4-low and 4 HIGH but this vehicle would only go in 2-wheel and 4H.

5th. Gear

Sounds like you may have bent a shift fork or your cluster gear has some missing teeth on it now. I would venture to say that is it a bent shift fork. This will require the transmission be removed to gain access to inspect and repair.
