1997 subaru impreza wont go into reverse

The subaru gear linkage from the gear stick to the transmission often breaks or gets jammed on something. Look under the car where the gear leaver goes down to the transmission and make sure there is nothing obstructing it. Otherwise try adjusting the clutch linkage to make sure it is completely disengaging.

2002 Nissan Altima 2.5 s transmission won't shift out of 1st gear after being replaced.

first try to manually unlock the shift lock mechanism located on gear shift selector and if that does not work check to see if the linkage is lined up correctly with the according gears, good luck the answer lays within the time of removal and installation, just double check everything.

I have no fifth gear and no reverse in my 1997 4wd kia sportage

The shift linkage inside the transmission is bent or broken. From the shifter there is a ~10 inch shift rod that goes into the transmission which toggles a fork that selects one of three independent levers in the transmission. When you go into reverse it pushes the rod to the left and locks onto the rod which controls 5th gear and reverse. If the forks are damaged then it cant grab the knuckle of the rod and therefore it want engage the gear You will probably notice if you go back and forth from 1st to reverse a bunch of times you may even get it to drop in once and awhile. The fix requires removing the transmission from the car and taking it apart to access the inside linkage.

You best bet is to remove the transmission yourself as that is the bulk cost of repair (about $800.00), then take it into a transmission shop for a fix. You should be able to get it repaired for about 200 dollars.

We cant get car out of park we checked linkage and the bolt holding linkage to arm on transmission is barely threaded in
