Stuck in third gear

Shifter would pop out of fourth. It also felt kind of loose, Like the linkage was loose. Now it is stuck in third. When I drove it last is sounded like it might have a trans. bearing noise. May just be there was tension because I was trying to pull it out of gear.

Disconnect the linkage from the tranny. Manually move it on the tranny. Does it still do it. If so you have an issue with the tranny. If not its the shifter.

My 2007 mitsabishi triton A/T gear shift is stuck in drive.I believe it could be a solenoid.It happened after driving on the beach. Cheers


Are you sure it's not just the linkage jammed up with sand? If it is internal, drop the pan and you should be able to see if a solenoid has broken, as they usually come loose from the base. Good time to change filter and fluid too.

3rd gear stuck


It could be the cable binding up inside the sleeve or stuck detents inside the transmission. Try to find the cables under the hood, disconnect it from the transmission then try to move the shifter in the direction it was stuck before (side to side or up and down).

Does it feel like the shifter cable is actually moving the detent in the transmission? I've seen a broken shifter cable in a cavalier a while back with the same symptoms you described. Check the cable where it connects to the transmission. It's under the hood on the drivers side.

Can't shift trans out of first gear 1991 explorer


can you look under the vehicle at the transmission, look on top, do you see any linkages? I'm not sure you will, just want to check.

The 5 sp trans that is in the Ford Explorer is normally a "top loader" meaning that the shift linkage is internal to the transmission, if this is so, while your looking do see an access plate in the floor board above the transmission, if not to repair it you will have to remove it. if you are not comfortable with this procedure, I recommend that you find a quality repair shop in your area.
