Question about 1990 Pontiac Bonneville
1990 Pontiac Bonneville - The shifter suddenly is slack (floor shift) and I was told it is more than likely the linkage cable. Where do I find it and is it possible to fix on my own as I cannot aford mechanic's prices. It is a FWD. If it was a RWD I would have at least an idea and people I know that could help but no one seems to know much about FWD trannys. Thanks.
This should be easy remove center console and shifter cover . there are screws around the outside and center holding it in place,you don't have to completly remove to check upper adjustments and cable ends .you will see cable ends if wear or slack is not visible, With cover lifted shift from park to low and back again several times , look for loose ends or adjustments
if no sign of slack or exssesive ware leave cover loose and raise hood now have afriend shift the trans so you can locate cable ends on tranny you might have to slide under car to locate , check for ware (one end or the other will most likly be worn out) If you are wanting to save money you can replace cables your self for a third of a mech.cost it is usually a small plate in floor to loosen unhook both ends at trans. and remove cables pulling in to car,feed new cables in fromfloor out to trans .just make sure cables re hook to same shifter points ,its best to crank and make sure before completly securing console
