Its a gear shift issue.


The shifter needs to be inspected. The shifter assembly is got misaligned, it has to be open and realign.


There are many other possibilities. But if it was working right up till now and suddenly this occurred then its shifter assembly alignment issue.


Also i suggest you to refer these gear shift issues, which are mostly noticed. These are direct links with appropriate solutions to the specific problems of gear ****.

SOURCE: The gear shift get's stuck

Could be the shifter interlock switch - your car requires that the brake pedal is pressed before it can come out of park. If that switch is not working, the car won't ever know you're pressing the brake, and won't let the car out of park.

check the transmission oil, for metal bits stuck to the drain plug. If you have some then it will be bearing failure in the gear box.

I was driving my '93 Toyota Tercel, When I went to shift, the shifter got stuck in third gear. Now I am down to my last $100, and I fear my car is done for. The car has 240,000 miles on it.


So you were driving when it got stuck? Were you able to keep driving but only in third? And did you hear any noises?

There is a cable that runs from the shifter to a shift lever on the back of the transmission. It connects just below and to the left of of the air filter housing. Look and see if the anything is damaged, or broken off. If that linkage is jammed or broken you wouldnt be able to move the gearshift.

If you check out the linkage and dont see any problems, detach the cable from the shift lever. Then
try moving the shift lever by hand. I can tell you exactly how to detach it if you need. I will have to go look at the cable on my car to remember how to remove it. I have a 1992 Tercel, should be the same as yours.

Thats the best case scenario. Worst case, transmission is bad.

When you push the clutch pedal, does it feel normal?

Automatic gear shift in 94 toyota tercel stuck


what is stuck?

the linkage or the cable from the shifter to the trans.?

block the tires so the car can not roll away...
open the hood and remove the cable from the shifter on the transmission.
see if you can manualy move the shifter on the trans.
if that moves... you may need to replace the cable (shift linkage)
