Question about 1997 Cadillac DeVille
There are times when I hardly have the strength to shift my car. This usually happens when it's cold outside. Is the shift linkage a cable or mechanical?

SOURCE: gear shifter
It sounds like you might need some transmission fluid or you might need a transmission fluid change. In the worst case senario you will need a code reader to ***** the situation. Also was this car from America or was it from Europe because there is a difference in transmission capabilities.

Have your mechanic adjust the interlock between the trans and the brake. In doing so you will also adjust the brake light switch which should cure your battery drain problem.

yes change fluid. if that dosnt work buy new shift solinoids. and replace them. also check all the wiring from transmission to pcm and from conector to solinoids when u take the pan off. just disconect the solinoids. and use a digital multimeter innva brand put it on continuity and touch wire after wire till it beeps indicating wiring is touching . some will beep because thay are still conected and would have to remove transmission to disconect them. i just had this exact problem on my 94 sls . i replaced solinoid a-b and did a fluid change and checked the conections going to the transmission. and it runns good now

Just had the same problem. The problem is that the rubber bushing on the transmission linkage deteriorates and falls off. This causes two problems - shifter is loose and a metallic clunking sound is heard when shifting. It's not the shifter inside the car. It's the linkage underneath the car. You have to buy the bushing (if sold by itself) or the linkage kit. The linkage is on the passenger side of the transmission between transmission and right side exhaust pipe. Ensure engine/exhaust is cold prior to trying to access. Regards.
