If it will not shift out of park when the brake is pushed then in will be the shift interlock, but if it is still hard to move after out of park then it will be a shift cable

I have a 2005 Saturn Vue, lately I've noticed my gear shift is super hard to shift into 1st & so on. Is it the cold weather, and if so, is there something i can do to make it manageabl


check clutch hydrolics to make sure fluid is not low. Try double clutching. When in neutral, push clutch in, then out and in again and try shifting into low.

Hard to shift gears when cold


Could be the shift cable is dry for oil due to the age. You may have to replace it. You could disconnect the linkage at the trans and try it to confirm.

Transmission Question


It sounds to me like the transmission is starting to fail. As the clutches inside the transmission wear the clutch pack gains additional clearance. Your pressures in the transmission will be higher with cold oil so it has a tendency to build a bit of extra pressure, but it's also slower in flowing through the transmission. This results in a harder hitting first gear. As the transmission warms up, it will reduce the viscosity of the oil and work fine. Cold weather kills automatic transmissions. Let it warm up before driving it or it won't last long. It will require an overhaul soon.

Hard to shift my gears when car in cold.Won't even go out of neutral to 1st gear.Forget about going into reverse.


With the engine off, check your operation of the gear shift. If you can go in and out of the gears fine without the engine running, then you have a worn clutch disc that needs replaced. If the problem still exists then you either have low fluid/weak hydraulic system, or there is a problem with the syncro that may be adjusted.

2006 4 Cylinder 4x4 Will not go into gear. After great effort it will finally shift into gear. When stopping at lights , it is hard to shift into first gear. Hydraulic clutch is full. No grinding of...


Sounds like something in your shifting cable, or linkage is corroded, or in need of lubrication. I would guess underneath where the weather gets it. See if you can spray some lube on it to get it to ease up. If it does, you are at the right spot.

Tranny slips in reverse


Reverse clutches are burnt. Clutch material is getting into valve body causing late shifts since valves can't move. transmisison will have to be overhauled. wish i had better news. sorry

Manual transmission at times has trouble shifting


2003 hyundai, should only have hyundai approved fluids in both the cooling system and transmission. If you take your vehicle to a transmission shop other that hyundai let them now there is a special fluid that goes back into the either radiator or transmission. Regular transmission fluids viscosity is to thick and will make shifting very hard. My Mazda has the same issues Wrong fluids go back into the transmission when I have had work done to it making the shifter hard to shift in cold weather. A Worn clutch can have the same effect.
