As louser suggest the cables may be broken but then you can change the gears by hand by popping the hood and adjusting it directly on the transmission to get it home. ,, tugging the cable from there will also tell you if the cable is broken (once its slack) or needs to be tightened.,,

for the shift lock simply unscrew the handle of the shifter and lift it out. then remove the clip that locks the shifter..

PS that's just a workaround to get it going if its one of those.. you need to replace or repair which ever one it is as soon as possible.

1995 Nissan Altima Stuck in First Gear


1. check transmission fluid level or if you can change the fluid & filter.
2. check throttle position sensor (tps).
3. if fluid level & tps are ok & still not upshifting automatically, temporarily (so you can take it to a transmission specialist) , try to manually shift. starting from dead stop, shift to D1. at about 25mph shift to D2. (be gentle on the accelerator & don't over rev on each gear. release accelerator pedal & don't step on the brakes while shifting from D1 & D2).

When I started my 2002 Dodge Durango 4.7L and try to put it into 'DRIVE' it got locked up and I couldn't put it into ANY gear. I had someone tell me it may possibly be the gear linkage. HE


Well, if the problem is in the linkage between the trans and the shifter, you should be able to disconnect the linkage or cable and move the shift rod in the transmission by hand.
Make sure the parking brake is set since it won't be in park.

I have a 84 V65 Magna. When I get on the throttle in 1st & 2nd gear, it clunks (like it's skipping). It only happens only in 1st & 2nd gear. What's the problem?


I use to have the same exact bike. Mine did the same thing. My problem was in the transmission. In mime it was the teeth of my first and second gear were damaged. The bike was too old to invest the money to fix it.The person who owned it before me had miss shifted alot.I did it once and that put the icing on the cake.
