Too old to bother repairing whats happening is either the gear linkage need resetting or most likely is the spring loaded ball bearing that locks into the indent in the selector rod has worn out .Either way a 1985 vehicle isnt worth the hassle of a repair although parts will still be available but this will necitate removing the gearbox to repair and then stripping it completely apart

SOURCE: wont shift out of reverse,but the shifter moves up and down freel

your linkage on the transmission must be off. try having someone move the shifter while you watch the linkage arms under the car on the trans to make sure its all intact. it could be a loose or broken bolt on the trans causing it to not disengage from reverse this will cause it to not start.

Is the crank shaft pulley on a renault 1.5 megane left/ or right hand thread


They'd be right hand threads-regular threads-to loosen, turn counter clockwise. An air impact wrench is best for removing the crank bolt. Or a long breaker bar and socket on the bolt, if you can hold the crankshaft stable so it doesn't turn backward with pressure on the bolt. You can pull the starter off, and wedge a big screwdriver or prybar against the flywheel's ring gear teeth, then turn the bolt with the breaker bar.

Gear shift is stuck in reverse. I parked my car, and removed the key while it was still in reverse ... now I can't start the car or get it out of reverse.


look on the ****** there is a little arm switch that you can click all the way down to put the vehicle in park. you may need a new shifter cable and/or the clips to hold it in place. also look in the steering column to ensure the cable is still in place Car category to stay in line with the rules here. The Escape and tribute are the same car. Since you do not plan to fix this yourself then I will tell you how to work around this so you can get it to the dealer.This can be dangerous so be careful and use a helper. Set the parking brake firm and remove the steering column shroud components per below instructions. Once you get the shiter cable disconnected from the steering column. Then you can manually shift the transaxle. You pull and push the cable to work through the gears. You will feel it click in every gear. Park will show the most resistance since it is spring loaded. Once you get it in park. Start the car and make sure the steering will turn and not lock up. If it steers fine and starts then have a helper also hold the brakes while running and pull the shifter cable one click to reverse and one click to neutral and then one more to drive. You can now drive it to the dealer for repair. The concern is going to lie in the shifter handle below the steering wheel requiring tools and isassmbly knowledge to repair. But the dealer can fix this for you.If you want the safiest method then that would be a tow truck, but you did not ask of this thus me including an alternate method.

1998 Montero Sport 4x4 V6 transmission with 205,000 miles doesn't shift. Just changed the tranny filter and fluid and it still doesn't shift.


I have never seen a trans with 205,000 miles on it,
& I once owned a trans repair shop

So pull it out & have it rebuilt

Fluid is changed to replace it's ability to
remove heat, no other reason

AMC started as a merger between the Nash and Hudson auto companies. In 1970 they purchased Kaiser's Jeep operations. In 1980 the French automaker Renault joined and then bought majority of the company in 1983. In 1987 Renault sold majority shares to Chrysler. Mitsubishi had prior connections with Chrysler (in 1978 Chrysler sold the Mitsubishi Galant as the Dodge Challenger and the Plymouth Sapporo). Up to 1971 they used Borg-Warner transmissions. From 1972-1987 they used Chrysler transmissions. So it is very possible that it has a Mitsubishi system.

why are you guys telling him to check his shift cable when this vehicle uses a hydraulic clutch? it's likely 1) hydraulics are leaking or 2) bad synchros. try replacing the hydraulics and clutch first. if that doesn't work out, you may need your ****** rebuilt.

Radio problem, keeps beeping and saying code.


On the controls on the steering wheel hold the vol + & - for a couple of seconds and this should bring up the 0000 on screen and then its a case of spinning the wheel control on the side and holding + & - to set it.
