Truck won't shift into gear


Oh, boy - this could be pricey!! Either the shift linkage came apart or the Transmission went bad. Find the shift linkage rod coming through the firewall and follow it to the transmission. Check for connection to the trans and if the grommets are good. If both are good, then you'll need to get it to a transmission shop to be investigated. If no Linkage rod, then your trans is 'wired' meaning it is electronically controlled, and the shift solenoid ( or other component)is bad or has a bad connection. If this is the case, locate the shift solenoid on the side of the trans and inspect the wires - if any are burnt or lumpy, that would be bad and need replacement.
Hope this helps!!

My 1992 Toyota Camry won't shift into gear after I changed out the clutch, how do you synchronize the gear shift with the transmission?


First, are you certain that you installed the clutch and throw-out bearing correctly? This may take some trial and error - if you replaced the clutch, you know your way around the transmission. The shifter should have two rods/levers going to two attaching points on the transmission. Disconnect these linkage rods from the transmission. Manually move the connecting points and test by "bumping" the starter until you're sure the transmission is in Neutral. Verify that the stick shift in in the Neutral position, and re-connect the linkage rods. If all goes well, you should now be able to move the shifter through the gears. Good luck

Shift Linkage for 1991 Mercury is loose


Your shifter bushings are worn out. Very easy fix. You can get shifter bushings from NAPA for about $2 ea, you need 4 of them. Drive the car onto ramps. Under the car there is a long rod that connects the shifter to the transmission. Unbolt the part connected to the shifter, remove old bushings (if they are still there), install new. Same for the where the shift rod connects to the transmission. 30 minute job, and it will shift great...Chris

Ford escord zx2 5 speed manual trans linkage layout


My wife's 5 speed manual ZX2 has had shifting problems but they are somewhat intermittant. I think it may be the bushings on the shifter rod one pair at the bottom of the shift lever and one where it connects to the transmission shift rod.
I can see a good deal of slack motion at the transmission end of the rod by looking at it under the hood with a flashlight while she wiggles the shift lever a bit.

My 2001 Dodge Caravan's transmission is stuck in reverse.


Things haven't changed much...look on top of the transmission in the engine compartment and look at the shifting linkage. Look for anything that could be interfering with the shifting. One linkage is the cable to the Shift Lever and Rod that goes down into the transmission. Remove the cable adjustment screw.
Move the shift lever rod towards the front of the Van into the Park Indent Position. Place the Driver's Position (Dash) Shift Lever into Park and then reconnect the Cable to the Shift Lever and tighten down the cable adjustment screw to 70 in-lbs.
Check operation's

My shift bar was on the ground


Starting from inside the car, you have the shift level. This is whatallows you to change gears. This goes through the floor and connects to a shift quadrant. Linkage then runs from the shift quadrant to the transmission by means of shift linkage.

The linkage usually has while plastic balls that help connect the linkage to the top or side of the transmission.

I wonder what source you are using to research these items?
