SOURCE: 1998 dodge ram 4x4 transmission problems

You will need to get the transmission rebuilt. With the info that you have provided the direct clutches are welded together. Becareful about getting it rebuilt, most shops see Dodge transmissions and they see dollar signs. You should be able to get it rebuilt for around $800.00 to $1000.00 depending on amount of damaged hard parts. Thanks and good luck with your repair.

SOURCE: 1999 Saturn sl with shifting problems first gear and reverse

Ms Derry ,I would check the pair of shift cables and shifter itself before suspecting internal transmission problems.The cables attach to the shifter then runs to the linkage on the transmission.One cable is responsible for side to side movement as the other is for moving front to back(like 1st to second) Center console removal is fairly simple which requires mounting screw(4) removal on the front sides and in the rear cup holder.This gives you an opportunity to view the shifter and cable operation from above while this movement should also be appreciated at the transmission linkage meaning someone shifts the vehicle as another inspects proper movement at the transmission.If all this is actuating properly,you may need to tear down and inspect transmission but hopefully it can be rectified with external repairs mentioned...good luck

SOURCE: '89 chevy k1500 sloppy steering wheel (HELP PLEASE)

Everyone always gravitates to the suspension but folks, it's 99% sure that it is the EVO. The EVO is the sensor built into the steering column that senses movement of the steering wheel then controls the power steering pump accordingly. When it goes out (which is all too frequently) you get sloppy and loose steering at lower speeds and it does tighten up a bit on the highway at higher speeds. This is the way it is supposed to work but when it fails it's downright scary trying to keep the truck straight on a narrow two lane road!

The rod that goes to the box is loose or not inline how it should be, so when your moving gears in the car its not quite going in at the box right, could be engine mount broken or just really loose or at the selector end loose

Peugeot 307 HDi gearbox sticking


Hi
Have a good look at the parts the selector cables actually attach to. The nylon washers surrounding the ball joints wear away leaving a loose feel to gear changing or complete loss of movement. The selector rods can fail too but I've found usually it's just the rubber or nylon washers wearing out leaving very loose movement, sometimes even jamming when the metal parts crunch together. Look under bonnet and get somebody to wiggle the gear stick as you look at where the cables attach to the selector rods and check for loose play at all the components.
Replacement Nylon washer kits are easy to get hold of.
Good luck.

What is the first thing to check when a 89 chevy 4x4 aotu. C1500 wont move when shifted.


Check the end of the shifter cable located on the driver side of the transmission underneath the truck. They are common for breaking allowing you to start the truck but not go anywhere when you move the gear selector.

89 ford festiva l wont go into 5th gear how do i fix it


88 - 89 festiva "L" models came with a 4 speed. Unless it has been swapped with a 5 speed from an 88 - 89 "LX" or a 90 - 93 festiva 4 gears is all you have. Everything you ever wanted to know about your festiva can be found a fordfestiva.com. I've seen 8 festivas with 500,000 miles now. They are bullet proof and big time fun. Easy to work on too. And most owners are really down to earth because we don't care what people think of us. Festivas are also easy and cheap to make very fast. Get on the forum. We will welcome you!

'89 dodge dakota manual transmission A535 will not shift out of 4th gear. the stick will move around and even go into other slots but gear stays locked in 4th. what's wrong


Most likely solution is the gear selector fork in the transmission has broken and is no longer engaging the gears.

Repair requires transmission removal and partial overhaul.
