need more info i had a 1984 chevy half ton and first, second, and third worked fine but lock up didnt work. the problem was there was no vacum at a switch under the hood on the fire wall also your shift linkage could be out of adjustment. try driving down the road and raise up a little on the shifter.

I have a 74 El Camino, it used to take a few seconds to reverse after being put into gear. Now it will not move in any gear.


Have you checked the transmission fluid level? If still full but dirty brown color, the transmission is probably toast. The discoloration is from worn gears and clutch packs. Try to find a replacement.

How do i replace the dashboard light bulb for a 1985 el camino


you need to disconnect the speedometer then remove the 6 or 8 screws that hold the instrument panel to the dash.if its an automatic you will have to unhook the shift indicator cable from the shift colume.then pull the instrument panel out of the dash,turn the panel upside down and you will see the bulb sockets.replace all the bulbs at this time so you won`t have to do this again for another bulb.when hooking up the shift indicator cable make sure it indicates the properly selected gear when moving the shifter to each gear position.

92 chevy s10 4x4 4.3L manual transmission no 3rd gear


Hi:

Your transmission has 3 shift rails...
1st - 2nd
3rd -4th
5th- Reverse

If your 3rd gear doesn't work , you have an internal transmission problem, such as a syncronizer, or similar fail... There is not much you can fix, without removeing the transmission.

Shift indicator cable


I just fix the same problem on my 83 el camino today. The indicator is just a plastic pin connected to a wire and uses a small spring to return to park. I took out the dash board pannel in front of the gauges. There are two 7mm screws under the indicator, remove those. Drop indicator down, check to see if the plastic hoop the wire connects to has broken off. If so I connected my wire to the hook on the return spring, every thing works fine now. I had to fix this to get it threw Maryland inspection.

Trans. problem


3speed or 4 speed? does it slip or just not shift. Might be old seals or a bad governor. Try using lubegard trans additive. Try that for a week if it doesn't work, replace the governor valve.
