This kind of sounds like you might of broke your shifter interlock. If that is the case you will need a new shift cable.

SOURCE: I'm having trouble moving the shifter

If you're on an incline, that will affect it. Try setting the park brake prior to shifting to park. Also there is a cable/interlok safety system that prevents shifter movement out of park without the brake pedal being depressed, that may need adjustment. Also check under the hood see if the shift selector cable is routed close to the exhaust, it could be melting. And maybe the selector cable needs adjustment.
Good luck with that and let me know if there is anything more I can help with.

SOURCE: The shifter/transmission on my manual 5 spd 1999 Saturn SL1

This just happen to me a few weeks ago. If you take out the center piece in the car you should be able to see that the actual shifter is no longer connected to the rod which goes into the transmission. It is an easy problem to fix, however it is not cheap. I was told that you have to buy a complete new kit($250.00) for the shifter, however my dad gave me a different solution. He took some wire, and made a spider web type thing to keep it connected. On my car it was a small round plastic piece that broke, but I cannot remember what it was actually called. This little piece is not available through Saturn by itself, only through a complete kit. Please ask questions if this is not clear enough. Thanks :)

SOURCE: Need to replace the shifter cable on a 2003 PT Cruiser

Have the EXACT same problem. 2005 Pt Cruiser w about 88,000 miles. Became hard to shift when cold and then bam ....something broke. Moves freely. I know I'm going to get screwed on this... what should it cost to have it fixed. The guy at a shop close by (figured close to make towing easier) started into this 'its a dealer only part and blah blah...at least an hour .... " He's going to send an estimate tomorrow. I'm in E. metro Atlanta

My hyundai accent 1996 has a manual transmission and today it popped out of 4th gear in to neutral about 3 or 4 times as i was driving around town.what needs to be replaced?


forth gear is not a gear as such but a dog that connects the input and out put shafts to make a straight through drive
reasons for jumping out of gear include gear not properly selected __check shifter connections or cable adjustment cable loose at one end not making full engagement of the dog
loose n bell housing bolts or bolts not tension in the correct order
bearing failure on input shaft , out put shaft or spigot bearing between the shafts
if you have had no problems before today, the shifter mechanism and cable is a prime suspect for failure

Put gmc envoy in reverse and went to put in drive and dash says in drive but won't go into any gear


Check fluid level first. After that, many things inside the transmission could be the problem for no forward gear. Try manually shifting it to first or low. Could be the cable popped off the shifter arm on the transmission.

I have an 04 Chevy cavalier. It was driving just fine but last night I went to leave and the gear shift wouldn't go in gear.. It. Just slides back and fourth.


Sounds like the cable broke. Where shifter is, The bezel around the shifter pops off. You can get it high enough to see if it broke the shifter cable mount or not. If it did, you'll have to replace the shifter.
