Sounds like the shifter cable,if it is and automatic trans. has broken. look at the trans selector under the truck and see if it moves when you select different gears.If it doesn't its the cable

1991 Ford F150 won't shift into park or reverse. Will go into neutral and drive, and the linkage at the transmission moves ok


The linkage may be out of adjustment preventing the shifter from moving into reverse or park.
One way to test this is to disconnect the linkage and manually move the lever on the transmision making sure that it can be set into park. Also try moving the lever counting each click from park to low gear to make sure it is clicking into each gear. If this works then the linkage is probably out of adjustment.
On the link cable there is typically a bolt in an oval shaped metal near the transmission shift lever.
1)Detach the shift cable from the transmission shift lever
2)Put the transmision shift lever in the park position, and also the shifter in the cab
3)Loosen the adjustment bolt
4)Reattach the cable to the lever
5)Tighten the adjustment bolt in place
6)Confirm that you can shift through all of the gears
Hope this helps

1993 honda accord started off not shifting into park then not into park or reverse or neutral and now just drive. Is that a shifter linkage issue? Can the cable simply be changed out to correct the...


the first thing to do is check the linkage by having someone shift the gears while you look at the cable on the transmission. if the cable moves at the gear selector and at the transmission then the problem is not linkage. it could be your TCM is not turning the shift solenoids on to apply the correct gear in the transmission.

The gear shift lever(on the automatic transmission) won't shift the truck into gear how do i fix it


If the lever is moving very easy and doesn't have the normal clicking feel, then most likely, part of the linkage has become disconnected. It will all be on the drivers side, so crawl under the truck and have someone shift the linkage with the truck OFF and you should spot the fault. If all seems normal and you see the lever moving on the transmission, then either the trans is bad, or simply too low on fluid to operate OR has a completely plugged filter...

If your problem is that you can't move the shift lever, some require that you put your foot on the brake before the shift lever is unlocked. It is either cable or electrically locked. If that is the case, you can bypass the lockout by removing the steering column cover and pu;;ing the cable or solenoid. I don't remember the exact procedure, but as I recall, it is relatively simple to do.

Automatic shift lever won't shift the truck into gear we can shift it manually underneath the truck into gear but the lever isn't shifting the linkage


the linkage has slipped and is not in the notch on the shift lever so slide he shift lever into place then tighten the bolt down so it will hold the shifter on the trasnmisson, this is caused by a loose nut on the shifter nut.

Possible tranmission slippage??


yes this is a defective trans, u either have a worn out direct clutch or a hydraulic leak inside the trans, u can try changing the fluid and filter it may help, if not you will need to replace the trans.
