Ok, Disconnect it from the Tranny First. This will make it easier to Fish Through. Connect the New Cable on the Tranny. Follow where the Old one Goes with the New one, Removing the Old one as you go. It will enter the Cab and work it's way up to the Sterring Column. You will Need to remove the Dash Panel to Access the Cable on the Shifter, It just Pulls Loose. You are at the Hardest Part of this at this Point. Let me know if you cannot access the Shifter From this Point. Please Rate My Response! Thanks!

    I have the problem of my truck not going into park. After looking underneath, I realized the plastic casing around the shifting cable may be cracked where it connects to the metal bracket. I wonder if I still have to replace the whole cable, or can I just replace the casing. For mookonski, I could only start it in neutral also, until I found this problem. If I get under the truck and flip the gear forward into park (seems easy to flip, just like a switch with the cable loose) everything runs fine until I stop again, then have to go down under to switch it back to park again, so it is just sitting now till I can get it fixed.

Shifter cables are easy to replace you just need to make sure that you are doing it correctly so do one end at a time. It sounds to me like it got really tight and snapped

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.

Ok, here is what you do, slide under vehicle, locate shift lever on side of transmission rotate counter-clockwise two clicks, pop shifter on, hop back inside turn key on depress brake pedal and check shifter, if it falls off again replace cable assembly they do not sell individual bushings, and get cable from dealer.

Sounds like you have a broken or disconnected shift cable.There are two cable attaching at different angles.Either disconnected at trans or below shifter.

The shifter moves freely in the gear box like some linkage broke


If both cable ends are attached then the cable broke. Replace it.
