Sounds like a shift linkage issue. Some components thereof may be sticking from lack of lubrication, or worn out.

The linkage came loose from the shifter to the transmission, I suspect. That should be an easy, or cheap fix.

Shifter jumped out of gear. Now why won't it go into any gear?

If you are refering to a manual transmission, have a look at the shifter cable(s). One may be broken or disconnected

Gear Stiff On 1995 Chevy Lumina

I think this is an actual cable which hangs up in cold weather..find the cable ends under the hood near both the transmission and the steering column end.. each end should have a rubber cover on it..take a can of wd40 spray lube put the little red tube into the spray nozzle of the can.. insert the end of the red tube under the rubber boot and spray a few seconds worth of this into the booth coating it really well...then without starting the car(turn the key to the run position to unlock the system) slowly work the shifter up and down between gears and you should feel it work easier as you move it up and this each time it becomes harder to work the shifter..also do the base of the column where it comes to the outside of the car body..road dirt and grit build up here and cause stifness also..

2001 chey blazer 2dr 2wd man rides rough drive only on paved roads feels every bumo tough ride had shocks checked they said good bilstein just got this vehicle what would help if anything someone...

I would check your tire pressure, if your running 60 psi it's going to be a bumpy ride, lower the air pressure to 35 psi and see if it makes a differance, does the truck move up and down when you jump on the bumpers or is it stiff ?

The back speaker rattle occasionally. It is worse when on bumpy roads. It rattles loadly when moving shift lever. I checked speakers and connections and they are ok.

if your speaker makes noise when moving the shifter, the you have a speaker wire somewhere thats touching the metal on your truck. I would say do a visual inspection of the wire, probably somewhere under your sterring column, if you can get to it. its probably got a bare spot where the insulation got worn away. or, if its easier for you, just run a new wire from your stereo to that speaker. wither way should fix your problem.
