Question about 2001 Chrysler PT Cruiser
Shift lever stopped working with or with out clutch
I had the same problem. Started for me as not going into reverse. Here is what you do. Have someone work the shifter while you open the hood and look straight down into the engine bay. You will see a cable that attaches to the top of the transmission. Where it attaches to the transmission the cable is supposed to have a plastic grommet. In time this grommet cracks and falls apart. Therefore the cable no longer engages/disengages the gearbox. You must fashion a new grommet out of a piece of rubber or similar material, make a hole in the middle of it to fit over the shaft of the transmission lever, jam it into the opening at the end of the shifter cable, then use a small cotter key to secure the whole thing into place. Test the shifter, make sure the cotter key will hold, change the size if it will not stay on. Should work, I made this fix about 20,000 miles ago and its not come off since.
