GMC 2005 Envoy shifter stuck in park, car still moving

Sounds like a problem with the shifter linkage. A linkage is basically the mechanical connections (rods, nuts, bolts, swivels, etc.) between two points; one is local and the other is remote. Motion or movement of one results in the same movement of the other. Your shifter is the local point for you and the transmission is the remote. If the linkage is bent, broken or missing parts, the local shifter movement will not be transferred to the remote transmission. A mechanic should be able diagnose and repair this for you pretty easily. Good luck!

How do you tighten gear lever on cortina 1600e thanks

Inspect Linkage between shifter and transmission. Determine where the sloppy looseness is. Replace sloppy linkage parts if transmission lever is not loose. Pray you don't need to have shifter leverage (inside transmission) repaired.

Adjust shift indicator 1999 ford ranger

it does sound like a loose transmission shifter

the shift linkage is directly below your auto transmission shifter. simply place in park, undo the bolt joining the shifter to the transmission, push on the transmission shifter at the other end so it clicks fully into park and tighten the bolt up hard. then check for normal operation.

just remember chances are when your pushing down on the shifter to drive that the direction your pushing at the transmission is reversed so park should be towards the rear of the vehicle and drive is towards the front. but may not always be the case. best bet is to get a mate to move the shifter up and down untill you see exactly what is going on, then adjust your linkage to suit.

Truck will not go in park. Truck parks in reverse, reverses in neutral, goes to neutral in drive and drives in 2nd gear. How do I get it back to right configuration.

I'm assuming the shifter is on the column. The linkage would be between the column and the transmission in the engine compartment.
You should be able to disconnect the linkage at the transmission, put the transmission in park, then check the linkage to see if it is bent or stretched with the shifter in park.

My truck is stuck in reverse how do i get it out

You might first inspect the transmission shifter lever for an obstruction, preventing you from actuating the lever. If none, undo the shifter linkage from the transmission lever and see if you can then, work the shifter lever. If it works ok, you have a problem with the linkage from your shifter.
Hope this helps. Good luck!

2001 Ford E250 transmission has no reverse gear, when placed in reverse, the vehicle drives forward. Is the transmission faulty, or can it be a lesser problem?

I would check the shifter and the linkage. Even though the shifter lever is moving, that doesn't mean it's moving the linkage on the transmission.
