Having a broken axle shaft will let the diff spin freely, allowing the transmission to spin with no resistance. Resistance/pressure is what causes your transmission to shift. No resistance/pressure means no shifting.

hi from what your symptoms describe ? it may well be as simple as the actual link at the gearbox underneath where cable attaches has either come loose / the clevis pin has come out/ or cable outer sleeve clamp has loosened so instead of inner cable selecting the outer cable sleeve is moving back//forth or the obviouse theory you have snapped cable? if any of above? feel sure you can diy repair with a little patience the most important tool in any tool kit! best wishes

more than like have a broken axle shaft, un hook the rear drive shaft and put it in 4wd if it wont move then you know you got a broken axle shaft or spider gears broke in the pumpkin

I doubt they did anymore damage but i`ll bet that the engine was damaged from the training going out such as valve guides and seals and carbon build up on plugs ETC.

I had this same problem with my 1998 SL2 after about 170,000 miles. There is a plastic bushing at the end of the shifter cable that holds the cable to the shifter - it probably broke. Remove the center console inside the car to access the bottom of the shifter. I checked my local Saturn dealer to find the replacement cables (come as a set) are more than $200. So I went to Lowes and bought a beam clamp and a large washer to hold the cable to the shifter. It has been working fine for more than 28,000 miles and cost less than $3
