Chevy cavalier gear shifter


if it is s manual box remove the gear lever tower from the top of the box and see what damage was done to the bottom of lever and/or lever pivot pin in the tower. Remember normal gear boxes require a gentle shift to allow the syncro rings to work properly and if you want to do racing changes get yourself a specially built box.

I have a 1999 Chrysler 300M. Simultaneously, the Check Engine light came on, the speedometer stopped working, and the car doesn't shift out of 2nd gear. What's the likely problem?


these vehicles have alot of problems with the tcm( tranmission control module) internal failures of trans speed sensors. your car is currently in "limp in mode" to protect your trasmission!!!

99 300m wont shift out of 2nd gear and speedometer does not work,,i get codes p1696 and p1698 ,put new speed sensor in still doesn't work,any suggestions,,or how do you reset tcm


You need a reader that can cancel the trasnmission codes. Look to Advance or one of those parts places. Call to ask them if their ODB tool can cancel Transmission codes first before you go there.

Sounds like you have lost a shaft(sungear) in the transmission. It can be repaired, but you can get a used one for less than half the cost. Repair-$1300.00+, used - around $500.00

Kicks really hard when shifting from park to drive... but not from park to reverse, neut., 1st, 2nd, or 3rd. speedometer won't work. won't shift outta low gear, just revs up like it's in neutral.


sounds to me like the vss (vehicle speed sensor) isnt working...its on the passanger side of the car on the top of the transmission..(just above where the right side axle is installed) youll see a 2 wire connector...sometimes they come unlpugged and when that happens no speedometer=no shifting because it doesnt know that its in motion,therefore doesnt know when or too shift..,
