Well if it broke off,but there is still a little left u could just take a hammer and a pin and pound the little part of the pin thats in there out so it will at least fit on the shifter on the top of the transmission.or u could go to a junkyard and buy one,they only sell them for 20.00

A pin fell onto my foot from the steering colum while I was driving my Ford 150 truck, 4.6 liter. I can't figure where it goes, the shifter is now slopy and closer and even touches the dash when putting it...

looks like the shift lever pivot pin. Your description indicates that you are currently using the shift lever slot (the hole which the shift lever passes through) to actuate your gear selection. The fact it fell out, suggests it was originally installed upside down (wide end towards floor). May have to remove the cowling from around the steering column to find the proper location for the pin.

Gear shift feels like a pin fell out. Seems to be flopping around. Won't engage in any gear.

Look at the tube the shifter goes into, is there a pin in a hole there? If not find it and reinstall the pin that retains the shift arm to the steering column barrel.

Shifter will not go into Park to Start Vehicle. I have to put into neutral to start. A little pin with threads fell onto my foot when this problem started.Where did this threaded pin come from?

I would say it came from the neutral safety switch. They used to be on the side of the transmission but now most are located at the bottom of the steering column. You'll probably have to get it replaced. Hope this helps.

What causes the gear shifter to feel like there is no gears at all I can move the shifter all around no gears to be found

There is a bushing held in by a pin which attatches to a cable lingage. The cable and linkage fell apart . Its mainly a plastic bushing that came out cansmo_171.gifcansmo_172.gif

I recently replaced the manual transmission on my 1991 Geo Tracker. A small pin fell out of the shifter box when we turned the transmission on its side. Now the car won't go into 1st 3rd or 5th. What is...

This pin actually goes into the bottom of the shifter and allows it to push and pull the transmission into these gears. You will have to break down the shift box to get this pin back in. I can't find any diagrams online, but, if you go to advance or auto zone they can let you look in a manual.

Shifter button fell out

Look under the grip. There should be either a pin or a set screw. Remove the pin/set screw and pull the shift lever up. The installation is the opposite. Good luck.

Shifter very loose wont stuck in gear i left it in (sunfire)

see if there is a shear pin that goes thrrough the connection. A shear pi is used to prevent evxcessive forcing and is supposed to break under conditions you described.. It is easily replaced with a new oin and light hammer. Good luck.
