Hi: on left side on transmission the shifting cable has probably come off. With vehicle turned off, park brake on.. crawl under and re install cable to shifter.... that the only thing it can be given your problem. There is nothing to adjust...

Need to have the Transmission Linkage Adjusted underneath. You may have hit something that knocked it out.

97 Jimmy shuts off when shifting from park to drive


Could be your neutral-safety switch.

My 98 gmc jimmy will not shift out of park


possibly the neutral safety switch connected to the brake pedal is bad. when you apply foot to brake , shouls hear a click with key in run position, this would be the safety solenoid retracting itself from shift linkage, allowing shift lever to move. try pumping rapidly, but easily the brake pedal to see if you can hear click, and or shift from park.

How do you adjust the shift cable on a 1995 gmc jimmy, wont go into reverse or park.


On the 1995 Jimmy, the shift cable can come loose on the mount on the side of the transmission where the cable meets the trans. When it slips, the alignment goes off and causes the driver to not be able to put the trans into park. If you take a long stick you can push the shift arm on the trans to the park position and your trans will go into park.....what you (and I) really need to know is how to take the shift cable mount apart and reset it.

My gmc jimmy gets stuck in park sometimes and to get it out I have to sit there and miss with it for a while does anyone know what the problem might be?


The gear selector lock may be hanging up or an interment electrical problem. The gear selector lock is so you can't pull it out of park without the key in the run position and your foot on the brake acts as a safety device so you don't accidently pull shifter out of park or kids playing and pull it out of park and also helps for anti-theft device. The proper name for this is SHIFT INTERLOCK SYSTEM. There is no common problems with this system but I have replaced a couple solenoids but not all on GMC's the other item I would think would be more common is the brake switch for this system.

97 Jimmy is having vacuum problems


No. A 97 Jimmy doesn't have points either. Only way that works if it's not original motor.

Transmission problem


Sounds like an issue when fluid gets hot, I'd start with a filter/fluid change.

I personally shy away from tranny additives, use only as a last resort to get a vehicle drivable to trade in (on a cash for clunkers program. (((SMILE))). )

97 jimmy cannot shift out of park


check all your fuses because if your brake light fuse pops then it will not disengage the shift also it could be your brake light switch so check those
