SOURCE: 89' Chevy Silverado Truck- All gears work but REVERSE

Check the linkage at the transmission. Have somebody move the selector while you watch the linkage move. It might be out of adjustment for reverse, or be binding up.

The neddle is attached to the column via a thin metal wire and spring which then clips to the edge. Remove the trim above the column and look for the clip attached to the wire and a warn spot on the column and reattach it. :)

The shifter cable on our 1998 chevy k1500 4x4 broke and we bought a new one and installed it but it still wont shift correctly. can you help me?


Does it go into drive fine and then shifts funny then i would be looking to replace the shift selenoids instead of the cable. They are easy to fix. Drop the trans pan and they are right there. They are not expensive. Change the filter while you are at it also. This may fix your problem. If you are talking about shifting it into gear then your problem may be in the colum. Disconect the cable and try shifting it to see if it is stiff.
