Saturn SW1 will not shift into 2nd, 4th, or reverse

My 1996 Saturn SW1 will not shift into 2nd, 3rd, or reverse, however it will shift into 1st, 3rd, and 5th. I am wondering where the cable attaches to the gear box, so I can reattach it. Any help would be great. Thanks.

sounds like a stretched gear shift cable or the linkage on the tranny may need some adjusting i would start with the linkage first jack vehicle up and do a visual while some one goes through the gears make sure to use jack stands so that the power wheels are off the ground.....good luck

Saturn no 1st, 2nd, 3rd, or 5th gear


Your shifter cables snapped (more specifically the connectors at the end of the cables, they are made out of nylon). Not good news 1) the cables are not made anymore you will have to find a place that might have some still in stock or go to a junk yard; 2) it requires dropping the ******; if your not able to do this yourself, you are looking at about $600 if you can even find the cables. I know what I'm talking about because mine snapped about 4 years ago and luckily some were still able to be found and I have a 98 Saturn SL. Good Luck!!! - Stu

I have a saturn sl2 with a 5 speed transmission. i was driving and heard a ping and now 2nd 4th and reverse are gone but i still have 1st 3rd and 5th. i have no idea where to start fixing the problem


If you have inspected the shift linkage and found no missing or loose parts, then unfortunately an internal shift mode fork, syncro assembly,shift rail or possibly a snap ring has been damaged. This is not an easy fix on any vehicle and will require transmission removal to diagnose. Before the trans is removed, inspect the shift linkage while someone moves the gear selector to all gears. This would be the best case scenario, internal damage, of course, would be the worst.

I have a 96 sl1. I only have 1st,3rd and 5th gear. If I try 2nd 4th and Reverse, it's like they aren't even there. Is it my linkage cable? And should I get a new transmission?


This does sound more like a bad cable. You'll need to find the shift tower on the transmission and have someone move the shift so you can see if it moves when trying to put it in the bottom gears.

It shifts into 3rd and 4th.But the stick is all over the place and loose.It won't go over to 1st,2nd,5th or reverse.


Howie I would go to a parts store or ebay and get a saturn shifter bushing repair kit. They cost about
20 bucks. If you can get the console out, then you can do this repair. If you have high speed access take a search on www.youtube.com for saturn shifter and i am sure there are videos of folks pulling the console and doing the bushing swap.

I have a maunal transmition and can't get it to shift into 5th or reverse. The gear shifter seems to have completly shifted to the right. Where 3rd gear used to be, in now where 1st geaar is, thus..there...


Your linkage, which is located on the top side of your transmission has probably shifted, or the bushing that holds it in place probably broke..
