Automatic or stick? if it is an automatic the shift sinkage may be bent or obstruckted. if it is a stick the clutch may be getting pretty worn out, the throw out bearing may be going bad or the forks may be bent.

SOURCE: i have a 2004 kia rio 5 speed

there are 2-3 bushings underneath the car that can be changed.....they are about 5-7 dollars each that you can pick up at the dealership and do it yourself...it's not hard at all...drive it on ramps and chock the wheels to make it safe....get underneath and then have someone in the drivers seat to shift the gears(while it's off) so you can see where the moving points are, then just undo the bolts and replace the bushings or you can just remove or loosen the bolts and lubricate them with lots of grease....I would try the grease first, it should do the trick...Kia will charge you about $130 to do it for you...

SOURCE: gear box oil filler plug - kia rio 2004

you have to take off the speedometer cable/wiring harness from the top of the trans and fill it from there....one 10mm bolt...very awkward spot...it might be snug, so just take a flat head screwdriver from underneath to tap it loose...

SOURCE: our 1998 kia sophia wont shift in gear any

sounds like the shift cables are corroded or seized, forcing the shift may have bent the linkage. inspect and replace the shift cables and inspect the cable bracket, bend back into shape if required :)

Kia soul can not put in to park


First of all try to ensure the gear lever is not bent a little.
2nd/. It could be the fork in the shifter lever has bent the change fork which is just inside the gear box, unless you are willing to take the top of gear box shifter control & part top internal of gearbox apart you best take to garage. Best Wishes, Malcolm Campbell.

Why is it hard to shift gears on my 1997 lumina.

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.

Can not shift to reverse/park


Transmission is probably out or on the verge of going out. Or if it is an automatic and the shifter lever itself is hard to move first check transmission and then check gears and components inside steering column.

1997 nissan pickup won't shift. It is stuck in fourth gear


Usually I find one of three problems that cause a manual transmission to be stuck in a single gear. If the gear oil level is low then the shift forks and rails can get dry and bind enough that the rail sticks and won't move. The same low fluid problem can cause the sliding gear to become stuck hard enough on the splined shaft it slides on that it won't move or the shift interlock parts between the shift rails [which prevent two gears from being engaged at once] can break or bind which will also prevent the shift lever from moving. The shift lever and tower [the part the lever is fastened to on top of the transmission] may have to be removed to see if the problem can be fixed from the top or if the problem is internal and the transmission has to be taken apart and repaired. There are other problems that cans cause this such as bad internal bearings, broken or worn shift forks but they are fairly rare if the oil level is maintained and changed occasionally.
