2001 pontiac Aztck wont go into gear

The problem with mine was the gear shifter lock solenoid was broke. Inside the cup holder (the one closest to seats) is a slide door about a !/2" wide by 2" long. slide that up and inside you will see a white disc. With a tool that can reach it, pull it towards the passenger seat and it will allow you to push the gear shifter button in to shift. This is a temporary fix and will have to be repeated each time you want to put car in gear.

My car wont shift out of 2nd gear.the shifting handle is sloppy and the clutch is working fine

if the clutch really is working, (lever at bell moves 3/4")
by fine, my guess, is you can take off from dead stop in2nd, right>?
then its a bad shifter. tip.
or linkage (end tranny extension housing)
or transmission actual core.(shift rails, or forks) or worse.
you do know ,that you can disconnect the linkage and test tranny.
by hand,
key off
leakage off
shift to neutral (read the FSM or for how. under M/T sections.
then key on start engine,clutch depressed, the lift pedel
car moves its stuck in 2nd, of not bad linkage.
can do all gears that way, use 2 people and do not stand infront of car doing test.
or put the front wheels up on stands. but do not get near them.
while engine is running.
btw some shifters have plastic parts that go bad in the shifter tip.

or ,
jack up car in front, can you now shift car in to neutral or any gear?
linkage tests.
remove shifter housing and below see the shifter, H pattern
sifter box mechanism.
see that. you can shift that by hand with any small wrench or
large screwdriver, if the works the parts on the end of the shifter
handle main shaft tip are bad.

Transmission wont go in reverse

the shifter may be disconnected and the housing of the transmission...It feeds to the shifter in the passport, which is hooked up under the center console.. The cable treads into the shifter from under the handle there should also be 2 nuts sitting back to back beside the male part, There should be a male and female to feed into each other once they are hooked up.You should be able to put it in reverse you should feel it go into gear. If that doesn't work then you will need to see a transmission expert.

2000 ford mercury 3.0, shifter wont move. had a fender bender, put it into park and it wouldn't come back out.

For car not changing gears it can be shifter assembly issue, or it can also be transmission issue. Get the shifter assembly inspected with ignition OFF.

For more troubleshooting, I suggest you to get the Following help link checked, its complete step by step procedure to inspect gear shift issues: -----



These will help.

Buick gear shifter moves freely and wont shift gears

you can shift it at transmission by hand to neutral or park and have someone inside start the car and you manually put in gear under hood and drive it to shop or garage, wherever

5 speed Manual Trans is difficult to get into reverse. Once in gear its fine. Seems like the shifter is not lining up.

your shifter may be going bad. you have to push down on the shifter handle to shift it into the reverse gear. unfortunatly things are'nt made like they used to be. the bottom part of you shifter is made partly of plastic. it has 4 plastic balls that rotate around a metal cage that hold those plastic balls into place. you can try this, where the plastic cover on shifter handle is[at the top of plastic cover] use wd40 lubricant with the long red straw inserted into the can. spray the wd40 down inside the cover while rotating shifter handle. not putting it into gear,just rotating it around. just spray a small amount of it. you don't want to drown it,just lube it a little. this will buy you some time to prepare for a replacement. hope this helps and thank you for choosing
