I believe that the cable has to be adjusted. Most cases, the cable adjustment is off. Worst case senario, is the bushing in tranny is worn out.

How to adjust the shifting cable on my 2000 dodge intrepid

If its an automatic, which im sure it is. You can adjust the cable by first that the vehicle doesn't have to be running to do this. Find the transmission after raising hood. Should be easy to see. On top of it you'll see a possible L - shaped lever bolted down with what should be your shift cable. Turn the ignition on but dont start. Undo the shift cable from the linkage and by hand turn the linkage down, shifting through all the gears till in low. Reach inside the car and put shifting lever in low. Hook shift cable back to linkage and from inside put in park. That should work

Replace shift lever and now gears are stuck I removed the shifting lever and still stuck, what did I do wrong? please help!!!

I do not know the particular details of Intrepids, but in most modern automatic vehicles there is an electric lockout gate that will not let you pull the lever out of park UNLESS you are stepping on the brake, or in some cars, unless it is turned on. There is a good possibility that you forgot to reattach the cable that powers this gate, in the bottom of the shifter assembly, when you reassembled the shifter lever.

My 2000 Intrepid became very hard to put in and out of gear and now cant move shift lever, is it the shift cable? transmition link will shift fine if cable is disconnected.

It is the shift cable. It is a dealer item, about 70 dollars. Plus there is a new bracket they will sell you to cure the problem.

When going from park to reverse or drive it is hard or going back to park. I have to use a lot of force to get it into the right gear. Also one time it wouldnt go into park. I had it checked out and there...

Hi. this is a common issue with this dodge transmission design. there is an issue concerning the factory shift solenoids that are in the trans pan. First, make sure your tranny fluid is at a proper level, Once you have inspected the tranny fluid and filled to specs, i would next move on to a basic transmission flush and filter change as well.

Once the flush has been initiated, you should notice a deference in the shifting. If the shifting is still hard and not normal after the flush and filter change, this will confirm a more serious issue within the transmission itself. At this point, i recommend dropping the trans and taking a look at the transmission control module. test the module for its operational value and test all shift solenoids as well.

Please rate and god bless:)
