When I put my gear into Reverse, Netrual and Drive the gear is getting stiff to move. Why is this happening?

If you mean the shifter is getting hard to move, its probably the shift linkage sticking, try a couple squirts of pblaster or other penetrating oil. If the motion of the vehicle is getting hard to drive in reverse and drive the torque converter may be the issue.

Has Coke or anything that goes sticky been spit around gear shift? I have had this before & had to pull console apart & clean with spray & wipe.

My 96 Cadillac Deville is having transmission problems. It starts out fine, but when it shifts from 2nd to 3rd it suddenly goes into netrual. I can put it in 3 and keep going. What can I do?

Transmission repair show would be my suggestion. This sounds like the manual shift valve has a mind of its own as well as the ECU thats running your transmission.

Trans. won't shift up to 3rd and over drive

hello, check modulator valve, its on the side of transmissiom towards the back on passenger side, also check and see if your air line is hooked up to the modulator valve, lots of times if air line is not hooked up, it will not shift, or it will shift real hard, have to run motor at high rpm to get to shift, its almost like you put in a shift kit, thats bad on tranny, and check your linkage,. loosen linkage. put truck in netraual, and transmission in netrual also. tighten the bolt, check and see if you have all gears, if not, modulator may be bad or tranny

Shifts into netrual while driving

well if it is a manual transmission witch it sounds like to me it must be then it is either your cincronizers or your shift forks are wore out.
