I'm looking at purchasing a 96 chevy c10. It has the 5.7L vortec with manual 5spd transmission. While test driving the transmission grinds in 2nd gear everytime you shift gears. All other gears shift...


The synchronizers are bad. Costs about $200. But I check and replace bearings. Also check gears. About a $1500 job. You pull the transmission. I pull, $2500. I replace the master and slave also.

2000 Firebird - Gear shift button broken- can't shift - A/T


You could remove the handle and pull on the plastic rod, or disassemble the console to access the shift lock.
You may need a shop manual for repair info.

I have a 2002 excursion, The gear selector goes into park, but the vehicle continues to roll. It will also only start in neutral.


Its gear shift issues.

The shifter needs to be inspected. The shifter assembly is got misaligned, it has to be open and realign.


There are many other possibilities. But if it was working right up till now and suddenly this occurred then its shifter assembly alignment issue.


Also i suggest you to refer these gear shift issues, which are mostly noticed. These are direct links with appropriate solutions to the specific problems of gear ****.

My automatic transmission in my 1995 20 series van wont shift into 1st gear unless I pull it in manually, what would cause this ?


Sometimes it is a faulty solenoid inside the transmission.
It could also be a problem with the valve body.
A transmission shop should be able to give you some suggestions.

My 1993 Gmc Sierra 2500 automatic first gear shifts hard also from park to drive others gears are smooth i have overdrive


The gear shift lever indicators tell you what gear you have an automatic transmission in on your vehicle. The shift solenoid tells the transmission when to shift gears and what gear to shift into. Newer model automatic transmissions have electronic shift solenoids that are activated and change gears based on the speed the vehicle is traveling. Troubleshooting either one of these transmission components is relatively easy if you know a little about automobile mechanics. With the right tools, you can determine whether the transmission shift solenoid is having a problem. Gear shift indicator problems can be determined simply by moving the gears into their designated position.
Transmission Shift Solenoid
  • 1 Raise each corner of the vehicle up with the car jack and place jack stands under the frame. Make sure the car is raised high enough so you can work under the car freely.
  • 2 Slide the drain pan under the transmission fluid drain plug. Remove the drain plug with a ratchet and socket, and let all the fluid drain out of the transmission. Remove the transmission pan bolts with a ratchet and socket. Pull the pan away from the bottom of the transmission, revealing the transmission shift solenoid.
  • 3 Wipe off the shift solenoid with a shop towel. Disconnect one of the two plugs that attaches to the shift solenoid. Turn the knob on the volt meter to the ohms setting, so resistance can be measured. Set the volt meter on 200.
  • 4 Take the black lead of the volt meter and touch the negative battery terminal wire. Take the red lead of volt meter and slide the tip into the terminal plug you just disconnected from the shift solenoid. Look at the reading you get on the digital display of your volt meter. Determine if the reading is between 12 and 25. Readings below 12 or above 25 tell you that the shift solenoid is not working. Reattach the plug to the shift solenoid and pull the second plug attached to the solenoid. Perform the same procedures on this plug wire. Replace the transmission shift solenoid after determining it is bad.
Gear Shift Indicator
  • 1 Move the gear shift into the desired gear. Look at the gear labels and the arrow, or other indicator, to see if the gear shift indicator lines up with the selected gear.
  • 2 Move the gear lever to another gear and look to see if the indicator lines up with the selected gear. Misalignment of the arrow will tell you if there is a problem. Moving the gear shift to "neutral" but having the indicator show the transmission is in "drive" tells you the gear shift indicator is not working properly.
  • 3 Try each gear position to determine how much misalignment is in the indicator. Slide under the car and check for a loose gear shift cable. Check all the gear shift cable connections to ensure they are all tight and are not missing. Tighten any loose gear shift cable clamps or bolts. Replace the gear shift cable if you find that this is causing the misalignment with the gear shift indicator.

Gear stick will not move from park !


Make sure you car is actually in PARK, Easy to do, Just disengage the parking brake (emergency brake) and attempt to push your car both forward and reverse to ensure your car isnt in neutral. If you cant budge the vehicle your good to go! If it rolls forward it may be in neutral or a forward gear. if it rolls backwards it may be in neutral or reverse. If it rolls both directions its in neutral. On that note if it moves at all skip to the third step (***) and make sure the transmissions shift bracket is in the park possition. Depending on your cars transmission model the parking gear is located all the way left to the farthest possition or all the way right to the farthest possition) One direction will put you in Park, the other in will put you in 1st gear, If your in 1st gear the linkage should be too far away from the shift plate to connect if your column says you are in park. DO NOT ATTEMPT TO START YOUR CAR WHILE IT IS IN A DRIVE GEAR AND THE LINKAGE IS DISCONNECTED IF YOU ARE ABLE TO START YOUR CAR IN ITS CURRENT STATE DO NOT MOVE THE TRANSMISSIONS SHIFT BRACKET UNTIL LATER IN THIS INSTRUCTIONAL!!!!!

* Floor shift automatic, the push pin lever (located inside your shifter/gear stick) may be malfunctioning. You have to pop the grip off and inspect the white plastic pin inside the shaft to see if it is damaged, also check inside the grip while you press the safety release (shift lock button) to ensure the internal slide mechanics are propperly working). Also check for anything obstructing the levers movement inside the floor housing.

** Column Shift. Make sure your pull pin lock is working properly (disengages the shift lock when you pull back the gear shift before you select a gear) if its broke theres two possible behaviors you'll experiance -1. You cant pull the gear shift back at all or -2. No effort or less than normal effot is required to pull back the gear shift. If all that checks out then you have to inspect the steering column linkage bar (you may have to remove some of the steering column housing to view it. Make sure the bar isn't bent or that its movement isnt obstructed.

***Automatic Transmission Linkage Check - Look under the kick panel located above the gas and brake pedals.........Once linkage is located under the dash (kick panel) disconnect it and try the gear shift. If the cable moves under the dash then reconnect it and move on to the next step.
Now block the wheels and climb under the car and disconnect the linkage from the transmission and have someone work the gear shift while you see if the cable is operating propperly, if the linkage moves (as it should) then try shifting the transmission back and fourth by hand while the linkage is disconnected., If the shift bracket feels stiff or is dirty clean it off with non corosive chemicals so you dont damage any seals. If the bracket operates smoother go ahead and reconnect the linkage and try shifting with the column again. Be sure to move the shift bracket back to the park position and make sure your shifter column is in park as well before you reconnect the linkage, if you dont you are sure to run into more issues.

Hope this helps you out! If all the mentioned area's above are in working order then your problem is with the car's transmission and you should take it to a speciallist.

Manual transmission is hard to shift into gears, when car is not running it shifts between gears smoothly, when it is running you have to push or pull extremely hard to force into gears


It sounds like your clutch may not be releasing full. Does it shift easily if you match the speed of the engine and transmission shaft closely? Does the clutch feel normal?
