Question about 1997 Pontiac Sunfire
Transmission is stuck in one gear. shifter won't move left/right at all and forward backward seems like it's not grabing anything. i removed the console and all looks fine. noticed at the transmission under the hood the lever that should move when i move the stick left/right seems stuck. any help is appreciated.
What you can try is to remove the shift cables from the transmission side. then move the shifter and see if everything is free if it's still sticks then the cables are going to be replaced. if everything is moving with the cable off. then you need to remove the shift tower on the tranny (where the shift cable is I belive it's 5 bolts) remove the tower and you will see the shift pin. Inside the tower there is a cotter pin that breaks and that will cause you to have one gear and unable to selected another gear. If you are not mech inclined I would no attemped the shift tower repaire, the cables do it will save you money. The shift tower has bushings that can fall into the tranny.
