SOURCE: 1998 pontiac transport 3.4 auto leaking trans fluid

It sounds like the Transmission line has a leak. Check the transmission line from the transmission to the radiator. You have two steel lines which runs to and from the transmission to the transmission cooler in the radiator. The line could be corroded and may need to be replaced, good luck and service the transmission too. The transmission on the transport are know to have problems when ran low on fluid or dirty transmission filter.
Good luck and hope this helps.

SOURCE: Problem with my Vs commodore

panhard rod. go to the wreckers and get one from another vs. shouldnt cost u more than $20. as for the wishbone a wheel alignment will give you an indication if this is bent. if it is a minor one a realinment may fixit otherwise once again visit the wreckers and get one. dont forget to take some coil spring compressors ( you can hire them if you dont own or want to buy any). shouldnt take you more than a half a day.

you say wishbone, which is in the front, so if it is just a trailing arm, dont need the compressors just take a few spanners n sockets out, get the right sizes and hed to the wreckers. You should get them parts for under $50. half a day and half a slab of beer with a mate and you should be on your way again, after sobering up of course :)

SOURCE: 5 spd manual trans, shifter doesn't have enough

Check the busings on BOTH ends of the shifter cables. First check underneath the center console that your bushing didn't break and cause your shifter to be limp and not move anywhere. This is a very common problem and can be remedied permanently by getting the delrin bushing found on ebay.

Next, if the above is fine, check the clips on the shifter side under the hood. There are 4 clips. Two hold the cable ends to the tower and slide horizontally. The other two hold the cables onto the transmission and slide on vertically. Sometimes these clips fall off and makes the shifter inoperable.

Finally if all of the above checks out the last possibility is that your shifter tower metal tab that the shifter cables attaches to is broken and sliding instead of pushing or pulling. This happened to my car but is not likely as my manual was in a raced Saturn previously so wear from that most likely caused it to break.

it that lever does not go to DRIVE,
then there will be no drive.

I have a 1993 Olds 88 that is stuck in neutral. The shifter handle moves too easy, indicator needle moves but its not engaging. I was told it was shifter rod or cable. I took the steering wheel off but...

do not touch the column. the cable is attached to the bottom of the shift lever and on the trans. find out which end is bad and go from there. most likely you will need to replace the cable but ck both ends first.

The shifter cable came loose

The end of the cable on the GM is a molded plastic piece. Part of the cable. If the plastic tab has broken off you really only have two choices.
  1. Replace the entire cable, a tough job.
  2. push the plastic end back on the arm of the trans shifter and use two zip ties in a cross patter to tighten it down. I have seen this work if done right for years.
Hope this helps.

Shifter cable

If this is really a villager, it is a loose shifter. You listed under F150.

There is 1 or 2 torx bolts that loosen up. You need to remove the plastic steering column cover (2 pieces, about 4 screws) kust behind the steering wheel. Then locate the torx bolts and tighten. It is in the center of the photo pointing down. There may be 2 more facing toward the front of the car. Move the shifter and watch what parts move and look for botls attached to it.

Shifter cable broke in 1998 chevy suburban

Ok, Disconnect it from the Tranny First. This will make it easier to Fish Through. Connect the New Cable on the Tranny. Follow where the Old one Goes with the New one, Removing the Old one as you go. It will enter the Cab and work it's way up to the Sterring Column. You will Need to remove the Dash Panel to Access the Cable on the Shifter, It just Pulls Loose. You are at the Hardest Part of this at this Point. Let me know if you cannot access the Shifter From this Point. Please Rate My Response! Thanks!

Repair of a linkage cable - transmission 1990 Pontiac Bonneville

this should be easy remove center console and shifter cover . there are screws around the outside and center holding it in place,you don't have to completly remove to check upper adjustments and cable ends .you will see cable ends if wear or slack is not visible, With cover lifted shift from park to low and back again several times , look for loose ends or adjustments
if no sign of slack or exssesive ware leave cover loose and raise hood now have afriend shift the trans so you can locate cable ends on tranny you might have to slide under car to locate , check for ware (one end or the other will most likly be worn out) If you are wanting to save money you can replace cables your self for a third of a mech.cost it is usually a small plate in floor to loosen unhook both ends at trans. and remove cables pulling in to car,feed new cables in fromfloor out to trans .just make sure cables re hook to same shifter points ,its best to crank and make sure before completly securing console
