Loose linkage. Inspection is required to see for sure. Make sure granny fluid is full as well.

Easy fix! Remove boot, take out four screws, shifter pops up, replace bushing! Keep it in neutral before starting.

There is an electronic module called ECT under the dash that controls the transmission ( a small computer), however if you had your vehicle serviced in the recent past the wiring connector (a 3 Pin connector) under the Drivers side (LHD) just before the T/case could have become loose or the wires broken, check this connector out.

There is a plastic ball that is in the shift linkage that also wears and is usually not included in the shift linkage bushing kit. It is attached to a metal piece and is bolted to the shift linkage. This is generally the problem if you already replaced the bushings.

Sometimes the linkage is out of adjustment but I would make sure that the ball is not worn first. They generally cost $5.00 - $8.00 or so.

If you need to adjust the linkage you can try the following, but if the bushings or the ball is worn adjustment will not do any good.

There is an adjustment on the shift rod that goes from the shifter to the transmission. It is a rod slipped into a tube with a locking collar or clamp.

The way that I do this is to make sure that your vehicle is in 1st gear and then loosen the bolt on the clamp.

Make sure that the clamp is loose enough so that the shaft can slip in the tube. Put the shifter in the 1st gear position and then tighten the clamp.

You may need to fiddle with this a little to get it in just the right spot.

This is much easier if you have an assistant.

First check the AFT. If it is dark brown and smells burned, you likely need a rebuild. But you can try changing it 2 or 3 times. You can't just change it once because the majority stays in the torque converter.
Other causes of bad shifting can be a ruptured diaphram in the vacuum modular, if it has one. To check, pull off small vacuum hose to round vacuum modulator near pan. If any ATF comes out, replace vacuum modulator.
The throttle linkage or kick down adjustment can also have effect, if it has them. For example, it may have a kickdown switch under the gas pedal, and if it sticks, it will prevent high gear.

There are really only 2 possibilities which are within your reach

- low trans fluid level, check that with engine idling
- poorly adjusted shift linkage, see p69 here

If anything else has failed, like a shift solenoid, it's really a job for a specialist.

Usually reverse does not have synchroniser , so it's normal if the first gear is going in ok.
If you have problem to shift into first gear , then it might be a problem with clutch or clutch hydraulics.

88 Toyota Pickup, has become difficult to shift in to gear. Once in gear (1,2,3,or4th) very smooth. I believe must be something up front in the clutch linkage. Possibly? Can get into, but takes awful...


if your linkage was bent it wouldnt shift into all gears easily.sounds like you need to blead your slave cylinder to your clutch.10mm wrench and bleed it like your brakes same type set up.

They had a problem with this plastic washer that is in the shifter tower it sits just under the shifter it self and gets worn out and causes this to happen- hope that helps.

you have a linkage problem its either where the shifter is in the floor there is a ball there that wears out and causes this. or its loose at the transmission just pop the hood and visually inspect the transmission and the shifter linkages see if any are not connected. if its connected and tight on the trans then you know you need a new shifter in the car. they are not hard to replace.
