Gear shift cable broke

Depends on where the cable broke at. The cable is connected at one end to the shifter and the other end to the transmission control arm. You must know what position or detent the transmission control arm is in for each gear inorder to set it correctly when you get a new cable. It has to be on a go to transmission shop..try Amco

My shifter just slides, And my car is stuck in park

I would block the wheels and have someone look at the transmission while moving the shifter to make sure the cable is still connected.
If the cable is connected something inside the transmission is broke.

My speedometer quit working and i replaced it and it still doesnt work \

check the connection that is on the transmission if you have a real cable then check the end to make sure the cable connections are not broke. look at the speedometer then spin the cable with your fingers the speedometer should bounce if not then cable is broke also check the ends usuall the end by the trans gets stripped out. a speed sensor will also make the meter not work if you have that kind of vehical.

Speedometer broke, it's not completely broke, it stalls and bumbs up to speed, but it takes a while to bump up

Sounds like the cable for the speedometer needs to be replaced. If that is good then there is a problem with the gear that drives that cable where it connects to the transmission or the speedometer itself is faulty.

Hi, I have a 1999 Camry LE 4-cylinder automatic. The car is not shifting into gear. I popped the hood up and noticed that the transmission control cable (shifter cable) connection to the neutral saftey...

I think the cable is molded into the little plastic piece. see if you can see the end of the cable. see if it looks like it broke, or was cut. if not, the molding came undone, and the cable pulled from the anchor in the plastic thing.

Speedometer works at start but eventually just stay at 0, very erraticwhat can be the problem

there is a cable that connects from i beleive the transmission to the speedometer (isdtrument cluster) this cable is devised of two parts an inner cable and an outer cable, the inner cable has a square end that connects to the speedometer and could be broke or loose, check both connections on each end of cable. replacement of cable is very cheap but getting to it is somewhat difficult, you have to take out the instrument cluster . if cable looks fine on both ends,not worn,rounded or broke then I would say replace the cluster

Hood latch release inside cable will not realease hood

The cables and latch become dirty and corroded,and the spring wrapped cabbles can even rust on the inside.
The cable itself may have broke.
if you are able you can lay down under the front reach up through the grill and you just have to feel your way take a short screw driver and feel where the cable connects to the latch,use the screwdriver for a lever and pry the latch open.
once it is open have someone pull the release and watch for movement,if it does clean the latch ,spray cable lube into the cable while moving.
then adjust the latch a little,not to much at a time or the hood will be loose.
Of course if there is no movement in the cable it means its broke and will have to be replaced
