SOURCE: how do u replace a shifter cable for a 1988 honda accord lx

remove cable from transmission,follow cable behind engine,along exhaust pipe,then up through floor into center console.along the way you will find retainer clips (on both ends of cable) which hold the cables in place,and also underneath you will find a fastner which holds cable to bottom of floorboards and a panel with a rubber gasket in which the cable goes up into the console through. you must then remove center console to release the other end of cable.Once cable is loose go under car in the middle of the cable and pull out from floor then pull the other end out from engine compartment.

5th gear synchronizer shifter


sound to me like a basic sloppy shifter, did you inspect the shifter and all parts associated?
usually the synco dont stop shifts, only causes grinding
unless, it is shattered. (rare that)
it only matches speeds, so if cracked in half , you can shift by
double shifting , like racers and truckers did for years, "crash boxes"

2003 chevrolet cavalier, manual transmission lost 2nd, 4th and reverse but still has 1st, 3rd and 5th gears.


Sounds like one of the levers inside the transmission is either broken or otherwise disengaged. Remove the shifter to see if you can see any obvious reason.

96 manual honda accord- problems shifting into reverse


Is the tranny just hard to put into reverse? Check with mechanic and see if you need clutch adjusted. Also try pushing down on the shifter to bypass the safety. Most have to be pushed down from the top of the shifter in order to go in to reverse.

1987 honda accord lxi 5 speed


Shop one of your pick and pull yards for a tranny. You will diffenatly have to pull it out to fix the gear,unless it is just in the shifter which won't press the shifter fork in the transmission far enough press the 5th gear into mesh(or into gear).
Sounds more like it might be in the gear shifter. Linkage worn or stretched, or a bushing out of the linkage. Take the plastic console off and look at the action of the shifter if it has alot of freeplay when trying to put it into 5th gear I would say, Get a junk yard shifter.
If you go into transmission It has to be pulled out of car to dissassemble it and it really is a job for a transmission specialist. Get a Junk yard tranny and just replace it. They usually give a gaurantee of some sort with the tranny.
