Check gear shift rods (or more commonly, cables) at each end there are rubber bushes that wear out. These need replacing, not a big deal or expensive. They are found at the base of gear shift and around bell housing in engine compartment. Red.

My 96 ford mustang v8 m/t wont shift out of reverse.is my transmission done? it happened before but after a couple min of messing around it popped out and was fine for a month


It could possibly be loose linkage where it connects to the transmission. Block the wheels on the passenger side and jack up the driver side of the car, putting jack stands under the front and back.Using a flashlight or drop light, inspect the linkage for loose connections or bent arms. If nothing found, try to manually move the linkage at the transmission. There is a possibility of bent or broken linkage inside the transmission, but that is an involved repair best suited for a shop.

T700 in my camro wont go into reverse or netraul .Car hasnt been move for about 1 month was fine last time in drove it .It has all forward gears even where park and netraul are any help would good thanks


sounds to me like the shift linkage came loose at the tranny end. On the driverside of the tranny there is a cable hooked the side of the tranny. At the end of the cable there should be a slot that a bolt goes through and attaches to a little arm on the tranny. Loosen the bolt put the gearshifter in park then push that arm as far forward as you can you might have to push hard or pry it forward. Then tighten the bolt down. then try it out and see how it works. You just adjusted your shift linkage. Let me no if that worked or not. Goodluck, Kyle

Wont go into gear I put in reverse and back out of parking spot went to put in drive and nothing there real loose I was able to have someone put it in drive so could get it home


Yhe information you have given is hard to understand but from what you said it sounds like a linkage arm might be off. Go underneath the car and look at the linkage. Check for a rod that is off and if so replace it and use a new cotter pin to keep it there.

It won't switch gears out of park...automatic transmission


Have some one move the shift lever and you watch the linkage under the car to see if the lever is moving on the transmission. Sounds like the linkage is lose. Tighten the bolt on the linkage and you will off and running again.
