Can you tell me how to do a cable adjustment so I can get the gears I'm missing please?


Make sure that the transmission oil level is up to the specified level and there is a slight play in the accelerator cable with the throttle pedal released. Follow the following diagram to adjust the transmission control cable.

Reserve is drive nuetrule is drive and all the gears are drive


From the shifter to the transmission there is a cable that sometimes needs adjusting or could be broken. It may seem to be shifting at the shifter but may not be changing gears at the tranny. Get a manual (25 bucks at autozone). It tells ya how to adjust or replace it. It is relatively easy.

1.2 manual reverse gear problum


Manual transmission does not change gears with transmission oil. If yours is the AMT type, get it scanned for error codes.If the problem is in shifting into R, get your clutch cable adjusted. Your clutch plate may have also worn out. If shifting is OK but the car just does not move, the gear linkage/cable may need adjustment. If all else is OK, the reverse gear in the transmission may have been damaged.

Check the cable under the gear lever. Look for broken pin or missing pin joining the lever to the cable

2000 sable- can't shift out of park. shifter glides and needle on dash moves there's no gears shifting. is the transmission blown?


Not likely a blown transmission. More of a shifter cable issue. There is an adjustment nut on the ****** end. It could be loose or missing. If the nut is fine you have a broken cable.

Shifting gears late


take it back to the shop that rebuilt it and tell them to readjust the throttle pressure cable. if its shifting early then you will damage the transmission from having to low pressure

Yes, it can damage the transmission. The throttle valve cable controls a modulated pressure - according to throttle opening. A missing or improperly adjusted tv cable results in too low pressure. You didn't state clearly if cable has been installed now. Be sure to install and then make proper adjustment. It should be a self-adjusting cable but they most always need a bit of tweeking as the self-adjust is imo a poor design. Too little space here but you can probably google the adjustment proceedure. Hopefully it wasn't damaged and you'll be OK with proper adjustment. Good luck.

I have a 2004 mazda rx-8 6 speed manual transmission...i am having a real hard time shifting into gears...sometime it won't even bulge into gear, and that's when i have to use excessive forces just to put...


You need to check the clutch hydraulics i.e. the clutch master cylinder and the slave cylinder for their function, even if its cable operated try to adjust it so as it opens the clutch fork a little more to allow the clutch plate to be free,thus easy selection of gears.
If this fails thn you will have to replace the pro-kit i.e. clutch plate, pressure plate and release bearing.
Hope this helps!

My sunfire is not shifting properly....


I had a similar problem except i could shift to first and third and fifth but not 2nd or 4th or reverse. the only thing that came to my mind was new transmission but that is not the case. It was a way i could but it was so frustrated. I am certain it is the shifting cables. The name of the part you need to get is TRANSMISSION SHIFTING CABLES. Only the dealership has them, about $200.00 got them and installed but a certified mechanic. I have no problems shifting into any gear at all. Hope this information helps. Any info contact me at yellowise20@aol.com
