My daughters 95 LeBaron with 80k miles on it doesn't get driven that often. All the sudden wont shift out of first gear. Had no problems yesterday or any other day. Any ideas?

    Will it shift if the shifter is put in low 1 and then low 2. If so most likely a solenoid or clutch issue. Have a tranny pro take a look to properly identify the issue

Check the fluid level and color/appearance. If it is low, add transm. fluid. If the color is dark, or has a burnt smell or look, the transmission is probably done for. Look for a low mileage replacement. If the fluid is still clear and pink or red, and it wasn't low on fluid, have a transmission shop look at it. It may be repairable, at less cost than a replacement or a complete rebuild.

SOURCE: shifting gear(Acura Integra 95) gets stuck on P.

The switch should lock the shifter in park . And you should need a key to release it. It is a child safe safety that has been installed since the 70's on all US sold auto's.

Sorry but if your reverse is having trouble you will probably have to replace or rebuild tranny like me. Otherwise try new filter and fluid first.

SOURCE: Car stuck in Park, wont switch gears

check to see if the brake lights come on it may be a problem with a brake switch under the dash not letting the shift lock release. there may be a seperate switch just for it so check and see it there is two switches touching the brake pedal lever if the brake lights come on.

SOURCE: 1989 jeep wrangler wont shift gear and clutch gone loose

Get the clutch slave cylinder and master cylinder looked at.One of the 2 has failed.If the pedal goes to the floor or is very loose,this is very likely the cause.Not an expensive fix.Hope this helps

I have a 95 Mitsubishi Mirage, 1.8, manual transmission, distributor driven. 179k miles. Just started today, shudder after shifting in all gears, levels out after a moment, but seems to shudder stil

I would be checking the engine mounts as the shudder is when the engine is bouncing around under load
it it has a cable operated clutch, the problem could be that as the engine is allowed to move , it is affecting the operation of the pressure plate
it may be true that the distributor may have a problem but in this case , not electrical
distributor problems are limited ,to starting, missing, irregular timing but not what you describe

I have a 1984 Chrysler lebaron turbo, and my transmission just went out yesterday. It will not shift down into first gear by itself, I have to put it in first by moving the shifter. Even then, it slips....

Yes it can be rebuilt but it usually would cost around $3,500 to do it. Your best bet is find one in a wrecked car, in a junk yard. Or try on the internet like ebay.

Good Luck!
