My 1997 Chevy Cavalier automatic transmission is stuck in neutral and the shifter just glides from park, won't engage in any gears.


If the shift handle moves extremely freely (more than normal), changes are that the shift cable has become disconnected from the shift lever. This would explain the indicator not moving out of neutral.
You will need to access the shift lever by removing the console cover. Once you access the shifter check the cable connection to the level. If the cable is broken, it will need replacement. If the cable clip has broken or fallen off, it will need to be reattached.

Car only starts in neutral?


I was first going to say the problem is the neutral safety switch, but based on what you said about it being stuck in drive and the shifter can be moved around, I would say the cable is broke or a connector on either end of the cable. The cable connects the shifter with the shift lever on the side of the transmission.
The shift lever is probably under the master cylinder on the driver side.

1991 chevy c1500 manual trans won't shift


Is the clutch working? Will it roll freely when engaged? If so then it probably is just the linkage sync in the top of transmission. Or it is stuck in probably first or third? Not positive how that one is. But there is three movable linkages. 1 and 2, 3 and 4, 5 and R. In order to shift a different one the one your on has to go back to neutral or the other one won't shift. The gearshift probably jumped over to one that won't move. And you have to take it off and set them back to neutral and put it back together.

Or It has broken gears, which would have to be real bad to keep it out of all gears.

I hope this helps. Too late Im sure.
