If the cable itself has broken you wont repair it, by the time you splice it it will not fit back inside the sleeve. If the end fitting has come of the cable you may be able to crimp or braze it back on.

Unless the adjuster fell of then you cannot repair the cable
if it snapped then it was need of a replacement one anyway

Shifter went limp now cant shift out of gear feels like broke inside.. shifter knob does a circle motion now cant even move shifter knob like i normally would.. i had to pop clutch to get truck started...


you have to know if the problem is inside transmission or outside
first under truck unplug shifter cable then try to move the manual lever of transmission near the pan but have hand brake on so the truck won't run over you.
if the problem is inside the transmission could be the parking pawl nut to manual shaft too much end play
if it outside transmission could be trans, cable or linkage
hope it helps

I have a 2004 Saturn Vue Manual.. Gear shift went limp! Did my sifter cable break?


The 91-02 S series Saturns were noted for failed shifter bushings causing that problem, and there are still shifter bushing repair kits being sold for them. Look on eBay and see if there is a shifter bushing repair kit for your Saturn. They went out of business for a reason, mayhaps this issue was something else they did not want to address in later years and models.

I have a 2004 ford explorer xlt the gear shift broke when i went to put it on drive...how is that possible???


hello! will try to assist! you may have a broken shifter cable.when you turn the key to 'on' or 'start' the shifter just moves sloppy,or easily. right? thats a sign of broken shifter cable.i have a 1994 explorer 4x4 there is a shifter cable to your transmission,sometimes they break. the cable will need to be replaced. you can purchase new or used,but if you're going to keep the truck,buy it new. the older fords had a metal linkage to the transmission,without the push button 4x4 option. the new ones have a cable shifter,just another way to get into our pocket book. try this with 2 people [for safety] put your emergency brake on,turn key switch on. have someone,or you,look under the driverside of truck up at the transmission shifter cable to see if it's moving on the side of the transmission.whoevers setting in the drivers seat will have to move the shifter from park to low,with the emergency brake on so the truck does'nt move or their foot on the brake,that works too. just make sure your safe as the truck cannot move while the person's shifting the gears while you look under the truck for shifter movement on the transmission.if no movement on the transmission while the gears are shifted,the cables broken. there,i went through the steps to insure your safety,and to give you a solution. just always be safe when you're under or around a vehicle that you're trying to repair.remember this always!the vehicle can be replaced,you can not! thank you for choosing fixya com and i look forward to assisting you in the future.

Easy problem. Check your clutch fluid (it is most likely low) master cylinder on the front of the gearbox most likely has failed, causing you to try and put it in gear, but then you broke the shifter cable. Easy fix.

2002 Mazda Tribute. Gear shifter seems stripped. When taken out of park, it shifts straight down and not into any gear. Is this a part I can buy and fix myself or do I need a mechanic? If so, how much...


If you have some mechanical ability you should be able to check and repair the problem. First thing you need to do is to set parking brake and block wheels(for safety). Now remove the cover for the shifter and make sure you can see the end of the shifter and watch as you move the shifter does the shift cale move. This is where your problem most likely lies, the shift cable is most likely broken. If you find that the cable is not moving. You can also check this by looking at the transmission and seeing if the linkage moves, that way you don't have to take the shifter apart. That way if you don't want to try it at least you will know that it is the cable. That is usually what happens.
