You can see if you can get a used one from the auto wreckers. repair a broken one is not advisable.

Sounds like just a broken Cable in your shifter. Should be fairly easy to fix and cheap the cable should be more than 70.00 usd if that and the repair should take about an hour so what ever the shop charges plus the price of the parts. I would say 150.00 May be depending on the shops prices. don't be to scared I have seen the cable **** out many many times and I am sure thats the problem, So don't let them scam you if they try to say its the tranny get a second opinion.

SOURCE: rear brakes locking up

sounds like you may have brake fluid leaking onto your rear brake shoes,or your brakes are contaminated with something.also check rear brake shoes are adjusted correctly and or worn out.If you have disc brakes on rear make sure e-brake isn't stuck on.

SOURCE: 91 sunbird le 2.0 sparkplug gap under hood

I would go with the one under the hood because the owners manual is generic for all models for that year while the one under the hood is for your model.

Broken shift cable on manual trans. how do unhook cable for shifter


pull the console out and take a good look at the bushings which connect the shifter to the cables. before you buy a shift cable kit take a look at a saturn shifter bushing repair kit at a parts store or on ebay, this is a very common problem on saturn S's 91-02 and often can be fixed with the 20 dollar repair kit. look on youtube for instructions on pulling the console, there are only 4 screws, and the boots to deal with.

1997 chevy cavalier 5 speed makes a popping noise in front right when shifting


Unless I'm way wrong. 4 cyl, front wheel drive? Your constant velocity joint has either lost its boot, losing all the grease or the joint is worn out. This is a repair for experienced gear heads. Not for amateurs.
