SOURCE: My 87 VW Jetta is stuck in second gear and shifter

Front wheel drive cars with transaxles use a shifter cable that runs from the shifter to the transaxle. Have a look under the hood and see if the cable broke loose from the linkages, or from the shifter itself.
Best thing to do in this situation is to have a mechanic look at it. There's really nothing that anyone here can fix without having a look at the car and troubleshooting it.

My dodge neon stuck in first gear wont go in any other gear its all play


There are bushings in the linkage for the shifter under the car at the shifter and at the trans. Those wear out or the retaining pin clip may have come off and pin got loose.

Gear shift feels like a pin fell out. Seems to be flopping around. Won't engage in any gear.


Look at the tube the shifter goes into, is there a pin in a hole there? If not find it and reinstall the pin that retains the shift arm to the steering column barrel.

2002 dodge neon manual has no gears.


the gears my be fine need to remove the boot around your shifter make sure everything is connected still should have a cable shifter in it. if it is all hooked up there open the hood and look on top of the transmission it will have a lever the move back n forth to shift for each gear the other end of your cable attaches to the lever should have a either a plastic bushing or clip attaching it to the lever some time those wear the it pops off

have somebody move the shift around and see if it moves if it dont you need a shifter cable.

if it does then before you go any further reach down with your hand or a screw drive or pry bar if you cant get you hands to it with the clutch engaged you should be able to shift it into gear maunaly and feel it go in jus like you would if you was doin it from in the car make sure your gently so you dont bend anything if you can feel it go into each gear make sure your adjust the cable to where everything works

I was driving yesterday & it wont go into any gear. It's like its real loose. 5 speed Dodge Neon. Shifter just wiggles around. How can I tighten that or is it something major?


Well check if your gear shifter cable is not broken or off loose. Have somebody wiggles the shifter while you look around the transmission and see whets going in on. Good luck
