You have to pull the steering column down to replace that end of the cable.

Hope this helps.

Shifter hard to move thru gears cables are good and free when disconnected hear squeak when shifting


first i would contact ford dealershift to see if any recalls with this problem...The transmission on the 2002 Ford Focus has been having problems shifting gears,The linkage inside the transmission suffers from premature wear, causing difficulty in switching or shifting gears. The transmission bands that wrap around each gear to hold the gears in place are becoming loose, causing the gears to shift harshly. Both problems have been the biggest culprit when the Ford Focus transmission experiences problems shifting gears. The only correction for this shifting problems is to have the transmission replaced or rebuilt.

2000 sable- can't shift out of park. shifter glides and needle on dash moves there's no gears shifting. is the transmission blown?


Not likely a blown transmission. More of a shifter cable issue. There is an adjustment nut on the ****** end. It could be loose or missing. If the nut is fine you have a broken cable.

1991 Honda Civic DX Why am I able to push the car with automatic transmission while it's in park? The car won't start and run, either.


If the car rolls with the shifter in the park position and the starter will not engage the engine than the transmission is not in park. This could be caused by a bad shift cable. In order to confirm this you will need to find the area where the shift cable attaches to the transmission. While a helper runs the shifter through the gears check the linkage at the transmission to see if it is moving. If the linkage is not moving that there is a problem with the shift cable or the shifter. Some disassembly of the center council may be necessary to gain access to the area where the shift cable attaches to the shifter to see if it is still attached to the shifter. If it is and the shifter is moving the cable than the cable will need to be replaced. If the cable is moving the linkage at the trans than there is probably something wrong internally inside of the transmission. If you have any questions or need further help I will be happy to do what I can!

Transmission will not shift into any gear. dash display does not correspond.


Is your car staying in park?

I am going to go out on a limb and guess you have an automatic transmission.

I had a Stratus that had undergone a trans rebuild and later on (weeks later) the shifting cable slipped off at the transmission. I could move the shifter in the car but the transmission stayed in park. It was an easy fix, I just opened the hood and found where it was supposed to connect and stuck it back on.

That being said, I suppose another cause could be a broken shifter cable or disconnected at shifter.

If you have a helper available, open your hood and have your helper shift through the gears while you look for the shifting bracket (on the top of the tranny on drivers side of car). If the cable is connected you have a bigger problem. If cable is not moving it is disconnected at shifter or it has broken.

Please give feedback if this helps.

Repost your findings if this does not help.


Good Luck!

Shift handle moves freely with out shifting trans


The shifter works off a shift cable which is connected to the transmission. The connection of this cable to the transmission is on the drivers side looking straight up were you can see it. The other end connects to the inner part of the shifting mechanisum where you shift
You can only get a replacement at any General Motos dealerships parts department

1996 dodge stratus The shifter would not click into park but in postion , disconnected the battery. Has power but will not turn over


Try shifting into Neutral and attempt to Start the car.
If this works, there is probably a problem with the cable and/or cable connection/shifting bracket to the transmission.
When shifting, is the Indicator "on" or to the left or right of the appropriate selection (PRNDL)? If the indicator is to the left or right of them there is a good possibility that you need to loosen the gear cable connection, located on top of the transmission and pull the shifting bracket going into the transmission - towards the front of the car. While holding the bracket to the front (Park) position tighten back down the cable fasteners. Before doing this, inspect that area to ensure nothing is impeding the cable/cable connection/shifting bracket, or interfering their operation.

My sunfire is not shifting properly....


I had a similar problem except i could shift to first and third and fifth but not 2nd or 4th or reverse. the only thing that came to my mind was new transmission but that is not the case. It was a way i could but it was so frustrated. I am certain it is the shifting cables. The name of the part you need to get is TRANSMISSION SHIFTING CABLES. Only the dealership has them, about $200.00 got them and installed but a certified mechanic. I have no problems shifting into any gear at all. Hope this information helps. Any info contact me at yellowise20@aol.com
