They probably just poped the cable linkage loose under the hood. On the drivers side, near the fire wall, look down at the top if the transmission. You will see a lever with a studded ball. The cable should be right there also. Just pop the cable back onto the studded ball.

87 Dodge Ram pickup with automatic transmission unhook passing gear, unhooked would it run better or worse?

Not much difference in the city. Might even help your fuel mileage but over 45 probably not so good. Would probably burn up your transmission

I had that problem with a VW also.
Turned out to be a combination of the motor mounts and the transmission shifting adjustment.
I also had an awful time finding someone who could fix it.
I had to find a VW expert, took me many weeks.
One way to tell if it is the transmission is to unhook all the shifting linkage from the transmission, and shift the gears by hand by moving the shifting lever on the side or top of the transmission.
You would need to have the car up in the air with all the wheels off the ground to do this.
If it works fine up in the air, it is your linkage.
Be blessed.

Would i burn my transmission,by flat towwing it

If this is about the Camry, you can tow an automatic up to 25 mph without damage. No faster.
If it is a manual trans, you can tow it at freeway speed as long as the clutch is disengaged.

How to fix error code P1709

The transmission has a kickdown switch and it is either unhooked or broken. This switch is used when you are driving in mountains or need to pass and the car has lost speed. It drops the transmission one gear range in order to compensate

Transmission does not work will not shift

If it is a automatic transmission check the transmission fluid level. low trans fluid will not allow it to work properly, also if it is an auto the cable and/or linkages from the shifter to the transmission could have broken or come unhooked. If it is a manual transmission the syncronizers are probably shot. the syncronizers are not a diy fix for anyone with no experience working on vehicles.

How do you replace the engine and transmission in a 1987 Pontiac 6000. It's a 4 cylinder.

Unhook wires at harnesses, unhook hoses after draining fluids, jack front end up, put jack stands under 2 front wheels under the body and position the jack under the main frame that the engine and transmission that the engine and transmission is mounted to, take bolts out of the strut towers on each side, remove 6 main frame bolts, lower jack and roll engine, transmission and frame from under car, you may have to raise back up to fully get it out

Speedometer not working

It all depends, usually there are only three things it could be. 1st, your speedometer cable. If you pull the speedometer out, and unhook the cable from the back...........pull the cable out of the middle of the sheath, and make sure it isn't broken off, if that checks out, slide it back in there (could take some twisting and pushing). Then, (you will need 2 people) unhook the cable from the side of the transmission, and spin the cable from the bottom, and make sure someone is watching the speedometer, and tells you if it moves. If not, you need a new speedometer, if it does move, you will need the small gear in the transmission. Make sure when you pull the cable out, you pull it all the way out. When putting it back, it might be easier if you leave it unhooked from the transmission so the sheath has less bends in it, you can just let it hang down. Good luck, hope all goes well.
