Im assuming this is the Series I 3800? If so, if you can email me I can send you some directions on the process. Its for a Series II 3800 but it should be similar. If you cant email me, post up and I'll see what I can do.

SOURCE: replace the automatic shifter cable

I had a similiar problem on my 1996 Escort wagon. The shifter was stuck in park. There is a lil plastic circle to the right of the shifer. Get a small screwdriver and pry off the cap. Then insert a small screwdriver into the hole to see if you can release the mechanism. (by pressing down) If it is frozen like mine was, just remove the 2 screws on the shifter handle one on the side and the other on the side facing the radio. Then remove the 6 screws on the console. Remove the console, in 2 pieces...piece by the parking break first then the larger part that sets over the PRNDL if the lever is frozen and rusted like mine was get some penatrant like WD-40 or liquid wrench....squirt it into the base of the shifter and try to work the mechanism forward and reverse...Note: there is a safety mechanism that holds the shifter in position but will release when you step on the brake pedal. Hope this info helps.

SOURCE: Need to replace the shifter cable on a 2003 PT Cruiser

Have the EXACT same problem. 2005 Pt Cruiser w about 88,000 miles. Became hard to shift when cold and then bam ....something broke. Moves freely. I know I'm going to get screwed on this... what should it cost to have it fixed. The guy at a shop close by (figured close to make towing easier) started into this 'its a dealer only part and blah blah...at least an hour .... " He's going to send an estimate tomorrow. I'm in E. metro Atlanta

Buick Century 2000 gear shifter moves freely will not start


Sounds like your shift cable came unhooked or just plain Broke, it hooks to shifter and hooks to transmission, If it moves freely I would say it's Broken, and that is why car won't start cause it is still in drive

1999 Saturn SL2 manual transmission stuck in gear, shifter moves freely. Where could the problem location be...under car or do I need to take out the console to locate problem


The problem is the bushing that attaches the cable to the shifter has failed. This is a plastic bushing and can be reattached if the tabs are not broken. You need to remove the console to access the cable end, the bushing goes through the plastic cable end and snaps on the ball attached to the shifter. There is a stainless replacement part available on line for $29.00 check satarnshifterbushing.blogspot.com

I have a 1994 Plymouth Sundance with a 5 speed. Sometimes the car will not shift out of gear, but the gear shift will go up and down (but only in line...example, if I'm in 2nd, it won't shift out of 2nd,...


your cable that runs from the shifter to the trans., is stretched, or broken, or a bolt has come loose, some are dual cables with plastic caps that hold them on to the shifter. these caps break and cause alot of slop

I put a new shifter cable on my 93 accord.. it says its always in drive even when its not and it doesnt feel like it wants to stay in gear?? what could be wrong??


Check the plastic shift indicator. Most likely it popped off the shifter. The indicator has a piece that fastens to the shifter. Check to routing of the cable. Most likely it's not routed correctly where tension from the kinked cable is pulling on the shifter. Recheck your installation and you'll probably spot the problem.

Does the pitch and frequency of the "noise" increase as you driving faster?

Check both tires for nails or rock stuck on the groves of the tires.

Check the CV joint.

The boot which make of plastic can come apart over time. If you see CV grease all over the under carriage of the care then you will need new boots or replace CV joints.

Inner and outer wheel bearings can also make noise when they are about to fail.

Check you service record for more information.
