Stick shift hard to get into first. How fix?

First check the linkage

Then loosen or disconnect to linkage,
so you can shift the trans by hand

If it has a cable involved, remove the trans end

My guess is-- you need to pull the trans & take it
apart to find the worn parts & problem

Also the clutch may be an issue

Solutions given are for NEWER transmissions. Mine is a 1955 Ford auto trans that will shift to 2 but will not shift to 3.

I had 2 1956 Fords. Your downshift rod could be stuck. It was attached to the carburetor linkage.

I had a Customline with a 312 Interceptor and a Crown Vic convertible with a 292.

Please comment on my info.

1964 c20 chevy p/u 3spd on the column .the shifter gets hung up in 1st and/or reverse when trying to shift to 3rd/4th any pictures available on line @ no cost that shows and tells steering column...

the older column shifters can be a problem, look at where the shifter arms hook to the transmission
there should be some plastic bushings on the end of each arm that nay be worn out and cause this problemtry replacing these bushings first when they are worn they won't align the shifter arms to lighn up for the next gear and the trans will have a tendency to hang between gears

I have f250 4x4 with auto .When shifting floor lever to 4 high only back tires pull. but if shifted to 4 low all 4 tires pull. whats wrong?

I had this problem and took apart the transfer case. what I found was the shift linkage going through the side of the transfer case ( just a hole in the aluminum) had worn so the shift mechanism ( a steel plate that looks like a hand with fingers squeezed together) was passing beside the linkage to engage 4 high but would hit 4 low. I put some spacers in to tighten up the linkage where it went through the wall of the case and took out the shift mechanism ( hand like piece of steel) and heated it with the torch and bent it slightly so it would catch the 4 high linkage. worked for me for another 250 000km. lots of off road use. good luck.

2000 Chevy Prizm Lsi 4-speed auto trans. problems

That does sound like a linkage adjustment problem.

If that does not work, I'd try a fluid change and filter. But your diagnostics with pulling on the gear shifter is a pretty good indication of a linkage problem.

Shift linkage, ? trans dosn't seen to go into gear

look on the top of your trans have a friend or gf shift the car from gear to gear when nor running look for moving cable if none then time to take the console apart
remember there are also shift linkages on some models so you might ha ve to jack the car up and go under it to find linkage
they are only bolted on under car and in a ball others

98 chevy cheyene 1500 automatic -hard to shift-

Loosen the bolt thats on the trans that holds the linkage on..Some one may have tightened it to much..Or grab a hold of it and see if it is sloppy and moves around..If so its loose inside trans..Another possible cause the linkage from column to trans may be binding up when trying to shift..Hope this helps you and Have A Great Night

I’m happy to assist further over the phone at
