Why does shift selector go into park sometimes but other times won't?


The travel limits on the shift linkage at the transmission is adjustable. The nylon bushings on the pivot points may be worn too. Have a mechanic inspect the linkage for any abnormal wear on the bushings or the linkage itself. Renew the bushings before you try adjusting the linkage.

I have a 1989 300zx manual trans. Will not shift in to reverse what coud be the problem


Sounds like linkage from shift lever to transmission or the bushings on the linkage points. A "sloppy" shift lever with similar bushing problems may be the problem.

How do i change the gear shift linkage bushings?


Remove the guide rail, open pinion port with Sentry tool. Withdraw link pin and shaft assemble and place it vertically on the drum side of the chassis. Pull the wheel housing and draw down the shift bushings. Pop out the jargon plate and dandelion scope. You are done.

Replace shift linkage bushing on 2002 trailblazer


All that was wrong with my 2002 Trailblazer was a 6.00 part my husband bought at PepBoys! It's the plastic grommet/bushing that broke that holds the shifter cable to the linkage...took him 10 min to fix!

Dosn't shift when runing


First check all the linkage bushes, are they worn and need replacing. If they're OK it could be your thrust bearing (part of the clutch mechanism) has seized.

2003 Cadillac CTS. Shift linkage makes metallic sound when shifting. Sounds like it is loose. Shift selector does not feel crisp when shifting. Want to access to tighten/check. How??


Just had the same problem. The problem is that the rubber bushing on the transmission linkage deteriorates and falls off. This causes two problems - shifter is loose and a metallic clunking sound is heard when shifting. It's not the shifter inside the car. It's the linkage underneath the car. You have to buy the bushing (if sold by itself) or the linkage kit. The linkage is on the passenger side of the transmission between transmission and right side exhaust pipe. Ensure engine/exhaust is cold prior to trying to access. Regards.

1982 rabbit shift linkage


There is a plastic ball that is in the shift linkage that also wears and is usually not included in the shift linkage bushing kit. It is attached to a metal piece and is bolted to the shift linkage. This is generally the problem if you already replaced the bushings.

Sometimes the linkage is out of adjustment but I would make sure that the ball is not worn first. They generally cost $5.00 - $8.00 or so.

If you need to adjust the linkage you can try the following, but if the bushings or the ball is worn adjustment will not do any good.

There is an adjustment on the shift rod that goes from the shifter to the transmission. It is a rod slipped into a tube with a locking collar or clamp.

The way that I do this is to make sure that your vehicle is in 1st gear and then loosen the bolt on the clamp.

Make sure that the clamp is loose enough so that the shaft can slip in the tube. Put the shifter in the 1st gear position and then tighten the clamp.

You may need to fiddle with this a little to get it in just the right spot.

This is much easier if you have an assistant.

Maybe the stick in the transmission is broken.
