05 automatic V6 mustang has a stiff shifter and is hard to put from park to other gears and vice versa. What is its problem and how do I fix it?


The shifting cables can go bad and freeze up. If your mechanically inclined you can set emergency parking brake then disconnect cable on the side of your transmission and see how hard it is to shift. If stiff remove center console and disconnect cable from shifter. Then it should move freely because the frozen cable isn't connected. Replace bad cable or what ever part may have been binding.

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!

Shift lever won't go to park and moves stiff even while pushing on metal lever on the side of the transmission


The first thing i would do is to disconnect the cable at the lever on the ******, next move the lever at the ****** by hand and it should move by hand with little force. if the lever is hard to move then you may have a trany shift rod problem. next with cable removed try to go through the gears with the shifter , the shifter should flow with ease if its hard to move then its the shifter cable or the shifter itself. to find out which one you will need to disconnect cable at sifter and then move the shifter to see if its still tight. if the shifter is tight to move with cable removed then its the shifter but if it moves with ease then you have a bad cable. good day.

Any other parts to replace will be determined after the cable is off or replaced since they are hidden After the new cable is on and the shifter does operate correctly, your all set to go

My Sable will turn on fine but when i try shifting the gear they won't go in the shifter just glides along and the car remains idle. The day it started doing this it made a loud screeching noise and...


If the shifter moves but does not feel like it is trying to put car in gear the cable that goes from the shifter to the transmition could have broke or came loose. If that happened while driving the gears may have tried to shift when tension was released from the cable.

94 honda accord hard to shift from park


You seem to have two (2) separate problems one may be a BAD brake light switch this switch is mounted at the top of BRAKE pedal and control the locking mechanism on gear shifter(safety component-for example if a kid is sitting in seat with vehicle running he/she will NOT be able to put vehicle in gear without stepping on brake). The other problem is a BAD shifter cable-this cable moves the selector in the transmission when you move shift knob. Good luck and thanks for using FIX YA

Check the cable clips at the trans. Sometimes these clips come out and won't shift. Horseshoe clips that hold the cable housing.
