Question about 2002 Chrysler PT Cruiser

1 Answer

My 01 pt cruiser wont go into reverse

The car has been running fine.I got in the other day and shifted into reverse. When i did the shifter went limp in all gears. There was no bite only play in all gears. I pushed it to the far right and had all gears but reverse return work. I have been driving it for three days not using reverse and it runs perfect except for it seems loser in the shifter itself at the base.I tried to put in reverse today and the same thing happen. All gears and linkage gone until i move to far right and then they return minus reverse. Is my car haunted LOL

Shift linkage bushings under the air filter box are probably gone.

Try to add LUCAS OIL transmission anti-slipp additive. It helps smooth the shifting. If this helps you need to replace transmission fluid with the filter and add fresh fluid with Lucas oil additive ..

Shifter went limp now cant shift out of gear feels like broke inside.. shifter knob does a circle motion now cant even move shifter knob like i normally would.. i had to pop clutch to get truck started...


you have to know if the problem is inside transmission or outside
first under truck unplug shifter cable then try to move the manual lever of transmission near the pan but have hand brake on so the truck won't run over you.
if the problem is inside the transmission could be the parking pawl nut to manual shaft too much end play
if it outside transmission could be trans, cable or linkage
hope it helps

Car won't shift into reverse...Shifter moves but that's it..


im assuming this is an automatic transmission? it sounds like the cable or the linkage to the transmission gave out. your gonna have to get under the hood or under the car to see. it may be a easy fix-good luck!

2002 Nissan maxima stuck in 3rd gear, auto tranny . I was driving the other day to realize the light on the dash said I was in 3rd instead of drive, but my gear shifter was in the drive position ....


Most modern day autos are all electronically controlled, Usually if it detects a fault it can go into limp mode which by default is 3rd gear. The fact your speedo is not working which too is most likely sensor driven then that may be a clue to what is wrong. No speed sensor, no speedo and the transmission control unit is not getting the vehicle speed sense either. So it has no way of knowing what gear to be in or any shift points. I'm thinking it's a sensor issue would be my best guess.
