Shifter can be removed with shifter boot out of the way, and pushing down and turning round collar at base of shifter to the left or right, with shift lever out it should be easy to tell weather the bottom of shift lever is worn or broken off.

2003 Focus zx5 with a 5 speed manual. Yesterday after driving about 50 miles it became more and more difficult to push into all gears but would go if forced. Clutch worked and could drive it but could hear...

The transmission has synchronisers to help line up the gears when you shift from one gear to another. If this transmission has been treated rough or rawhided and speed shifted, these synchroniser clips become bent and turn up and won't allow the synchroniser to slid over them into place and hold the transmission in gear. Eventually you will have to replace them. You will notice if you take it easy when shifting, it will get easier. Don't get in a hurry and jam the shifter or it will just get worse and they will have to be replaced. I hope you better understand how your shifter work. I hope you can buy some time before you have to put a fair amount of money it to it.
Good Luck.

Transmission shifts fine but shifter spins

No big problem. Depending on your gearbox, it can be inside or on top. Best to speek to a vw dealer and you by and install the part yourself. The dealer salesman will show you on a drawing how to install. Very easy. Enjoy.

I just got O/D off light on in my 1998 Toyota Corolla. What to do

hello subir. This is the over drive function. someone may have accidentally pushed this button so to turn it off you will have to find it and push it again. there is a Overdrive button somewhere on the shifter. It is probably on the side of the actual handle or down near the 4-speed gear numbers, sometimes even in the end of the shifter..

O/D off is NOT a big problem at all- you just don't want to use it all of the time because it runs your engine a lot harder because you are always in a lower gear. That would be used if you were driving up a big hill, for example, and don't want it staying in the highest gear. It gives you more power in circumstances like that

Hard to get it in the right gear unless you pull up on the shifter its a 5 speed manual

The shifter is removable. And at the end of the shaft is a plastic "ball" that wears out. This is common on the toyota's. Remove the boot, and push down and spin the inner collar around the base of the shifter to unlock the shifter to remove it.

Installed new automatic transmission shifter cable. Got it on the car and works but something is not lined up. I got it hooked up to the transmission and to the shifter. When I shift through the gears they...

Set your park break and put the shifter in another gear and put the cover on. There may be a slight curve in the shifter to allow enough room. If everything works without it you can`t be off with the cable.

I was driving yesterday & it wont go into any gear. It's like its real loose. 5 speed Dodge Neon. Shifter just wiggles around. How can I tighten that or is it something major?

Well check if your gear shifter cable is not broken or off loose. Have somebody wiggles the shifter while you look around the transmission and see whets going in on. Good luck

My Toyota pickup jumps out of gears a lot

You will have to remove the boot from your shifter and then remove teh bolts that hold the shifter in place. when you remove the shifter you will see in the transmission a white plastic piece. this piece wears as time goes by with toyotas and allows the shifter to pop out. Luckily for you its an inexpensive piece and an easy repair.
