1999 GMC Sierra stuck in drive. What do I do?


First off, set the parking brake, raise vehicle so you can get under it. Remove the shift linkage from the transmission and manually move the shift lever to park. Then try moving the shift mechanism inside the car to park and then through each gear (engine off of course). See if the mechanism sticks, if so, probably a broken tab on the locking mechanism for the shift lever in the steering column. If it moves freely, try the lever on the transmission back and forth through the gear range to see if it sticks. If it sticks, or you can't initially move it by hand, you have a transmission problem that requires trained individuals to fix. If it moves freely also, try lubing the cable with silicone spray at all contact points, especially where it enters and exits any cable sheathing. (spray into sheathing well) If both move freely independent of each other, it may just have been in a bind, put both shifter and tranny lever in park and reattach the shift cable, Then try the gear range again from inside the vehicle.

96 Ford Explorer XLT 4.0 4x4 will only go while in low 4wd. The RPM gauge shot up , engine revved , a loud pop was made and sound of air was released. Acts likes it is in Park when placed in any gear


If the car is still moving forward when you are placing it in gear, there are a few things to check.
look under the vehicle and place the car in stadard 2wd, and try to move the car forward. watch the rear end to see if it buckles, and watch the driveline to see if it is spinning freely or catching up. Check the U-joint for the rear end. See if the SUV is able to be pushed backwards and forwards.
The fact that it will not move in 2wd, but it moves in 4wd, makes me think that you are not having a xfer or transmission issue, but one in the rear end. Spider gears could have failed, or it could be something as simple as a U-joint.
Feel free to send me pics, and let me know how that goes.

Buick Century 2000 gear shifter moves freely will not start


Sounds like your shift cable came unhooked or just plain Broke, it hooks to shifter and hooks to transmission, If it moves freely I would say it's Broken, and that is why car won't start cause it is still in drive

06 chevy equinox transmission, put in drive, speedo says 5 to 10 mph but the truck does not move, put in park but truck still rolls, is it transfer case problem because if transmission is in gear, speedo...


You need to adjust the 4x4 shifter itself. That's your only problem. Moving the shifter isn't putting the transfer case into gear and speedo will move, whirring sound is just the bearings spinning. Re-set the 4x4 shifter linkage to proper specs.

My 1997 chevrolet suburban will not go in any gear the fluid level is normal.


Does the shifter move freely or is there resistance?

If it moves freely, the problem is a broken cable. If it has resistance, the problem is in the transmission

1999 F350 crew cab 4x4 ford, gear shift lever


Ok ready to stand on your head under the dash?
It's doable... there is a flange connected to the gearshift lever under the steering column. If you remove the lower dash cover where the fuses are, you should be able to see it when you move the gear shift lever... look around on the floor of the truck to see if you dropped a star-headed bolt or two... these bolts worked loose on my superduty and made shifting very difficult..it was an easy fix... let me know how you do on it.
