2001 subaru legacy is stuck on drive and wont disengage


Sounds like the cable or linkage has broken in side at the shifter assembly or out side at the transmission selector.Have some one move the shifter while you look under the hood at the transmission lever ( Do this with the car not running but the key on and the parking brake and foot brake applied) and see if it is moving . If it is not moving trace the cable back to inside the car to diagnose if it is the cable or the handle assembly . normally it is the cable or the clips the connect the cable at either end.

What makes up the governor assembly in a Chrysler 300M


All the parts you listed are internal to the transmission. The cable is external - it runs from the shifter lever to the range selector lever on the transmission. Their analysis doesn't sound right though. If the cable is broken, the shifter should move freely as you described. But that (broken cable and bent lever) happened AFTER the problem of the transmission being stuck in reverse. Your efforts to unstick probably bent the shifter and broke the cable. It would seem something was jammed before you tried to get out of reverse, possibly inside the transmission.

97' Camry shift cable broke need to find location and how to fix


You're going to have to take the center console apart where the shifter is. The cable should be right there, attached to the bottom of the shifter, inside the car. It's probably just held in with a clip.

The other end attaches to the transmission, on the side or top.

To fix it, you have to replace the entire cable assembly. Once you get the new one and see what it looks like, it will be easier to recognize the old one and identify what needs to come off to get it out of there.

1999 Saturn SL2 manual transmission stuck in gear, shifter moves freely. Where could the problem location be...under car or do I need to take out the console to locate problem


The problem is the bushing that attaches the cable to the shifter has failed. This is a plastic bushing and can be reattached if the tabs are not broken. You need to remove the console to access the cable end, the bushing goes through the plastic cable end and snaps on the ball attached to the shifter. There is a stainless replacement part available on line for $29.00 check satarnshifterbushing.blogspot.com

1995 Saturn SW2 5 speed manual transmission doesn't engage any gears; no noises no warning. What could it be


It sounds to me like the linkage between the gear shift handle and the transmission case.
You'll have to get under the car to see if that's the case so take an adjustable spanner under there with you. You may also need to find a a bolt or nut to put it back together. If that's the problem, put some "thread locker" on the bolt threads and it won't happen again.

The shifter cable came loose


The end of the cable on the GM is a molded plastic piece. Part of the cable. If the plastic tab has broken off you really only have two choices.
  1. Replace the entire cable, a tough job.
  2. push the plastic end back on the arm of the trans shifter and use two zip ties in a cross patter to tighten it down. I have seen this work if done right for years.
Hope this helps.

Saturn SL1 Shifter to Shiftstick


I had the same problem over a year and a half ago. I went to the closest Saturn dealership to get the replacement plastic piece. Turned out that the ENTIRE shift cable assembly was the smallest part that could be purchased to repair this. The cable assembly was over $200 at that time. I opted to forgo the ridiculous expense for this tiny little plastic part. True story: with a little heavy safety wire and a large washer I jury rigged the washer to hold the end of the shift cable in the fitting at the bottom of the shift stick. The washer acts as a keeper and the wire, wrapped in a basket around the back side keeps everything together. It still shifts reliably, a little looser than when it was new, but I saved $200 in parts (99% of which weren't broken) and probably a couple of hours of labor at least. One end of the cable assembly has to be attached to the transmission by the way and is not easily accessible. Sounds hokey but it really worked, still works!
