It's a cable under car . may be just loose connections. floor shift?

column shift?

check under hood first on driver side where transmision is. look for loose fasteners. then you might have to remove console for floor shift or plastic shrouds if column shift.

Hi, My car goes into gears whilst idling without even pushing the clutch in. any ideas as to what they might have done wrong? they were fixing the engine before this as the crank shaft pulley broke.


You mean the stick just falls into gear? while engine is running and the car lurches forward? I would say the gates are wore out in the transmission, but even at that, it should not go in gear unless you have the clutch pushed in, IF it were to try to engage while car is running, the shifter would come in contact with the gear in the trans and grind because the clutch would not be engaged. Maybe somehow the linkage got bent on the transmission while they were replacing the pulley on the car or a bushing broke on the shifter linkage?

Truck won't shift into gear


Oh, boy - this could be pricey!! Either the shift linkage came apart or the Transmission went bad. Find the shift linkage rod coming through the firewall and follow it to the transmission. Check for connection to the trans and if the grommets are good. If both are good, then you'll need to get it to a transmission shop to be investigated. If no Linkage rod, then your trans is 'wired' meaning it is electronically controlled, and the shift solenoid ( or other component)is bad or has a bad connection. If this is the case, locate the shift solenoid on the side of the trans and inspect the wires - if any are burnt or lumpy, that would be bad and need replacement.
Hope this helps!!

I can shift into drive but it won't engage


sounds like a broken shift cable. (the connection between the shifter and the gearbox) common symptoms are the shifter move easier than normal.and does not move to any gears (not even park or neutral).

MY 2001 LEXUS rx300 WITH 205K DOESN'T ENGAGE, THE GEAR SHIFT MOVES BACK AND FORWARD EASILY WITHOUT ANY GEAR.WHAT IS THE PROBLEM?


Broken shifter linkage is where i would start. Its a cable that runs from your shifter to the trans. To put it in gear.

My mazda is stuck in gear (2nd) and its not the clutch where is the linkage located and is it possible that a nut that connects the shifter inside the vehicle to the transmission down below is gone?


The linkage is basically a large rod that runs from the shifter to the trans with a bolt at each end like a universal pivot. They ususally get sloppy because the bushings wear out. But that would not make it where it would be stuck in gear. If you cant get it out of gear the trans may need to come apart.

That does sound like a linkage adjustment problem.

If that does not work, I'd try a fluid change and filter. But your diagnostics with pulling on the gear shifter is a pretty good indication of a linkage problem.

Shifter won't shift gears


Have someone look @ linkage on trans. while someone moves shift lever thru the gears. If lever @ trans doesn't move then its in the linkage between the column and trans. (possible clip or pin broken @ linkage jounts). If lever @ trans moves then its a trans. internal prob.

Manual transmission shifter will not engage


Sounds to me that the shifter broke, i believe the shifter has a ball end that slips into a pocket in trans. that moves for gear selection and that ball brook off end of shifter. if its got a linkage set up most likely samething either shifting arms came off or shifter broke where linkage rods connect.
