If the vehicle fails to engage in any gear and feels loose the shifter cable is broke.This cable isn't easy to replace, you may want to have a mechanic replace it if your not familiar with it.

2001 pontiac Aztck wont go into gear


The problem with mine was the gear shifter lock solenoid was broke. Inside the cup holder (the one closest to seats) is a slide door about a !/2" wide by 2" long. slide that up and inside you will see a white disc. With a tool that can reach it, pull it towards the passenger seat and it will allow you to push the gear shifter button in to shift. This is a temporary fix and will have to be repeated each time you want to put car in gear.

I installed a muncie m20 tranny in my 72 camaro and thought the shft rods were set ..but turns out 1st gear was in the 2nd gear position i tried flipping rod paddles upside down now gears are locked up...


You are right about the shift pattern. Reverse is hard left and up.If your gears are locked up, you'll probably have to remove the side cover and reset the shift levers to their neutral position and then slide gears around to put it back on. With it back on the shift levers should point up toward the car floor. 3-4 is the shift lever closest to the engine. 1-2 is the middle one and reverse is the one closest to the back of the tranny. Check all your swivel points for looseness. If there is any play then you'll have to bush it out or you'll have trouble getting it to shift into gear and stay in. I used some old copper pipe to make bushings on mine, because it used to jump out of gear.
To properly attach your shift linkage, put the shifter and the trans mounted shift levers in neutral. Loosen the locking clamps so the shift rods slide freely. start with the reverse lever, which is the inner most rod on the shifter and tighten the rod nut against the swivel. Then tighten the lock nut. Do the same with the 1-2 rod on the middle rod on the shifter and then the 3-4 which is the outside rod . This should set you up, according to Chilton.
They note that if the tranny is 68 Camero Muncie the shift rods need to be shortened 3 complete turns of the lock nut.
Hope some of this helps.

Not sure if shifter is installed properly


Ok, I guess its going to be a not too obvious solution then. All we have to do is find it...
1.What type of gear shifter is in your truck. Column or tower
2. Is the tail shaft turning when you try to move the vehicle
3. Does the vehicle try to move at all
4. Is there any noise from the gearbox or clutch area
5. Are you certain the clutch kit was the right one
6. Did you try the clutch plate on the gearbox input shaft spline
7. Is the release bearing clear of the pressure plate fingers.
8. Does the release bearing carrier slide freely on the retainer on the front of the bearbox, and did you apply lubricant here.

1976 corvette shifter locked up, goes in revese & neutral only


You're going to have to crawl underneath it, and see what's going on. Your linkage has probably come loose, and the shifter is sliding on the rod, instead of changing gears like it should.
