Replace the output speed sensor on the front of the tranny. It has two wires going to it. ANd looks like a round plug with a bolt like base on it. It is also white.

You did not need to remove the heater box to replace the cable. There is a hole in the floor the cable passes through.

SOURCE: broken shift cable on manual trans. how do unhook

pull the console out and take a good look at the bushings which connect the shifter to the cables. before you buy a shift cable kit take a look at a saturn shifter bushing repair kit at a parts store or on ebay, this is a very common problem on saturn S's 91-02 and often can be fixed with the 20 dollar repair kit. look on youtube for instructions on pulling the console, there are only 4 screws, and the boots to deal with.

Hi, My mustand gear shifter stopped working on a moments notice. It's now stuck in reverse and the shifter seems to just glide over the gears and never engages. Please advise


this is a broken shift cable, it's an easy repair to do. go to the ford dealer parts department and they can get you the part and help you with information on how to install it.by the way the cable is not under the car its part of the shifter assembly.

My 2001 ford ford focus seems to be stuck in 3rd gear.


This could be connected to your overdrive, or fourth gear. Most likely you could have broken a band which is located in the transmission, not very fun to take apart. but if your up to it rebuild kits come to 150$ to 200$ and the kit comes with the bands and clutches everything u need. Sorry best of luck
