    Good thought but that was first thing checked. The shifter, cable,& linkage are all working. I can put it in drive and the car tries to go but something is locked up. It is not slipping but wrather just can not move. Also the breaks are not on or stuck.

Your shift cable is either broken or has become disconnected.

    Then i would assume something has come apart internally. If you pull the pan off, you may be able to spot the problem. Or it could be the torque converter.

95 cadillac eldorado gear shifter stuck in park


Are you parked on a hill with the parking pawl stuck? If so you must move the car to relieve the stress.
It could be just wear, how many miles on it?
If you can find the linkage on the tranny perhaps you can release it there.

It sounds like the linkages have let go. If this is the case, then drive it to a repairer straight away. If you turn the vehicle off you might not get it started again.

you car likely thinks its stuck in reverse, which it may be... even if you can roll it. you'll need to find a way to either get it into park or neutral, normally this can be done by the actual linkages under the shift console or from underneath the car.

I have a 2000 metro the trans shifts hard when you first start up from 2nd to 3rd. But after that it seams not to shift down from 3rd no matter how many times you spot and go again.


Before guessing at transmission problems, check the fluid level (car warmed up, engine running in Park on level ground) and have the PCM scanned for trouble codes FIRST.
Shift suddenly become very hard. When going from park to either reverse or drive it slams into gear. 1-2 and 2-3 shifts are also harsh. All gears seems to work. Problem may be intermittent: Check TPS for smooth electrical response. If the response is jumpy or erratic at all, replace TPS.
Thank you for using fixya and keep us posted.

Gear shift stuck in park on a 2001 gran am. howdo


It is probably not the shift linkage causing your concern. All modern vehicles have a feature called Shift Interlock. It doesn't allow the shifter on automatic equipped vehicles to be moved from park without the key in the ignition and the brake applied. There should be a bypass that will allow you to atleast drive the car for the time being. Check your owners manual to find where it is. It's usually around the shifter. The most common cause for this problem are the brake switch or the shift lock solenoid.

I think the shift linkage is all internal so if you can get the shifter pulled out of the top of the trans through the floor, you can probably realign the linkage to a neutral position and reinstall shifter.
There may be something worn or broken that caused it or just one of those fluke happenings.

Gear Stuck in Parking


linkage jamed up / obstructed ? Try blocking the wheels and having someone IN THE CAR with their foot on the brake , and climb under the hood and disconect the shift linkage. Try moving it by hand. If this works , then the linkage should be looked at , it is probably a cable linkage and can be replaced with a salvage yards for cheap enough.
