Does it feel like the shifter cable is actually moving the detent in the transmission? I've seen a broken shifter cable in a cavalier a while back with the same symptoms you described. Check the cable where it connects to the transmission. It's under the hood on the drivers side.

I have an 04 Chevy cavalier. It was driving just fine but last night I went to leave and the gear shift wouldn't go in gear.. It. Just slides back and fourth.


Sounds like the cable broke. Where shifter is, The bezel around the shifter pops off. You can get it high enough to see if it broke the shifter cable mount or not. If it did, you'll have to replace the shifter.

My 2004 chevy cavalier won't start it is stuck in


Your shifter cable sounds like it separated from the transmission or shifter or just broke. you are probably stuck in a moving gear so the neutral safety switch is disabling the ignition.

I was driving the Chevy Cavalier. A 1998. I was in first gear until about 3500 rpm, and when i went to put it into second, it slipped down into fourth gear. Now it is stuck in fourth gear, and wont go...


Sounds like you have a broken or disconnected shift cable.There are two cable attaching at different angles.Either disconnected at trans or below shifter.

I have a 1998 chevy cavalier automatic, it would'nt start this morning in park and went out later and tried it in neutral and it started right up. has never did that before, what may have caused that?


If it will crank and start when in nuetral but won't crank over at all when in park then you may have a failing Park/Nuetral safety switch. This switch goes by a variety of names such as transmission range switch, PRNDL switch, etc., and when they begin to fail they can produce the symptoms you are having. There also could be a transmission shift linkage problem that is preventing the switch from fully reaching the "park" position but that is quite rare.

I have a 98 chevy cavalier 2.2L and need to replace shifter cable how difficult is it?


Kind of a pain in the neck - especially if you are not real inclined..

You have to take apart portions of the console to get at the cable where it connects to the shifter.. And disconnect the old cable at the shifter and at the trani linkage under-neath..

Not a real fun job..

Have a great day !

Replace termostat in a 1998 chevy cavalier still run hot


Yes it does have a electric fan, mine went out on my 2003 and I just changed the electric motor itself. Autozone offered the entire fan with motor or they offered just the motor. I chose to replace the motor only because I knew the fan blades and housing was fine. I had to drop the fan down and take out the entire assembly from the bottom but overall the process was a 3 out of 10 on the difficulty.

Shifter cable broke in 1998 chevy suburban


Ok, Disconnect it from the Tranny First. This will make it easier to Fish Through. Connect the New Cable on the Tranny. Follow where the Old one Goes with the New one, Removing the Old one as you go. It will enter the Cab and work it's way up to the Sterring Column. You will Need to remove the Dash Panel to Access the Cable on the Shifter, It just Pulls Loose. You are at the Hardest Part of this at this Point. Let me know if you cannot access the Shifter From this Point. Please Rate My Response! Thanks!
