My 1997 Chevy Cavalier automatic transmission is stuck in neutral and the shifter just glides from park, won't engage in any gears.


If the shift handle moves extremely freely (more than normal), changes are that the shift cable has become disconnected from the shift lever. This would explain the indicator not moving out of neutral.
You will need to access the shift lever by removing the console cover. Once you access the shifter check the cable connection to the level. If the cable is broken, it will need replacement. If the cable clip has broken or fallen off, it will need to be reattached.

Car wont start and rolls backwards even though it apears to be in park


Sounds like the shifter is stuck in reverse or drive since it will roll.
I would set the parking brake and have someone watch the shift lever on the transmission to see if it and the shifter inside is still connected.

1999 chevy cavalier transmission won't shift into


1999 cavelier manual trans: My son was shifting his manual trans really rough (ramming through the gears to try to beat someone out at a light) and ended up not being able to put it into anything but 3 and 4 (straight up and down). We noticed that the shifter cable, that actuates the position of the arm on the transmission, had pulled away from a "c" clip and was not held into place about 8-10 inches down the cable away from the trans. The cable needs to be secured into that clip in order to let the wire inside move the trans. lever to shift. Otherwise you will be stuck on what ever "rail" your trans is on at the time of disconnection. It would be the first thing that I would check.

How to install a transmission shift cable in a 2000 Cavalier


    • 1 Take the rubber boot off the gear shift inside the vehicle and lift it up, exposing the area where the gear shift and the transmission connect.
    • 2 Look for the shift cable and the shifting arm. A single bolt and nut connect the shift cable and shift arm.
    • 3 Twist the nut connecting the gear shift and the transmission. Use a socket wrench and remove the gear shift. Use an open-end wrench to loosen the nut holding the shift cable and the shift arm together.
    • 4 Slide off the sleeve on the shift cable and loosen the shift cable at the other end with an open-end wrench. Both ends of the shifting cable attach to the shifting arm in different locations.
    • 5 Hitch the new shift cable to the 2 anchor points on the shift arm using the same bolts and nuts. Reconnect the gear shift to the transmission and push the rubber boot back into place around the gear shift inside the car.
    • 6 Test the functionality of the shifting cable by moving the gear shift in and out of gear.

My chevy cavalier back lights wont come on i put new sockets and bulbs...what seems to be the problem and how do i fix the problem myself


Either the back-up switch is bad or needs adjusting. It's pretty much when you put your car in reverse, it makes a switch which makes your back-up lights come on. Not sure about yours, but some are located under the gear shift console when the gear shift is moved it will then make the switch, and some are on the transmission. I would try adjusting the switch first, which the car will have to be in reverse to get the lights to come on. It can be a little dangerous, but make sure the car it secured and someone is helping you. Gear shift in reverse, with someone holding the brakes while the switch is adjusted. It hard to explain this process, but wish you luck in fixing it.
