Likely you have a shift control module malfunction. Module is probably on the right side fender in the engine compartment. Check to see if you have one (some do and some dont... go figure...I've got a 91 & 95... I have about five different diagrams and NONE apply to my vehicles)

SOURCE: 1982 rabbit shift linkage

There is a plastic ball that is in the shift linkage that also wears and is usually not included in the shift linkage bushing kit. It is attached to a metal piece and is bolted to the shift linkage. This is generally the problem if you already replaced the bushings.

Sometimes the linkage is out of adjustment but I would make sure that the ball is not worn first. They generally cost $5.00 - $8.00 or so.

If you need to adjust the linkage you can try the following, but if the bushings or the ball is worn adjustment will not do any good.

There is an adjustment on the shift rod that goes from the shifter to the transmission. It is a rod slipped into a tube with a locking collar or clamp.

The way that I do this is to make sure that your vehicle is in 1st gear and then loosen the bolt on the clamp.

Make sure that the clamp is loose enough so that the shaft can slip in the tube. Put the shifter in the 1st gear position and then tighten the clamp.

You may need to fiddle with this a little to get it in just the right spot.

This is much easier if you have an assistant.

SOURCE: shifter linkage came apart from transmission shift arm

I had the same problem and also linkage inside the car. I took ball joint apart and cleaned the surface then put silicone inside ball joint. Joined the two together then I put plastic tie wraps for wiring around the ball joints, two per ball joint. Let sit for 24 hours and it worked. It is probably temporary but it got me out of a $165 an hour repair job 500 miles from home. Hope this works for you as it tightens up the linkage and worked great. CW

How do I fix a loose shifter


If the shifter is very sloppy, making it hard to find the gears, bushings in the shift rod have gone bad. Buy shift rod bushings from NAPA, like $1.50 each, you need 4. Get under the car, and see the bolts holding the rod in place, one under the shifter, one near the transmission. Remove those bolts, install the bushings, 2 on each bolt, put it back together, and you should be good to go.

1st 3rd and 5th gears are spongy to shift into


Start with the firs post and have those cables and linkage assembly looked at if those are good then what you have is a loose bolt on the transmission that bolt is responsible to keep the gear in place when loose the transmission will do what you described as well nothing more nothing less.

Shift Linkage for 1991 Mercury is loose


Your shifter bushings are worn out. Very easy fix. You can get shifter bushings from NAPA for about $2 ea, you need 4 of them. Drive the car onto ramps. Under the car there is a long rod that connects the shifter to the transmission. Unbolt the part connected to the shifter, remove old bushings (if they are still there), install new. Same for the where the shift rod connects to the transmission. 30 minute job, and it will shift great...Chris

I need a diagram of strut rod bushings for a 95 honda accord


sorry dont have a diagram here is a how to

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable. If equipped with an air bag, properly disable the Supplemental Restraint System (SRS), as detailed in Chassis Electrical .
  2. Elevate and safely support the front of the car.
  3. Remove the wheel.
  4. Loosen the nut at the rear of the radius rod. Remove the nut, washers, bushing, etc. Keep them in the correct order for reinstallation.
  5. Remove the bolts securing the rod to the control arm. Remove the rod.

To install:

  1. Inspect the bushings carefully for wear or deformation. Replace them if any damage is found.
  2. Fit the rod into place and install the bolts at the control arm. Tighten the bolts to 40 ft. lbs. (55 Nm) on Accords through 1989 and Preludes through 1991. On 1990-95 Accords and 1992-95 Preludes, tighten the bolts to 76 ft. lbs. (105 Nm).
  3. Install the bushings, washers and spacers on the rod. Install a new locking nut. On all except 1992-95 Preludes, tighten the end nut to 33 ft. lbs. (44 Nm). On 1992-95 Preludes, tighten the nut to 40 ft. lbs. (55 Nm).
  4. Install the wheels and lower the vehicle.
  5. Properly enable the SRS system, if equipped, and connect the negative battery cable.

I have a 94 saturn sl straight shift, the shifter dont catch gear it just moves around freely. what could be the problem?


If the shifter cable has broken (specifically the plastic loop) you can replace it with a new one from Ebay. Just look up "Saturn Bushing Man" and select the Shifter Cable Eyelet loop. It is a part that is $25 plus shipping. It is an easy fix. The other possibility is that the shifter bushing has broken. "Saturn Bushing Man" on ebay also sells a Delron Plastic Replacement or a Stainless Steel Shifter bushing replacement. Either of these will work as well and are only a $29 part. I have owned Saturns since 1997 and I had both of these parts go out on my 94 Saturn SL2.

I have a 1993 Volvo 240, the shifter is loose, I


i have owned several 240's (i drive a 1990 245 at the moment) and have had this problem in the past. it is not a bolt that you have to replace, it is the shifter-link bushings and the c-clip on the bottom of the shifter-link. if you jack your car up and place the jack stands at the front jack points so you can scout underneath the car. at the front end of the transmission (where the O.D. selanoid wire comes out of the body) is the shifterlink and in the shifter-link should be 3 holes (there should be 3 bushings in there and a c-clip keeping it all together), replace the c-clip and bushings and i promise that your shifter will be VERY TIGHT. good luck :)

I can't shift into first or second gear of my 1996 SC1 Saturn. What is the problem?


Assuming this is a manual transmission, most likely the bushing which connects the shifter to the shifter cable has gone bad. Pull the boot around the shifter up and take a look. These are available on ebay and you can install them yourself, assuming you have basic tools. Common Saturn problem, most likely find a how to a video on youtube.
