1994 Pontiac Grand Prix SE 3.1L V6 DOHC Vehicle cannot be shifted into Park or First Gear. What could be the diagnosis?


If you can't move the shifter into PARK OR FIRST GEAR manually I would say you need to adjust the cable shifter. Try to move the shifter while someone looks at the transmissions cable underhood and see if the cable move normally and not out of the adjustment lock.
1- At the transmission end cable unhooks the cable from the transmission.
2- Try to move the transmission's selector manually from Park to
D1.
3- If you cannot move the selector then your problem is inside the transmissions.
4- If you can move normally the selector then you have to adjust the cable.

Transmission will not engage any gear except park


-Make sure transmission fluid is full.
-Make sure shift linkage is hook up to transmission shift handle
or safety switch. And ask some one to watch for you when shift to "D" or other position. Is it move or not. If Not then the cable is loose or broken. If it move but car no move at all then it time for new transmission.

Good luck

My 1998 Pontiac grand am's igniton willnot shut all the way off.


Two main reasons for this:

1. Dead battery - hook up jumper cables and try to turn off. Replace battery.
2. Transmission does not think the car is in Park. YOu can try to roll the car forward and slam into Park, not a real fix but may work for a while. Take to transmission shop to adjust linkage and/or replace switch.

The gear shifter handle moves but the van stays in park . The gear shifter handle on the steering colum, will move up and down very loosely. The indicater for park, reverse, neutral, and drive will move to...


there is a cable attached to your transmission that is actuated with that lever. the cable has come disconected or has broken. open your hood and look for cable on top of your transmission to see if it is worn.broken ect. helps to have somebody move lever while u locate it if you are not sure what you are looking for.

Same as above. Shifter moves but stays in park!!


Likely the shift cable has broken or become disconnected. Move the shifter and watch the control arm on the transmission to see if it moves. If not, check/ replace the cable.

1998 Pontiac Grand Prix shuts down in Drive or Reverse


When you remove your vehicle from park, the idle air control valve (electronic choke) operates to keep enough air going into the motor while you aren't using the throttle so it will stay running. If it is too dirty it can't move properly...you'll stall.
Pull out and clean or replace the idle air control valve.

When i try to move my 1998 chevy cavalier from park to drive, it either stops at neutral or stays stuck on reverse or park, but the lever still moves back and forth it just wont shift gears.


Checked the cable from the shifter to the transmission? They often stretch or break & become difficult to move Or fail to move lever on transmission properly.
