Take out the console, look on youtube for videos of others doing this. most likely you are going to need a saturn shifter bushing repair kit which you can get on ebay for less than 20 bucks.

1988 Dodge Ram 50 Automatic shifts into park reverse and neutral. But physically won't go into drive gears.


Disconnect shift cable from transmission linkage and try to manually put transmission in drive gear ( make sure wheels chocked/park brake on ). If transmission goes into drive gear, suspect a shift cable or shifter assembly problem. If you can't manually shift into drive gear by hand with cable disconnected, suspect internal transmission/shift linkage issue

My T45 transmission is stuck in first gear and bogs down when I shift it to reverse


It appears this is a 5 speed manual transmission. There may be shift linkage problems between the shift lever and transmission. also bushings. I strongly recommend a repair manual specificly for this transmission. possibly filespeep.com or manualslib.com

Transmission only has 3rd and 4th gear. Lost 1,2,5, and reverse going down the road. Tried to shift into 5th and it went back into 3rd. No clunk no knock, didn't even notice a noise. The shifter went...


It sounds like you might have a bad busing in your shift linkage. The run from the bottom of your shifter to the transmission check those bushings and make sure that everything is in place under your shifter. Hope that helps you.
