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.

5 spd manual trans, shifter doesn't have enough side to side movement to actuate 1st & 2nd gears. Shifter may be at fault? Bushings all seem intact at cable ends. It's the Lt cable that controls the...


Check the busings on BOTH ends of the shifter cables. First check underneath the center console that your bushing didn't break and cause your shifter to be limp and not move anywhere. This is a very common problem and can be remedied permanently by getting the delrin bushing found on ebay.

Next, if the above is fine, check the clips on the shifter side under the hood. There are 4 clips. Two hold the cable ends to the tower and slide horizontally. The other two hold the cables onto the transmission and slide on vertically. Sometimes these clips fall off and makes the shifter inoperable.

Finally if all of the above checks out the last possibility is that your shifter tower metal tab that the shifter cables attaches to is broken and sliding instead of pushing or pulling. This happened to my car but is not likely as my manual was in a raced Saturn previously so wear from that most likely caused it to break.

2002 Mazda Tribute. Gear shifter seems stripped. When taken out of park, it shifts straight down and not into any gear. Is this a part I can buy and fix myself or do I need a mechanic? If so, how much...


If you have some mechanical ability you should be able to check and repair the problem. First thing you need to do is to set parking brake and block wheels(for safety). Now remove the cover for the shifter and make sure you can see the end of the shifter and watch as you move the shifter does the shift cale move. This is where your problem most likely lies, the shift cable is most likely broken. If you find that the cable is not moving. You can also check this by looking at the transmission and seeing if the linkage moves, that way you don't have to take the shifter apart. That way if you don't want to try it at least you will know that it is the cable. That is usually what happens.

Gear shift difficulty moving/gear shift stuck in 1st gear


First of all, I need to know whether you will be working on a lift or on jack stands as this will determine if you will just drop the transmission or have to pull the entire engine and then pull the transmission.

Heres what you should do before getting started.

1. Get a Haynes manual from the local AutoZone or any autoparts store.
2. Get to know your local Dodge 5 star dealer phone number as it will be helpful on quick on the fly questions if you need to talk to a mechanic or need to order parts.

Once you answer my first question, then I will let you know where to start, the haynes manual will also be very helpful with pictures while you are working if you get stuck.
