Follow shifter cable from firewall to steering column. You will find a plate that attaches with bolts to a spring/rod assembly (test by moving shifter while observing.) Tighten the bolts and you should be back in business.

2004 Saturn vue will reverse but no forward?


check the Shifter cables they break. You have to remove center console surround to make sure cables are still attached. Very common problem of eyelets breaking. The shifter should feel sloppy. If shifter feels tight, the transmission may be bad

What, is wrong with my suv. It is a automatic. My gear shifter on the steering wheel seems as if it is broke. It moves across the gears but wont go into reverse,drive,neutral,?


it probably did the gear selector has a cable attached to it that runs down to transmission --the cable can become disconnected [plastic clips]due to age wear or damaged by debris look under vehicle and check cable and connector also check the connection at the column

Shift lever repair


Most likely the shift cable that connects the shifter to the transmission if you can find where it connects to the transmission check there first sometimes they can get disconnected. then if your shifter is in the center console take the cover off and make sure shifter is still connected to cable. If that's not the problem and the cable is moving at the transmission then it's a problem inside the transmission

My 2000 ford focus wont shift. Its not the transmission because I can shift it manually a the transmission. Could this be the linkage?


I think your shifter cable broke go back to the linkage at the trans and find the bracket the cable attaches to and try to pull the cable through if you can it broke that's why I think the shifter lever is now all over the place also go to the bottom off the steering column it may have just come loose at the bracket inside the car good luck Adam you'll find it Stephen

Sloppy gear shifter on 94 ford e150 van how do i fix it


I can only hope it is not the same as a '94 car!
I just completed the repairs on a 94 Ford car, and on it, here is what we found.
The shift linkage is inside the steering column.
There are 2 black nylon/plastic bushings that wear out, and when they do, the shifting gets sloppy first, and then the silly thing falls apart, and you get stuck in gear!
You have to remove the steering wheel and the steering column to fix this, but it is not really hard to do so.
Be blessed as you find your answers.

My 1998 ford explorer shift is funny.


If the shifter is sloppy there is a piece that comes loose but usualy breaks under the dash where the shifter cable hooks up the the sterring column. It is a tube that runs from the shifter handle to the cable. Ford will sell you 2-3 pieces, but first get under there and look for lots of play. It may not even put the trans in park if its really loose. You must remove the whole column to fix it. Hope this helps.

My saab 900 se t. 96 wont go into reverse and the shifter is very sloppy


I am not a mechanic, although I have worked on cars in the past' I think by your description, the problem lies in you linkage between the shifter and transmission.

1995 crown vic gear problems/gear shift wont lock


if the shifter is loose and sloppy feeling then the shift cable bracket has come loose under the dash at the steering wheel. remove the lower panel under the steering wheel so you can see under the dash then get flash light and look while jiggling the shifter. you should be able to see the cable and bracket. if the bracket is loose then tighten the bolts. note this bracket is at the steering colum.
