You sure the mounts for the transmission are all in place if not this will cause the motor and transmission to shift not allowing the cable to connect properly. I have seen this mistake many times from various mechanics.

Try cleaning the throttle body and butterfly plate. If that doesnt work, replace the IAC (idle air control) motor.

Saturn shifter cable


They have replacment shift linkage bushings on ebay, but a bit pricey. The bushing can be a Easy fix though if you have tools and time.
1st drill out the ball at the end of the linkage, this is the one your broken bushing use to ride on. Place a 3/8 inch bolt thru the drilled hole. Slide a piece of 3/8 inch heater hose over the bolt ( this is what the linkage ring rides on ) put a rubber gromet or rubber washer that has a hole big enough to fit over the heater hose on each side of the linkage ring ( oh and dont forget the lube - regular grease will eat rubber so use good judgement). put a washer big enough to keep your gromet or rubber washer from falling off, and then a lock nut, and I cannot stress the fact that it has to be a lock nut. DO NOT tighten the living **** out of everything, that little linkage ring is plastic after all just tighten it "lightly snugish" and just make sure your lock nut can't be un-tightened by hand. I hope all of this makes sense, anyway total repair cost- one hour of my time, about $4 of parts at the local auto parts store

1991 Ford F150 won't shift into park or reverse. Will go into neutral and drive, and the linkage at the transmission moves ok


The linkage may be out of adjustment preventing the shifter from moving into reverse or park.
One way to test this is to disconnect the linkage and manually move the lever on the transmision making sure that it can be set into park. Also try moving the lever counting each click from park to low gear to make sure it is clicking into each gear. If this works then the linkage is probably out of adjustment.
On the link cable there is typically a bolt in an oval shaped metal near the transmission shift lever.
1)Detach the shift cable from the transmission shift lever
2)Put the transmision shift lever in the park position, and also the shifter in the cab
3)Loosen the adjustment bolt
4)Reattach the cable to the lever
5)Tighten the adjustment bolt in place
6)Confirm that you can shift through all of the gears
Hope this helps

In Cold weather my 2001 Chevy Cavalier died frequently?


Check the throttle linkage at the throttle body look for anything that could be binding the linkage up and preventing the throttle from closing, (ie something getting caught in there) if thats ok, the cable could be starting to fray inside it's sheath and binding up the throttle as well or could be kinked. if thats the case, a new throttle cable is needed. Also besure that the cruise wasnt on and you didnt engage the cruise by accident.

96 cavalier driver power window dont go up


Spray silicone (lots) down along the guides (where felt is ) at the ends and see if that doesn't help. Try to work it up and down a few times.
