Call your exPontiac dealer Buicks share a lot of parts with Pontiac, call the parts department an see if they have a fix, I imagine you'll have to buy a whole new cable. You can try a bone yard but you'll end up with the same thing eventually.

Automatic gear shift in 94 toyota tercel stuck


what is stuck?

the linkage or the cable from the shifter to the trans.?

block the tires so the car can not roll away...
open the hood and remove the cable from the shifter on the transmission.
see if you can manualy move the shifter on the trans.
if that moves... you may need to replace the cable (shift linkage)

Shifter very loose


Hi and welcome to fixya,

You'll need to replace the shift linkages to make shifting tighter on the notch. Shift linkages are like ball joints that permit forward and backward movements on the rods connected to the transmission box. If these joints come loose, you'll get a "shaky" shift response and often times a very long throw during shifting.

Replace the joints with the same type, align it and you'll be surprised how your shifter is all back to factory setting again.

hope this helps

I have a stick shift car. the shifter came loose today. i took apart the console, and found where the shifter attached to a rod that lets it change gears. but, i can't figure out how to reattach it. it...


What you speak of is called a hiem joint. There has to be a sleeve or ring still on the trans rod the holds the ball in the socket. Look on the shift rod and see is it still there. If yes, pop the ball back in the socket and the ring back in on the ball, Find out what holds the ring in against the ball and fix that.

Shifter linkage came apart from transmission shift arm


I had the same problem and also linkage inside the car. I took ball joint apart and cleaned the surface then put silicone inside ball joint. Joined the two together then I put plastic tie wraps for wiring around the ball joints, two per ball joint. Let sit for 24 hours and it worked. It is probably temporary but it got me out of a $165 an hour repair job 500 miles from home. Hope this works for you as it tightens up the linkage and worked great. CW

Manual transmission shifter will not engage


Sounds to me that the shifter broke, i believe the shifter has a ball end that slips into a pocket in trans. that moves for gear selection and that ball brook off end of shifter. if its got a linkage set up most likely samething either shifting arms came off or shifter broke where linkage rods connect.

The gear linkage will have popped off at the gearbox. Look down the back of the gearbox, have a fish around and you should find a connecting rod loose and flopping around. Look for the ball joint it connects to and replace. A tip is just before you reconnect the rod back onto the ball joint, wrap the ball joint with a small piece of plastic bag, this will take up the play, and allow you to get home. I would recommend buying a new rod.
