Question about 1996 Chevrolet G10

1 Answer

1995 Chevy g10 van with 4.3l v6 not sure what transmission. It wont shift out of park. Disconnected the shift linkage at the outside of the transmission. Linkage works fine. Tried to move shift rod with a wrench, still locked solid. Dropped the oil pan to have a look see. What a pita! If I ever catch a gm engineer in a dark alley...oh boy look out. I'm guessing I gotta disassemble filter and valve body. What next?

Check your brake lights, do they work? If not then you have found the problem, the little electric solenoid that unlocks the shifter is power off the brake light circuit, no brake lights no shift possible out of park position.

Loosen the bolt thats on the trans that holds the linkage on..Some one may have tightened it to much..Or grab a hold of it and see if it is sloppy and moves around..If so its loose inside trans..Another possible cause the linkage from column to trans may be binding up when trying to shift..Hope this helps you and Have A Great Night

SOURCE: WIPER LINKAGE BROKEN OR DISCONNECTED HELP

had the same problem on my 97. your going to have to take off the cowl covers. to do that youll have to remove your wiper arms.

where the arms connect to the car there should be a little circle centercap looking thing, that just pops off with a flathead screw driver. theres a bolt behind that, match it up with the correct socket and remove that. put the arms in the up position as if your cleaning your windsheild, this releases the tension of the arms on the shaft there sitting on. then simply wiggle them loose until they come off.

the cowl covers are the black covers between the back of the hood and the windshield, there should be a few plastic rivets holding them in place, drill those out which is very simple doesnt take a strong drill, then remove the weather strip from the base of them underneath the hood which will just pull out, then remove the covers and youll be able to see the motor and all linkages. mine broke where the motor connects to the links in the middle. get the part from the dealer not a wrecker, reason being is that these cars had a recall on them for a bad seal, what happens is that water gets in the balljoint like seal forces the grease out and causes the links to seperate. the dealer has the corrected parts the wrecker may not. vice grip needle nose pliers work best for attaching the links, then install everything the reverse of removal, youll also need to get replacement plastic rivets for those cowl covers its cheaper to get those from car quest should only cost you 2 bucks. best of luck, takes about 1 1/2 hrs to do depening on where the link broke.

if the links arent broke your motor is probably bad.

Transmission problems


Hello Joel Gilmore,

When last a car abused me in such a way it was a broken
shift cable... I checked (assuming the 3.4L V6) if you had cable or linkage... and it appears you have actuator linkage (f/Rock-Auto)...

AFTER MAKING SURE YOUR WHEELS ARE PROPERLY
BLOCKED/SECURED... Totally immobilized... do a visual on the linkage to your transmission...

Else... the trouble will be from the shift-servos inside.

BBB Industries (FREE: Registration required)...
to check for Technical SERVICE BULLETINS on your vehicle... You have 105 TSBs on file...!!!

Hope this helps.

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

How to replace the shift linkage in the pontiac montana van


On that van, like many other GM front-wheel-drive vehicles, the shift cable goes through a bracket on the transmission to the linkage( the little metal arm). Where the cable connects to the linkage, there is a ball stud. It takes quite a bit of force to disconnect the cable from that. If it became disconnected at that ball without any other outside influence, the shift cable may need to be replaced. You can try pushing the plastic end of the shift cable back on to that ball stud ,it should click into place.
If the ball stud became disconnected from the linkage(little metal arm), the linkage would need to be replaced.
There should be a locknut holding the linkage to the transmission stud right above the range selector switch. If it came loose of there, you may need a new linkage, and to replace that nut

My friends 94 V6 camaro wont shift out of park. THe linkage moves on the transmission when moving thru the gears but the car wont go into gear??


If you have the car up in the air, with the wheels off the ground, and the motor is running, and you manually move the shifting lever on the outside of the transmission, and you still get no response, you will be having the transmission taken apart because the problem is inside, as long as the transmission fluid its full on the transmission dipstick.
Be blessed.

Gear stick will not move from park !


Make sure you car is actually in PARK, Easy to do, Just disengage the parking brake (emergency brake) and attempt to push your car both forward and reverse to ensure your car isnt in neutral. If you cant budge the vehicle your good to go! If it rolls forward it may be in neutral or a forward gear. if it rolls backwards it may be in neutral or reverse. If it rolls both directions its in neutral. On that note if it moves at all skip to the third step (***) and make sure the transmissions shift bracket is in the park possition. Depending on your cars transmission model the parking gear is located all the way left to the farthest possition or all the way right to the farthest possition) One direction will put you in Park, the other in will put you in 1st gear, If your in 1st gear the linkage should be too far away from the shift plate to connect if your column says you are in park. DO NOT ATTEMPT TO START YOUR CAR WHILE IT IS IN A DRIVE GEAR AND THE LINKAGE IS DISCONNECTED IF YOU ARE ABLE TO START YOUR CAR IN ITS CURRENT STATE DO NOT MOVE THE TRANSMISSIONS SHIFT BRACKET UNTIL LATER IN THIS INSTRUCTIONAL!!!!!

* Floor shift automatic, the push pin lever (located inside your shifter/gear stick) may be malfunctioning. You have to pop the grip off and inspect the white plastic pin inside the shaft to see if it is damaged, also check inside the grip while you press the safety release (shift lock button) to ensure the internal slide mechanics are propperly working). Also check for anything obstructing the levers movement inside the floor housing.

** Column Shift. Make sure your pull pin lock is working properly (disengages the shift lock when you pull back the gear shift before you select a gear) if its broke theres two possible behaviors you'll experiance -1. You cant pull the gear shift back at all or -2. No effort or less than normal effot is required to pull back the gear shift. If all that checks out then you have to inspect the steering column linkage bar (you may have to remove some of the steering column housing to view it. Make sure the bar isn't bent or that its movement isnt obstructed.

***Automatic Transmission Linkage Check - Look under the kick panel located above the gas and brake pedals.........Once linkage is located under the dash (kick panel) disconnect it and try the gear shift. If the cable moves under the dash then reconnect it and move on to the next step.
Now block the wheels and climb under the car and disconnect the linkage from the transmission and have someone work the gear shift while you see if the cable is operating propperly, if the linkage moves (as it should) then try shifting the transmission back and fourth by hand while the linkage is disconnected., If the shift bracket feels stiff or is dirty clean it off with non corosive chemicals so you dont damage any seals. If the bracket operates smoother go ahead and reconnect the linkage and try shifting with the column again. Be sure to move the shift bracket back to the park position and make sure your shifter column is in park as well before you reconnect the linkage, if you dont you are sure to run into more issues.

Hope this helps you out! If all the mentioned area's above are in working order then your problem is with the car's transmission and you should take it to a speciallist.

My chevy aveo won't go into gear. The gear shift says you are in Drive but the car acts as if it is in park


Most likely the shifter cable broke or became disconnected. Have someone shift the car (engine off, parking brake on) while someone else watches the transmisssion linkage to see if it moves. If it does move there is an internal transmission problem if it doesn't it is just a problem with the cable.

To be honest with you Jeeps are notoriuse for their transmission problems.Most likely you have a shift solonoid in the transmission bad. I would have it checked before it gets worse to try and prevent internal problems.

Good Luck and I hope this helps you.
