SOURCE: cannot shift properly

My Saturn did the same thing - twice. Where the clutch cables connects to the shifter box(??) there is a little clip that had fallen off. The first time this happened, the mechanic told me that I needed to replace the whole shifter box - costing me $400 dollars. The second time - about two years later a different mechanic charged me $15 for the clip and labor.

You will have to pull the steering column apart to find out what part is worn out.

SOURCE: manual shift will not engage in gears

hi from uk just out of curiosity ? with engine off try selecting a gear manually by moving the selector link at gearbox from engine compartment if you can feel a selection ? then press clutch and start engine see if car moves with clutch slowly engaged ? if it does? then would suspect the actual g/stick vertical part that fits into the cables gate/selection has broken ? come back with update ? and please give history prior to this fault occuring ?as it would give more of idea what may have gone wrong ?

SOURCE: My shifter dropped down and I cant figure out what happend. It still shifts, but I have to pull up on the shifter to change gear. I cant find what holds the shifter in place as I dont have a manual.

The shifter bushings are broken, requires (4). You will have to take the console out to see what needs done. You can fix it without them if you are a little mechanical. You will see when you get the console out. Here is a good source for the parts: http://www.midcomustang.com/

Here is a good online manual in pdf format: http://www.techcapri.com/Repair/Capri_Service_Manual.htm

If you don't feel confident enough to tackle this, any good shop could do this job within a few hours time.

Will not shift into park.


Does the shifter feel loose or sloppy?
Are all other gears indicating correct and in there correct location?
How about manual 1st gear is it only operating 1st gear and the shifter is actually able to get down to 1st?

I believe you are going to find your shift linkage is loose at the base of the steering column where the shift cable attached to the shifter tube. there are 2 T30 torx screws there which often come loose and cause this concern. You can access this by laying upside down in the floor board. it is very tight and painful but possible. Check this and let me know.

2000 sable- can't shift out of park. shifter glides and needle on dash moves there's no gears shifting. is the transmission blown?


Not likely a blown transmission. More of a shifter cable issue. There is an adjustment nut on the ****** end. It could be loose or missing. If the nut is fine you have a broken cable.

The manual transmission gear shift is loose and stuck in first gear. The shifter is wobbly and appears to be loose. The gear shifter linkage bad/broke? How do I get to it?


take out the console, look on youtube for videos of others doing this. most likely you are going to need a saturn shifter bushing repair kit which you can get on ebay for less than 20 bucks.

Automatic shift lever won't shift the truck into gear we can shift it manually underneath the truck into gear but the lever isn't shifting the linkage


the linkage has slipped and is not in the notch on the shift lever so slide he shift lever into place then tighten the bolt down so it will hold the shifter on the trasnmisson, this is caused by a loose nut on the shifter nut.

Shift lever is loose and will not go into gear


If it is an Automatic, there is only one cable that goes to the transmission. If it is a manual, there should be two. You will have to disconnect the cable from under the hood, and see if the levers are loose there. If they are, it might be as simple as tightening them back down. If not, the trans may need a rebuild.

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.
