Automatic 1996 Pontiac Bonneville wont shift gears


Transmissions have so many parts so it's difficult to diagnose. I would have the transmission filter changed first. Usually that is the most common shifting problem. If that doesn't fix the problem it may be a little more costly.

Check the cable under the gear lever. Look for broken pin or missing pin joining the lever to the cable

take the console out and look under the shifter, if the shifter cables are disconnected from the shifter go to a parts store or ebay and get yourself a Saturn shifter bushing repair kit. happens all the time to S Saturns and maybe the Ls look on youtube for instructions to remove console and put on the bushing kit.

if the shifter cables are still connected you may have to be looking around for a lower mileage used transmission. 96-98 saturn will fit so long as the donor car has the same head, being DOHC or SOHC. so if you have an SL1 you can use a transmission out of another SL1, or an SC1, or an SW1. do not mix a 2 with a 1, bad mojo.

I have a 2004 ford explorer xlt the gear shift broke when i went to put it on drive...how is that possible???


hello! will try to assist! you may have a broken shifter cable.when you turn the key to 'on' or 'start' the shifter just moves sloppy,or easily. right? thats a sign of broken shifter cable.i have a 1994 explorer 4x4 there is a shifter cable to your transmission,sometimes they break. the cable will need to be replaced. you can purchase new or used,but if you're going to keep the truck,buy it new. the older fords had a metal linkage to the transmission,without the push button 4x4 option. the new ones have a cable shifter,just another way to get into our pocket book. try this with 2 people [for safety] put your emergency brake on,turn key switch on. have someone,or you,look under the driverside of truck up at the transmission shifter cable to see if it's moving on the side of the transmission.whoevers setting in the drivers seat will have to move the shifter from park to low,with the emergency brake on so the truck does'nt move or their foot on the brake,that works too. just make sure your safe as the truck cannot move while the person's shifting the gears while you look under the truck for shifter movement on the transmission.if no movement on the transmission while the gears are shifted,the cables broken. there,i went through the steps to insure your safety,and to give you a solution. just always be safe when you're under or around a vehicle that you're trying to repair.remember this always!the vehicle can be replaced,you can not! thank you for choosing fixya com and i look forward to assisting you in the future.

1997 XK8 Transmission Failure. Will 2001 XK8 transmission work


I had a similar problem with my 1997 XK8. Apparently the transmission will not last much more than 100,000 miles. You need to replace the clutch in the transmission - cost between $2,500 and $4,000.

Did you adjust the shift rods from the shifter to the trans shift arms. Take your shift rods loose and put shifter in neutral, and transmission arms in neutral, then adjust the rods so they slide in. Then your shifter matches your transmission and you should be able to shift just fine.
