Simple, you take the round end of the shifter cable and place it over the linkage bar on the transmition, apply presure and it should pop right on.

How difficult is it to change the shifter cable


1

Take the rubber boot off the gear shift inside the vehicle and lift it up, exposing the area where the gear shift and the transmission connect.
2

Look for the shift cable and the shifting arm. A single bolt and nut connect the shift cable and shift arm.

3

Twist the nut connecting the gear shift and the transmission. Use a socket wrench and remove the gear shift. Use an open-end wrench to loosen the nut holding the shift cable and the shift arm together.
4

Slide off the sleeve on the shift cable and loosen the shift cable at the other end with an open-end wrench. Both ends of the shifting cable attach to the shifting arm in different locations.
5

Hitch the new shift cable to the 2 anchor points on the shift arm using the same bolts and nuts. Reconnect the gear shift to the transmission and push the rubber boot back into place around the gear shift inside the car.
6

Test the functionality of the shifting cable by moving the gear shift in and out of gear.

Sounds like you need a new shift cable. Remove the shift cable from the linkage on the transmission. If the transmission linkage moves freely back into the park position and the shift lever inside the car still will not move back into park than the cable is bad. If the transmission shift linkage will not move back into park with the cable removed than the transmission will need to be pulled apart to service the shift rod.

Sounds like the cable has shifted, from the gear lever to the transmission there is a cable that puts the transmission in the correct gear. this cable is adjustable where it bolts onto the transmission and has probably moved

98 twn and country van trans slips into reverse and first gear when its cold. Is there a simple fixx


There is probably a problem with the cable and/or cable connection/shifting bracket to the transmission. It is located on the top of the transmission. With a Partner: have them turn the key to the on (not start) position and have them shift to each of the PRNDL positions.
Meanwhile YOU: Inspect that area to ensure nothing is impeding the cable/cable connection/shifting bracket, or interfering their operation.
When shifting, is the Indicator "on" or to the left or right of the appropriate selection (PRNDL)? If the indicator is to the left or right of them there is a good possibility that you need to loosen the gear cable connection, located on top of the transmission and pull the shifting bracket going into the transmission - towards the front of the car. While holding the bracket to the front (Park) position tighten back down the cable fasteners.
Let me know if this helped, or if you have additional questions or information. Feel free to contact me at FixYa.com!

Try shifting into Neutral and attempt to Start the car.

My 1994 chevy 1500 wont go into gear, i can move the shift lever around but it acts like its in park. it happend this morning, i backed out of my parking spot then shifted into park for a second, after...


Soounds like the shop that did the work did not install the shift cable back onto the transmission fullky and it popped off. Look under the truck, drivers side, and you may see a cable dangling. If so that needs to be reconnected to the post on the transmission shift selector on the transmission.it should pop on with a solid push.
