Yes. It sounds like the linkage. It might be low oil (automatic transmission) or a problem inside the transmission but not likely. The linkage for standard transmissions is easy to re-attach. For automatics there is a cable on the steering column that goes to the transmission. The vacuum modulator is mounted on the transmission and has a vacuum hose running to the carburetor.

I installed a complete clutch & Flywheel. I popped outta 1st gear & won't go into any gear whatsoever. Linkage & slave cylinder work! feels like it's going into gear but when i let clutch out nothing


Isolate the problem. Sound like clutch is stuck and not disengaging. Engine off put in gear and rock the vehicle,, with help from a friend press clutch pedal while in gear and have friend push, you will know if the tranny is ok and clutch is stuck. Now check the clutch, slave etc for engagment and disengagment / Clutch linkage- movement/travel may need adjustment or you have something wrong in the reassembly..

Why does my transfer case pop out of gear when I am in four wheel drive?


Have you checked the engine and transmission mounts?? If these are loose they could easily shift causing the linkage to kick it into another gear.

Most of these I have seen were Electronically shifted, if that is the case you might have a sensor problem in the cab, or a wiring issue.

My 2000 ford focus wont shift. Its not the transmission because I can shift it manually a the transmission. Could this be the linkage?


I think your shifter cable broke go back to the linkage at the trans and find the bracket the cable attaches to and try to pull the cable through if you can it broke that's why I think the shifter lever is now all over the place also go to the bottom off the steering column it may have just come loose at the bracket inside the car good luck Adam you'll find it Stephen

Acting like it doesn't want to go into gear


Well i got a camry same engine I am getting my car checked this Friday because it feels loose on 2nd and 4th gears. I might end up with the same problem if I fail to get it repaired through payday advance. I'll let you know I checked my linkage and everything seems to be ok .. There is no looseness. But shifting into second gear you cant feel it ... I'll post it up when I manage to find out..Thanks for your patience.

When i try to put it in park it takes it at times. i have to start it on neutral at times. it feels to smooth when i try to sift the gear.


Two possible causes could be a bad neutral safety switch (enables the vehicle to start in only Park or Neutral) or the transmission linkage may need adjusting. If you feel significant "play" in the gear shift (from what you described, it appears to have a lot of play) the linkage will need to be adjusted to get the gear shift to "lock in" to the individual gears instead of sliding.

Was shifting from 2nd to 3rd gear when shift lever got loose,chould not shift into any gear,seems like it is stuck in 1st now.Feels like I still have clutch,could it be something in the linkage


Sounds like you broke your linkage. It's not as bad as it sounds. It's a cable, or a small plastic part. It will be expensive to have a shop do it. Try to get help from a friend.

When i shift it feels loose like its not grabbing


its the gear linkage falling apart, or just about to fall off, get under the car and have a look at the gear box linkage keep the brakes hard on and get some body to go through the gears for you, if its just hanging off find a way to put it back on again there normaly held on by a spring clips if its poped off thats the problem

Gear link or box problem


Sounds like a piece of linkage came loose. If it were an internal tranny problem, doubtful that the stick would be loose. Examine all linkage for something very obvious.

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.
