Does it go into drive fine and then shifts funny then i would be looking to replace the shift selenoids instead of the cable. They are easy to fix. Drop the trans pan and they are right there. They are not expensive. Change the filter while you are at it also. This may fix your problem. If you are talking about shifting it into gear then your problem may be in the colum. Disconect the cable and try shifting it to see if it is stiff.

I have an 04 Chevy cavalier. It was driving just fine but last night I went to leave and the gear shift wouldn't go in gear.. It. Just slides back and fourth.


Sounds like the cable broke. Where shifter is, The bezel around the shifter pops off. You can get it high enough to see if it broke the shifter cable mount or not. If it did, you'll have to replace the shifter.

1998 pontiac sunfire gt standard transmission diagram having shifter problems trying to find out why


Check that as you move the shifter, that the shifting rods beneath are moving in tune with the shifter's position.
If not, then your mechanism is faulty.
It is almost certain that the issue lies with the external shifting mechanism.
The issue may be just beneath the shifter lever, within the rubber or leather bag shroud. You might have to pull out the centre console to have a closer inspection.

Ok, here is what you do, slide under vehicle, locate shift lever on side of transmission rotate counter-clockwise two clicks, pop shifter on, hop back inside turn key on depress brake pedal and check shifter, if it falls off again replace cable assembly they do not sell individual bushings, and get cable from dealer.

I was driving the Chevy Cavalier. A 1998. I was in first gear until about 3500 rpm, and when i went to put it into second, it slipped down into fourth gear. Now it is stuck in fourth gear, and wont go...


Sounds like you have a broken or disconnected shift cable.There are two cable attaching at different angles.Either disconnected at trans or below shifter.

Shifter cable broke in 1998 chevy suburban


Ok, Disconnect it from the Tranny First. This will make it easier to Fish Through. Connect the New Cable on the Tranny. Follow where the Old one Goes with the New one, Removing the Old one as you go. It will enter the Cab and work it's way up to the Sterring Column. You will Need to remove the Dash Panel to Access the Cable on the Shifter, It just Pulls Loose. You are at the Hardest Part of this at this Point. Let me know if you cannot access the Shifter From this Point. Please Rate My Response! Thanks!
