Broken bushing replacement should do it ................unless you went bonkers trying to force the shifter with gorilla strength! You might 'tweek' the linkage if you went ape, otherwise you should be ok, may have to make minor linkage adjustment to tranny. good luck countrycurt0

I just rebuilt my 97 s10 getrag nv1500 trans. the shifting pattern is off and i have no rev or 5th gears.


On reviewing the manual, there are two cautions regarding installing the shift shaft that may be the source of your problem. One, the shaft must be installed with the detents at the front end of the shaft facing upwards. These detents are what the ball/spring seat into when the shaft moves forward/aft (like into 1st/2nd gear). The shaft can be installed 180 degrees out, but you would not feel the shifter 'lock' into gear.
The second caution seems more probable. When inserting the roll pin holding the shift shaft lever and bushing onto the shift shaft, the roll pin must be driven down flush with the surface of the shift shaft lever. If not driven flush, it can bind on or interfere with the movement of the bushing, possibly preventing the lever from being able to engage all of the three shift forks (3/4, 1/2, 5/rev). There are two roll pins used with the shift shaft. The shorter one (7/8") is used to secure the shift shaft lever/bushing and the longer one (1 1/4") to secure the shift socket in the rear.
Unfortunately, confirmation will require removal and partial disassembly (removal of the front case) to confirm.

Transmission on 95 blazer shifted until installed now wont pull into gear..why


Is this true even when engine not running? If so, trans input shaft must not have gone into pilot bushing correctly, or clutch disk jammed it. suggest loosening trans bolts to see if it moves back as you do. Otherwise, shifter installed incorrectly. Stick shift, true?

I have a 5 speed manual trans , It goes in gear but has full throw left and right still, could this be a bushing or shift plate issue ?


Most likely a problem with the linkages, if it goes into all gears. I thhink you got it right with linkages.

5 spd manual trans, shifter doesn't have enough side to side movement to actuate 1st & 2nd gears. Shifter may be at fault? Bushings all seem intact at cable ends. It's the Lt cable that controls the...


Check the busings on BOTH ends of the shifter cables. First check underneath the center console that your bushing didn't break and cause your shifter to be limp and not move anywhere. This is a very common problem and can be remedied permanently by getting the delrin bushing found on ebay.

Next, if the above is fine, check the clips on the shifter side under the hood. There are 4 clips. Two hold the cable ends to the tower and slide horizontally. The other two hold the cables onto the transmission and slide on vertically. Sometimes these clips fall off and makes the shifter inoperable.

Finally if all of the above checks out the last possibility is that your shifter tower metal tab that the shifter cables attaches to is broken and sliding instead of pushing or pulling. This happened to my car but is not likely as my manual was in a raced Saturn previously so wear from that most likely caused it to break.

Shifter won't shift gears


Have someone look @ linkage on trans. while someone moves shift lever thru the gears. If lever @ trans doesn't move then its in the linkage between the column and trans. (possible clip or pin broken @ linkage jounts). If lever @ trans moves then its a trans. internal prob.
