Tranny works, shifter wont shift the gears. how to fix?


My 2005 Polaris ATP 500 requires I depress the right foot brake while shifting into reverse or down into low range. Perhaps some adjustment on the foot brake to make this work. Also check linkage to make sure it is not binding. Others say if the idle speed is too high, you may not be able to shift. Try shifting with the engine off to see if it goes into the gears, using the foot brake. If yes, try again while at low idle speed.

Gear shift cable 2005 chevrolet cavalier


Had the same problem. to shift gear manually with your hands. Look under the brake fluid (about a foot down) and there is a flat piece of metal. On the end of it on the bottom is a little rod with a round end. That is where the shift cable connects. pushing it toward the driver side of the car will put it in park. And if you count the number of clicks from park you can change gears. For example: 1 click from park is Reverse, 2 clicks is Neutral, 3 clicks is Drive. That is if it is all the way towards the driver side. Don't force it. when it stops clicking dont push it anymore. Hope this helps.

The bike is a 2006 Softail Deluxe. When shifting through the gears the shift lever won't return to the standard position. You have to use your foot to bring in position to shift again. Could this be a...


It sounds like a broken shifter pawl spring. This part is inside the transmission and requires a teardown of the transmission. Not a simple job. Harley was having problems with them in the 5- speed transmission back in the '90's but I thought they had gotten that problem solved. There never was a recall as far as I know but I have replaced quite a few shifter pawl shafts. The spring is what returns the shifter back to it's "center" position between shifts. With the transmission in neutral, engine off, use your hand to gently push the shifter down to just before it shifts the transmission. Then let go of the shifter and see if returns back to the "center" position. Make sure the shifter or the shifter rod is not binding in any manner. If it will not return to center, I think this is your problem.

Good Luck

It wont engage in 2nd and 3rd gear


Shift forks are bent or shift rod is bent.
Bent forks or arm won't allow the tranny gears to slide into position.
Must be taken apart, to correctly diagnois,

When you shift with your foot, the shift forks slide on the arm.
If its not going, one of the two or both are bent.
