Will not reverse. Shifter is hard to move at certain times. Seems 1st gear is in neutral position, so on

What's the model and make?

Look in the rear, if there is a release pin, there is where u will find it...pull it out, that allows you to free wheel... Without the info though, it's very hard to answer the question

Neutral safety switch in a 1999 monte carlo

Nope. The neutral switch has 2 functions. It prevents the engine from starting in any other gear but park and neutral. It also switches on the back up lights when in reverse. You have electrical problems located elsewhere.

Every time my car comes to a red light it powers off.why?

EGR (exhaust gas recirculation),or TPS (throttle position sensor) When the vehicle makes a stop and go into idle. The RPM is basically too low to maintain the RPM, If the vehicle runs 800 RPM in park or neutral and doesnt stall the setting is correct. If it stall in neutral or park and has a hard time accelerating you will need a TPS, The EGR can stall a engine if it stays open underload approching a stop where it doesnt close properly

I have a 1982 honda magna v45. It is hard to get it into neutral, while at a stop, when running. It is also hard to shift from first to second, it usually ends up in neutral or pops out of second to...

If this only happens when it is hot you may need to use a full synthetic oil to stop the sticking. If it does this all the time , you probably are dealing with nicked or worn shift drum components or a bent shifter linkage (inside). Shell Rotella T full synthetic is around $22 a gallon and is motorcycle rated JASO MA. If you are already running a full synthetic, motor disassembly may be necessary to fix the problem. Try the oil change first. I recycle lightly used oil (low miles, not too dirty) in my automobiles or yard equipment when they are a quart low on oil so it does not go to waste.

Was loping in drive, would have to put in neutral, now stalling in neutral, at first i thoght it was the fuel injector, not sure

engine runs smooth if giving more than idle pressure. It is when the motor is engaged with transmission at start the engine lopes and wants to cut off. If I press the throttle hard it takes right off. If I come to a stop I can put transmission in neutral to keep it from cutting off. This creates a shifting that is not normal and I'm afraid it is a sign of failure coming.

Selecting neutral while stopped at intersection.

It could be one of two things.If the bike has not been used for a while,the clutch plates sometimes stick together and dont let the gearbox stop spinning on the inside.The same if some of the plates are warped slightly.(from high load or excess heat)Both of these problems make it hard to get neutral.Clutch needs to be taken apart and checked.Many shops will always say the plates are warped to get the extra dollars.Make sure that they keep the old parts to give to you.

Shifts hard into 1st. When stopped hard to find neutral

hello and welcome
this is most likely caused from a wearing clutch. when the clutch is held in there are a series of clutch plates that seperate. and allow ease of drive force from the main shaft to the counter shaft. but if the plates get worn they tend to not disengage as well. and the gears do not engage as easily and finding neutral can be hard to find or impossible to do sometimes.
to fix this the clutch plates both the fibers and steels need to be inspected for warpage. im sure you will find the fault there. thank you.
