replace part 27 (25551xxxx)
when this fails it hard to hits gears, and also alows the shifter to bounce wildly till it bumps out of gear.
if not that, its serious. (bearings and or synchro rings, dogs)

Will not shift into park.


Does the shifter feel loose or sloppy?
Are all other gears indicating correct and in there correct location?
How about manual 1st gear is it only operating 1st gear and the shifter is actually able to get down to 1st?

I believe you are going to find your shift linkage is loose at the base of the steering column where the shift cable attached to the shifter tube. there are 2 T30 torx screws there which often come loose and cause this concern. You can access this by laying upside down in the floor board. it is very tight and painful but possible. Check this and let me know.

My guess is the cable needs adjustment on the shifter.. seems to have slipped maybe a loosened hold down bolt..these have to be precise, good luck!!!

Car was put in park and would not shift into any other gear, the shifter just slides very loosely into the other gears. It's as if there is no resistence to the shifter when you are trying to shift. I...


sounds more like a gear selector cable.
kick down cable would normally be connected to the throttle somewhere and would not affect the shift lever

All gears worked four and five wont work now the kick start wont move why


You may have had a gear come apart and have a piece of it lodged in your gear box. Stop kicking on it and get someone to split the cases. No cheap fix here. Dump your oil and look for metal shavings. If you have shavings. . . you have yourself a $1500 problem. Also you may have somehow jammed your shifter hard enough to bend/break the shift fork. . . either way you have to split the cases to be sure.

Honda accord shifter


Junk and grime can get down in your shifter . U need check out how to take the shifter top off clean where the button goes down that connects to a rod that moves down and allows you to shift . The clicks u hear may be the end of rod not moving down far enough so it is clicking in and out of ever groove in the assembly . There is a groove for each gear that keeps it in place . Look on u tube for videos of this and I'm sure it will help .

Gear selection


Has the bike been dropped on the shifter side??? Has someone kick hard on the shifter leaver???There is a shifting rod the is under the side cover. If if is bent??? It will not shift like it should. You can pull this rod out when you take the side cover off, and straighten the rob back with a hammer. The rod has to be straight to shift proper.

Having trouble shifting gears wont go into reverse actual shifter won;t physically move into the reverse position so Ican't even find out if I still have reverse


You need to get to the transmission linkages with some penetrating spray, right where they are attached to transmission at front drivers side. You may have to remove battery & tray to get better access, but 90% of time that's the problem area. You'll see where the shifter linkages attach & pivot on top. The top linkage is your power valve,(like a kickdown) which kicks it down on acceleration, then returns after. This needs to move freely, and it may take some work & spray to get it loosened up, but that should help with your problem, as it affects the shifter itself too. After you get them movong freely, put a good coat of white lithium grease or similar on them . On my 95 neon, i'd have to do it, about once a year or more. Initially it would shift out of lower gear to next at higher revs, and when stopping it would shift down hard. Good Luck

'99 wrangler has trouble shifting to 2nd gear - 4th gear occasionally slips to neutral


If you can see where the shifter goes through the floorboard, make sure the shifter is not hitting the floor.
There could be interfierence under the car also.
