Is the transmission still out? If so, there should be either a side or top mounted gear selection. If it is a top loader manual transmission, you can use any type of metal rod as a makeshift gear stick. Make sure that the dimension of the metal rod will fit snugly, and return the transmission to the neutral position. If on the side, make the necessary adjustments to place the transmission in the neutral position.

I have a 2000 Kia Sephia with an automatic transmission. It starts and runs fine, but all of a sudden, it won't shift into any gear. It won't make a noticeable sound or action while shifting from...

all of a sudden- lkike your driving down the road and it stops working? or your stuck at home? so what I gather is you have a good running car that wont move.... a couple of things to check.. look under the hood at your transmission... there is a link from your shifter to the tranny. have someone else move the lever from frive to low gear to park etc.. then you look under the hood and make sure the cable is still attatched to the trans. if it is attatched and not moving you might have a freyed cable... if none of this is working you prob. need a new tranny
hope this helps

My '99 Silverado 1500 Z71 has been an awesome dependable truck with over 225000 miles. But we've suddenly lost the reverse gear. The drive gears work fine & the tranny fluid is fine so what would cause...

No reverse, here are few things you can try before needing to take it to a tranny shop. The 4l60e trans is a fully electronic trans. And being so the problem could be as simle as the reverse shift solenoid has shortted out. Along that same line the reverse valve could be stuck and or the little screen that is attatched to the mid plat could be clogged and in order fix this problemyou need to drop out the valve boby and for the most part rebuild the reverse circute.

Now for the hard stuff. Other problems you could look at.
imput housing assembly - 3-4 apply ring stuck in applied position.
- forward clutch not releasing
- turbine shaft seals missing,cut or damaged.

manual linkage - not adjusted

oil pump assembly - retainer and ball assembly missing or damaged.
- stator shaft seal rings or ring grooves damaged.
- stator shaft sleeve scored or damaged.
- revers boost valve stuck, damaged or misassembled.
- cup plug missing.
- restricted oil passage.
- faces not flat.
- converter clutch apply valve stuck.

valve body assembly - 2-3 shift valve stuck.
- manual linkage not adjusted.
- spacer plate and gaskets incorrect, misposition or damaged.

reverse input clutch - clutch plate worn.
- reverse input houeing and drum assembly cracked at weld.
- clutch plate retaining ring out of groove.
- return spring asembly retaining ring out of groove.
- piston deformed or dished.
- seals cut or damaged.
- retainer and ball assembly not sealing.
- restricted apply passage.

lo and reverse clutch - clutch plates worn.
- clutch plate retaining ring mispositioned.
- porosity in piston.
- seals damaged.
- return spring assembly retaining ring mispositioned.
- restricted apply passage.

case - cover plate gasket missing or damaged.
- cover plate not torgued correctly.
- porosity.

now thhis came from my 4l60 service book.
hope this helps

My neighbor has a 1984 toyota w cylinder with a manual tranny and it wont come out of reverse how do i fix this problem

try moving the shifter with the engin not running. if the shifter is still stuck try bleeding the clutch. If the doesn't help and the clutch system is in good working condition then the transmission is hung up between two gears. Remove the shifter cover and with a flat screw driver move the detemts to the nuetral position

sounds like you have a broken shifter cable, kinda a pain to change unless you've done a few, it attatches to the top side of the transmission under the air filter housing and runs from there through the firewall and up the side of the steering column where it attatches to the shifter assembly

No the saturn limkage problem can not go into any gear and can not be driven in reverse,the gear shift is completely loose

there is a ball socket attatchment for the linkage on the side of the transmission. The linkage breaks the clip and falls off the ball attatchment point. Common to saturn stick shifts of the era. You can order the whole linkage assembly with the clip but its expensive(300ish if I remember right), or you can try and get them to sell you JUST the clip (If your ball and socket are intact) if they package it seperately AND your socket and/or ball didnt break. Assuming they are intact, TEMPORARILY you could use multiple tie wraps or steel wire to tie/hold the ball and socket together but it would likely not last long and have the risk of breaking while driving. Wouldnt do damage if it broke while driving, but you will lose the ability to shift when it goes...and will be restricted to coasting down with clutch depressed or driving in whatever gear you were last in till you can reach a service location.

The neutral safety switch on the tranny is going out. Replace this switch and you should not have any more problems. This switch registers that your foot is on the brake before it will allow it to come out of park to keep kids from accidently engaging the shifter.

95 saturn sl 2 5 speed manual transmission, clutch pedal is fine. shifter wont go into gear

This vehicle has a pair of shift cables which attatches to the shifter and runs to the transmission shift housing.To diagnose,removal of the center console is in order so you can inspect and verify the shifter/cable connections and movement,then verify the cables move the linkages properly at the transmission . These cables are a fairly common failed part and sold as the set,these are a dealer item and no aftermarket cables are available .

Check the connection on the side of the tranny where the cable attatches to the shifter arm. Its sounds like its either broken or slipping out of the mounting assembly.
