The gear shifter just broke down. It is shifting gear when pressed but locking into any gear. Instead after leaving shifter, gear is falling back to lowest gear.

Most likely the little ratchet in the shifter is gummed up.

Squirt lost of WD 40 and or GT 85 in to the shifter. Blast it in to all of the nooks and crannies, kepp working the gshifter all the time.

You may need to adjust indexing.

My gear shift broke on my 2004 toyota sequoia just moves up and down without shifting gears


You need to get under the hood or under it and check the linkage from the shifter to the box, likely something has come off.

I bought a 2003 R6 from this guy who said the chain broke on him. The bike only in neutral and first gear. i cant hift up from one to two or neutral to two. Plus I dont the clutch is engaging at all. once...


personally I have never heard of a chain breaking and having any affect on the transmission and shifting. although if the chain broke and caught the shifter, it may have pulled the shifter so hard that it could have bent the shifting forks inside the transmission.. this would explain most of your problems..replace the chain,and with the bike "off" and in neutral, on level ground, rock it back and fourth about 6 inches and try shifting from neutral to 1st and then back up to neutral, and then to 2nd. keep rocking the bike back and fourth while doing this and do this WITHOUT using the clutch. If it wont go to the gears easily, the shift forks are likely bent. there is a safety switch for the kickstand that will shut the bike down if the kickstand is down and bike is in gear. if the kickstand is up and releasing the clutch shuts down the bike, the chain may have damaged that as well. Hope this helps..

The shift arm broke and is just dangling and does not go in gear?


There is a part that is called the shifting fork. It is a pain to change. Where the shifter attaches to the shifting fork there are teeth on the shifter and the shifting fork. The shifter has a bolt through it to tighten the shifter. I would try taking the shifter off and cleaning both the shifting fork, which sticks out of the side of the motor, had teeth or knurl then a div-et then knurl. Clean it and the shifter up really good and reinstall the shifter. Tighten the bolt on the shifter really tight. If this don't fix it, then you can tack weld the shifter back on. But if you do this do it on the outside of the shifter where it can be ground back off, in case you ever have to split the case. The shifting fork goes all the way through the motor to the other side.

Shifter goes into lock mode, why?


Automatic cars have a built in safety to prevent the shifter from accidentally shifting into gear. Most cars require pressing on the brake to disengage this locking system and some require the pressing of the brake along with pressing the release on the shifter to shift it into gear

Sounds like your return spring is broken. Unfortunately, you will have to disassemble part of the transmission to replace it.

The trans is stuck in 3rd gear. wont shift


sounds like the shift lever shaft broke internally. if you know enough to take it apart and repair yourself, you will firure out how the gearing works. also check shifting forks for defects, make certain thier not bent or this problem will happen again.

Can't shift out of park


It's possible the shift lock solenoid, the wiring, or the fuse is bad.
