Sounds like the shifter cable,if it is and automatic trans. has broken. look at the trans selector under the truck and see if it moves when you select different gears.If it doesn't its the cable

SOURCE: 1982 rabbit shift linkage

There is a plastic ball that is in the shift linkage that also wears and is usually not included in the shift linkage bushing kit. It is attached to a metal piece and is bolted to the shift linkage. This is generally the problem if you already replaced the bushings.

Sometimes the linkage is out of adjustment but I would make sure that the ball is not worn first. They generally cost $5.00 - $8.00 or so.

If you need to adjust the linkage you can try the following, but if the bushings or the ball is worn adjustment will not do any good.

There is an adjustment on the shift rod that goes from the shifter to the transmission. It is a rod slipped into a tube with a locking collar or clamp.

The way that I do this is to make sure that your vehicle is in 1st gear and then loosen the bolt on the clamp.

Make sure that the clamp is loose enough so that the shaft can slip in the tube. Put the shifter in the 1st gear position and then tighten the clamp.

You may need to fiddle with this a little to get it in just the right spot.

This is much easier if you have an assistant.

SOURCE: car will not shift into gear

Sounds like a linkage/cable to me. Disconnect the linkage at the transmission and move the shift actuator by hand to see if there is the same things happening. Don't try to do this with the engine running unless someone is holding the brake inside the car.

How can i adjust the gear linkeage on my 2000 ford focus it is hard to select reverse gear occasionally.5 speed manual


You may want to grease the fork sliders on the top plate. Check the nylon thickness on the forks for excessive wear. Check for excessive shaft end play between the gears and the case. Make sure the detentes on the fork sliders fully engage. The shift linkage arms have bushings so make sure there isn't excessive wear on the reverse arm .

Samurai 5th/reverse rail fork stuck


Hi Amanda

This sounds very much to me like a linkage problem. I think your best bet would be to take it to your mechanic for him/her to have a look at it and fix it properly.

Hope this helps.

I have a 1987 Mazda B2000 pick up. My shifter will not fit back on my newly re-built transmission. Do any other shifters work with this model as I am unable to locate an original for replacement.


I'm sure you have checked the shifter and shifter spring,,...Shifters can be rebuilt also....Make sure your clutch linkage is properly adjusted...The clutch is non adjustable...They may have got air in the hydraulic lines while removing and installing...This would give you a spongy pedal ...Most shifters in order to put it in reverse you push over and up or over and down......if shifter is loose and wobbly it won't have enough force to push the reverse shift rod....However if shifter is in great shape it sounds like the reverse shift rod could be hanging up and not sliding the shift fork...It could be the rebuilders fault......Reverse gear is the largest gear in the transmission and it is located at the back of TRANS which means it will require more force to put in reverse.......I would take it back to rebuilders shop and tell them something isn't right with going to reverse gear...if you wait too long they will think it is something you may have done by incorrect shifting.....

Check the linkage at the transmission. Have somebody move the selector while you watch the linkage move. It might be out of adjustment for reverse, or be binding up.

Reverse gear spits out


is it manual or automatic. Spits out. Being an 85 golf, There are parts on vehicles that need adjusting over time. There are parts on these adjustable parts that need maintenance and after say 24 years lol, replacing. Shift linkage adjustment and shift bushings are the most common cause of reverse (spitting out). Purchased online for 8.00 U.S. or get the nice neoprene if you plan on keeping the golf. Shift linkage adjustment is easy if you are a professional. If your not, plan to be on your back and making alot of trips back and forth if you don't know what your doing. Don't let some crook talk you into serious money. Adjust your linkage , but first replace the shift bushings. The little things are what tell the big things what to do.
