SOURCE: saturn shifter linkage

Check the cable clips at the trans. Sometimes these clips come out and won't shift. Horseshoe clips that hold the cable housing.

SOURCE: My 98 Escort ZX2 manual transmisson seems to shift gear hard!

Clutch may be smooth but this is a sign of the clutch needing replaced. Some of these models have a linkage adjustment under the hood. Others are hydrallic and need fluid. Look under the hood where the steering is and see which you have and address accordingly. Good luck. Check on costs of clutch replacement.

take out the console, look on youtube for videos of others doing this. most likely you are going to need a saturn shifter bushing repair kit which you can get on ebay for less than 20 bucks.

2001 KIA sportage down shifting by itself and the hold light keeps blinking what could be wrong

a blinking hold light means the transmission control sensor is telling the engine cntrol sensor that something is wrong. Usually it is nothing too serious, mine has been doing it on and off for years, go to a transmission shop that offers free or cheap diagnosis, get several opinios before spending a lot of money

If the linkage on the transmission is OK then it sounds to me like the transmission electronic controller is crapping out.

I have a 2001 kia sportage 4x4 and had to recently change the transmission. It is curently at the mechanic and the transmissions he has got(2 at this point) he said won't shift and will only do 20mph.

Is a 2001 really worth the cost of a new transmission? It could be the computer not recognizing the new transmission. Is your mechanic familar with Kia/Hyundai?

It could be the shifter, but you can physically see if it is working by watching the shift linkage at the transmission while someone takes it through the gears. Doesn't even need to be running. If it is bad, you can get a salvage yard shift assembly and install it yourself in about 1 1/2 hours. If you are lucky and it is the shifter, that means you don't need a transmission ($2,000.00!).

I just replaced all the belts on my 2000 Kia

The last shift is not a real gear shift, it is called "torque converter". The high rpms happens because the transm. goes to neutral. Get it to a transm. shop to be tested

HOLD keeps coming on in my 99 kia sportage what does that mean

Look on the shifter lever,just bellow the push button. There is another push button there. That's the one you press or depress to keep the transmission on 3rd. gear. Just press it again and the hold light should come off.
