How long is 'too long'? Most cables are usually fastened securely to the vehicle along its entire length. Check the whole length of the cable. Check for any sections where it isn't flush against the body or chassis. Look for slack loops on straight sections and areas where it is pulling away from the body as it turns corners.
Is it routed correctly? Have you missed a bracket you need to thread it through. You might have accidentally found a 'shorter' route for the cable. This can cause tight spots when changing gears.
A small amount could be where you've pulled the cable sleeve too tight so it's not flat against the vehicle body.
A larger amount usually suggests the cable has been routed incorrectly.
Did you compare the two cables before fitting the new one? There are some less common cases where the wrong cable is supplied by accident.

SOURCE: How to get shifter cable and bracket to remove transmission pan

Most of these take a T-30 torx socket coming down from the top on the drivers side of the transmission. I believe there is another bracket in the way that makes it kind of tough but it can be done. Sometimes a 1" or 3" extension helps. If you feel up there you will feel the bolt heads. They are round and feel like they have a hole in the top of them.

SOURCE: 1997 Chevrolet Silverado Z71 p0758 Won't shift

P0758 code is shift solenoid B electrical /2-3 shift solenoid circuit electrical, It better to inspect the wire going into the transmission they have a tendency to leak transmission fluid into the circuit make inspection for proper connection if you decide to replace the solenoid you still need to inspect the circuit for proper mating. If this solenoid fails and you wait to long to replace it you can loose the ECM due to the high power draw it takes from the ECM.

HOW TO REPLACE A SHIFTER CABLE ON A 1997 FORD ESCORT LX?


Is this an automatic? or standard transmission? If standard, you may be talking about the clutch cable? Usually, the transmissions are controlled by Linkage between the transmission and the shift lever. Better detail if you are DIY is a repair manual. you will want one next time. Your library may have one, you auto parts store, or try filepeep.com if they have it, or try manualslib.com

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.....

Why when I engage the manual side of the j gate of my xk8 1997 model does it lock in high gear with no reverse,and gearbox faultcomes on, it will correct itself if iturn the ignition off then on aga


Did you correctly diagnose the trans problem in the first place? I think you need to get hold of the installer and see what they did or get a proper workshop manual. Have you a Jag specialist you could talk to? Or is he the one who rebuilt your trans?

My 1997 chevrolet suburban will not go in any gear the fluid level is normal.


Does the shifter move freely or is there resistance?

If it moves freely, the problem is a broken cable. If it has resistance, the problem is in the transmission
