2003 mercury grand marquis when shifting from park to drive car wont engage as in it seems to be in neutral slightly rolling forward move shift lever to reverse and it will go into reverse sometimes

Check transmission fuid level first. If its low I recommend LUCAS transmission fluid to fill it. If that does not fix it then it could be loose shifting linkage and will need to be tightened. To tell would require a second person to either shift or watch transmission cable/rod to see if it is working properly. With vehicle drive tires off the ground you can also try shifting it manually from the linkage on side of transmission case. It could ultimately be a blown tranny where on the inside the chain or belt has stretched or broken. Some transmissions have adjusting screw on outside of case or within transmission pan. Also it could be worn or stripped gears or sprockets inside in which case it would need a new tranny or rebuild.

1999 Pontiac Firebird manual transmission. Reverse pops out of gear.

Check the linkage first. They put plastic grommets on the arms. They disintegrate. After that, it is internal. They also put plastic tabs on the shift forks. Could be a bad gear.

1991 Ford F150 won't shift into park or reverse. Will go into neutral and drive, and the linkage at the transmission moves ok

The linkage may be out of adjustment preventing the shifter from moving into reverse or park.
One way to test this is to disconnect the linkage and manually move the lever on the transmision making sure that it can be set into park. Also try moving the lever counting each click from park to low gear to make sure it is clicking into each gear. If this works then the linkage is probably out of adjustment.
On the link cable there is typically a bolt in an oval shaped metal near the transmission shift lever.
1)Detach the shift cable from the transmission shift lever
2)Put the transmision shift lever in the park position, and also the shifter in the cab
3)Loosen the adjustment bolt
4)Reattach the cable to the lever
5)Tighten the adjustment bolt in place
6)Confirm that you can shift through all of the gears
Hope this helps

97 grande cherokee 4.0 straight 6....dropped automatic trans and replaced the torque converter and seal that was leaking. put back together and shifts and bogs down in reverse but drive hesitates until...

I'd venture to say your linkage is out of adjustment - don't mess with the bands if the transmission worked before. Move the shift lever all the way to the lowest gear detent (farthest away from Park), then tighten the linkage cable adjustment until the shifter on the transmission is right at its stop on the transmission. The shift indicator needle should be centered on the letter. (If the transmission is now working properly and the needle is still off, you can adjust the needle inside the shifter housing by sliding its clip on the bracket attached to the shift lever. I didn't say it would be easy to get at it...)

I am having a difficult time shifting my 5 speed trans into reverse. Threre is a tremendous grinding sound when I attempt this and now I am having a difficult time shifting between the gears.

Hello. I believe that you have one of two possible problems. First, your linkage from the shifter to the transmission may be mal-adjusted (best case senario) I just repaired this same thing on a Saturn, it was the linkage. Second, the syncronizers in your transmission have failed/broken. Check the linkage first, if that isn't it...transmission shop asap.

1999 saturn sl2 5 speed transmission will not go into reverse 2nd gear sometimes will not engage is there a linkage adjustment.

There is no 'adjustment' but you can check your linkage for security making sure nothing is loose or worn. Also check your fluid levels. If reverse is completely out and your starting to lose second you will probably need to have the transmission rebuilt or replaced.

2003 Toyota Celica GTs 6-speed transmission problem

Grinding going into third gear only may indicate a worn syncronizer ring. There are no adjustments on the shift cables, so I doubt highly that changing the cables will help you, since you are talking about 3rd gear only. Please note: This issue may be still under warranty, if your vehicle has less than 60,000 miles and is not 5 years old. Replacement of 6-speed internal parts is best left to a pro.
