SOURCE: Shifter loose-Not the infamous bushing maybe broken cable

I have been suffering from the infamous deteriorated bushing for about 18 months now. Until now, have fixed it with tape. But I want to sell it now and need something more permanent. Anyway, I went to a junkyard today and managed to pull off the entire shift cable in about 1 hour. I'm a novice as well. A few clips at the transmission, pulling the bushing off at the gear shift. Hardest part was getting it through the firewall without totally destroying the rubber. If you have questions, e-mail me at whitehype@hotmail.com

Hello:
NAPA sells the replacement bushing ($20) better than Saturns $200 to replace both cables.
Good luck

SOURCE: The shifter/transmission on my manual 5 spd 1999 Saturn SL1

This just happen to me a few weeks ago. If you take out the center piece in the car you should be able to see that the actual shifter is no longer connected to the rod which goes into the transmission. It is an easy problem to fix, however it is not cheap. I was told that you have to buy a complete new kit($250.00) for the shifter, however my dad gave me a different solution. He took some wire, and made a spider web type thing to keep it connected. On my car it was a small round plastic piece that broke, but I cannot remember what it was actually called. This little piece is not available through Saturn by itself, only through a complete kit. Please ask questions if this is not clear enough. Thanks :)

SOURCE: Need to replace the shifter cable on a 2003 PT Cruiser

Have the EXACT same problem. 2005 Pt Cruiser w about 88,000 miles. Became hard to shift when cold and then bam ....something broke. Moves freely. I know I'm going to get screwed on this... what should it cost to have it fixed. The guy at a shop close by (figured close to make towing easier) started into this 'its a dealer only part and blah blah...at least an hour .... " He's going to send an estimate tomorrow. I'm in E. metro Atlanta

SOURCE: I have a 1999 chrysler concord and the shift cable

Cable is shot. Change the shift cable (cable from shifter to transmission) Also spray some WD40 on the shift linkage on the trans and work it back and forth to loosen it up before you put the new cable on. Good luck

Shifter went limp now cant shift out of gear feels like broke inside.. shifter knob does a circle motion now cant even move shifter knob like i normally would.. i had to pop clutch to get truck started...


you have to know if the problem is inside transmission or outside
first under truck unplug shifter cable then try to move the manual lever of transmission near the pan but have hand brake on so the truck won't run over you.
if the problem is inside the transmission could be the parking pawl nut to manual shaft too much end play
if it outside transmission could be trans, cable or linkage
hope it helps

1999 chevy cavalier transmission won't shift into


1999 cavelier manual trans: My son was shifting his manual trans really rough (ramming through the gears to try to beat someone out at a light) and ended up not being able to put it into anything but 3 and 4 (straight up and down). We noticed that the shifter cable, that actuates the position of the arm on the transmission, had pulled away from a "c" clip and was not held into place about 8-10 inches down the cable away from the trans. The cable needs to be secured into that clip in order to let the wire inside move the trans. lever to shift. Otherwise you will be stuck on what ever "rail" your trans is on at the time of disconnection. It would be the first thing that I would check.

I have a '99 Saturn SL1 5 speed manual transmission. i was teaching my son to drive. he was at a stop sign and put it in first and when he tried to go, there was a bang, the shifter shot back into...


With an assistant check to see if the shifting cables are moving the arms on the transaxel, if not then it may be a broken cable. The most likley is there is something broken in the drive line, [ clutch, input shaft to Trans, final drive gear[s] in Trans, Axel shaft, etc.] First look to see if the the axels are bad. Then you can check the final drive by jacking up one front wheel [ making sure the other is firmly on the ground ] and try to rotate the lifted one, it shouldn't spin. You can see if the clutch or the input shaft is bad by putting the car in gear and seeing if you can push the car with out the engine rotating. Any of the problems will be costly to repair, axel and cable the least.

Sounds like you have a broken or disconnected shift cable.There are two cable attaching at different angles.Either disconnected at trans or below shifter.

1999 Saturn sl with shifting problems first gear and reverse


Ms Derry ,I would check the pair of shift cables and shifter itself before suspecting internal transmission problems.The cables attach to the shifter then runs to the linkage on the transmission.One cable is responsible for side to side movement as the other is for moving front to back(like 1st to second) Center console removal is fairly simple which requires mounting screw(4) removal on the front sides and in the rear cup holder.This gives you an opportunity to view the shifter and cable operation from above while this movement should also be appreciated at the transmission linkage meaning someone shifts the vehicle as another inspects proper movement at the transmission.If all this is actuating properly,you may need to tear down and inspect transmission but hopefully it can be rectified with external repairs mentioned...good luck
