I replaced the shift cable bushings due to the car shifting hard into 1st. Now it will not go into 1st at all.
My car has 74000 miles.
My car has a manual transmission.
Hi and thanks for contacting YourMechanic. From what you’ve described, you’ll need to check the adjustment of the cable. The cable may be too short, not letting the transmission engage 1st gear. If you need a diagnosis with your shifting issue, then seek out a professional, preferably a YourMechanic professional to help you with your vehicle. Best of luck.
