Q: I cannot shift gears.

asked by on January 06, 2016

The gear shift is not working.

The bottom of the gear shifter tube attached to the shifter cable and when you move the shifter it moves the shift cable. On these vehicles they may have a few different issues like the shift tube broke, the bottom of the shift tube lever that connects to the cable came off and just needs to be reinstalled. These are the most common issues with the shifter on these vehicles. I recommend you have your mechanic check this out and fix as needed.
