2004 sebring stuck in drive gear shift very loose whats wrong with it?
The teeth of the flywheel may be slipping and you would need a new fly wheel but it would just be cheaper to buy a new transmission unless you can find one off a another o4 sebring

If the gear shifter no longer shifts and is stuck in drive on a 1998 Sephia where could the disconnect be?
the shifter lock out switch is in the brake, remember how you couldn't pull it out if park with out hiting the brakes my 96 sephia had this problem and we replaced the nutrel …safety switch and the shifter lock thing on the brake pedel in side the car good luck. Also, you may have broken the gear cable. You will need to examine the shifter and make sure the cable is still attached.
You cannot select the right gears on your '88 jetta The gear stick is very loose but does go into gears but the wrong ones What is wrong Is it the shift linkage and can it be fixed. Is this expensive?
\n. \n Answer . I had the same problem in my '90 jetta. There is a small white plastic piece shaped like a dog bone that connects the gearbox and transmission and allow…s them to shift in unison. This piece of plastic is very brittle and breaks quite often. It can be bought from a VW dealership for about 2 dollars, and it snaps onto the top of two ball joints after you remove the broken one.\n. \nYou may want to check the rubber bushing that the main shiftrod runs through that tends to get worn out and makes the shifter slop around and go in the wrong gears. you can do this by jacking the front of the car up and putting jack stands underneath to make sure its properly secured so the car does not fall now slide underneath right before the firewall you will see the main shiftrod running through the bushing and housing try and move the shift rod around if the shift rod slops around inside of the bushing or the bushing is missing replace it. the bushing is orange just so it would make it easy to spot.
You put 2001 Mazda 626 in reverse then you shift it into drive but the car still went in reverse until you turned off the engine and it would not start again The gear shift is very loose what is wrong?
Answer . the linkage between the trans and shifter is what i would check first. also, there is a switch that prevents the car from starting unless its in N or P
Okay, if it isn't a manual...get them to check the transmission sensor. I had to have a tech guy from the plant in Springville? come to Jackson, Tn. and test mine.\nMy automat…ic would stall on take off at odd times and leave me hanging in the middle of an intersection. When it finally would jump into first it'd give you\nwhiplash. They replaced the sensor and haven't had a problem since.. Carolyn\n. \n Answer \n. \n. \n. \nI am assuming this is a manual transmission. It may be due to your clutch not fully disengaging. Have you noticed the shifter being hard to move between gears? If so, is your clutch master cylinder fluid low? ( It is located near the firewall on the drivers side near your brake master cylinder - the clutch master uses DOT 3 brake fluid)On such a new car I would think the clutch slave cylinder would be OK ,but check it anyway. I hope this helps you. Mark
Answer: One thing to check on. . \nOlder Fords can present many interesting challenges. When my '97 Taurus got stuck in park, my boyfriend manipulated the wires between th…e steering (multifunction) column and it was able to come out of park. As he recommended, I went to my local car repair and had them replace the "shift cable" and that fixed the problem. Evidently there was a break in one of the wires of this cable. \nA Virginia Driver.
Check the brake light fuse, happened to me on my 98, if not that then check the brake light switch at the pedal. Another Answer: All I did was refer to the owners ma…nual page 102 or 105 I believe, and followed the instructions. All you have to do is start the car open the small cap on the right side of the shifter insert a Phillips head screw driver and this will release the interlock. The problem is: you have to do this every time so keep the screwdriver in the car.
It is possibly a piece called the shift interlock. There should be a fuse for it. Basically, the interlock prevents you from shifting out of park without pressing the brake. C…heck the fuses. If it does not have a separate fuse, check the brake light fuse as they may be interconnected. Another Answer: I recently had to do this job, you can take apart the center console/ shifter assembly, and its located on the right hand side of it . you can take a zip tie and permantely engage it, but be careful where you zip it to, because if you zip it to the wrong bar it will lock your key in the ignition. The only bad about this method is you can shift it out of park even with the car off, but its a cheap easy fix. It only took me 20 minutes to do.

97 sebring lxi sputters when ideling and when driving and stops sputtering when the peddle is pushed to the floor and starting to loose power now whats wrong?
Check your codes I had a similar problem and it was solved buy replacing the MAP sensor
First you need to check and make sure that your transmission fluid is full. If it's not, then it won't shift correctly, or at all.. If it is, then there are three possible re…asons that I can think of.. First is that the bands in the transmission have gone bad.. The other reason could be that the odometer is bad. The trans requires readings from it to make sure that it shifts at the right times. For example, with mine it would only work in reverse and 2nd gear.. Or the relay sensor went bad. It's located right above the vacuum booster. There are four relays there, and it's the second on over from the right.
Answer . If you are no longer able to shift, then it's possible the linkage is broken. If this is a periodic problem, you may need to adjust the linkage or shift cable so …that everything is prooerly lined up
sometime when you step on the brake to remove it out of park the relese gets stuck try stepping on brake and shaking gear shift handle We had a similar problem, and the answ…er that it is the Stop Light Switch on the brake pedal itself is Correct! Did cost $6 to fix, fixed the problem immediately and only 2 bolts to replace. Very easy. Very inexpensive!
What is wrong with my 1995 lebaron transmission works fine except in drive will not shift through gears seems stuck in second gear and wont advance to third?
The transmission computer has detected a malfunction and switched to limp in mode. You need to have it checked for codes to see if you have an electrical or mechanical problem….
Stuck in "Park"? check stop light fuse and stop light switch Try turning key to 1st (unlock) position then shift to neutral to start vehicle and then shift to Drive
In Acura RL
The brake pedal shifter release switch is disengaged. You will need to go under the driver kick panel area and manually press the switch (look to see if the switch wire harnes…s is loose)
That happens when the transmission computer detects a malfunctionand sets a code. You need to have it checked with a scan tool toknow possible causes.
look on the tranny there is a little arm switch that you can click all the way down to put the vehicle in park. you may need a new shifter cable and/or the clips to hold it in… place. also look in the steering column to ensure the cable is still in place there aswell. im going through the same problem as i type lol
In Ford F-150
When was the last time you changed your transmission fluid? As the fluid gets older, transmissions start to shift harder, and you notice the shifts from gear to gear a lot mor…e. It could also mean that your transmission needs repair.
