disconnect the the shifter cable from tranny and take out your center console lots of screws try not to break it and take the console off you have to pull some of you carpet back so you will have to do certain things to move the carpet so yea and there is a rubber grommet on your fire wall witch has two screws and two cables when you the screw off you have to run the cable you want out inside the car then under the carpet disconnect it from the shifter linkage and repeat to install disconnect the battery not needed but still always good to do

That particular part (shifter cable, including the bushings) has been discontinued. I tried finding the same piece for my cable and that's what Chevy told me. You'd have to either go to a scrap yard and find one from an old Lumina, or another car that uses the same cable part. Or replace the cable with something else that works.

Could be your shifter cable has stretched and you need to replace it? On my 1995 Saturn SL2 I could not keep the shifter in 3rd gear. I replaced the tranny with one from the junkyard and the problem still persisted. I talked to Saturn and they said it was my shifter cable. I installed the shifter cable and the new tranny goes into 3rd gear without any problems. Please use this as an FYI. It was time consuming and expensive to replace the shifter cable, but a lot less expensive than the tranny. Hopefully it is something simpler for you.
