Is it common that the shifter would break or disconnect somewhere in the column preventing the changing of gears?

To change the shifter cable on a 1998 Oldsmobile Silhouette, first you need to disconnect the cable from the shifter, then disconnect it from the engine's control arm. Then replace it with the new cable and make sure it is functioning.

If your dirt bike is stuck in gear, the shifter fork is most likely bent or broken. Changing the shifter fork requires splitting the case.

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

First find out what type of hub you have, it'll be printed on the hub somewhere. Then just do a net search for "shifter" + hub name and 3 speed.

Remove the access plate on the floor to expose the trans. disconnect the transfer case shifter as 2 of it's bolts are shared with the shifter on the trans. The bracket is held on to the 2 left hand shifter bolts and will have nuts on the top to remove, it is not possible to just move it out of the way without removing the other 2 bracket bolts further down on the trans. Then remove the 4 retaining bolts on the top of the shifter and pull it out.

Sure. Disconnect the shifter linkage/cable and set it to neutral by moving the shift lever to neutral by hand.

The shifter cable connects the shifter to the transmission.

Reverse switch defective or loose. Located somewhere on the shifter. Check your fuses.

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.

Probably the reverse switch is bad or out of alignment. You'll need a manual to find the reverse switch. It'll be somewhere on the shifter, on the transmission, or possibly somewhere in between.

The gear shifter has a retaining clip, just below the shifter knob. Hold the retaining clip in, on both sides of the shifter rod, and the shifter knob will come off.

yes you can grease a standard shifter.
