Hey Susan==Drinks and coffee can get spilled on the console and gear shift lever. It needs to be taken apart and cleaned and possibly the shifter repaired. GoodluckJoe The shift interlock (device that makes it so you can't pull the shifter out of park unless you have the brake pressed) could also be broken
The 3-4 shift fork in the transmission is bent and will have to be replaced. GM came out with a steel fork that replaces the original aluminum shift fork.
Probably the shift linkage in that model.
i would say shift in corners
Bent shift linkage or you are parking on a hill.
Cable too slack.
Your synchro is going bad.
I'm assuming your in an automatic transmission. The only thing that i can think of is your in the rough range where you transmission thinks it needs to shift then doesn't or vise versa. Check gear ratios and timing.
If you are referring to the 2nd gear button, that helps by starting the car out in rain or slippery conditions.
If your not starting in low gear check the little snow flake button next to the gear shift. If this has been pressed your starting in 3 rd. gear.
What are the two d's on the gear shift for>
Dealer, salvage yard, ebay, etc.
Yep, then shift from second to third gear.
probably the park interlock mechanism
brake/shift interlock switch needs replacing
how many gears does a 1995 Yamaha Virago 250 have? And is there anywhere I could look at a picture diagram of what need to take place in order to shift from gear to gear?
the shift fork is either wore out or broke.
Stuck in Park? Check to see if the stop lights are working - shift interlock should be the same circuit Check stop light fuse Try turning the key to 1st position (Unlock) Shift to neutral to start vehicle and then shift to Drive
Sounds like the tranny. Check the transmission fluid level and the color of the fluid.
truck start shift is hard to move in gear
If it is a manual trans, the shift linkage might be loose, bent, or damaged.
