1997 Chrysler Grand Voyager LE 6 Cyl 3.80L

Transmissions & Drivetrains

Gear stick (shifter) broke loose

Hi all
I have a problem with my Chrysler Grand Voyager 1997 2.4 SE manual.
10 years ago the shifter nob (transmission shifter) got loose so i can't get it into any gear.
It happen again now and the mechanic i used back then is no more so i can't ask him sadly.
Any one who can link me to some information about this problem ?
Repair guide or more information about this problem.
I need to get the car transported to my new mechanic but he never tried this repair before.
So to understand what the problem is.
The manual gear shifter stick inside the car got loose or broke it's connection to the gear box.
I hope that make sense what i mean.
Thanks a lot.

Sounds like the shift cable came off or broke. They are normally held on with the end of the cable fitting over a pin and then a clip (usually an E clip) keeps them in place. You will have to watch the cables as someone moves the shifter to see if the cable itself moves and has just fallen off or not.

Another possibility is the shifter bushings are bad, they are rubber inserts that go in the eyelets at the end of the cables. They are very prone to falling apart.
