    its not a 12cyl but sounds like the cable is routed wrong or something is binding it.who is installing cable? gear shift shutter if stk shift could be a warpped flywheel which means you need to repl cluch assm and resurface flywheel. if its an auto you may have torque converter issue or other internal trans problem
