1996 Saturn SL Q&A

1996 Saturn SL Question: Shifter doesn't work.

I had driven my car earlier in the day with it working just fine, but when I drove it to work the shifter was a little sticky. When I tried to leave I discovered that my shifter wouldn't go into any gear except 2nd or 4th. I pushed it out of the parking lot and drove it home (just a few blocks) and by the time I made it back it wouldn't go into any gear at all. I'm hoping it's just a problem with the linkage, but am unsure. IF it's only that and not the transmission, then about how much would that be to fix? -
Answer 1
Does the clutch pedal feel squishy or not not as firm as you remember it. If it goes to the floor with little effort possible slave/master cilynder. Im not super familiar with Saturn manual trannys but some vehicle have a clutch fluid reservoir. -

The clutch feels just fine! It's really just the shifter that's the problem...but because it won't go into gear the car is completely out of operation which is a problem. -
