Having problems with your 1985 Chevrolet Sprint ?
Was driving my 1985 chevrolet sprint, got to stopsign, pushed in clutch to put in 1st geer and nothing just rolled into street. Checked clutch cable fine, checked linkage everything intact. The gear shift is like spaghetti (just moves around very very easily without pushing in clutch) While trying to put in gear it makes no noises at all no grinding nothing. I was told i need to get a new rebuilt transmission. Could it be anything else? Car was driving just fine than boom car wont go into any ge
The fact that you feel nothing at all with your shifter sounds like a linkage issue. Check the shifter linkage all the way to the tranny. Watch the linkage while having a helper move the shifter. If you have linkage movement between the tranny and the shifter, then yes the problem is internal. If that is the case, it will probably be cheaper to buy a used tranny from a salvage yard than to have yours rebuilt. Good Luck. I hope you find this very helpful!
Check the shift axle on the transmission,to see if the arm,on the shift axle is moving freely,remove the cable from the arm and see if it is freely turning on the axle,the part that comes out of the transmission,you will see what I mean when you remove the cable from the shift shaft arm.The retainer or the arm ,nut,or clip,may have come off.But if the whole shaft going into the transmission is turning,then it will need taking apart.I hope this was helpful,and if so,please let us know,thank you.
