Default shifter cables

I just bought my 01 pt cruizer a few weeks ago and seem to keep grinding second unless i push in the clutch and give it a couple seconds before i shift.I've also, noticed sometimes I shift it into reverse it doesn't catch sometimes as well as the shifter feels vague.From what i've read it sounds like the shifter cables,but the place I bought it from said the cables on the transmission side are tight.Can anyone confirm my diagnosis and since my local stealership is closed today does anyone know the cost of them???

No one replaces shifter cables except the dealer- They only break in extreme conditions-
Such as powershifting during drag racing.
Even then you just thread on a metal end.

First; I'd get some 'Booger Bushings' (They're $20- 25 Shipped) and install-
It'll shift like a dream

Then search for the clutch adjustment-
Chromenut (see links in my signature) has a booger bushing install how-to, AND he might be able to give you a 'line' on a manual to help with your clutch adjustment.

Ones under console last much longer- If not forever- Large one (on trans shift arms) constantly fails

Here's trans end how-to from Chrome:
Shifting Problems

I took console off; don't recall anything remarkable about procedure
