Default Automatic transmission shift issues

Hello everyone, I have an 03 cruiser and last week I started to notice a little trouble shifting into reverse. It wouldn't engage until I bumped the shifter up some. Today, Park became reverse. It's not engaging correctly and I have no park so I have to use the e-brake to park it.

What is this related to and how can I fix it?

Thanks in advance for the help.
Jose

Pull your air breather box and remove the battery and battery tray and check your cable connections on top of the transmission. If they're okay, pull the console and look at your cable connectors there. Something slipped and is out of adjustment. Post back and let us know what you find.

Figured out the issue. Apparently where the cable meets the bracket there is a plastic piece keeps cable in place has broken causing the cable to shift when it shouldn't. Do they sell this price alone or do I have to buy a whole new cable?

I looked at mine yesterday and it looks to me like that piece is made onto the shift cable. Looks like you'd have to buy the whole cable. Sorry bout that, but at least you know what you need to do now.

Lately whats up wit all the ATX troubles ?

defective transmission filter

Possible torque converter issue ??


If you have a PT Cruiser with an automatic and it has more then 60K miles do a filter service on it and then follow up on that about every 30K miles there after.

You will have a happy trans!
