Default Gear shifter over extending?

Hi Guys,

I have a suzuki sierra and just recently while driving, I went to engage third gear and the lever goes past its normal position and hits the console and then bounces back? The gear does remain engaged. I this a sign of a serious problem with the gear box and is it easy to resolve?

The first thing I would try is to pull the shifter. Check the sheet and bolt to see if their not worn or broke. If they are it's not a bad one to fix. Well sometimes getting the bolt out is a pain if it leaves bad threads.

Hi Mate, thanks for the response. I was driving to day and the shifter would'nt go into 3rd and 10 minutes later it would'nt go into any other gear??? so i'm going to get the car towed back. Do you think the gearbox is now [email protected]*ked???

Sounds like the way a shifter sheet acts when gone bad. Try the shifter fix and there's a good chance you'll be good to go.

Thanks zooki for your advice. It removed the shifter and replaced the disintigrated bush on the shifter.Now, like new
