Yeap I am a female and I have a 1992 Geo Tracker manual..the gear shift started going out of control and I cannot even hit 1st now it seems like it has slipped out of something...can any of you guys help me...Could it be the bushings and bolts? tks
The gear shift actually locks into place, and possibly yours is no longer locked. To unlock the gear shifter, you press down on it, turn it counterclockwise and lift up - the shifter should come out. Once it's out, do the reverse and see if it will then lock into place. If not, then, as Aqua says, there are two plastic bushings in the shifter circuit that may have broken and need to be replaced. Some info and diagrams of it on the forum somewhere, if you search.
