Sloppy shifter.

The vehicle in question is a 92 Sentra. When in gear it's like it's in neutral. What's worn out?

Number of things, but usually the shifter bushings. Since unlike 240s the shifter in a Sentra is attached via cables there are various bushings that link the shifter to the transmission. There is usually 1 or 2 bushings where the shift linkeage attaches to the transmission and also a few bushings where the linkeage links to the actual shifter.

240SXs have a small plastic circular bushing that wears out, it helps that pivot point spin when its inside the trans. FWD cars are setup differently but similarly worn out bushings will cause slack. Do you have issues shifting or just the shifter feels loose?

If you can work on a car, bushings should be easy

its not hard, i've done it

the bushings didnt make as much of a difference as I thought they would. I wish they had solid metal bushings.

Put it back together today and it's too stiff, you can't find any gears. Maybe only use one bushing, but which one? I got pics, help me out!







I didn't use the brass piece



Here it is installed

Well, see, um. That's not where those bushings go. They go on the shift rod near the trans. Still a bit sloppy, but I'm just happy it shifts. I think I'm gonna leave it alone.
