It is difficult to shift gears to different D or R or P

Customer Question

It is difficult to shift gears to different D or R or P positions for a 1991 GMC Fleetwood Pace Arrow RV. What do I need and where can I find it? The mechanic called it a gear box.
JA: How old is the transmission? Have you noticed any leaking?
Customer: No. I guess it is a 1991 transmission.
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: No.

hello, my name is ***** ***** I will be glad to assist you. please allow me a couple of minutes to gather some basic info.


Expert:  Roy Belding replied 5 months ago.


there is a cable that runs from the steering column to the transmission shift lever. it is common for these to get tight over the years

there is no lubricating this as you cannot get inside the cable.

the answer is to replace the cable. you will need to go a RV dealer and get the cable.

did your guy say the transmission is bad??? very rare if it is.
