Problem: Manual transmission equipped 1995-2005 Dodge/Plymouth Neons have two shift linkages that attach onto the shifter assembly, and then onto the transmission. Over time, the OEM soft rubber bushings wear out and then you cannot get your car into gear, and the shifter feels sloppy.
Heres a photo of a shift linkage, along with a worn out shift linkage bushing attached onto the base of the shifter.
Comparison of a worn out OEM bushing and a booger bushing.
