1994 xj v12 red hot catalytic converter

(Sabatino ) #1

Installed Distributor Cap & Rotor, Engine runs fine , but still can shift…The shift is not moving even when I override, but I hear the solenoid engaging when push on brake pedal … If the cable is melted from the Cat getting Hot, can I give a good pool or need to go under the carriage. Car can’t be towed the way is parked.
Thanks

Sounds like the transmission is stuck in park? If the able outer is melted then you will probably have to get under the car and remove the cable to manually move the shifter out of park and into neutral.

There is any distributor that sale (Trans Shifter Cable) ? Looking all over and only finding for v12 up to 1992…
Thanks for the replay.

Sabatino …

Robin is correct (as usual) you must get under the car to see what’s happening.

Although they have different part numbers if the cable on your '94 is the same design as the earlier cars it’s a common problem. The rubber bonding that holds the mounting bracket to the cable fails and allows the cable to slide back and forth instead of moving the shift lever. Very obvious when looking at it. Fortunately if this is the problem it can be repaired without removing the cable.

The part number for the transmission cable on your '94 V12 is MMD 4830CA later changed to MNA 4830BA. Either cable should work.

Thanks for the part numbers I real appreciate what you guys did for
me…I will try to get under the car next week, as far melting the
rubber…I do not think is the case…looks like the inner cable and
the outside housing fused together . My stick shift is not moving at
tall…my cable is not sliding back and forth, like when you try to
shift with out pressing on brake pedal.but I hear the noise of the
solenoid engaging.Even put a screwdriver inside the hole and when you
press on the pedal the screwdriver goes in 1/4 of inch down.
