Hey guys question, my shifter release button is sticking at times You literally need two hands when cold in the am. Anybody else have this happen? Is it in the shifter or own in the inner workings of it. Kinda wanted to ask before I tore it apart if it's a part I need to get. Thanks for any help!

I have the same problem with my 96 and have had for probably 10 years but only in colder weather. I changed the shifter grip and that helped some. I decided to just live with it.

I used a shifter from a Pontiac Aztec. It looks very similar to the Impala SS.

Where are you that it's cold in the AM in late August?

Not had any cold weather shift issues.

Did have a hot weather issue. St. Louis, August, hot day, direct sunshine, black car, black asphalt, black shift knob. Car would not shift out of park. Finally removed the staple from the shifter and removed the knob...



it was so hot ('How hot was it?') that the 'nylon'(?) shift stem was just bending sideways, rather than being pushed down.
(Pushed it down by hand and drove off.)

HTH someone, sometime.
