Shifter Problems

Another question for you guys, my shifter has been giving me issues, first of, when in park, the shifter seems no not go far enough forward to allow the engine to start, and it won't go far enough back to be in 'drive' I have to push the button and move it back past where it's stopping it. So what's up with this? Would the cable that runs from the shifter down to the linkage on the trans be stretched out? Or would it be an issue with the linkage itself, everything appears to be ok up be the shifter. Thanks for the help!

Mine always starts in park but you have to feel the notches in the trans to make sure it's in gear. On mine it's the end of the cable on the trans. It's worn out and loose. In fact the only thing that keeps it on the shift arm is the trans hose above it is so close. Dealer wants $90 for one so I'll replace it one day but not today.

Well I adjusted the cable to see if that would solve the issue, now the issue I had trying to start it up and the shifter not being far enough forward has been resolved, now I have to move the shifter back into '2nd' to be in 'drive' so I assume the cable is stretched. But that's a job for another day hah.

You can adjust the trannsy shifter linkage down at the tranny.

Search for "cable adjustment" on the forum, here's one link:

ya I did that, fixed the park issue, but the cable is stretched so I have to move the shifter to 2nd for it to actually be in drive.
