... and strengthen a broken gear shift lever on a 1997 Ford F-150.... Loose shift lever on Steering wheel Ford F150 F250 F350 E150 E250 E350
if there has been no abuse or no chance somethind bent shifting rods under veh. check for loose or worn out shift rod connections,If internal trans shift drum problems your world just got more complacated
Check that as you move the shifter, that the shifting rods beneath are moving in tune with the shifter's position. If not, then your mechanism is faulty. It is almost certain that the issue lies with the external shifting mechanism. The issue may be just beneath the shifter lever, within the rubber or leather bag shroud. You might have to pull out the centre console to have a closer inspection.
If the car rolls with the shifter in the park position and the starter will not engage the engine than the transmission is not in park. This could be caused by a bad shift cable. In order to confirm this you will need to find the area where the shift cable attaches to the transmission. While a helper runs the shifter through the gears check the linkage at the transmission to see if it is moving. If the linkage is not moving that there is a problem with the shift cable or the shifter. Some disassembly of the center council may be necessary to gain access to the area where the shift cable attaches to the shifter to see if it is still attached to the shifter. If it is and the shifter is moving the cable than the cable will need to be replaced.
If the cable is moving the linkage at the trans than there is probably something wrong internally inside of the transmission.
If you have any questions or need further help I will be happy to do what I can!
Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome to the site. Your shifter cable may be broken. It could have also came loose. It is the cable that allows the shifter to go into gear. It could be broke or loose. If this is not the problem, it may be the transmission. But if you haven't had prior problems with slipping and shifting, I would say it is the cable.
