Question about 1992 Ford Econoline

1 Answer

Shift cable linkage on 92 ford e-150 van.

I reconnected the linkage at the tranny. I found where the cable comes through the floorboard but I can't find where it is disconnected. I see the "prong" that it's supposed to connect to on the gear shift lever, just not the cable.

Can you drop your steering wheel it should be 2 bolts and from there you should be able to see where the cable connects to the back of the shift linkage , should be held on with a 10 mm bolt or torx screw

Sloppy gear shifter on 94 ford e150 van how do i fix it

I can only hope it is not the same as a '94 car!
I just completed the repairs on a 94 Ford car, and on it, here is what we found.
The shift linkage is inside the steering column.
There are 2 black nylon/plastic bushings that wear out, and when they do, the shifting gets sloppy first, and then the silly thing falls apart, and you get stuck in gear!
You have to remove the steering wheel and the steering column to fix this, but it is not really hard to do so.
Be blessed as you find your answers.

Two possible options here depending on which transmission you have. You will need to remocve the carpet or rubber mat on the floorboard. Under that you will have a stamped steel piece that removes from the floor. Then you will either have to drive a roll pin out of the tower holding the stick or it could be a push and twist on the collar. Worst case would be to remove the bolts that secure the shift tower to the tranny. If that is the case- make sure you put the tranny into neutral before removing the top cover. It will make it easier for you to install again. The stick and the shift forks will just come out as an assembly. Be sure to cover the tranny after you remove the top plate to prevent dirt from entering the tranny.

The van is in drive in all dears Even Park And in rev. it gose"s foward ??

This sounds like the linkage that connects the shifter to the transmission has come apart or broken. Have a good look at this less expensive fix before you pin it on that very expensive transmission. Hope this helps. Good luck.

Shifting column is not working properly, tranny is ok

Take the cable or linkage off the tranny. Push the tranny arm into park. If it is a linkage then adjust your linkage to match to tranny arm. If it is a cable with it disconnected see if it moves when you move the gear shift, The cable should move freely. You can pull on the end of the cable to make sure it is not broken. Make sure that your tranny arm moves in all gears. Please chalk the wheels so you don't get hurt.
