Try spraying all pivot points on linkage with wd40 or similar spray lube. Make sure nothing is rubbing against linkage that could be causing binding. Shift cable may be internally worn... if that's the case, you can shoot some lube into it where the cable goes into the casing, but generally it needs to be replaced.

It sounds like a vacuum leak. Check all your intake bolts for tightness. Dump some hot soapy water along the gaskets with the engine running. . It should bubble like crazy if it's leaking. Check all hoses for cracks and tightness. Use a stethoscope or a length of fuel hose held to your ear, and witht the engine running, wiggle all hoses around while listening for a hissing sound. Make sure your choke plate is opening all the way. Check the vacuum hose to your modulater valve on the tranny. Check the bolts at the base of your carburator, and the base gasket. Check the timing. Hope this helps.

have a transmission tuneup performed which may solve the problem. also have them check for metal shavings in the pan. take filter off and replace filter which could solve your problem. also may need a shift kit on the valve body.

The check engine light comes on and stays on when a problem is detected by the self diagnosis system of your vehicle. Generally, the problem is in the emissions or something that is affecting the effectiveness of the emissions, but other causes can trigger the light to come on, too. To determine the cause, the vehicle will need to be taken to AutoZone or a shop that has an OBD2 scanner, or for 1995 and earlier models, an OBD1 scanner, While a scanner will not give you the magic answer, it will give you a code that narrows down the problem area.
A flashing check engine light is an indication of a severe misfire or problem that is likely to harm your engine. Immediate diagnosis and service is needed.
Some specific causes for the light to be on are:
Gas cap left off, not tightened, not installed correctly, or needs to be replaced
Engine misfire - error might clear itself after 3 complete warm-up cycles; not restarts, but warm-ups
At start up for a bulb check - Should not stay on
Problem in the emission system, including clogged exhaust or the catalytic converter not functioning properly
Dirty/clogged air filter
Dirty MAF sensor
