Question about Cars & Trucks
Ball and socket speed control linkage has disengaged. I can put the ball back into the socket however it just disengages every time I start the engine. I notice that there is a 13mm nut next to the socket. What is the procedure to reattach such that it holds?

The dealer's answer (if you are interested).......
The ball joint is pressed into the upper control arm and has a tapered stud for attachment to the steering knuckle. The ball joint stud is attached and locked into the steering knuckle using a special nut. The ball joint is a sealed-for-life type and requires no maintenance. If the ball joint is defective it will require replacement of the entire upper control arm.

Sounds like an internal trans problem,but first,all of the external diagnostic checks need to be performed.Check fluid level,scan for diagnostic trouble codes,look at clutch volume indexes in the data stream,and also look at the input and output speed sensors to make sure they are functioning,as well as the command gear from the computer,and the PRNDL switch.The big tip thats an internal problem is the Reverse problem.Reverse is purely mechanical and hydraulic controls.Electronic malfunctions usually don't affect Reverse gear.

That cylinder is known as the clutch slave cylinder. It should push against the clutch fork every time the clutch pedal is depressed to allow gear changes. If it doesn't, suspect a faulty slave cylinder, or clutch master cylinder.
