Go to a salvage yard or dealership of said vehicle and get another indicator. You've already had it apart so you know what to do. That little string is permanently attached to the indicator and the little clip, there is no adjustment. Just change it and push the clip on where it goes on the column sleeve.

SOURCE: loose shift selector indicator

Hello,

The shifter problem is likely related to worn nylon bushings on the shifter or a broken shifter quadrant (the PRNDL). You will need to disassemble the center console in order to pin down the problem. Procedure is found in the shop manual.

The shifter problem and the gear shift hesitation are likely NOT related. Usually, a delay in shifting is due to being low on automatic transmission fluid. Check your fluid with the engine running, and warm, car in PARK (be sure the parking brake is on for safety's sake.)

The transmission fluid dip stick has a red pull top and is at the rear of the engine. With a clean rag or paper towel, clean any fluid or dirt from the bottom of the stick and reinsert it into the tube. Pull the dip stick out the second time and note the fluid level. If it's between the top and bottom marks, it's OK UNLESS:

1) There is no fluid indicated: Add sufficient Dexron III or Dextron IV to bring the fluid to the correct level. (Remember that the dfistance betweeen the marks is in PINTS, not quarts like the oil.) Do not overfill the transmission.

2) Fluid should be ruby red in color and have a neutral "oily" smell. If the fluid has a slight yellowish color or smells "burned", you may have internal damage in the transmission. Best thing to do in this case is to have the transmission fluid and filter changed and proceed from there on your trouble shooting.

Best of luck,

Dr of Motors

SOURCE: Transmission wont shift into 3rd gear.

I had this exact problem on my 2005 5.3L Suburban... It would shift into 1 and 2 and reverse, but not 3 and 4.

I took it into a transmission shop, and he said the 3-4 shift solenoid was burned up. Wanted 1500 to fix it. Far from home, so I have to pay it.

Does anybody know the step by step directions for how to replace the column shift selector lever plunger and the transmission column shift selector tube on a 2004 lincoln town car?


Not hard to replace. But you can't buy them., unless you get the entire steering column. Just did a Ford, same set up. Junk yard part is cheaper.

Chrysler town& country modle 1997 transmission cannot shift into L and 3


Could be a couple things. It could be that the transmission selector switch is bad,or is not making a good connection at the connector.Or,it could be in the steering column,that the selector/shifter control is broken.

HAVE A 1989 FORD F-150 WITH AUTO TRANS THAT YOU CAN'T SHIFT OUT OF THE "PARK" POSITION AT THE STEERING COLUMN. THE TRANY CAN BE SHIFTED AT THE TRANS WHEN LINKAGE IS DICONNECTED.I THINK THE...


What trans? AOD? This is 1992 F Series, all I have.

Shift Controls, Automatic Transmission The transmission shift control linkage or cable transfers the transmission operating mode from the selector lever to the transmission. The indicated transmission position on the steering column is transferred to a shift lever on the bottom of the steering column. On vehicles equipped with cable-operated shift systems, the indicated position of the transmission selector lever is transferred to the transmission through the shift cane, then to the cable, and down to the transmission manual shift lever at the transmission. On vehicles equipped with shift rod assemblies, the rod transfers the indicated transmission selector level position through a bell crank assembly to a control rod. The control rod transfers the indicated position to the transmission assembly.
----------------------------------------------
Automatic Transmission Manual Linkage Adjustments
  1. With the engine stopped and the parking brake applied, place the transmission selector lever at the steering column in the D (DRIVE position) for C6 applications and in the (D) (OVERDRIVE position) for AOD and E4OD applications, and hold against the D or (D) stop by applying a three-pound force to the selector lever knob.
  1. Loosen the shift rod adjusting nut at point A. Refer to the following illustrations.
  1. Shift the manual lever at the transmission into the (D) (overdrive) position for E4OD, by moving the lever all the way rearward, then forward two detents.
  1. With the selector lever and transmission manual lever in the(D) position, tighten the nut at point A to 17-24 Nm (12-18 ft-lb) torque. Use care to prevent motion between the stud and rod.
  1. Remove the three-pound force from the steering column selector lever knob.
  1. Operate the shift lever in all positions to make certain that the manual lever at the transmission is in full detent in all gear ranges. Re-adjust the linkage if required.
  1. On F-Super Duty Chassis Cab and Motorhome and Commercial Chassis recheck for correct operation of the automatic transmission selector indicator (PRN(D)21). Refer to Section 11-04A, Steering Column, Shift Rod Within Tube. ani_caut.gif CAUTION: Under no circumstances will it be permissible to adjust linkage in any position other than the(D) position for E4OD applications.
---------------------
Automatic Transmission Shift Cable Adjustment
  1. From inside the vehicle, place the column shift select lever in the DRIVE position (C6) of the OVERDRIVE (AOD and E4OD). Hang a three-pound weight on the selector lever.
  1. Raise vehicle on a hoist.
  1. Remove the shift cable from the transmission lever ball stud.
  1. Pull down the lock tab on the shift cable body.
  1. Position the transmission shift lever in the DRIVE position (C6) or the OVERDRIVE position (AOD and E4OD). This is three detents from the front-most lever position with the first position counting as one.
  1. Connect the cable end fitting to the transmission lever ball stud.
  1. Push up on the lock tab to lock the cable in the correctly adjusted position.
  1. Lower vehicle down from hoist and remove the three-pound weight from the column shift select lever.
  1. After making the adjustment, check for park engagement. Check the transmission control lever in all detent positions with the engine running to make sure correct detent/transmission actions. Readjust if necessary.

Okay, my boyfriend owns a 2000 ford f-250 super duty and your prolly wondering as to why im asking about this instead of him ... well im more mechanically inclined then he is lol funny huh... okay heres...


It sounds like the shift tube bushings are worn out. There are usually 2 u shaped clamps that have nylon bushings that hold the shift tube to the steering clumn. If loose, that throws off the shift position, could be btween 2 gears at once, and throws off the park - neutral safety switch. Fix that first.

Digital Transmission Range Sensor
The digital transmission range (TR) sensor is located on the outside of the transmission at the manual lever. The digital TR sensor completes the start circuit in Park and Neutral, the back-up lamp circuit in Reverse and the neutral sense circuit (4x4 only) in Neutral. The digital TR sensor also opens and closes a set of four switches that are monitored by the PCM to determine the position of the manual lever (P, R, N, D, 2, 1).
