Try loosening the nut for the cable. Shift into park from under hood. Put shifter in park and pull cable, push nut towards cable and tighten nut.

thet are preset at factory you can push down on the relase tabs and release it then once its all the way relased you move throttle to wide open then release should be in proper position ? it would be worth it to you to let your local tech do this its easy but worth $10-20 to let him set it for you ?

The only adjustment you'll probably need is to get the air out of the clutch line. Loosen the bleeder screw, and put a two or three foot vacuum line on it. Submerse the other end of the line in a bottle of brake fluid. Pump the clutch untill no more bubbles are coming out of the hose into the bottle. Be sure to keep the reservoir topped up while you do this. Hold the clutch down, and tighten the bleeder screw. Some hydraulic clutches do have an adjustment on the rod that goes from the slave cyllinder to the pressure plate. I'm not sure about yours. If there is a nut on the rod, you can adjust it somewhat. You want it set so that there is just a little bit of play between the rod and the pressure plate where the rod goes. If none of this helps, you mayneed to replace the slave cyllinder.

This is an easy (well, relative easy) fix.
If you can remove the lower dash panel where the fuses are...
Put the key in the ignition and move the shift lever as you look below the steering column.
You'll see the mechanism moving. There is a connecting flange that has a couple of hex headed screws attaching the two pieces of the linkage together.
I just did this yesterday... if you can tolerate standing on your head for a bit, feel with a finger to find the hex head. These things come loose over time and it just takes a hex wrench.. not sure of the size but it's about 3/1t6 of and inch.. be patient and remember that because this is on the backside of the flange, you'll be tightening it in what seems like the opposite direction than normal..
There's not alot of clearance but if you're patient, you'll be able to tighten these back up.
The linkage and park and starting switch will all work great when they retighten..
(My 2001 Excursion had this exact same issue... it's fixed!) Let me know how you do and if I can help ..

Well, being that Ford and every other major auto manufacturer are irresponsible and will never take the blame for something that is obviously their fault, then you are screwed.
