SOURCE: How do I adjust the linkage on my 1995 Mercury

The bolts loosen up on the bracket that holds the shifter shaft to the cable. Look up from the floor board and look above the steering column in the shift cable area. Wiggle the shifter and you should see the problem. Tighten the bolts with a torx bit.

95 mustang GT I have Jam Shifter in Park to get it to start

You need to get underneath it to adjust the linkage, which means that you have to find some way to get it in the air some distance, and absolutely impossible for it to fall on you. Lots of people die every year when cars fall on them. When it's raised, take at least two spare wheels (with or without tires) underneath with you - they MUST be at least as thick as your head and your chest. If the car falls, it'll fall farther than you expect it to because its springs will compress for a moment. DO NOT DIE DOING THIS.

Find the transmission. Have someone move the shifter back & forth while you watch underneath to locate the linkage where it connects to the transmission. You'll see an adjustable joint there where you can loosen something (probably a single bolt) and slide one piece of linkage in relation to the other piece. Loosen that bolt and have your helper shift into Park. Jiggle the linkage a little to be sure it's in its internal detent, then tighten that bolt again. Test BEFORE you lower the car.

Adjust shift indicator 1999 ford ranger

it does sound like a loose transmission shifter

the shift linkage is directly below your auto transmission shifter. simply place in park, undo the bolt joining the shifter to the transmission, push on the transmission shifter at the other end so it clicks fully into park and tighten the bolt up hard. then check for normal operation.

just remember chances are when your pushing down on the shifter to drive that the direction your pushing at the transmission is reversed so park should be towards the rear of the vehicle and drive is towards the front. but may not always be the case. best bet is to get a mate to move the shifter up and down untill you see exactly what is going on, then adjust your linkage to suit.

I have 85 el camino with a th350 which was recently rebuilt. The shop after numerous attemps could not adjust the linkage correctly. I only had park,neutral, reverse and drive. I could not get it into...

The linkage ratio is off. This is the measurement from the center of the shifter shaft (the shaft that comes out ot the transmission) to the center of where the linkage cable/rod attaches to the arm that bolts to the shifter shaft. This distance needs to be shortened. THis will allow mre movement to give you 3nd and low.

Problems with gear box

The first thing to check is that your shifter linkage is adjusted correctly and that there are no worn out (sloppy feeling) shifter bushings. If the shifter is OK, then the synchronizers in the trans are worn. You can get the details for the correct way to adjust the linkage from the Bentley manual... Hope this helps...;-)

the body has probably sagged on your truck one side of the shifter linkage goes to the body of the truck the other to the frame.when the body sags a little the angle of the linkage changes and the shifting suffers..........on the fire wall on the steering column is where the linkage connects follow that down and at the bottom of that linkage there it an adjustment bolt.....with the shifter in park loosen the bolt,move the adjuster up on the shaft as far as you can without forcing it too much,tighten the bolt.......adjust as necessary to make it shift properly
hope this helps.......Good luck!
