No, u shouldn't have to pull the steering wheel. pull the cover off the column, there are 2 or 4 nuts that hold the column up to the dash, remove them and let the column lay on the seat- u should disconnect your battery before doing so. you can get to the shift tube from there- most likely u'll find that the bushings have gone bad and need replacement.

How to fix the linkage on the transmission on 2001 Lincoln navigator


First thing is to get safety glasses,block wheels securely !!...set emergency brake..,get a good flashlight.Disconnect negative battery cable...Some can wear inside the steering column,some can be a worn linkage cable ...The lever on the transmission located under vehicle Trans at lower part of trans,driver side can become loose or possibly damaged...First get under vehicle with safety glasses and observe operation of the lever where shift cable is mounted while assistant puts it in park...make sure the trans shift lever mounting nut is tight before shifting..If assistant can't get it in park use your hand and push forward on the linkage arm and it should go into park manually...If this is the problem you need to change shift cable...Some wear inside the column where steering wheel is mounted..If cab shifter feels very loose ..You will have to remove steering wheel and column cover to inspect."..The cable runs from trans to the steering column..Look between gas and brake pedal and verify cable coming up through floor board and runs to steering column...Double check shifter lever at trans is tight because it is mounted on a splined stud and it can strip the stud threads if it becomes loose..If loose remove lever and inspect splines for damage..Call dealer and make sure they have the part..Remove old cable from trans and put it in park with your hand...Remove and replace cable..Be sure lever inside cab and lever on the trans are both fully engaged into park while cable is removed before installing new cable....Attach new cable.....

1994 aerostar van , automatic trans , will not shift after sreering column was worked on


Check out the brake pedal lights. If the van is stuck in Park, a switch on the brake pedal lever sends a signal to the release. The brake lights probably do not work and you are missing this signal.

Your foot needs to stay on the brake pedal in order for the shifter to work.

I have a problem. I have a 94 lincoln. It wont go into gear. The automatic gear shift drops all the way down with no shifting


Most likely, either the shift tube is damaged/broken or the screws have backed out of the lever at the end of the shift tube that the shift cable connects to. If the shift lever feels really "floppy", then you probably have a broken shift tube. You will probably have to pull the steering column down to get a good look at the shift tube to see if it is broken and to see how much play is in the shift tube bushings. Also look to see if the lever at the end of the shift tube is loose (shift cable lever).

A little word of caution: If you take the steering column down, be sure to disconnect the shift indicator cable first so it does not get broken. There is a tiny screw in the plastic braket that must be removed then the cable loop will simply slip off of the nipple on the shift tube arm.

Anyway, you will need a T-30 torx bit to work on the shift tube, the shift tube bushings and the lever at the end of the shift tube.

I made you a graphic below to help you understand what I am saying. Please note that it is NOT necessary to remove the steering wheel to do this, but you will need to remove the upper steering column shrouds if the shift tube bushings are loose.

Gear Shift lever loose


There are two torx bolts that hold the shifter to the column. You can see them with the lower column cover off (must first remove the ignition cylinder). If the lever is loose, these bolts are the first thing that I would check. That the identical problem on my villager.
