    so is the ground wire that seems to malfunction as a common problem on these cars located inside the transmission as well? Or is the ground wire on the outside of the transmission?
    Thanks

It's inside the transmisson you have to remove the oil pan on the transmisson to get to it.

    The wires in the beginning of the 90's were untested and so some of the wires would get hot and the insulation would wear off but most of the time it is inside the transmission where the problem occurs as there is a ground to the transmission provided by the engine ground to frame strap, if your having problems with it shifting then replace all 18 quarts of transmission fluid and replace the filter an add a can of lucas transmission fluid conditioner to top it off this will help the shifting problems, the valves would stick over time and wit the new Dexron III fluid it has helped with sticking shifting valves. but the shift wires are still located inside the transmission oil pan, the do come out where the shifting lever is located on the transmission and the wire can brake there because of the heat generated by the exhaust pipe so check at the shift lever for any sighs of a wire being loose first before going to the oil pan removal, gently pull on the wires and if one comes loose you found your problem. but most likely it just needs to have the fluid and filter changed.

I think that I need to adjust the shift linkage on the automatic transaxle, but I'm worried that I will end up mis-adjusting it. Is the adjustment as easy as my Hayne's implies?


Yes, it's rather easy, usually involves loosening a nut and sliding the adjuster. It shouldn't be too hard to get to it. Usually it's on top of the transmission.
