SOURCE: How do you adjust the shift cable on an autom atic

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 ?

You did not need to remove the heater box to replace the cable. There is a hole in the floor the cable passes through.

How to fix gear shifter linkage on 1998 Ford explorer?


There are two adjustment that can be made on the linkage. One is located under the steering wheel on the column, the second is under the driver side linked to the actual transmission. I will address both. The adjustment located under the steering wheel is located on the actual steering wheel column, it is used to adjust the arrow that shows if you are in drive, reverse, park ect. So if your arrow is showing you in reverse but you are in park, this is the adjustment you will use. You must take off the panels under the column to get to it. Once you have removed follow the cable to the steering column where you will see a white round adjustment. you either tighten of loosen and it will adjust the arrow, The second is located down bellow on the transmission, under the driver seat on the actual transmission, to adjust this u will need a long flat head screw driver, You will have to get under the driver side of the car behind the front tire. You will see the transmission, use the screwdriver to pop the cable off of the actual shift leaver. There is also a clip that is oval with a white lock on it, you must push up on the white lock to release the cable so it will adjust. once under you will see it, might have to use the handle end of the screw driver to push it, hard on the fingers . this will free up the cable for adjustment. Now for proper adjustment it states put the shifter in drive, adjust the actual transmission lever under the car to the drive position, make sure the emergency brake is on, the park position is the furthest the lever will got to the back of the car. So push the leaver forward towards the engine tree times, reverse, neutral, and then the third drive. put your cable on the leaver, push it on it will click on there. close the adjustment you opened earlier and your there. proper adjustment

My manual, will not go into 1st. or 3 rd. grear


If it grinds when you try to put it in 1st or 3rd, it might be syncros in the transmission. If the shifter just won't go to those positions, I would suspect the linkage needs adjustment. It would be unusual for the linkage to require adjustment unless the car was worked on or otherwise damaged.

1991 Ford F150 won't shift into park or reverse. Will go into neutral and drive, and the linkage at the transmission moves ok


The linkage may be out of adjustment preventing the shifter from moving into reverse or park.
One way to test this is to disconnect the linkage and manually move the lever on the transmision making sure that it can be set into park. Also try moving the lever counting each click from park to low gear to make sure it is clicking into each gear. If this works then the linkage is probably out of adjustment.
On the link cable there is typically a bolt in an oval shaped metal near the transmission shift lever.
1)Detach the shift cable from the transmission shift lever
2)Put the transmision shift lever in the park position, and also the shifter in the cab
3)Loosen the adjustment bolt
4)Reattach the cable to the lever
5)Tighten the adjustment bolt in place
6)Confirm that you can shift through all of the gears
Hope this helps

Put a new engine in a 1998 isuzu rodeo now it won't start. I thought it was the neutral safety switch because the R was on the dash and it was in park


This could be the problem. If your dash indicator is showing reverse but the transmission is in park it could be the safety switch. I'm not talking about the safety switch in the transmission though. In automatics they put a second switch to kill the starter from engaging. You need to adjust the linkage. If your shifter isn't actually on the column but the indicators are there is a cable that attaches the floor shift to the column and that is adjustable. Put the Floor shifter in Park and turn the column section nearest the dash by hand until you find park. Then adjust the cable length as needed. If all you have is the column shift it is still a cable adjustment. Set the emergency brake, drop the shifter to low 1 and adjust the cable linkage by loosening it on the transmission and manually move it all the way to low 1 then tighten it down then move the shifter to park and repeat teh adjustment process to verify that it is properly aligned. Lock the linkage back down and see if the vehicle will start, if it doesn't move the shifter to neutral and try to start the vehicle if the vehicle starts then check the column shift safety switch at the park position to make sure it is still in place and working. Typically, if the vehicle won't start in Park or Neutral it is more likely to be the Transmission neutral safety switch.

Reverse is not where it belongs, it is between reverse and neutral


you may have a bent shifter rod under your car. can you pull the rubber boot up on shifter and see if it has not came loose from the shifter inside? you will need to remove the screws that hold the cover on. on the floorboard. if the problems not there,it's on the shifter linkage rod. the bushings in the shifter rods may have gone bad or have been jammed by erratic shifting,or just every day useage.that was solution for manual shift transmission.[this is solution for automatic transmission] your shifter cable may only out of adjustment,or your shifter cable may have stretched due to cold weather or just worn. open your hood, this will take 2 people to work together.one to see the transmission shift on top of transmission,the other to shift the transmission. apply the emergency brake,engine off, shift the gears back and forwards from drive to park. does it look like the cable or linkage has play or slop in it? if it does you can adjust it by putting the car in park and then tighten the bolt on top of the cable,on the top of the transmission. hope this helps and thank you for choosing fixya.com

2000 ford f150 transmission goes to neutral when it is in drive


there may be an adjustment on the linkage or cable from the shifter to the transmission. You can get a procedure description in a shop manual (haynes or chilton will do) or sign up for alldata(much better and has all the info for anything you will ever have to do to this vehicle for about $15 a year online).

Put truck in park and go back and it will not start


Sounds like a neutral safety switch is bad or needs adjusted. The switch prevents the truck from being started in gear....maybe try adjusting the shifter linkage at the transmission and see it that helps first.

Gear shift rebuilt now my car won't go into park....


generally the first place I would look is under the hood at the linkage on the transmission. it's has a lever with a bracket for the cable.generally the hard shifting is due to a poor adjustment where the lever does not travel as far as it should. first step is to remove the cable from the shifter bar. then move the shifter bar to the park position manually. you will notice you will have to loosen the jam nut for the cable this will allow you to move the cable into the right adjustment. once you have done the adjustment tighten down the jam nut and rehook the cable to the shifter bar you will find that you can shift into park more easily... please rate
