Personally I would go to junk yard and get that part you described. That part is rather easy to get to and replace. Good luck

SOURCE: shifting cable/shifting linkage adjustment

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.

SOURCE: 06 ford focus 5spd. no 1st, 3rd, or 5th gear.

It sound like the gear linkage isn,t set up right, you wouldn,t always be able to engage a gear unless you rocked the car.

SOURCE: 2001 Ford Expedition - starts, won't shift out of park, windows n

Check the #15 fuse in fusebox behind marked panel on left lower dash just below and left of steering column. This is only a 5 amp fuse but it controls a lot. This fixed our 2001 Expedition. 25 cents.

Under your dash attatched to the steering column is your shift tube, at the end is a ball that your linkage goes too, that part has 2 T25 torx screws holding it to the shift tube, those screws are notorious for comming loose

Gear shift in 2001 ford expedition stuck in park wont shift


Check under the dash at the top of the brake lever. There are some plastic switches which can get hit by your feet. Since you have to step on the brake pedal to shift the transmission out of Park, that switch is probably broken or out of place.

You can have someone look at the brake lights and see if they light up when the pedal is pressed. Chances are that circuit is not working so the electric release for the gearshift will not work.

Car wont shift into gear. Gear shift moves but gears don't


It sounds like the lever from the gear shifter has come loose. I would first look at the shifter from under the car. You can also remove the boot (or console) from inside the car and check the linlage. Most linkage is held on by a small clip or cotter pin and somethime they don't stay in place anad the linkage slides off the arm..

My 2000 Ford Expedition XLT will not go into P,R,N,D,2 and 1..


You know,i had kind of the same problem with my 2000 f150,just incase you didnt check this,look under the dash at the bottom of the steering column,there is a bracket that bolts on with 2 torque bolts at ( t-25 or t-30) the shift cable connects to that bracket and when it loosens up it wont go into park or if loose enough it may not shift to reverse either.An easy way to tell if its loose is if the shift lever feels loose or real easy to move.Also at the transmission where the shift cable connects there is a plastic holder with groves on it for adjustment,dont try adjusting it but inspect it if its loose or broken,if you try adjusting it then its tough to get it back where it needs to be for all the gears to work with the shift indicator tab,about it not starting,that may have to do with the safety neutral switch on the transmission,but double check the linkage to make sure its really tight before worrying about that switch,im not always on line these days but i will help more when i can.Good luck

1993 ford f-150 shifter busted


there are several possible ways this can happen, 1 on the transmission there is a cable that comes from the column, check to see that it is attached to the shift selector . This is located under your brake foot under the truck.
Another, on the column, towards the back of it under the dash, this same cable has a plastic cup that snaps on to a metal ball , it might have broke or just popped off.

You need to check the linkage. Under the car, the section that connects the gear shift stick to the transmission rods.
