There's a linkage rod that connects from the steering column near the fire wall to a post on the inside of the frame and over to the tranny.The rod is threaded with adjusting nuts on it to match your shift lever with the corresponding sellected gear.It sounds like the adjusting nut slipped down or off the rod.

Any chance you got an air bubble in the system? Try loosing the return hose from the heater and make sure your getting fluid through the heater core.

Sounds like a restricted heater core. Remove the hoses and back-flush the heater core system with a water hose. You may want to do a complete cooling system flush while you're at it.

If you can't flush the heater core clean with a water hose, it may be time to replace.

Newheater core new thermostat clean hosesnew anti freeze why no heat?

Are the heater hoses getting hot ?
Is the engine warming up to normal temp ?
If yes, you could have a problem with a blend door under the dash.
The blend doors direct air thru the heater core and the vents.

If the fan works in all speeds but is not hot, it is most likely the heater core that is at fault.

94 ford ranger temp rises and falls constantly

Does it ever get above 210 degrees F? If not, don't worry about it.
