Shifter cable? No. It pops on a nipple under dash. Lay on your back looking up under the dash while moving shifter. Do you see the end moving?

98 ford f150 goes in reverse butvnot forward after pothole accident ..trans. pan ok..linkage from steering column ok..what else could it be?


Two places to look:

Shift linkage is very sensitive and may need to be adjusted. Perhaps it was pulled out of position by the motion.

There is a clamp that holds the sift linkage in place on the steering column that breaks, cheap part, not too difficult to replace.

I Have a 1990 F150 and it wont shift (auto) on the steering column. I am in need of either a diagram so I can replace the steering shaft tube or any other ideas anyone else would have. It will start up...


some steering column shifters required the lever to be pulled back to the wheel before the shift could be made (a safety thing). Check for seized bushings or worn bushings that is preventing the movement

2001 F150 The column gear shifter won't fully engage. The truck won't start unless I rock the truck back and forth


This problem could be caused by a few things, first I would check the shift cable (most common) by disconnecting it from the transmission range sensor (on transmission), and from the ball stud on the steering column. Then have an assistant push one end of the cable fully foward and hold firmly. You then push on the other end making sure no spongyness is present. the cable should feel solid, then have your assistant let go and manually pull cable in and out, should be smooth with no binding, if binding or spongyness is present replace cable. Second, the bracket with the ball stud on the steering column is attached with 3 gold colored bolts that require a t-30 torx socket. These tend to come loose and does not allow the cable to completely be pushed into the park position, so by rocking the truck, the shift bracket is forced into park. make sure these bolts are tight. You might have to put the shift lever in the low position to see these bolts. Third, the cable might require adjustment due to the locking tab at the transmission range sensor not completely locked.

Shift lever is loose and won't shift


Yes you can repair it your self, check under the dash where the trans cable hooks to the shift lever, where the eye of the cable hooks on there are two screws, if these are loose the truck will still shift but the free play makes slack and the cable will not move all the way. If this piece is not loose you will have to lower the steering column and check this shaft, they are know to split in two and with the column down they are easy to change.

Gear shift assembly


This is a common problem, I had the same issue, mine completely broke off. You can buy the new sleeve with a new rod at the dealer. The replacement is quite simple. You need to remove the upper and lower covers for the steering column, then drop the sterring column with by removing the four bolts. There are four bolts that hold the sleeve in.
