Raise and support the vehicle on jack stands. Place the shift lever is in "Park." Use the wire cutters and remove the cotter pin from the shift rod (under the car). Remove the shift rod from the shift lever.

Place truck in park, then pull the cotter pin from the shift rod and remove shift rod from shift lever.
Move shift lever all the way to the front. Screw the attachment rod on the front of the cable in or out until the rod fits into the shifter lever with no resistance. Install the cotter pin, but do not bend it at this point.
Now give it a test with your foot on brake. Go through all gears to see if they all engage properly and show correctly on gear indicator.
If everything looks legitimate, put the cotter pin back in place and bend it down so it will stay in place.

There is a sensor that fits over the linkage that may be your problem. I experienced pretty much the same thing. Costs about $70.00 to replace. I have a new one and would give it to you if I could get it to you!

How hard would it be to swap a manual transmission in a 1993 chevy 1500 to a automactic trans out of a 1995 s10, bouth trucks have a chevy 4.3 in them

I suspect the computer controls/monitors the auto transmission. I'm not sure the program is universal so you probably have to swap that too. Other than that. The torque converter, bell housing, drive shaft length, shifter linkage would all be issues to look at.

Linkage on the trans needs adjusting to engage center fork link when springs are centered. Remove the boot over the shifter linkage to check adjustment.

93 chevy pickup won't start unless in neutral

Put the trans in nuetral and see if it starts normal with key. If not, then the ignition swith is suspect. The actual switch is mounted on top of the steering column on the lower end. It is actuated by a rod. the key has no electrical. or your trans linkage needs adjusting. Good luck, Ned-

2000 Chevy Prizm Lsi 4-speed auto trans. problems

That does sound like a linkage adjustment problem.

If that does not work, I'd try a fluid change and filter. But your diagnostics with pulling on the gear shifter is a pretty good indication of a linkage problem.

'95 Chevy S10 stuck in first gear

I think the shift linkage is all internal so if you can get the shifter pulled out of the top of the trans through the floor, you can probably realign the linkage to a neutral position and reinstall shifter.
There may be something worn or broken that caused it or just one of those fluke happenings.

Can't get low gear

if memmory serves me correct its been a while since last tranny rebuild and adjustment
on a 700-r4 type transmission
make sure that the shim kit was used properly with this transmission cause wrong sized length of linkage can make the trans. shift improperly
you have the linkage under neith adjusted wrong the shift bar on tranny should face 90 degrees up towards front of vehicle engine for proper adjustment
