If you move the shifting lever in my truck it doesn't move the gears. I took the lever out and it seems to be missing a piece. It goes in the middle in some google pics it seems to be black. Any help?


If you have a stick shift that goes directly into the top of the box, the problem could be a missing pivot pin in the ball at the bottom of the stick
under that ball and directly at the end if the stick is a smaller ball that should have a plastic cup attached
that cup fits neatly into the selector rail slots
if it is missing ( probably broke up and fallen to the bottom of the box) the shift will be very sloppy
if the pivot in the turret is missing ( probably fallen out on the raid) the lever has no leverage point to move the selector rails

How do I correct my 1988 Ford Ranger 5sp manual shifter being sloppy?


The plastic cap on the end of the stick inside the transmission is likely worn, you can buy the whole shift lever from a parts house. If not the transmission is worn and needs rebuilt

HAVE A 1989 FORD F-150 WITH AUTO TRANS THAT YOU CAN'T SHIFT OUT OF THE "PARK" POSITION AT THE STEERING COLUMN. THE TRANY CAN BE SHIFTED AT THE TRANS WHEN LINKAGE IS DICONNECTED.I THINK THE...


What trans? AOD? This is 1992 F Series, all I have.

Shift Controls, Automatic Transmission The transmission shift control linkage or cable transfers the transmission operating mode from the selector lever to the transmission. The indicated transmission position on the steering column is transferred to a shift lever on the bottom of the steering column. On vehicles equipped with cable-operated shift systems, the indicated position of the transmission selector lever is transferred to the transmission through the shift cane, then to the cable, and down to the transmission manual shift lever at the transmission. On vehicles equipped with shift rod assemblies, the rod transfers the indicated transmission selector level position through a bell crank assembly to a control rod. The control rod transfers the indicated position to the transmission assembly.
----------------------------------------------
Automatic Transmission Manual Linkage Adjustments
  1. With the engine stopped and the parking brake applied, place the transmission selector lever at the steering column in the D (DRIVE position) for C6 applications and in the (D) (OVERDRIVE position) for AOD and E4OD applications, and hold against the D or (D) stop by applying a three-pound force to the selector lever knob.
  1. Loosen the shift rod adjusting nut at point A. Refer to the following illustrations.
  1. Shift the manual lever at the transmission into the (D) (overdrive) position for E4OD, by moving the lever all the way rearward, then forward two detents.
  1. With the selector lever and transmission manual lever in the(D) position, tighten the nut at point A to 17-24 Nm (12-18 ft-lb) torque. Use care to prevent motion between the stud and rod.
  1. Remove the three-pound force from the steering column selector lever knob.
  1. Operate the shift lever in all positions to make certain that the manual lever at the transmission is in full detent in all gear ranges. Re-adjust the linkage if required.
  1. On F-Super Duty Chassis Cab and Motorhome and Commercial Chassis recheck for correct operation of the automatic transmission selector indicator (PRN(D)21). Refer to Section 11-04A, Steering Column, Shift Rod Within Tube. ani_caut.gif CAUTION: Under no circumstances will it be permissible to adjust linkage in any position other than the(D) position for E4OD applications.
---------------------
Automatic Transmission Shift Cable Adjustment
  1. From inside the vehicle, place the column shift select lever in the DRIVE position (C6) of the OVERDRIVE (AOD and E4OD). Hang a three-pound weight on the selector lever.
  1. Raise vehicle on a hoist.
  1. Remove the shift cable from the transmission lever ball stud.
  1. Pull down the lock tab on the shift cable body.
  1. Position the transmission shift lever in the DRIVE position (C6) or the OVERDRIVE position (AOD and E4OD). This is three detents from the front-most lever position with the first position counting as one.
  1. Connect the cable end fitting to the transmission lever ball stud.
  1. Push up on the lock tab to lock the cable in the correctly adjusted position.
  1. Lower vehicle down from hoist and remove the three-pound weight from the column shift select lever.
  1. After making the adjustment, check for park engagement. Check the transmission control lever in all detent positions with the engine running to make sure correct detent/transmission actions. Readjust if necessary.

There is an overdrive bypass switch on the end of the shift lever on some, Push the button on the end of the shifter. It is easy to overlook, as it is on the very end of the shift lever, and can be inadvertently switched off when you shift to park. Hope this solves your problem

How to remove control soleniod on 1992 Ford Ranger auto transmission?


Remove the transmission pan, remove the transmission shifting assembly (19 10 mm head bolts) -- don't worry it will not fall apart -- there are three star shaped screw heads so be sure you have a tool to remove these -- DO NOT TIP the assembly as there are floating ball valves within it -- remove the top plate, take out the clip, replace solenoid & replace the unit -- BE SURE YOU NOTE WHICH OF THE WIRES GO WHEREFROM THE SOLENOID, PRIOR to removeal of the shifting assembly....

My transmission will not go into park. how do i fix that


  1. Install the shift cable end of the shift cable to the transmission shift lever stud ball.
  2. Install the retainer to the shift cable and transmission bracket.
  3. Feed the shift cable through the floor panel.
  4. Lower the vehicle.
  5. Adjustment Procedure
    1. Ensure that the shift cable is not restricted.
    2. Place the shift lever into the NEUTRAL position.
    3. Position the shift cable to assume a natural routing. The shift cable must be free to move 20.0 mm (0.80 inch) axially during the adjustment under adjustment spring loads.
    4. Pull the cable end completely forward and release it. (When the cable is pulled completely forward and released, the adjustment spring will position the cable to its most rearward position.) Notice: Do not pull the shift lever ball stud forward of the transmission shift lever ball stud during installation. Pulling the shift cable end forward of the transmission shift lever ball stud before installing the shift cable end to the transmission shift lever ball stud will result in a poor adjustment.
    5. Connect the end of the shift cable to the transmission shift lever stud ball.
    6. Press the locking tab IN in order to secure the shift cable to the transmission bracket.

If it is a top shift transmission you need to pull the boot cover off the shifter by removing the screws and pulling the rubber boot up to the shaft shift knob, next look at the shifter on the transmisson you will see a a upside down U push down and remove the c clip I think this is a C4 but don't remember the difference one is a 5 and the other is 4 but the top comes off the same way push down on the above part twist it counter clock wise and pull the shift lever out. there will be three shift rails look to the one that is on the right side and with a screw driver shift it forward and the backward you will see a notch in each rail if any of them do not have a spring to them that one has a broken detente spring or a broken shift or a shift rail that is in the shape of a U is broken or gone past the reverse lever not allowing to shift all the way into reverse, it could also be that the ball on the end of the stick shift has worn off in that case it will need to be replaced or welded up and ground down and smoothed off with sand paper then polished so it will be shinny, I don't recommend you do this unless you have experience in doing the welding, go to a junk yard and get a used one or buy new, the price will knock you off your feet.
