The linkage ratio is off. This is the measurement from the center of the shifter shaft (the shaft that comes out ot the transmission) to the center of where the linkage cable/rod attaches to the arm that bolts to the shifter shaft. This distance needs to be shortened. THis will allow mre movement to give you 3nd and low.

If you have a weak spark it will not start since under compression it takes a much stronger spark to jump the gap as compared to a spark in normal air pressure. Try a good known working coil.

ROFL!! Larry, you'll just need to reach behind the dashboard and turn the socket 1/4 turn to remove the bulb carrier. Replace the bulb (I recall it as being a regular T5 bayonet bulb) and see if the light comes on when you turn the ignition key to ON. If not, manually trace wires back to the ECU (to the other side of the firewall) to verify that someone has not cut them.

It is highly likely, on a vehicle that age, that the bulb is simply burned out for the CHECK ENGINE light. (Should be a T5, if I recall.) If not, you may need to replace the ECU with a rebuilt. Before doing so, check the light circuit to verify that someone didn't unplug it (common practice when unscrupulous people are trying to sell vehicles that won't pass smog due to engine problems).

In regions where smog checks are required to register your vehicle, YES. In regions where smog checks are not required, you should fix the CHECK ENGINE light anyway, as it is an important warning of engine issues.

Since it works in all the positions except forward. Pull the switch, Look at it and take it apart. Clean the contact points. Or just replace the switch, good luck on finding one that is working good.
