Hello and welcome,

My name is ***** ***** it will be my pleasure to assist you today.

I will provide an honest answer. I trust this will be appreciated. Please remember that a low rating PUNISHES me for being honest and that I receive nothing for my time until a positive rating is clicked.

if you are lucky, and somehow this turns out only to be a problem with the shift linkage (which is unlikely, unfortunately) then you will be looking at a few hundred dollars.

more likely, the transmission will need to be opened and you will be looking at more in the $1000 range.

Please let me know if you have further questions. Please do not forget to click a positive rating as this is the only way I receive credit for my answer, thank you. Best wishes with your vehicle

If linkage. How is it fixed. Also is there transmission fluid and is there a reservoir that can be filled or is it sealed?

it is fixed by replacing the bushings and shift linkage.

this is definitely not a fluid issue.
