Hello and welcome. My name is ***** ***** you for visiting the site, I will be happy to assist you today.

It sounds like the shifter cable is just out of adjustment..

I can get the instructions for adjusting it and put it in a PDF file, (it is rather large) and send it to your email address for as little as possible.

.

You will just have to accept the additional service offer and ENTER your email address in the “ENTER CONTACT INFO” section so that I can see it, Thanks

I thought that my answer would include the fix? as in what to do? how to fix it? but you want 10 more bucks?
Expert:  Jerry replied 1 year ago.

No, the answer is to adjust the shift cable. In the even that you don't know how to do that, I can send a link with the instructions, either to your email or 'my' dropbox, if you would like, thanks.
