Have Transmission Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hi my name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist with this today.In some cases I may need more info to assist better.I apologize for any delay.
Does the shifter shift in and out of drive and park and all other gears properly and that the issue is it moves to easy or does it not move at all into these gears?
Let me know so we can continue,thanks Pete.
O.k.,the shifter cable needs to be checked to see if it is worn or damaged in any way.Most of the time this fault here is caused by an issue with the shifter cable itself with it needing replaced.This can cause the loose feel as well as incorrectly shift the shift linkage on the transmission when placed in drive or another gear position.
I would have the shifter cable checked over for any issues.Any issues found with this cable indicates the cable needs replaced.
Usually to check this block the wheels and set the emergency brake and disconnect the cable from the transmission and see if it is felt to manually shift at the transmission lever properly into each gear/detent.If it does then the cable needs replaced.
