Hello, does the automatic shift lever feel loose at all?
On the back of the steering column there should be two golden torx screws for the manual shifter cable. You need to tighten this up and it should correct your concern.
Yea it can cause it to not crank. To test it try pulling up on the shift lever and seeing if the vehicle will start. If it does that is your concern.
Do you have a scan tool that can monitor what gear the transmission is in?
maybe I'm misunderstanding you. So the engine turns over but won't start while cold?
