Hi there, I am cam

Often the shifter cable comes off the shift lever on the drivers side of the transmission. This can often be popped back on with little trouble. When you have the wheel blocked and it is safe to climb under, do so and look for the cable. You may need to move the shift lever on the transmission forward to get the cable and lever to line up. There is a rubber grommet in the end of the cable that holds the cable on. If that is missing then you may need to replace the whole shift cable. Try this and see.
