Thank you for allowing me to assist you, my name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist you with your concern today.
I apologize in advance but my knowledge is limited in this but instead of you waiting any longer I at the very least wanted to attempt to help you.
The rod operates a arm on the trans that bypasses internally, I would start by working the actual arm on the trans and compare how it feels to the other side. Check the fluid level and if good the only thing left is an internal trans problem.
Thank you!
