that's what I thought just wanted to make sure thanx for the info.Ok if you wiggle the shiftier and it goes out at certain points one of two things it can be the replacement switch is wrong , something not right in the transmission. So here is what you can do, take the new one back out and compare the length from the base to the tip, make sure the metal gasket or washer is installed on the new one, this is important. If it still does it then you can experiment adding more thin washers to it until it stops . if that don't cure the problem then it may have internal problems with the selector tab that comes in contact with the switch, but I'm sure if it don't one of those ideas will do the trick.Would you like a live phone chat to clarify things it's up to you. Hope this gives you some ideas to solve your problem and if you require further assistance I'll be happy to do so. Thank you for using Just Answer.
