Hey guys i posted bout my tranny shift linkage being messed up later last week. and after messing with it trying to fix it this past weekend i had no luck. we realigned it and it still is messed up. This is the problem, Park works, Reverse works, Neutral works, Drive is also neutral, 2nd is Drive, and First is second, and if i play with the shifter in First i can sometimes get it to go into 1st gear. HEEELP

you bent the linkage ... so now it's too short.

you should be able to just bent it back ... but i think you have to take it off to bent it back.

if it is bent, it would be worse the farther it moves. since PR and N are the closer that kind of makes since. if that is true d should be 2 or 1, and 2 might be 1. i guess it depends on how bad it is. how hard is it to get to the linkage, and how much is a new one. i never really trust "oh just bend it back, it will be ok."

ok i read it again, and since all of your gears work mechanicly it almost hast to be the shift linkage. i would go after that and see if it solves the problem.
