TheDieselStop.Com Photo Hosting - Solving floppy automatic shift lever problem
My Shift lever was real floppy and at times would not start in park, I looked up under the dash and found two screws holding the shift bracket on the bottom end of the shift rod were loose, ( A cable that runs down to the tranny. to shift it was fastened to one end of the shift bracket) tightened them up and now it selects gears like a new truck, if you need any more info. get back to me.
Thanks, Bill Miller.
Was putting fuel in the other day and noticed the pickup was slowly rolling forward while in park and the engine off. Jumped in and set the parking brake. Today I got around to crawling under the truck and decided I needed to lengthen the shift cable a couple of notches. I couldn't figure out how to release the plastic piece on the end so decided to come in and look on the website before I broke it and stumbled on this post. Went out and checked and sure enough the torx bolts were loose. I tightened them and fixed the problem.
Thanks a lot!! A. Metcalf
