Inspect and Adjust the Shift Cable

To inspect the shift cable, move the gear selector from neutral to each position. The gear selector should move smoothly and accurately to each gear position. Adjust the shift cable in the indicator does not line-up with the position indicator while in the proper detent. To adjust, loosen the swivel nut on the shift linkage. Push the manual lever at the transmission fully toward the torque converter end of the transmission. Then pull the lever back two notches from Park through Reverse to the Neutral position. Set the selector level to the Neutral position and tighten the swivel nut while holding the lever lightly toward the reverse position.
