1990 Taurus SHO 5 speed has broken end on shift cable. The end looks like a half-moon and clips onto a ball at the transmission. Can it be repaired or replaced? Ford doesn't make them anymore.

    Generally, the whole cable needs to be replaced. If Ford has stopped making them, you can try to do a search on PartsVoice.com to see if someone still has a new cable lying on the shelf somewhere at a dealership. The next option is to find a good quality wrecking yard that can do a nationwide search to find one.
