1998 Ford Explorer Q&A

1998 Ford Explorer Question: Gear shift

My gear shift is out of place,my 2nd gear is now drive and my neutral is reverse. What is going on with this? -
Answer 1
There is always an adjustment on the shift cable/shift linkage The most important thing is that the neutral safety switch is not affected or the Explorer would not start in Park and Neutral. You may find adjustment procedures in Autozone's website they have some popular workshop manuals for free on line once you register (for free) on their website http://bit.ly/autozone_repair_infoThere is a company that independent auto repair shops "buy" their information from that offer a very reasonable service to do it yourselvers. You get a one year subscription to year make and model specific repair procedures, service bulletins, component locations, wiring diagrams ect.... great quality information same as the professionals have ,much better than generic workshop manuals from parts stores, much cheaper than the factory manual. http://bit.ly/alldata_repair_manuals or try http://bit.ly/mitchell_repair_manuals_online and get an online repair manual subscription. -
