My son's Pickup shift linkage has come loose. Where is it located or how do you access it. Is there a diagram available?

    There is a linkage arm connected on the outside of the transmission that has a cable that runs up into the steering column and connects to the gear selector armature. The cable could be stretched, broke, or the gear selector actuator could be worn.
    You will need a good service manual to troubleshoot what may be the problem.

    a common problem with these model years ck under the dash at the botom of the stearing column there are 2 #25 torx screws that go back towards the stearing wheel that hold a bar that the shift cable connects to. take them out one at a time and lock-tite back in.should fix it right up.
