Re: transmission problems

If the linkage or range selector switch are out of adjustment, they can cause shifting problems. The plug to the switch can get corrosion and not give the right signal. Also, make sure it's seated properly.

Re: transmission problems

That's the switch on the left side of the transmission where the linkage connects.
