Re: Mystery Shifter Problem - With Pics!
Just the pin, I would get in there asap and find it before it falls into your transmission. SERIOUSLY.
Long before I found this board and heard about the pin, my shifter was doing the same thing till one day it was stuck in 3rd gear, we were able to fish out that pin.
what happened is the pin broke at the threads and was working its way back and fourth in the housing makeing a very nice groove, you will find what I am talking about when you take the shifter housing out and look at it where the shifter stick is supposed to sit on the pin.
if you are lucky it is only a shallow groove like what happend to mine, I just got a new pin and it's been working fine since then.
it should only take you a couple of minutes to get that housing out.
clean it, inspect it, and re-grease the springs and stuff.
if you have any questions, I will try to keep an eye on the board. or you can PM me,
just to let you know I will be back off leave friday and will not be able to respond to you after the 1st of Jan for a while.
hope this helps out.
