are you talking about the shifter linkage?where when you pull it down in gear it moves the shifter on the tranny.

if it is the linkage you should be abable to start in park and count as you pull it in gear.You should feel it click into everygear or you could have someone lay under it and watch the trans leaver and make sure it is moving.i would be suprised though if this is the problem but hey you never know

Yes thats the one right next to the pan on the tranny, i put it in neutral in the car then took the nut off and pulled the cable closer toward the middle and bolted it back and i was testing it and it started to shift right then stopped, the car got a little hot because the fans dident kick on(guess ill have to rewire them theyre giving me problems) then i cranked it again and went to drive it back home and it wont move ,it ran and when u gave it gas the engine reved but went nowhere in any gear, i couldent tell if the linkage had came off or something but i got as far under as i could and felt and it seemed like it was all there, i tightened it tight as i could , ........have to pull it home in the morning, great, lovely night, dont know what to check now , any ideas? also where exactly is that supposed to be there is about 3/4 inch space where that nut tightens , when in neutral should it be completly pulled out all the way to the front, in the middle, or in the back before i tighten it
