automatic tranny, gears dont line up

Hey Guys,

I have a 97 with the stock automatic transmission. My problem started today. The shifter no longer lines up with the gear that the transmission is in for some reason. I also no longer have reverse.

I have no idea where to start or what to do. The truck never even remotely had this issue.

Please help me out.

Jay

Jason,

On the drivers side underneath, check the selector connection to your transmission, the auto console connects to this and selects your gears. It may have come loose.

it is off by a full gear at least, nothing is in the correct spot and I have no reverse.

Safari Dust I just went outside and look at that connector and it is connected.It moves a little bit but nut seems to be tight.

Does this mean the console shifter is jacked up or even worse, something inside the tranny that, that thing controls ?

Jason, it may just be the shift console...I would get someone to shift the console and you look at the connector and see if its moving in small increments as they shift the console.
I assume you have check the simple things like fluid level already.

Your truck just got a new frame, right?

I am sure it is just the console shifted or the connector came loose or something.

yep, ECR just did a new frame. Problem is they are far away and i dont have cash to have this fixed.

And to be honest I have no idea where to start or what to do to even fix the shifter.

There is a cable. It has been a while since I messed with one, but it is all pretty self explanatory IIRC (this was a disco, but same set up). If you can't figure it out, I am sure ECR can walk you through it in 10 minutes on the phone.

Download the repair manual for a disco I or RRC and look at the section on adjusting the transmission shifter cable and linkage.

just got off the phone with mike. There are no adjustments to make. Back to ECR it goes to see whats wrong.

This truck is becoming a money pit. Wife said this fall the truck goes and she does not care we just spent 32k on repairs to it.

At this point I dont blame her and buying a defender was a poor choice of vehicles for us.
