Shifter position

Recommended Posts

Hi guys. The dealer changed one of the shifter cables. Just had the car back. Unfortunately, they seem to have done something to the shifter. In the past, the shifter would definitely return to the middle of the gate, right at the 3-4 slot. Put it in neutral and let go, and it used to snap to that spot. Now, it kinda hangs at whatever slot you have it in. Say, I pull down to neutral from 5th, and it hangs at the 5-6 slot rather than snapping to the 3-4 slot. Or, go to neutral from 2nd, and it stays at the 1-2 slot. Still shifts ok, just does not return to that 3-4 slot in neutral.

Is there a return spring, or some mechanism that can be adjusted? Or did they break something? I hate to bring it back to the dealer, and have them claim wear and tear, replace the shifter for bucko bucks at $90/hour.

BTW, I just bought the B&K short shift kit. Will installing it solve the problem?

Thanks!!

If the shifter is already out of alignment - then installing a new shifter will not change that.

Don't they have an obligation to do the job right fix their install? They should have checked it/adjusted it when they changed the cable.

I hear you and agree. I guess it comes down to trust. They messed up, so I'm not too sure I want to bring it back to them. OTOH, I trust this forum and you, Loren.
