Robert....cable snapped,cheater bar...go a little easier,my friend! Next thing will be a bigger hammer. So,when you shift to low or 2nd,are you saying when you put it in D it doesn't shift or it physically won't go to the D position?
Yeah, I sometimes get carried away, or should be... But yes, the trans will not shift into drive or any thing above drive.PRN. physically or otherwise.
Is there something inside the trans that would be moving into a position that would block the manual valve from moving when the engine is running? Like I said above its the same with two different valve bodies.
