Help someone please.. My trans gear shift cable broke. I put a new one on but I am stuck in gear and can not get it back in park to start truck back up. I am so confused I cant even get the trans to manually shift back in gear. I have to get this thing up and running. I cant ride my Harley in the rain to go to work tomorrow.

Dumb question. . . Did you run the new cable exactly the same as the old? And did you try to shift by hand on the tranny itself?

Sounds like something in the tranny. Maybe that is why the cable broke?

DOH! That is a very good possibility.

I knew all this already I was looking for some ideas to what exactly it could be some kind of goal to shoot for to fix it myself. Right now I am on a champagne and caverar lifestyle with a mad dog 2020 and cheese and peanut butter cracker budget..
