94 Villager AT Shifter Problem


The shifter goes into the incorrect gear for what is showing on the dash.

For example:
A little left of Park = Park
Reverse/Neutral/Drive = Neutral
A little right (almost gear 2) of Drive = Drive

Once I have found the gear and the shifter is set, the handle has enough play in it that allows it to rest over the correct slot.

It started after I put the car into neutral from drive without pulling the handle back but instead just pushing it to the left. When I went to put it back into drive, it was still in neutral.


The shifter linkage is improperly adjusted or just worn out. A good independent mechanic will get you going in the right gear in no time.
