My Mustang is an automatic. The shifter in the console sticks when changing gears. At times, I have to keep it half way into another gear or else I hear grinding or the car won’t go into gear. Is it my transmission or my console?
Cable or cable adjustment.
Probably the shifter is out of adjustment or there is something broken in it. It is hooked to a cable that moves a lever on the side of the transmission. Have it looked at immediately by a good shop. This is not good for the longevity of the transmission. Keep this up much longer, and it will be the transmission ($$$$$$).
