Well I finally got the "new" trans in there (aod in a '87 5.0) and went to try the shift points while i still had it on the stands and it still only shifts from 1st to 2nd, no 3rd or 4th. Then I got looking around under the hood and found this cable broke. Could that be the root of my problems or does it not matter that the white plastic inner part is broke? I know I need the bushing in the linkage but I had it zip tied in there for now so it does not move. If it does not matter about the cable what could cause it? If it is the cable what is the correct name for it and would autozone or advance have it or do I have to go to a trans shop?
