Shifter cable adjustment

03-25-2009, 07:08 AM
I am working on a 1st gen Dodge Neon (not quite sure of the year) and I replaced the Shifter cable because it broke, does anyone know how to adjust the cable, cannot get the tranny to go into park - I have to slam it forward for it to go into park or else I cannot start it.

i believe you adjust it on the transmission under the passing gear lever the gear position lever is. if you loosen the bolt you can turn the lever to adjust it. not 100% sure though.

I would drip some ATF onto the point where the shifter rod enters the tranny too. It may have gotten corroded and is stiff.

I figured it out, you have to remove the center consol and unclip the adjuster on the cable then move the selector to PARK and then make sure the transmissioniin PARK clip the reconnector the detent clip. but thanks anyways guys.
