So my shifter is really loose and its hard to get into first gear , and sometimes I try and out it into first and it goes to third , and by loose shifter ui mean when i put it into first I can move it around like if it was in neutral , and I was wondering if there was anybody that has a diy video or something to tighten up the shifter linkage

You obviously searched the forum for "shifter linkage" right?

If he did, he might've found the thread he started on this topic yesterday.

Are you fucking stupid?


Sounds like you need a shift adjustment. Make sure you get it delt with before it costs you a transmission. (happened to me)

Its gonna be alittle tight cause you have a prefacelift console. you could remove the console if your having trouble.

I would think it to be more worn then loose. For a guaranteed fix replace your stuff with the below

You should probably just take it to a mechanic.
