the linkage popped off of it's mounting bracket because the white plastic "holding nut"(I am sure that isn't the right term) backed off. I tightened it as tight as I could by hand,didn't want to put pliers on it for fear it would break. Transmission shifts better/more crisp now then it has for a long time!! Obviously this nut has been working itself loose for awhile. Is there anything I can do to stop the nut from backing off again or is it something I just have to remember to check every now and then? Glad it was an easy/free fix,thanks for the quick answers!! I thought it had to be something under the hood,but it was raining and I was pissed and tired this morning,wasn't in the mood to get wet checking it out.
