ATX shifter cable adjust.

Hello every one ... This is my first post.

I have a problem with my atx focus on the shifter knob. When I go from "P" --> "D" the car seems like is on "N" then I have to move to "2" then back to "D" to make it work ... does any one any suggestions? .. I will try to do it by myself.
I was searching on the forum some thing but no succes ...

thanks a lot

greatings from mex.

Are you sure it's the shifter cable and not a faulty solenoid? Sounds like a solenoid problem

I didn't think there was a "cable." I thought it was more like a solid piece of steel cylinder.

If it feels like it's going out of gear and jerking back into gear then I'd start looking at the solenoids.

well there is a cable, it goes from the bottom of the shifter, out of the firewall, across the tranny onto the front side (facing the front of the car) where it toggles a lever that moves you through gears based on the pcm granting permission to do so

yes XP ... your right ! there is a cable that goes to a kind of chnger.
I can make the chnges by hand direct to this changer, but the shifter knob dont. That's why I suspect of that cable ... but Im newby tooo.

you're having solenoid problems

try unhooking the negative terminal on your battery for 5 minutes then hook it up again and see if the car drives any differently

ATX focus shifter cable adjust.

Okido ....
In the picture we see the posistions (aprox) corresponding at the knob. Oki the changer turns right the problem is that when we move fromn P --> D the cable moves but the black plastic part remains at its position ... when we move to "2" then back to "D" we forze that plastica part to move right.
Thats why I thinking its a "cable" adjust


thakns for your time ....
