Congrats on such a money AND time saving diag!

Off subject but I need to replace my shifter cables also bc as the weathers got colder (only on cold starts) after the cars been sitting overnight/etc it's hard to get into R. I was going to buy brand new cables from Ford bc I get OEM parts at cost through the Ford dealership my fathers the Service Director at.

Where did you buy, what brand of cables did you buy and how much were they?

Yor reply would be greatly appreciated!
