another weekend cut short.
well guys , after planning this trip for the last couple of months , i got 75 miles into our Aravipa canyon trip and had to turn around a limp home ,
after 25 miles of pavement we made our first stop and wheni got back in to leave my shifter said Hi and so did the dash , but it acted like i was in two gears at once . shifted to rev and it moved back but got stuck in rev. got out rocked the car and shifted back into hi and off i went thinking crap what now ???? it did this 3 more times till we all stopped for lunch and i decided to mess with the shift cable and linkage . after lots of adjusting and taking the cable off the shifter and moving it maually i found that i could reverse and no hi or lo , or i could get hi and no low or rev , and to get either one i had to move the shifter back and forth a bunch and blip the throttle ,
i had to turn around and limp it back 25 miles to phone service and have a trailer come and get me . if i shut the car off or let it idle it will drop out of gear with out moveing the the shifter . i havea feeling some thing came loose on the main shft in the trans because the detents still feel right but theres no gear there . and the way it locked two gears in at once .
anybody had anything like this yet ?
