    Get under there and look for one.

    With my 2wd Dually I am all linkages. If I have the problem it is because a bushing has come out.

    Is the 4x4 on when you are doing this?

    What happened prior to the condition?

    driving and tried to park?

    How long have you had the truck?

    Im gonna say no to stretched cable theory-

    Bad cable, wrongly adjusted cable, stretched cable- all can only eff things up in one direction, not be fine in middle and off at both ends.... stretched cable will shift it all one way or the other, not both...

    Missing linkage bushing makes sense- slop in linkage makes it unable to push as far as it should either direction, making gears at each end of shift pattern not work, but middle ones will when pulled a lil past to engage...

    My $0.02 take it or leave it Welcome to OF by the way

    you got a real good point I'll have to put it in drive and check it out then, but for some reason no park 2nd or low. I'll check bushings also thanks

    yeah, even can check without it running or shifting gears- there should be very little play in the linkage bits- just enough to move freely... wiggle test ftw

    Well found that lower cable is the problem. Plastic tube that cable slides in in between tranny linkage and where cable mounts to tranny is broke allowing it to flex when pushing and not allowing it to pull all the way back. Thanks for the input This seems to be a great site I'll be back lol

    thats why you throw it in reverse pull or press the e brake till it stops moving then put it in park so the weight of the vehicle rest on the e brake and not the transmission.
