I've got a 92 Taurus L. Just finished putting a rebuilt transmission in
it and dropping the engine back in. Everything seems to work smoothly
except for shifting. Reverse drops in fine, and manually downshifting
to 1st works. But in either drive or overdrive it seems to be trying to
start in second and won't drop down to 1st, or shift at all.
Speedometer works fine and I've gotten it up to 30, but it won't
shift... I've been told I might just have to adjust the linkage from
the column to the transmission but despite my 'fiddling' I can't seem
to get it to settle down and work right... Any advice?
