Make sure lever on the transmission is tight. These are prone to cracking. SET PARKING BRAKE....slide under vehc. and have someone wiggle shifter between park and rev. and look for play in any parts. Does it want to roll away at times?

Aaron Webb

it will drift a little


Drift? If all the shift linkage is tight, try adjusting shifter cable.
