2003 mustang shifter issues

Asked by Feb 13, 2016 at 09:44 PM about the 2003 Ford Mustang Base

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Tonight the shifter would not activate proper
gears. It appeared the cable or linkage broke.
However, at the shifter I shook the cable & it
started working. After I worked thru from park to
other gears, it again felt as if something was broke.
As you shift slower, the gears engage but at time
not where shown on shifter. This is a v-6
automatic. When you can find drive, transmission
operates properly.

yeah, I saw this numerous times as a Ford Manager - these shifter do break on occasion and repair cost is up to $400 at the dealer

So is it a dhifter, cable, or linkage?
