Default shifter randomly acting up on manual tranny

i went to work yesterday and my gear shifter seemed fine. when i got out and started driving home it was horibly loose, ive read up on this but others say that it wobbles all over in gear but mine only moves in one direction substantially and rotates very slightly counter clockwise when it does move. the direction is diagonally up to the right about 3-3.5 inches. my truck is 94 5-speed manual on the 3.0 motor. ive done some research on this and ive come down too the bushing need to be relaced is my first option (and cheapest). what do you think?

Welcome, Derek! I'd suggest pulling the boot and taking a look. Usually four bolts holding the assembly in with the bushing stuck on the end of the shifter.

Default Re: shifter randomly acting up on manual tranny

from what i am told there are 3 different transmissions for this truck that could be under it even with all the truck info(3.0L, manual, 94) that is crazy! under the boot there is a 3 bolt main cover and im looking for a bushing kit. the dealership said that i need the numbers off the tranny but you cant read the plate that im supposed to look at.

any one have this problem and know what kit i need or pieces i need?

thanks!

Unless you need to drive it to get the parts, pull that thing apart and take it to the parts store. If you got a half way decent parts guy he should be able to find you the right part.
