Column shifter issue
Well, I get in the truck, after the wife has been driving it for the last 2 weeks, and I notice that there is a lot of play in the column shifter, as well as the lack of a detent from park to reverse. It also seems to be sitting a little low. In drive it is directly in front of my 4x4 selector knob. I dont belive this is normal. Any ideas? It still functions normally and has a soft, but positive engagement into and out of all gears.
The key off-lock into park function is still there, but with the key on, it rolls right out of park with a little bit of effort.
The indicator is also still functional and indicates where it always has, a touch to the left of the number.
Where do I need to look and what are the parts I am likely to replace?
