Probably your shifter linkage needs an adjustment...but you should maybe rule out a bad motor mount or trans mount first. Adjustment is easy, common sense kinda thing if you've ever done any work on your vehicles it'll take longer to lift it up than to adj the linkage. Good luck!

Something inside the trans then? Internal detent maybe? Someone here will know more....pm Chevymaher, he'll have an answer for you.

ASTROFARIAN,,,
PM'd CHEVYMAHER,,,He said to check the detent spring for carcks or wear,,,
Today..dropped the tranny pan and checked the detent spring,,
It was in good condition and still stiff ,when compressing by hand,,
Guess I'll have to bring it to the Tranny Shop,,,
Unless some else has an easy fix,,,,

Thanks guys,,,Pat :ty:
