    Question 2001 9-5 SE Automatic shifter Problems - Advise Please

    My 2001-95se Wagon (160K miles) with Auto transmission started to have some slack or play in the shifter, last night got in car and shifter just glides back and forth without engaging anything. How much trouble am I in for.

    Thanks in Advance

    Just found the ball joint came apart under the battery and the gear selector, have read logs on finding just a replacement piece vs buying the new cable for about $170.00, off to the junk yard.

    My first guess was the cable between the gear selector and transmission but I have never taken it apart myself. Good luck in finding the replacement piece.

    Frank, Thanks, it was the ball joint that attaches the cable to the arm on top of the transmission, found one at local pick and pull yard and same model year, cost $20.00, learned a lot taking if off the old car, which really helped on replacing it. Spent 5 hours on it, but could not be happier.
