I just was given a 1996 with 330,000 miles! Hard to believe anything works but it does...the previous owner said that second gear and fourth gear "went out", currently I'm going from first gear to third and then fifth. The shifter is pretty sloppy. I felt around for second and could not find it nor fourth. But today I happened to pull back from third and found fourth....I'm thinking second is still there as well and I need to replace the shifter linkage. It looks like I can do it without dropping the engine or transmission, but it looks terribly tight. Has anyone experience with this challenge?
