No idea i am a europeon mechanic whos never seen this car except on the TV perhaps so please try a direct question to emmisionwiz as hes a american ford dealer mechanic and will know what to look for all i can suggest is to follow your nose and and have a good look as it may be just a loose clamp on the cable or if your unlucky its a outer cable sheaf come adrtift from a connection on the end of the cable so the clamp is holding the end but the outer sheaf is adrift anything more i wouldnt know without my head under the bonnet and kicking it up the exhaust pipe

How do i adjust trans linkage on 2000 ford escort

The linkage must have worn parts, check all the rubber couplers on the shift rods for excess wear.

1970/ linkage out of order need diagram showing gear shift tabs manual transmission
I would suggest getting the service manual, that is what I do with my vehicles and when you think about the price of a mechanic is a small price to pay for having the same information dealer mechanic would use at your finger tips.
If you need anything else let me know.

If the Linkage is not damaged, you are going to need to pull the Transmission out.

The part that went bad is called the SYNCRO's

Shift position indicator has moved from D for drive to 2. How do you fix it?

First verify if it is a shift position problem or an indicator problem. If the position is wrong, there is a shift linkage from the gear shift to the transmission that can be adjusted. If it is the indicator, then it is in the gear shift mechanism proper. I don't think it is possible for the transmission to change the angular position of the control shaft that engages various gears, etc. But the linkage could change.

While troubleshooting this problem, try to figure out why it happened. Is something loose? Did something bend the linkage while you were out 4-wheeling? Is something else about to break? Are your motor mounts OK, or has the physical position of your engine relative to the gear shift mechanism changed for any reason? I never had a vehicle do this, but maybe you are just lucky.

What trans? AOD? This is 1992 F Series, all I have.

Shift Controls, Automatic Transmission The transmission shift control linkage or cable transfers the transmission operating mode from the selector lever to the transmission. The indicated transmission position on the steering column is transferred to a shift lever on the bottom of the steering column. On vehicles equipped with cable-operated shift systems, the indicated position of the transmission selector lever is transferred to the transmission through the shift cane, then to the cable, and down to the transmission manual shift lever at the transmission. On vehicles equipped with shift rod assemblies, the rod transfers the indicated transmission selector level position through a bell crank assembly to a control rod. The control rod transfers the indicated position to the transmission assembly.
Automatic Transmission Manual Linkage Adjustments
  1. With the engine stopped and the parking brake applied, place the transmission selector lever at the steering column in the D (DRIVE position) for C6 applications and in the (D) (OVERDRIVE position) for AOD and E4OD applications, and hold against the D or (D) stop by applying a three-pound force to the selector lever knob.
  1. Loosen the shift rod adjusting nut at point A. Refer to the following illustrations.
  1. Shift the manual lever at the transmission into the (D) (overdrive) position for E4OD, by moving the lever all the way rearward, then forward two detents.
  1. With the selector lever and transmission manual lever in the(D) position, tighten the nut at point A to 17-24 Nm (12-18 ft-lb) torque. Use care to prevent motion between the stud and rod.
  1. Remove the three-pound force from the steering column selector lever knob.
  1. Operate the shift lever in all positions to make certain that the manual lever at the transmission is in full detent in all gear ranges. Re-adjust the linkage if required.
  1. On F-Super Duty Chassis Cab and Motorhome and Commercial Chassis recheck for correct operation of the automatic transmission selector indicator (PRN(D)21). Refer to Section 11-04A, Steering Column, Shift Rod Within Tube. ani_caut.gif CAUTION: Under no circumstances will it be permissible to adjust linkage in any position other than the(D) position for E4OD applications.
Automatic Transmission Shift Cable Adjustment
  1. From inside the vehicle, place the column shift select lever in the DRIVE position (C6) of the OVERDRIVE (AOD and E4OD). Hang a three-pound weight on the selector lever.
  1. Raise vehicle on a hoist.
  1. Remove the shift cable from the transmission lever ball stud.
  1. Pull down the lock tab on the shift cable body.
  1. Position the transmission shift lever in the DRIVE position (C6) or the OVERDRIVE position (AOD and E4OD). This is three detents from the front-most lever position with the first position counting as one.
  1. Connect the cable end fitting to the transmission lever ball stud.
  1. Push up on the lock tab to lock the cable in the correctly adjusted position.
  1. Lower vehicle down from hoist and remove the three-pound weight from the column shift select lever.
  1. After making the adjustment, check for park engagement. Check the transmission control lever in all detent positions with the engine running to make sure correct detent/transmission actions. Readjust if necessary.

Manual transmission is hard to shift into gears, when car is not running it shifts between gears smoothly, when it is running you have to push or pull extremely hard to force into gears

It sounds like your clutch may not be releasing full. Does it shift easily if you match the speed of the engine and transmission shaft closely? Does the clutch feel normal?

Transmission popping out of gear

Worn engine mounts may let the engine and transmission move too much, also the shift linkages may need adjustment.
