I got a new cable for my console (automatic) and it has a bit of slop in it. I have adjusted it at the trans and at the shifter and it either has to be pulled back past where it should rest or you have to push it beyond where it supposed to go. I want a good firm gear selection. Any ideas or hints?

Is the slop because the holes are too large? maybe a sleeve will help. If the ends are moving on cable at the crimp it's another cable.
Also make sure the adjusters are tight

The cable is from Classic and the holes are fine it seems to have a spring action to it.I am half tempted in putting on the junky cable that came with the shifter which is different than the new one just to see if it is the cable.

spring action in the cable- sounds like too sharp of a bend somewhere, one other thing to check is make sure you have a good engine to fire wall ground, with out a good ground current passes through the shifter cable, melts the inards and gives it that springy feel.
