I have a powerglide tranny with the standard two speed floor shifter. It will go into "P" "R" "N" and "D" but will not go into "L". And the car doesnt get up and go when you start in "D"(its a slug). I think its gotta be the shifter I just dont know how to fix it. Can anybody help me. Thank you.
pop off the shifter cover, look down in there, there is a nut down by the base of the shifter that attaches the shift cable to the shifter, adjust it so that it shifts into low and tighten it back down, I've had the same thing happen to me several times. good luck
