Can anyone shed some light on this? I drove my Galaxie yesterday to a friend house, parked the car as normal. When I got ready to leave a few hours later, I started the car shifted to D2 and the linkage rod disconnected for the shifter. Since I was already in the correct gear I drove home. When I got home I jacked the car up and slid the linkage rod back into the shifter hole (only one hole on the shifter), let the car down. I started the car up in park, and it seems to be sluggish like it was in gear instead of park, but the car wasn't moving when I give it gas. I shifted out of park to what is supposed to be Reverse, and the car went into drive (wtf). I shifted to what was suppose to be neutral and it was still a drive gear. I shifted to where D1 was supposed to be and the car went into reverse. I shifted to where D2 was supposed to be and the car went into neutral, and it was in neutral in D gear as well. Now the shifter rod didn't disconnect for the shifter lever on the transmission, it only disconnected at the shifter, so no the shifter lever did not flip 180 degrees, it never disconnected for the shifter rod. Anyone have any ideas what is going on with the cruise-O-matic transmission?
