I would suggest rotating it back the way it was... Sounds like you have improperly adjusted it.

Gary thank you for your response ! And excuse my ignorance but, by trying to readjust back into proper place, now my concearn is; will I permanently damage the transmission? Is that even a possibility ? Luckily i have another car identical that i can use to make sure i place back in the same direction but still a little nervous about it since its my daily driver.


Drive, if you can, or tow to a transmission shop and have them do it right. Don't risk what you don't know how to do.
