My truck does not properly shift when in drive... but if I shift down to 1 then back to drive it will shift fine. What is causing this?
Sounds like the linkage between shifter and tranny has too much play.
how do I fix that?
tough to do in the driveway. can climb under and see it you can access the shift rod and check play. best bet is to take to a tranny shop to confirm it is the issue. they will have the tools and knowledge to adjust or replace any worn bushings that may be causing. could need adjusting/bushings replaced on trans side or inside the steering column.
