It has check wngine light on the mechanic who worked on it said its showing the transmission code and I just started it and it popped loid like it backfired so I shut it off went to put it in neutral and it popped hard into gear


If your mechanically inclined, disconnect your cat. Sounds like what my Dodge ram did and ended up being a clogged cat. Let me know what ya find if you do it.

I took my center counsel apart and the rod for my shifter I believe is broke I put it down into (L) and can move it up n down and side to side with my fingers


Have you looked at the transmission at the shifter lever to see if it moves? Have someone move the shifter and that'll give you a definite answer.
