Automatic Transmission Linkage

Hello All,

I have a 1999 TJ Sport with an automatic.

When I shift in to "D" its as if I am still in neutral, I must shift down to "2" for it to shift out of neutral, I can then shift back to "D" once I feel the transmission engage.

Is there a linkage that I can adjust to fix this?

Also, does the skid plate support the transfer case?

The linkage is adjustable where it passes through its forward-most mounting bracket bolted to the transmission on the driver's side. There is a lock clip that is pulled partially out that releases the cable so it can be moved forward or rearward as required.

And yes the skidplate is the rear-most support for the engine/transmission/t-case assembly.

Thanks for your help Jerry!

I think I have found what you talking about, but how do you actually adjust it.

What piece is the locking clip?

Yep that is it but it has been 4-5 years since I had to adjust it so I can't tell you exactly where the clip is that needs to be partially pulled out to unlock it. I'd clean it up and with a good light, you should be able figure it out. I didn't now where the clip was either until I needed to release it to adjust mine.

...Now I know how to adjust the trans cable on my 99 TJ auto which only lights/shifts to R when it is pushed just before P.
