My 05 Focus broke down, the tranny stays in neutral when I try moving the shifter. It was catching 5th but after removing the center console to inspect the cables and detaching the cables from the shift levers to feel for play or suspected broken cables, everything seemed ok. Now, after hooking the cables back up the shifter moves in complete circles without finding a single gear. I went back under the hood, disconnected the cables and started shifting the selector and shift levers by hand, all the gears seem to click in place but there seems to be very little resistance and a lot of range of motion for the shift lever to click into a gear. But I dont know if that's normal or not. So I'm just really confused because it seems as if the cable has to be longer to push the shift lever into 1, 3 or 5 but shorter to shift into 2, 4, or R, what's going on, I'm so confused. Any pointer? how can I fix this?
