No, eveerything works perfect, it''ll rev up normal. all power options work(radio, etc) everything is perfect, it just wont come out of nuetral. i try to shift with the lever and it just feels loose(not sure on a word) it just goes up and down through all the gears (P, R, N, D, 2, 1)

there are no check dash lights on either

Climb up under your truck and check the shifter linkage from the shift lever to the transmission and see if it is all connected. There are plastic clips that hold all the linkage together and one might have broken. WHich would allow the shift indicator on your steering column to move, but the tranny isnt acutally shifting.

If everything is connected at the transmission point, engage your emergency brake and have someone watch the shift linkage at the tranny while you move the lever at the column to see if the shift linkage is actually moving.

If the rod just popped off, the ball or the socket that clips over it is worn out. I have never had this problem, but I am assuming that you will have to replace that little bracket with the ball on it and/or the rod with the clippy. If youare gonna keep driving it, I would use the emergency brake anytime you park it, in case it pops off again. I am sure Steve83 or someone on here, knows EXACTLY what part you have to replace. I will do some looking around to see if I can find a part # for ya.

1) EIther its worn out and popped off on its own
2) Someone is playing a practical joke on you
3) Someone was trying to tow it without having the keys, pop off the rod and push it into nuetral by hand (Dont ask how I know)
4) Someone was going to steal it.

I am betting one of the two pieces got warn out and fell off when you hit a big bump in the road or something and you didnt notice it cause you were already in gear.

Grab a pair of channel locks or vise grips and put one side on the inside of the "L" bracket that has the little ball and the other side of the tool on the "clip" and just squeeze until it pops all the way on.

It shouldnt take that much force at all. It will be butted up against the little lip that you see in the picture.

Why are they towing your truck?

If you haven't done anything wrong and you have a parking permit and all that jazz, then you should definitely get ahold of whoever is giving the tow company the authorization to tow your truck, and let them know you're going to file harassment charges, or whatever other BS you can make fly.

Get a permit!!! Geez man, you're still wondering why they're doing it? They're not harassing you if you're parking illegally and they tow you; you're being a pain in the arse by not following the school's rules, plain and simple. Obviously tickets haven't worked (or you're parking in a really bad spot), so they're hoping towing your rig and having to pay a fee each time you want it back will teach you something.

thing is, i dont pay the fee. my hockey coach owns the towing place, its just a pain going there to pick it up, then they **** with all the brakes n shit. as you can see.

and again, long story short, cant get a permit
