This weekend, after pulling up some shrubs in L 4x4, I began having issues shifting from the dash. After lifting the bed, the cable looked to be kinked with extra slack. I tapped the lever with a hammer and the Ranger shifted to neautral and then to L and H. I had to do this a few times to get it back in the garage. I searched the forum for "shifter issues" and I got lost in all of the posts. Do you guys recommend a new shifter cable? I am due for oil change, but have fairly low hours on the machine. Do I need to service the transmission as well?
