Gear Selector Needle Problem?
I own a 1999 F-150 Lariat 4x4 and replaced the automatic transmission less than 30,000 miles ago at 80,000 miles. I have had zero problems since that time and that has been 2 years ago now.
I drove it to work this morning and parked my truck at around 6:45 AM. When I left work this afternoon at around 3:15 PM, the automatic gear shift display on the column was all jacked up. When I placed it in reverse, the needle was actually in between the R and the D. I placed it back into Park and the needle would only go between the P and R. I went thru each gear and although it runs fine, it for some reason is displaying the needle in between each of the gears. What gives?
It was working fine when I drove to work every other day, including this morning. I park my truck in a garage every night and was curious if their is something frozen up somewhere? It has been bitter cold all weekend here in my home state of Kansas with lows around the zero degree to single digit mark and highs around 19 or so in the daytime the past few days. Is it possible that something is just freezing up or what? Like I said, so far the transmission is doing fine and this just started less than hour ago when I drove home from work.
Any help would be appreciated.
