I'm 90% sure this just happened to my SVT - although I can get it into 3rd, neutral (which is back around where 4th should be), and 5th - if I go into "neutral" first I can shift it. My mechanic is saying that to get the shift tower off, it's going to be a few hours because he has to remove the engine mount, then to get the cables lined back up, he needs some special tool that the ford shop manual references. Is he full of it and it's time for me to find another mechanic, or am I just going to have to suck it up? Also, how to get this special tool that he is talking about?
