1998 mustang gt automatic shifter LINKAGE

Just bought a 98 gt and the dealer said it needs a shifter linkage. It's an auto and its hard to shift it into drive. It runs smooth and has no trans issues

Sounds like you just need to adjust the cable.

Side of trans, if you can, get it on jack stands, have someone go through whatever gears are giving you problems and adjust the cable until it shifts smooth. I did this with mine when it didn't know it was in park and wouldn't crank

The dealer I bought the car from said it needed a "new" shifter cable linkage. They run about $100 used. What side of the trans?

Also it is hard to get it into every gear, I have to put it in "2" for "D" Drive=Neutral and 2=Drive

It should be on the drivers side in between the tranny and mid pipe. You cannot miss it.
