So I had a couple local shade-tree mechanics install another automatic transmission in my 91 1.9 wagon. In doing so I don't believe the shift cable was install correctly.

To start the vehicle you have to firmly press forward on the shifter and the gears do not seem to line up with the selector. I have tried adjusting the cable inside the car near the shifter, but am unable to find a point where the car will both start and the selector be in the correct position as the gear.

How do I make the shifter be the correct position and the car start without pressing forward on the shift knob.

Also, the speedometer does not work. Before it would bounce around 25mph and then be fine. I think this might be just a cable issue, so I am going to try this first.

The mounts look in good shape. If I move the gear selector shaft on top of the transmission it clicks when I push it counterclockwise (or in the park direction). It sounds similar to the click necessary to start the car when pressing the shifter forward. I am going to tear into the park/neutral switch next to figure out if that is part of the problem.

The speedometer cable end at the transmission had shifted causing the cable to disengage from the sensor. Spinning it in my hand, the speedometer moves normally, so I just need to reinstall into transmission.
