So I've had the car now for a month and everything seems to be more or less perfect for a 20 year old LR.

However, this past Monday Nick D'Amico and I checked out Cow Mt. after picking up his RRC from TigerDan's and it was there I realized when trying to drive down some steep inclines that I can't manually shift into 2nd or 1st.

When its in drive it hits all the gears just fine but no luck when going the manual route.

Has anyone experienced this or have any suggestions?

Dan mentioned that the linkage might be bound up on something. So I'll look at that as well.

Any and all thoughts are welcomed.

So will the shifter physically not move into 1 or 2, or it just stays in Drive when the shifter is in 1 or 2?

The linkage makes sense. You might check that nothing is jammed inside the gear shifter housing, the cable moves freely, and that the selector lever on the transmission is moving freely.

Also, I now have some parts trucks if you need anything.

So the shifter itself won't move past 3rd. If it's in drive it goes through the gears just fine.

Yeah, I'd like to connect with you on the parts. Connect later this week? I can give you a ring if you'll be free.

So to clarify when operating the shifter it moves easily from park all the way to drive. When y try and pull it rearward its like it hits a wall. No binding or tension just stops. Car drives perfectly fine in drive. My thought was an obstruction in the console itself physically blocking movement of the lever.

On a side note I drove my rrc t our cabin for the last 2 days.its snowed 3 times and with the night temps below freezing my shifter is noticeably stiffer to operate in the morning when its cold.

My vote would be with the shifter obstruction from the cabin. Perhaps someone was using the gear selector as a piggy bank.
