Tighten bolt on shifter
same thing happened to me ---all it was -was worn shifter cables underneath the shifter console---tighten em up or buy two new ones---
A 2003 Ford F-250 column gear shifter can be fixed by simply tightening it again. You can tighten it by turning the adjustment wheel on the lower right side of the steering column.

Put transmission in third gear, loosen locknut on cam adjuster, turn adjuster screw whichever direction is needed to center shifter pawl by feeling for equal free play and spring pressure when moving shift lever in both directions. Tighten locknut. If you still have shifting problems, check for correct clutch adjustment, proper amount of primary oil (one quart), warped clutch plates or a bent shifter fork.
The shifter cable connects the shifter to the transmission.
remove shifter boot/ 4 screws to floor board remove nut from cross bolt install nut on opposite side of cross bolt and tighten nut cross bolt is tapered, this will remove cross bolt
I have a 2004 blazer and my manual shifter is removed by turning the hex nut just below the actual shifter clockwise. This may sound counter-intuitive as that is the direction to tighten but this spins the nut away from the shifter so the shifter is free to spin (counter-clockwise). So.... 1. Push boot around shifter down toward floorboard to expose shaft/nut coming out of tranny/gearbox 2. Turn nut clockwise to get away from shifter ( i used a small crescent ) i used a combo of 1st gear and reverse to get the right angles to fit wrench in. 3. Turn by hand the shifter (counter-clockwise) to remove. Or use pipe wrench with cloth around shifter to start the motion if stuck. Use a thick cloth to not scratch paint. 4. Nut and shifter are both free now. 5. This is also how you adjust the height of your shifter if you wish. Hope this helps
Good ? but I have never in 23 years had to adjust the shifter.I have removed mine when doing a new clutch and so forth over the years and do not know of a adjusment that is even possible.The only choice I would know of is buy a new shifter from mazda.Check with local dealer to see what you get if you buy it.It has several components that the shifter works in conjunction with it.
